Default Hedgehog Escaped Cage, HELP

Okay so we just brought him to my boyfriends place. This was the first night and he escaped his closed in cage. The finished basement has a lot of stuff in it. Plus Pickles is still getting to know us. Please help guys I’m panicking

This is where he escaped from. It is on top of an old air hockey table

Try to find where he escaped from in the cage and consider buying a new one. I personally prefer the storage bins.

I'm really not sure how he escaped, but I would just make sure that everything is securely in place and maybe even lock the cage "door" with something.

How high is the hockey table? I'm assuming it is pretty high. This is the main thing I worry about. If he fell/falls off of that table he can have internal injuries, even though he may not act like anything is wrong.

Oh, and is he a baby? He can probably squeeze through those bars if he tried hard enough.

There is stuff around the table that he would be able to climb onto and go down. And yea he is either 7 or 8 weeks

Keep in mind that just because he CAN climb down safely doesn't mean he WILL. If there is some way for him to fall, it's dangerous. Especially since their vision is so poor.
Just want to let you know so there are no major accidents in the future if he gets out again! >,<
