On January 23, 2004, I brought Hildegard the hedgehog home from the pet store to replace my dear departed ball python Fester.

Hildy was a fun pet to have. She never really warmed up to anyone, and was usually grumpy, but that was okay. Once I found her a nice big cage, she pretty much kept to herself, although I'd hear it if her food bowl was empty or if her water needed changing. She liked her toys and loved toilet paper tubes. The cats weren't very interested in her at all.

On January 28, 2009, Hildy died. She was almost six years old.

Rest in Peace, Hildegard.
