Default Cute new house for the babys

Ok my little girl Tonja does not like to sleep in her igloo she will poll her bedding out of it and sleep in the middle of the cage but she does like to sleep in one of my old hats. I don't think she likes the plastic, so I have been looking for a cloth house for her and I just fount it!!! It makes me giggle and its large size will accommodate her ever growing self

Is it surface washable only or just states handwash?

As if it just states handwash you can put it in one of those mesh garment bags meant for washing bra's and just jam it in with a cycle. I noticed that it said it was filled with stuffing, that might get gross if a hedgie isn't potty trained and pee's in thier sleep... but I'm sure it'd withstand repeated washings.

I am still fond of that octopus toy they have, they look fun! Although I think that'd take up a whole hedgies house!

Garrett also likes fabric versus plastic.

He will only play inside the CPVC 90 elbow if he has fleece strips to drag in there.

I ended up getting a sterilite container about the size of a shoe box from a local store. I tossed the lid, and turned the box upside down. I then drilled holes in the "roof" and cut out a door using a scissors.

I then used my very rudimentary sewing skills to make a fleece cover for the inside and the outside very much resembling a short sleeve. I slipped the sleeve over the box, and pushed the sleeve on the inside right to the "roof." I then sowed the inside to the outside using the holes, and that held the inside fleece from just dropping down like an old car headliner.

I then cut a flap that resembles a tent door for Garrett to go in and out of, and the excess "sleeve" that I had on the ends from making the cover too long I just flipped inside the small hedgehog house, and Garrett uses it to root around in now.

He seems happy to have a house that isn't plastic, and I had fun stabbing myself with needles. I would much rather make him things with power tools then a needle and thread.

The downside is, now in the night he has bed-head with small poofs of red fleece in his quills. Which makes him look very christmasy when he also tools around in his green fleece hedgehog bag.

I have the pink elephant version of the same for Wilson and it cracked me right up that the tag says "dry clean or hand wash only". Dry clean? A pet toy?? I ignored that this weekend and just ran it through on the gentle cycle and then laid it out to air dry. It looks good as new.
