We recently lost our precious little hedgehog, Tiny Paul the Spiny Ball. That was a traumatic night, but he was well-loved, and he knew it. He died in my boyfriend's arms, of old age, after a life of joy and affection. He will be sorely missed, but just last week we put a deposit on a new baby hedgie, who will be ready to come home to us in a week or so. We can't wait!
I'll soon be posting some anecdotes about all the many, many wonderful animals I have known throughout my life, and I'll give updates on the new baby as they happen. Thanks for reading!
