Hedgies are good for people with allergies- my boyfriend is really allergic to most animals (dogs, cats, horses, rats) and he was fine with Harvey- it was so sweet, because N loves animals, but hasn't been able to have a pet because of his asthma! They don't usually prick you with their spines.

The major downside was that he died from a horrible genetic disease- Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome, and that he was also ill because his mum had been on a poor diet. It was very distressing to watch (won't go into the details, but the hedgehog basically becomes totally paralyzed).

Here in the UK, chinchillas are about 30, hedgehogs about 100 and sugar gliders about 200 for a pair (I've only met one person who breeds them).

It's hard finding pets to suit people with allergies, isn't it? I have a tarantula in my office and I'm allergic to her fur so I can't pick her up for spider cuddles!
