Meet the newest addition to the Lawley household:

Photo of Cecil, our new pet hedgehog

This is Cecil, an African pygmy hedgehog. The photo of him is from the website of the store where we purchased him, but once he gets more settled in at our house, we'll be putting lots of photos of him up on my Flickr account.

He's adorable. And no, he's not uncomfortable to hold. He's quite friendly and inquisitive once you scoop him up.

For more information on hedgehogs as pets, take a look at the excellent Hedgehog Central site. And if you're looking to buy a pet hedgehog in the Seattle area, Animal Talk seems a good place to do so.

I guess Profgrrrrl's Hedgical Trevor (who has his own blog must be an African pygmy hedgehog too. Very cute!

Cecil is adorable (and it does look like he's aware of that fact).

Congrats! We have had our hedgie for a year now and couldn't be happier! Hedgehogs makes wonderful pets! There are just two important things to remember:

1. Don't wake your hedgehog up during the day. Its a nocturnal animal, and will have severe problems adapting if you try to manipulate its internal clock.

2. When its awake, try to handle it as much as possible. The more it gets accustomed to the smells of your family, the safer it will feel. After a while, when they know you smell and voice, most hedgies will actually start to come looking for you when they smell or hear you.

If you have any questions, please feel free to mail me! =)

Awww, what a cutie!!
