Default Hedgie not eating or drinking well?

The past two night ollie hasnt eaten as much as he usually does.

He usually eats a decent amount but the past two night i noticed he hasnt eaten as much. I bought him two new fleeces and put one of the new ones in his cage, could that be why?

He might just be having some off nights - Lily used to go back and forth with her eating amounts, more one night, less the next, etc. Two nights in a row would be good to keep an eye on him though, just in case. Did you wash the new fleece? He might be upset at the weird smell if you didn't, but I can't see it affecting his eating. Did he run on his wheel? Poop look normal? Do you have his cage heated and a light schedule for him? Sometimes decreased eating and/or activity is a sign that they're too cool, even if they're not actually attempting hibernation yet.
