Default Re: treats

I usually cut food up into small hedgie-bite-sized pieces so that they're easy for Lily to eat. I would at least cut them up to the size of her kibble, so it's a size she's familiar with. Watermelon is generally a big hit with hedgies, so I'd try again with that, at least. Lily likes cantaloupe too, and honeydew melon as well. Instead of hand-feeding her though (which can encourage biting if they come to associate your hand/fingers with food), give the treats to her in a small bowl or a plastic spoon.
