Wow! So many cool pets in this thread! I'm surprised that I haven't seen a hedgehog yet. Allow me to introduce my grumpy baby, Sebastian. He was named after the hedgehog in The Hobbit that belonged to Radagast the Brown.
Despite his oh-so-cute-and-cuddly appeal, hedgehogs are not cuddling/petting animals. If properly socialized, they can be loving, but they'll never respond in the manner that a cat or dog might. In fact, most never seek affection from their owners and could really care less if you bothered them at all. They're fussy, sometimes mean, paranoid, and downright filthy little things. But I wouldn't trade that prickly, vampire-teeth-having ball of spikes for the World.
He enjoys bananas, long walks on the bed, and candlelit rooms. Seriously, though. He hates being awake with the lights on.
