Mrs Tiggie – the hedgehog

Breed : African Pygmy Hedgehog

Info : Surprisingly, once calmed and aware of their surroundings, hedgehogs do relax and can be petted – making them a great therapy animal. Mrs Tiggi was rescued as an obese hedgehog, who did not like to be handled. She is now very friendly and calm – she enjoys being tickled on her nose and stroked

Benefits : Not many people see hedgehogs up close, let alone handle or pet one and so a hedgehog is a special kind of therapy animal. Again fantastic for social interaction, learning and for the client who may prefer hedgehogs over other therapy animals
