How do I convince my parents to get a hedgehog?

0 votes
I am totally in love with hedgehogs. I really wanna get one, but my parents think not. I've researched for about 2months now, and I already found a breeder that lives near me. My mom is scared of all animals, especially rodents, (I know hedgehogs aren't rodents but they seem like one), but we already have 2 budgies, and she seems okay with them. My dad is not against animals or anything, nor an animal lover. He's fine with it, but I think he will be easy to convince. I know what to get, what hedgehogs need, and yeah. I hope someone answers quick, cuz the baby hedgies are sold in February 2016.

bye thx

This can be a difficult sell for your Mother. Perhaps let her do research with you so that she understands about hedgehogs. Take her for a trip to the breeder so that she can become acquainted with hedgehogs and get more information from him. I hope it works out for you, but if not, perhaps you can convince her about a more traditional pet.
