Default Re: happy hedgehog?

Hi there! the first thing that just about any hedgie mom will tell ya is get a wheel! (preferably a carolina storm wheel or carolina storm bucket wheel). My hedgehog is on there 24/7 and she LOVES it. blankets, or torn up pieces of fleece to burrow in are also a big hit. I made my girl a blanket and a snuggle bag just from the tie-together squares of fabric and she loves em. Crickets and Mealies also make for a happy hedgie. Quinn loves her mealies and her cat treats. Hm, you could also make cute lil hedgie toys out of just about anything. I know there's a topic on here discussing toys (hah sorry i know i'm kinding of jumping from one subject to another) A small bin that's low enough for your hedgie to crawl into filled with large, non hazardous aquarium rocks is a great way to let your hedgei hunt for his mealies and I also mix together fruit and veggie babyfood and freeze teaspoon size amounts for quinn to eat with her cat food each night. And in case you haven't heard already, hedgies need a food with around 15% fat and 30% protein. Majority of people will tell you that they use cat food, and I use a mix of four different types of all natural, high quality food. I'm sure all of this will make for a very happy hedgehog! Congrats on your new lil balll of quills!
Yours Truly,
McKenzie....and the pets
Riley the Cocker Spaniel, Lucy and Louie the DSH cats, Monty the Ball Python, Goose and Finch the Parakeets, plus Quinn & Naia the lil hedgelins.
RIP Perry the Parakeet. You will be forever missed my chatty little friend.
