Default New Mommy Paranoia

So last night my new hedgehog attempted to hibernate. I brought him out of it and we were at the vet this morning and all seems alright. But I have to go out tonight for a few hours and I am all panicky. Worried about what might happen etc. Does anyone else get like this?

I just want to know he will be alright. :/

He's most likely getting too cold, so you need to up his heat. Hedgies should be kept around 72-75 degrees F. A ceramic heat emitter will help keep him warm. You can also up the heat in your home/apartment, if the CHE is not doing the trick, you could also lower the CHE if you have it too far from the hedgie.

Yes, everyone worries, especially when your hedgehog is new. Just do your best to make sure the thermostat is at a setting that you're comfortable with and I'm sure he'll be fine. You have to live your life too.
