Default Cage Setup discussions

I thought we had a great thread over on the other forum, so I think we should have one here too.

Link to old thread:
https://hedgehogcentral.com/oldforum/ind ... topic=1383


Please post pictures (if you don't attach, make sure they are small) of your cages and setups. It'd be nice to keep the irrelevant chatting to a minimum as well.

I'll start with a few of the setups Inky has had...

Back when I had both wheels in:


Redone with loft:


With old wheel:

Okay, here it is. A couple things, the igloo is removed (she never uses it) she likes her hedgiehat, blanket, and my shirt better. Those three items are usually not in the center, they are usually againt the side opposite from the wheel, so they take up less space than it looks. We are going to make her have two conjoined cages soon, cuz here cage is a bit small. Oh, lastly, we are going to get rid of the duct tape and use a nice wooden frame soon to keep the metal screen down.
also, she has a different woter bottle (though you can't see it) and her purple crock water dish thing was dropped by my mom, so we have a different one now. It is actually what was her food dish in a larger version, and she has a smaller different kind food dish cuz she likes it better. (many changes, i kno)

Here's my setup. Note I took the pic right after I cleaned his cage, so its about 10 times cleaner than usual. Anyway, it's a bit small, but it seems to work just fine for Turbo. Pretty self explanatory- food and water dish, fleece scraps, hedgie bag, pvc pipe, wheel, tp tube, ping pong ball, and toy truck. He doesn't use a litterbox. There's a thermometer taped to the side and just a pretty little nametag thing on the back, for decorative purposes only.

This my set up. I have a four level C&C cage (the very bottom level is storage). There is one hedgehog per level. I also have sterelite bin cages. I have been meaning to make another four or five story C&C cage pretty soon, for the ladies.

Default Re: Cage Setup Examples

here is my set up. it is lacking, i know.... a wheel is coming soon (waiting for the paycheck to come in the mail)
i do have a question though. I read that hedgehogs don't like heights... how do they do climbing those tubes? i like the idea of a loft and will probably want to try that....


(note: he does have a blanket he sleeps under, i just took it out for the pic)

It isn't so much that they don't like heights it is just they are not used to heights and will walk right off a ledge. Also they tuck into a ball so their quills will help cushion the fall but that is only for very minor heights. A fall of even a foot or so can cause MAJOR injuries. So when adding a loft it is imperative that the "ramp" and loft is completely enclosed. Tubing is a perfect "ramp" but the loft still has to be without ledges.

Hi. I can't tell whether that is a towell or fleece, but if it is a towell I just wanted to let you know that you should change it as a hedgies foot/nail can get caught in the little loops. If it's fleece then just ignore what I said
