Animals Tumblr Themes

My name is Caitlyn and this blog is dedicated to my baby hedgehog, Dexter. I got him from my friend on Nov. 2. She got him September 01, 2012. He is an Algerian Grey, born on June 30, 2012.
I hope you enjoy seeing him as much as I love owning him! ^.^
Any tips/advice are very welcome on this blog. If not for me, but other potential owners as well <3

This is what has been said. And idk why. I don&#8217;t believe I&#8217;m being trolled either. If this person is mistaken, just apologize. I know some hedgies look similar&#8230; But don&#8217;t accuse me of stealing a hedgehog I&#8217;ve had for a year and a half, please!

This is what has been said. And idk why. I don’t believe I’m being trolled either. If this person is mistaken, just apologize. I know some hedgies look similar… But don’t accuse me of stealing a hedgehog I’ve had for a year and a half, please!

So I have a personal Instagram, like many of us today. Well I posted the same photos there that I did a few weeks ago (the one of me holding him and my selfie with him)… Well I’m being accused of stealing these pictures. Someone is trying to tell me that this is some hedgehog named John Watson. Now you all know that it is DEXTER and that’s the only hedgehog I have. So I’m being accused of stealing either the hedgehog or the picture of said hedgehog. So I need your help. It’s being specifically mentioned on the picture of me holding him. If you see this picture, and someone is claiming my baby as there own, I need to know.
This is unacceptable and I don’t appreciate being harassed about it. This person refuses to believe me and I need your help. If you want, my Instagram is Caitybarre. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this and for always supporting dexter and I! We both love you!

It’s been a while, but we’re here once more! Working on our relationship more everyday.
So after an amazing day with my best friend and my little sister, I came home and spent time with my little guy.
Cleaned his home and gave him a bath. I really love bath time. I feel like he’s actually the most calm he ever is.
I’m already trying to think of what I can do for his second birthday in June. I wasn’t here for his first so I wanna make this one special. Any ideas from someone who’s thrown a hedgie birthday party?
I’m also not taking the other hedgehog. I, unfortunately, don’t have the time or room for another one. I also don’t think there’s room in my heart for another. Kudos to all of you who have more than one, though!

My darling and I! One of the longest relationships I&#8217;ve ever had!

My spiny baby! &lt;3

My spiny baby! <3

I know this is usually a hedgehog strict blog but this is a person who is more important to me than even dexter. We’ve been together our whole lives and she’s very special to me. It would mean the world to me if the hedgie loving world could sign this and then help spread the word. 
Anyone who is as amazing as her, who doesn’t let their disability own them, is trying to make a difference in the world with everything she does, deserves the care she needs to continue in that light. 
I, Caitlyn, would truly appreciate it. I know she would too. We’ve already reached 5,700 signatures, your vote means everything if we’re going to win! Let’s keep it up and show Medicaid we won’t stand for this! 
Thank you! 

I do feel quite special when I drink out of this cup, yes I do!

The most frustrating valentine&#8217;s date ever!

The most frustrating valentine’s date ever!

Anonymous said: I literally bought that same stuffed hedgehog for my girlfriend (I have a hedgie) but I must remain anonymous so she doesn't know

Niice! I adore it! It’s bigger than I expected too! Haha

I made this yesterday! I wanted a simple collage so I made it! I&#8217;m gonna add his name and birthday on it. I just love him to pieces!

I was just about to take dexter out and hold him but he fled under his wheel and I can’t get to him =( so… Tomorrow it is!
Tomorrow: he’s getting a bath, clean home, wheel, etc. and then I’m moving his home. It’s too low and I can’t get to it easily. So I think in order to fix our relationship, making him more accessible will help!
And confirmation! I will be acquiring another hedgehog very soon! I can’t wait for you and I to meet him! Not giving away any details on him away, though! All in due time, loves!
Well just a quick update! Didn’t wanna leave you hanging! Oh this year is gonna be amazing!

Happy valentine&#8217;s Day early to me! Couldn&#8217;t resist this fellow. Purple is my favorite color. Happy to have a purple hog plush now! ^.^

So… Happy New Years!
We’ve been MIA for quite a while but that’s hopefully gonna change. We’re gonna bring this blog back to life!
I’ve honestly not been holding him as much as I should but I’m changing that! So you’re gonna see us bond all over again! Very confident we’ll be happier together more than ever soon! Gonna work really hard to be a better hedgie mom again.
Not to get anyone too excited, I never expected this, but we may be adding a new member to our family! My friend has to rehome her baby and I’ve put my name out there that I’ll take him. So this blog may become interesting in that way too.
We’ll see! New year, new us! ^.^ hopefully we stick around this time!

Our most recent pictures together!

It’s been a while… And I feel awful.
Tonight I found out how lucky I actually am. I dropped something in my room and it hit dexter’s cage. He didn’t even huff, so I didn’t get concerned. Well a few hours later I turned on my bedroom light (i didn’t during the incident) and found out that the item had knocked his cage door open! I’m so lucky that I still have a hedgehog in there. If he got out, I would never find him. My room is such a mess.
I hand fed him some yogurt treats. The wildberry are easier to avoid bitten fingers, and he promptly anointed after one nibble. I think it’s a compliment when he does it.
He’s gonna need a bath so on my next day off (I have no idea when this is -.-‘) he will get one, a clean cage and a clean wheel… I’ve been bad about keeping up with his wheel.
I think that’s really everything… I’m sorry there’s no photos, I was enjoying the time with him and the camera makes him curl up most of the time. He just hates it. Next time, though! Promise!
