Default Getting My First Hedgie - Help Me Setup a Cage

Picking up my first hedgehog next week! First off, is something like this okay...
http://www.petco.com/product/10638/Supe ... esHabitats

I'm going to put a wheel in it, maybe something for her to hide in, but other then that, what do they like? Help me! And also, whats the best bedding for them? I hate cedar...

Thanks!

Yes that cage is ok. It's the cage I have for one of our hedgies, Pete.

Some like to dig so a tissue box with fleece strips might be a good idea. My Mustard has a PVC tube in her cage and she loves it.

A lot of people here use fleece or flannel liners for the cage. Easy to clean, you just trow it in the washer whenever it gets dirty, plus it's not dusty which decreases the risk of alergy for your hedgie.

Forgot to mention, I don't know what kind of wheel you're planning on getting, but the only commercially available wheels safe for hedgehogs are Confort wheels or Flying saucer. Besides that, LarryT here sells the Carolina Storm Wheel which is probably the best wheels for hedgehogs you can find. Very safe, easy to clean and silent. You can find a thread about his wheel on the For Sale forum.
