I am sorry to tell you that Horatio, Lord Nelson, Hedgehog is no longer with us.
The average lifespan of an African pygmy hedgehog is 4-5 years. He was a little over five and a half years old. He died peacefully today. We will miss him (he was a rather noisy sort when he wanted something.)

My finger was poised to click ‘like’, but that would not have shared my sorrow for your loss. It’s a tribute to you that he lived such a long life.
Thank you. I know about the “like” thing. I feel weird every time I use it under those circumstances
Have you ever wondered why there is only one choice of emotion?
So sorry to hear of your Horatio, he had a good, long life.
Hugs to you.
