A water ballet

Just given Eric a bath.  It isn’t to keep him clean, as he is quite a clean hedgehog but it is good exercise for him.  He lives in a large rabbit cage in our guest bedroom but as hedgehogs can cover a couple of miles in the night when they are roaming around in the wild for food, he needs to be able to get some exercise while he is staying with us and so he gets some paddling and a swim in the bath every day. 294 more words

Another Eric update

Eric now weighs 612g. Yay!!

He is a lot more settled and comfortable with us around him now, and I think that is why his appetite is getting better day by day. 34 more words
