Default Do I have all the things I need?

So I was working out pricing for hedgie supplies, just wanted to make sure I have everything before I take this as a pretty good estimated price. I did everything in an Excel sheet just to make things easier, but I think I did ok overall. Wanted to run it by you guys first though just to make sure a) that I have everything and b) that everything I picked out is safe.

The fleece I'm getting will be enough to make 2-3 cage liners plus snuggle sacks and a bonding pouch, by the way, so that's why you don't see those on there specifically

Thanks y'all!!!

Your “igloo” shouldn’t be a large if you only have one hedgehog. Get a small since they tend to like cozier spaces.

A large size igloo is perfect for an average sized hedgehog. Small ones are only good for babies.

Food & water bowls? I got a couple of cute ones at Petco. And just make sure his cage is big enough. I transferred Eggsy to a larger cage recently and he loves it.

Oh yes thank you! For those I was planning on hitting up my local thrift store, since they seem to have an overflow of small dishes and things, and with a good disinfecting they're good as new. That'll only be a couple more dollars.

And yes, the cage I'm planning is actually an American Girl doll house room I have sitting in my room being unused. It's 8 sq ft, so I was going to modify it some to make a cage out of it, instead of getting rid of it and just buying a cage.

Thanks!!!

I will be getting a baby, so would it be best for me to pick up both a small and a large igloo? I'm not sure if the small would be better initially since the baby might feel more secure in a smaller igloo? I have a small for my hamster and it's the perfect size for her but looks small for a hedgie...

In my opinion it's just a waste of money to buy a small igloo. I moved all my babies straight into a large igloo with no issues. You can also add some fleece blankets or strips to make it more comfy.

OK! That's what I thought looking at the small one, but I'm glad to have the confirmation from you. Thanks!

I'd just like to reaffirm the large igloo is fine. I have a bunch of fleece strips like nikki suggested in mine for Shelby to dig and nest in and she snuggles right up in them and sleeps like a log.

Thank you!!! Yes, I felt that the small one was too small, even for a baby. Thanks!
