Then I heard a woman call "Oh look, there is a little hedgehog". I was very offended because I did not think that I was little. After all, I was already walking around all by myself. This woman called over to a man and he came and picked me up. I tried to curl up again, but they had already taken a photo of me. I don't want anyone laughing at my big feet.
For some reason they put me in a box and gave me some food. At first I was very suspicious, but the food smelled so delicious, I couldn't resist. Then they weighed me and I heard them say that I was too light to be left alone outside. I weight 250 grams. They were saying that I would have to reach 600 grams before I could do my winters nap. They made some phone calls, but none of the places that keep hedge hogs like me, had any room. Does that sound familiar.
So the two people decided to keep me. Oh joy! I didn't know that the dog that had found me, lives with them. Every time he comes in my room, I just hiss at him. I don't want him to invade my new home. They bought me a nice cage and I have a nice little house in there. The man build something out of wood because they said that I always tipped my water over. Me... no... never ever.
They took me to the Vet to make sure that I have no diseases and the yucky Lady there gave me two needles. I threw up after that and was so mad that I made a mess out of my cage. I pulled up all the newspapers. So the People called me Stinky. That is my name now. And because of that I make a mess every day now. Even after they clean up, which takes them one half hour every morning. I love running around in my mess.
Die haben mich dann auch noch zur Tierärztin gebracht um sicher zu gehen dass ich keine Krankheiten habe. Da war ich ziemlich sauer, denn die Ärztin hat mir 2 Spritzen gegeben und danach habe ich gebrochen. Aus Wut habe ich die Zeitungen in meinem Käfig zerrissen und eine Menge Dreck gemacht. Seitdem nennen mich die Leute Stinky. Das ist jetzt mein Name. So mache ich jetzt jeden Tag sehr viel Dreck, reiße die Zeitungen auseinander und freue mich. Dabei machen die 2 Leute jeden Morgen meinen Käfig sauber und brauchen dafür eine halbe Stunde. Das ist mir egal.
In the beginning the Lady took me out with her bare hands. But then I bit her, so now only the man takes me out with his gloves when they weigh me.
Am Anfang nahm mich die Frau einfach nur mit der Hand raus. Einmal habe ich sie gebissen. Seitdem nimmt mich der Mann zum Wiegen immer nur mit dem Handschuh raus.
The best part is, that I get to eat........
Today they weighed me again and I am 539 grams now. They said that soon I can sleep for the winter and they will feed me again when I wake up in the Spring. Well I have to think about that, I rather like it in this room.
Heute haben die Leute mich wieder gewogen und ich bin 539 gram. Die sagten dass ich wahrscheinlich bald meinen Winterschlaf abhalten kann und sie werden mich dann im Frühling wieder füttern wenn ich aufwache. Darüber muss ich erst mal nachdenken, I mag nämlich dieses gemütliche Zimmer.
