I don't want one myself, but I just came back from a gathering with friends and one of them had a hedgehog with her that she was showing around and I never knew until tonight that hedgehogs could be pets. I'm mostly into cats and dogs myself though, but it was pretty cute and I learned an awful lot about them. :)

Always wash your hands real well after handling them and don't touch your face while you are holding one...Hedgehogs can carry and transmit foot and mouth disease...salmonella...ringworm...and may carry various other viral infections....some states have outlawed them as pets...

Was the hedgehog named Sonic?
