Default Old Socks...

Hi there...We are a new hog family and new to the site here. We're really enjoying how much information and support you all offer!

Ok, so I have all these mix matched socks that I was going to throw away when I thought to myself....hummmm, to be sure there is something I can use these for, even if I just cut them open and make snuggle rags to put in her igloo?

Anyone have any neat ideas on re-using old socks for our babies?

Thanks and I can't wait to hear some ideas

Put oatmeal inside one, tie it shut, and swish it around in the bath water before you put hedgie in. Great for quilling !

Pearl's idea is the only safe thing I can think of. Socks wouldn't be a good toy, digging strip, or cuddle object for hedgies because of the threads. They can easily get threads wrapped around or stuck on a nail, leg, or tooth.

My bad. I hadn't thought of that... Seemed like a good idea at the time.

It's not for hedgehogs, but there is a project you can do called "Operation Happy Sock" for cats in shelters.
