Some of us offer a dig box, which has fleece scraps in it for our hedgies digging pleasure. Some hedgehogs are diggers. You could also get a hedgie hat, being under it might help.

The hats can be bought here: http://quillsnthings.webs.com/accessoriesforsale.htm
Thank you... I unfortunately do not use a true litter pan as Loki refused to climb into it and would push it out of the way and do his business behind it, beside it, etc. So I just use a plastic lid lined with paper towel. However maybe I will try the dig box to deter him from digging the paper towel... It's worth a try! Thank you =)
