I am super happy at the moment, I'm the proud mummy of a.....can you guess? :))

I've been looking into becoming an owner of one since last summer (reading lots of books, advice, forums etc.) and myself and the OH agreed on possibly getting one later this year but i had a suprise waiting for me when i went to use my mother in laws sewing machine this afty :)) They've been hiding him away from me since last week! I first noticed him in the PAH adoption center a month ago and fell in love i cant believe hes mine!

I've got 100 saved up for him, so lol i think that'll go towards his future vet fee's and more toys!

Can you guess what he is?

Photos soon to follow!

Is he another piggy or a rabbit?

I was going to say pygmy hedgehog but I doubt many of them turn up at pets at home :))

Hehe they are arent they? I'm ordering him a zoozone cage as they got him a mini duna (i dont want to seem ungrateful but i know this is much too small for him esp as he grows hope they dont mind too much :) ) Ooo netpetshop good idea I'll have a browse photos soon!

Btw what do you use as a playpen? We're currently using the bath, but i wanted to make/buy him something that can be used when people are using the bath! :))
