our new pet coco!

i'm truly allergic to almost every animal :(
unfortunately for my kids - that has meant, no dogs....
however we recently got a hedgehog, b/c there's little to no dander/fur.
when she was home for only 6 days, i peeked into her cage and saw she had a little baby?!!!  what the heck??!!
she labored, and eventually had 4 in total.
1 little one didn't make it past the 4th day and the others are now doing really well at a whopping 1 week.
here's a little sneak peek at how teeny tiny these little creatures are!

i know the quality is kinda horrible, but you get the idea!


  1. that is the cutest pet ever!!!! and her little babies- oh my goodness!!!!!! congrats to the new mama, and to your family!

  2. This is adorable! Baby hedgehogs are the cutest :)

  3. now how cute are they Ive never seen a baby hedge hog congrats to mama coco xoxo sherri

  4. Wow- talk about a little surprise! Are you going to keep the babies?

    I bought a chinchilla when I was 15 years old after much begging and pleading with my mom & dad. He just passed away last month. He was 19.5 years old. Amazing how such a little creature can become such a big part of your life.

  5. thanks guys....no unfortunately we won't be keeping any babies, we'll have to sell them between 6-8 wks, b/c boys and girls will keep reproducing! plus, they're more comfortable as solitary animals, as that's how they are in the wild. it's crazy how much i've learned about hedgehogs in the last 2 wks, haha!

  6. i wanna a baby hedgehog! soooo adorable!

  7. Congrats on the babies! We had a hedgehog for many years and they are very smart and great little pets.

    Hope you're having a wonderful week :O)


  8. Oh my gosh they are so cute!!! Hedgehogs make for great pets. It sounds like what happened to us all the time with gerbils. They told us male male or female female but always wound up male female with lots of babies!!
    Enjoy them!

  9. Oh how cute! They are so tiny! I don't know much about hedgehogs but it looks like a fun pet.

  10. OMG!! That is one of the cutest things I've ever seen. : )

  11. That is the cutest thing ever! I hadn't heard of people having hedgehogs as pets, but it makes total sense. I'm sure the surprise babies was a bit of a shock, but it must be pretty cool watching them grow.
