Guest Selfies today!

Hi Ya ,Today we have a guest selfie....We have Pup the Hedgehog making an appearance....

The reason Pup was out of her nest box with mummy is,Pup has been poorly last week she lost some weight and wasn't eating quite as much as she normally would.Plus her poops are a bit off.So she had another visit to the vets Tuesday and it looked like she still had a little bit of mange so they gave her another injection at a higher dose and they gave her a 10 day course of antibiotics for the poops.Well mum weighed her 2 days ago and she had still lost a bit of weight but not at the same rate as last week and today mum weighed her again and she only lost 1 or 2 grams so she is stabilising and it looks like she is eating more too.Fingers and Paws crossed she stops losing and starts to gain weight again.On a plus side Mum said Pup is being a real trooper with taking her antibiotics and seems to turn around to climb on mummy for snuggles and warmth so no curling up and stabbing mummy with her spines except for when mummy has to take her out of her nest box....Mummy said gardening gloves are a must for that but she can't wear them when giving Pup her meds by syringe so it good she isn't scared of mummy and trusts her.


  1. I think this is the first hedgehog selfie I've seen. Pup did a great job. With your mom's devoted care, I bet Pup will be feeling better soon. Can hedgie be wrapped in a small towel while getting her medication? It's sweet that she snuggles up to stay warm.

    1. Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to wrap pup up in a towel as that would scare her and she would ball up,So I have to rely on her to trust me and a lot pf patience on my part to get her to open her mouth to put the syringe in to give her the meds.Wild Hedgehogs are shy and quite grumpy by nature so quiet but persistence is needed when treating them,xx Rachel Speedy's mum

  2. Awww! So good to know Pup is doing so well with your staff's care ministrations. Takes a great selfie, too!

  3. Nice selfie. I hope she feels better soon. Your mum is so kind to take her to the vet.

  4. She might have gotten scared of the New Year's celebrations.

  5. That would be hard if Pup used his quills. Glad he seems to be stabilizing.

  6. Lulu: "That's good news about Pup! I am sending tail wags that she continues to feel better!"
    Charlee: "And we're also sending purrs!"
    Chaplin: "Including that nobody gets stuck by accident while giving Pup her medication!"

  7. Those are terrific selfies and I'm glad Pup is so good with the medicine!

  9. Aww, I always like seeing updates on the little hoggies.

  10. I hope she keeps getting better. To stop feeling poorly and turn things around takes a few days and antibiotics can be slow but once they act Pup will feel a lot better!

    Happy Sunday Speedy.

  11. SPEEDY! Good morning! It's good to see that Pup is on the road to recovery and that Mummy is helping along. What great a great caregiver she is!

  12. Loved selfies of Pup. Hope all goes well and Pup is feeling better soon.
