Default Re: Cage Cleaning and enrichment

Cleaning depends on the neatness of the hedgie. Squiggy is a bit of a neat freak now, and his cage doesn't need more than a good fleece shake off once a week. I toss it in the wash every 2 weeks just for cleanliness. Other hedgies need full cleanings sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. Before I switched Squiggy to his fully set C&C he was a slob and needed his cage cleaned completely twice a week. Scrubbing the wheel every day though is definitely necessary. Its up to you whether or not you think it needs a good cleaning every week.
