Your habitat and heat set must be set up and ready (unless purchasing from me) no baby leaves us without having a safe habitat and heat source ready for them.
You will be asked to choose a time slot that fits both our schedules
The appointments are in half hour blocks to allow for any questions you may have. We want you to leave confident in your knowledge and understanding of hedgehog behavior in order to make your experience with your new hoglet a great one!
