Tiggy is still doing well.... 985 grams well in fact. He has now more than doubled his size since he came to winter with us. I am starting to worry that he won't want to leave. I did give him a little exercise outside the other day. But I think it wore him out as he hid in his little bedroom (which is now an a4 paper box with a door cut out of the side) all day. His little igloo bed room became too small too quick.
I don't know if you all know that Hedgehogs once you get to know them are quite noisy and not the quiet creatures I once thought. But they are pleasant noises and this morning I actually heard him chirp. It was just three small chirps, a bit like a bird makes or the purr of a cat. Then he proceeded to do his grunts and huffs and puffs. Hogs are also quite noisy when they eat with lots of slurps and crunches and smacks. And I love to hear him snuffle around sniffing the new bedding or when we put him out for some exercise and it is something new to him.
I am still very much enamored with my little prickly friend and it is probably a good thing he has prickles as otherwise I would be giving him a cuddle like I do Jingles.
The photo is one I took while he was sitting on Brian's lap while I cleaned his cage. He is usually quite sleepy when I do it and as you can tell all he wants to do is go back to bed.
And another exercise photo.
