Oh see I think letting her burrow all the time helps, as well as searching around that area for insects. She still loves climbing😂 Shes pretty good at climbing all over us and up the sofa😂

Sounds like I have to switch the bedding again. It's such a shame because I love fleece 😔 I googled cardboard bedding and unfortunately it's unavailable here in Romania. I only found the ones made out of recycled paper. The breeder I got her from used wood shavings (coniferous I think) but I read all about those and the risks they possess and I'm kind of afraid to buy them.

Its a pian the shredded cardboard I use is desinged for horses, its called future animal bedding (not sure if you'll be able to find it or not because I cant check but you could try)
Theres quite a few good paper ones but they can end up pretty expensive.
I wouldnt use the wood shavings, theres defintly too many risks that I wouldnt really want to take, also its gets everywhere a lot worse than paper beddings or the cardboard bedding.

Hello, all of these are good suggestions for your little one. As far as the eating of paper bedding this is also normal. I have been a hedge daddy to Pepper, for 5 years. They don't see very well as you know they rely on smell and taste. As far as fleece bedding I think the problem that you're having is that you can't really get the smell out for a hedgehog so they're going to go where they went before. It's like a dog peeing on trees Etc I hope this helps.

Hello, all of these are good suggestions for your little one. As far as the eating of paper bedding this is also normal. I use Carefresh natural paper bedding as I have the entire time I have had her. I have been a hedgie daddy to Pepper, for 5 years. They don't see very well as you may know they rely on smell and taste. As far as fleece bedding I think the problem that you're having is that you can't really get the smell out the fleece good enough for a hedgehog so they're going to go where they went before. It's like a dog peeing on trees. They also will chew on the bedding and anoint themselves because they think it stinks and they think that it will protect them from danger. When I let her out sometimes she will also chew on my beard for the same reason. I hope this helps
