Feed good food, make sure they're warm, give them enough light and use a safe wheel.

Have them on a clean liner, safe wheel, good food, light, heat, and love.

Welllllll, I wouldn`t say easy. Hedgies are exotic animals and have very specific needs. You really need to be prepared before getting one. They also like to make their owners worry. A lot.

And to add to Olympia's post: we gotta let them BE exotic animals. They're not here for our entertainment, they're here to make us slaves to their poopy boots, poopy wheel and general care and feeding. The sooner you accept your role in hedgie 'ownership' (pah!), the happier you will both be.
