Default What in the world was she doing?

My hedgie last night went to this little plastic trough thingy I have inher cage that she likes to sleep in and scooted all the litter out of it. Then she walked off and would pick up a piece of litter and carry it back to the trough. She did that two or three times and then went off. What was this about? Was she building a nest or something?

Two weeks after I got Snarf I learned a very interesting tidbit about hedgehogs: the things they do rarely make sense. You will likely never know the reason your hedgie does what she does...

That said, someone else (a little more helpful?) may have some insight...

Herc loves to build nests out of his fleece strips, so maybe she was doing that? Is there any chance she's pregnant?

Haha, that is too cute. Another hedgehog quirk, perhaps.

No, no. No pregnant hedgie. Or at least there better not be one. I guess she is just being her good old self like ya'll said and doing whatever makes her happy.

At the rate of surprise litters around here...well...let's just say I wouldn't turn down any extra cage supplies.

I'm only kidding - I'm sure she's just 'hoarding' - someone on HHC has a hedgie who hoards so much stuff in his house he has to sleep with his butt sticking out the entrance

But still... Watch carefully.

My very best nest builder was Teasel, a boy! Nesting isn't limited to pregnant girls. Many love to build elaborate nests.
