Hello everyone
I am a fairly new hedgie owner of a 4 yr old male. I wondered what most people have experienced as a normal lifespan?

The average lifespan for a hedgehog is 4-6 years

Should I be offering him more soft foods since he is older then? He likes canned chicken, canned cat food and hard boiled eggs. In addition to the cat kibble and insects? Thanks 😊

As long as he can eat the kibble without problems then you should be fine. Just keep an eye on his weight.
