Here is Prue's cage setup as of April 2016. Right now she has:

-CSBW with paper towel to wipe poopy feet
-Homemade litter pan
-2 PVC pipes
-Wooden log arch
-leopard print snuggle sack
-Igloo with cuddle cup and snuggle buddy inside
-Radish food dish
-Blue water dish
-Crinkle ball
-Ball w/ bell
-Green windup cat toy
-Marble
-toilet paper tube
-toy pig

I have found that a setup with less toys tends to lead to cage destruction during the night, so I am trying to keep it interesting for Prue.

That's my new favourite cage. How did you do the background?

I think it's pretty roomy. And I'm definitely going to consider switching to liners, because they're less of a pain to clean.

I have the same cage, but I can't tell in the photo if the CSW fits in it without the lid. I've just ordered one, but if I can't fit it that'll be bad, since my little girl is an escape artist.

Hi Mika,

Where did you get your plastic container/cages from? I'd prefer to get a plastic container cage rather than a wire one, but can't seem to find any good sized ones so far.

Cheers

Through the years of owning hedgehogs the biggest problem has been heat control. Living in Utah our weather fluctuates often. Especially this time of year. I've done many different cages, but this one takes the cake. I've had ferret nations/critter nations before but I didn't cover the sides. So here is suki's cage. The front is covered by plexi glass. Don't mind the dog nose smudges

You can use wood shavings. I did at first...and switched to wood pellets, and then finally gave in to fleece. The fleece is SOOOO much easier to clean and it doesnt have the hamster shaving smell you do with the shavings. Also, the shavings get all over the house and stuck in their quills. I guess I kept switching until I found something that didnt make my house smell and was easy for me to clean. I say...to each their own with bedding.
