Default Re: Thinking about getting a Hedgie

Here is the girl I'm considering. Does she look okay? I don't know what to look for other than if she looks healthy.





Here is the cage I am getting. It's 30x18x14H and has 1 in x 1 in wire spacing. Is that ok?

I was going to get some sort of locking crock dishes for the cage so she wouldn't be able to tip it over. These are what I was looking at, but I need to email them and find out how deep they are.

This is the shampoo I already have for my rats. Is it okay for her?

And then I'm going to feed Blue Buffalo Freedom Indoor Cat food and the Innova food I mentioned earlier, mixed together. I was going to have some liners made that are two pieces of denim with quilt batting sewn in between. Would that be ok? I was worried fleece may end up stuck on her quills? One more question... If they like to burrow, how will she do that with the liners? Oh and I'm going to get one of the green sparkly bucket wheels
....And the CHE and porcelin lamp!....And I need 4 inch PVC for her to hide it... AND a PVC frame to hold down her liners!

If it were me I'd find another cage, some people may like them i'm sure but IMO there are a lot better cages available. If you look through this thread you will see some examples of a lot of cages

I would not use that shampoo either, most of us here use Aveeno. I like the powdered Aveeno soothing bath treatment but it seems the wash is more popular with other hog owners.

Walmart sells a store brand that is a little cheaper Equate Bath Treatments with Collidal Oatmeal.

The hedgie looks pretty good from the pics to me.

I second what Larry said (:

Also, a lot of people here use small ceramic dishes for food and water. You can get these anywhere from the dollar store to a pet store. The hedgie looks amazing and very well-tempered (:

I would be a little concerned about using denim. Denim doesn't dry very well and if your hedgie has an accident outside of their litter box (which it more than likely will) the denim will remain wet for a long time. The dampness can make the hedgie chilled and possibly lead to upper respiratory infections or hibernation. Fleece pulls fluid away from the surface- so in my opinion is a safer option. I've never had a problem with Brillo getting fleece in his quills- just make sure to wash fleece liners before actually using them in the cage.
