We took our hedgehog in to be put down today. He was five, and had some kind of growth blocking his airway. I just feel so sad right now, and I want to cheer my partner up but I can't, and I don't want to go near him because he won't be able to cheer me up either, and deserves to have privacy so he can cry or whatever he needs to do to mourn. Up til now, our hedgie was our baby, and it's so miserable to get attached to something and love it only to have it die so soon. I don't think we'll ever get another hedgehog, it would be too hard. I keep bursting into tears, and I'm pretty sure my hormones are mostly to blame. I hate today.

awwe, I'm so sorry to hear this.. I have & have had pets that were and are my babies too!!!

my fiancé has never lost a pet & I just got a long-haired chihuahua right before last Christmas (2012) as a gift to him.. b/c he's really never had a pet. he's very attached to her, as am I of course, also being like his first daughter lol -- & I can't imagine how to console him when the time comes for her to leave us.. she just turned 1 in October, so I pray we have many many years with her!

I've been through it, and it's an awful pain no one can comfort.. but God can and will help us through it all! praying for both of you.. ❤

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is like losing a family member. I had to put down my pit bull last year she was almost 6 & had cancer. U never really get over it just find comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering. ♥
