I am looking for a new home for my VERY FIRST hedgehog, Scout. She is just about two years old, very cute, and in need of a home in the San Diego area. There are conditions for her adoption:
1. You may NOT breed her. She is too old to breed and you would be endangering her life if you did.
2. You MUST purchase these items in order to keep her happy and healthy:
*Purina Indoor Cat Chow
*Aspen shavings for bedding
*A ZooMed adhesive heater
*A LARGE igloo (so that she can nest and hide)
*A small/medium ceramic bowl for water and another for food
*A plastic storage container that is at least one and a half feet tall and three feet long.
*A Silent Spinner brand wheel-- Large
3. The wheel is NOT an option. She is overweight because she has had five litters of hoglets and needs to run it off. It's definitely worth getting for entertainment value as well because watching a hedgehog run in a wheel is freaking ADORABLE!
4. You must be willing to keep in contact with me for the remainder of her lifespan. I don't expect us to be best buddies, I just want updates every now and then. You can post them on my Facebook page or text them to me. Since she was my very first hedgehog I want to make sure that she is well cared for.
The adoption fee for Scout is $100/OBO. Hedgehogs can live between six and ten years and since she is incredibly healthy, she is guaranteed to give you many years of happiness. She is shy but will warm up to you if you hold her often and let her out of her cage/habitat to explore (supervised). She loves being out in grassy areas so that she can pick around for insects. She is VERY fast so keep a close eye on her! She also does well with other pets so you have no need to worry about how she might get along with your dog or cat.
