We knew it was coming but I still wasn’t ready. I came in early in the morning to talk to Mom. Hedgie was just laying in the middle of his cage. We pulled him out to check him out and he just wobbled side to side and fell over. I knew it was time. I don’t want to see him suffer. He has been my beloved pet for 5 years. He was a huge responsibility but I had some many wonderful memories. Saying goodbye. My heart was broken. We took Hedgie to a vet and had him peacefully put to sleep. They vet brought me a small vial with a few of Hedgie’s quills. I am going to have him cremated as well. It was a rough day! Really rough!
