I was talking to my husband last night as he stepped to the front door. Next thing I know he had disappeared! Finally he came back with this little ball in his hands. He had spotted the hedgehog on the front porch and it took off so he ran after it! It was so cute. They have pygmy hedgehogs here, and this one was most likely a full grown adult. He had all his quills out, so he felt like we were holding a little cactus, but his little face was so cute, and he would start to unroll and then just close up to a little ball. We tried to feed it a carrot, but it just wanted away from us. No, we did not keep it, but if we find a baby one we just might. We read about them after it left, and they say they can make pretty good pets! It sure was cute!
