Ajax’s sudden paralysis

Ajax the Wild Hedgehog is slowly getting better. To recap his story so far, a woman in San Marcos found this little guy in her backyard being played with by her dogs. She rescued the poor boy and through the grapevine found us and we have been working through his rehabilitation. He had been mauled by a cat, had a sizable mite infestation, and needed a bath really really bad! Recently, Ajax began to experience some neurological issues and has partial-paralysis of his rear legs. He has also started having seizures. Ajax needs a lot of help! You can donate to his vet bills and care here: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/3ana6 . Please share his story!

Today, he was able to sit up and eat without assistance.  He does seem to be regaining some control in his hind legs but his movements are still very shaky and he is still unable to put any weight on this hind limbs.  Moving also wears him out extremely quickly and within seconds has resorted to laying down and giving up.

Ajax learns to run on a wheel

There are no wild hedgehogs in Texas, but little Ajax was found roaming wild and free…that is, until a dog found him and thought him to be an interesting-but-prickly ball. Luckily, the dog’s owner intervened and, after rescuing poor Ajax, called us for help.  FireQuills to the rescue!

Ajax is recovering very well and we learned to run on a wheel maybe for the very first time.  Katniss, aka ‘little bug’ decided she wanted to be in the video, too!

Ajax the Wild Texas Hedgehog

Ajax RescueThere are no wild hedgehogs in Texas, but little Ajax was found roaming wild and free…that is, until a dog found him and thought him to be an interesting-but-prickly ball. Luckily, the dog’s owner intervened and, after rescuing poor Ajax, called us for help.  FireQuills to the rescue!

So far, poor Ajax was VERY dirty, has a sizable mite infestation, and a CAT’S CLAW buried in his side.  He’s on his way to recovery and (hopefully) to a ‘forever home’ safe from dogs and cats.

We believe he either escaped from a poorly constructed cage, or an irresponsible (the nicest word I can think of right now) owner let him go ‘free’ outside.  The twat.  You can help Ajax by donating to his vet bills and care here!
