Default Its Official!

I have named my hedgie Ovi... It is short for Ovechkin (Alex Ovechkin he plays for Washington Capitals)
Here is pictures of him!

Also, I was looking at some cages on here... For anyone who has the cubes as the cage (I use them for my clothes) I think that is a brilliant idea, how do I go about do that? Like how do I make sure there is something on the bottom and what did you use? And any other tips!

Thanks so much

So cute, especially when they're still babies.

People use Coroplast to create a bottom on the C&C Cages, its more or less plastic cardboard, used mainly for signs. It can be found at sign stores and some home improvement stores such as Home Depot. You also use it to create 'walls' in the cubes, as the openings in the cubes (the little squares) can be big enough for a hedgehog, especially a baby, to squeeze in between and escape, and also helps prevent them from climbing the sides and also escaping or falling and hurting themselves. If you check out the housing section, you'll see plenty of examples.

Edit - Watch his around that towel she looks like she's in, those loose threads I see on top can be a hazard, namely if they fall off. Long loose threads can end up wrapped around legs and get tight enough to cut off circulation. More or less just don't leave his with the towel unsupervised.

Perfect! And thanks for the heads up on the towel!
I need to go get that coroplast then, I will definitely be putting a little wall around as well, but how would the water bottle fit? Would I just make a little hole for the water bottle?? How big do people normally make the, one, two, three, four cubes big?? I am very excited to begin this project but I just want to make sure I think of everything to make sure my hedgie is safe and that nothing can harm him!
