This is a recent conversation with Michael that i would like to share:
Michael: "We should get a cute furry little animal"
Alexis: "But you hate animals...they poop and they stink"
Michael: "I know but we should get something cool"
Alexis: "Like a bunny or a hamster?"
Alexis: "Dog? Cat?
Michael: "No..like a hedgehog."
This is what I have to deal with people! First and foremost, hedgehogs are illegal in like 3 states and Arizona is one of them. They have crazy restriction rules that make it difficult for even a zoo to get one. Wierd right? So here are our options: #1 Find the closest hedgehog breeder (top of Colorado) and smuggle it in to Arizona. Cost: $250-350 for animal + the cost of gal. Option #2: Have hedgehog shipped to New Mexico and pick it up. Cost: $250-350 for hedgehog + shipping ($500-600) + gas.
Do you get where I am going with this people? Impossible! This is an impossible demand which hubby has placed before me. We cant have a hedgehog okay? You think he would be satisfied with a cute little chinchilla but no..
In his defense they are really cute...
