Dibo the hedgehog

Dibo was the first hedgehog I kept. She's a female african pygmy. I got her when she was two months old, since you can't keep a hedgehog below 2 months old for they still need their mother's care. I took care for her. Never got bored in doing it since I love her. Just can't get enough of her cuteness. One thing that's a bit hassle is that they poo several times per day and you have to clean their house every time it gets full with it. But that's fine since I love her so much. So I got her a partner, named him bristlefluff, an albino hedgehog, and they mated and dibo gave birth to 4 little cuties. Unfortunately, only 2 hoglets survived. Hedgehogs are very sensitive especially when they just gave birth. They must be kept in a quiet room, and we weren't able to prepare it for her. Our place is actually noisy since we live in the city. So because of the stress she got, she ate the 2 babies she just gave birth which is really depressing for me. However, the 2 babies that survived were healthy and very lively which is nice.It was about 2 years when I lost dibo, I lost her because of a disease I didn't even recognized. It was sad for me but still fine because dibo lived a happy life with me.
