Default So Cold!

My house is currently 18 Celsius, that's about 64.5 Fahrenheit. Due to financial restrictions, I refuse to turn the heat up any higher. I'm wearing a fleece sweater and gloves. Winston's cage is a cozy 75.4 (about 24 Celsius). So I was wondering, how much do you think Winston would mind if I went and curled up in his cage with him for a bit? I'm sure his hedgie bag could fit both of us if he just moved over a bit...

Build a small tent around the cage big enough for you and a chair, hehe. I know this wind is brutal. its coming out of the Northwest so its all that colder arctic air. I guess the only good thing is its pushing the lake effect SE rather than down the Saint Lawrence Valley. I'm sitting here next to a crappy window that I can feel the cold air coming in, and the hedgehog cage on the other side of the room is toasty warm. Already sealed one window up, I'll nab the other tommorrow.

I can't imagine that sleeping next to a prickly hedgie would be the most comfortable thing in the world. And what about the hedgie mealie morning breath?

Hmmm... I hadn't thought of that. I'll bring him some hedgie breath-mints.

That's adorable! It's probably warm too! But you wouldn't be able to type.

That's all? Lol my brother keeps his house at a steady 55 F year round. He's a rather large guy. Needless to say he will never be baby sitting for Widget. What if the two of you camp out on the sofa together for a while? I'll put Widg in his blankets on my lap while I watch tv and get cozy warm. The two of us are out in no time.

Well, Calgary just came through a wicked deep freeze - we were the 2nd coldest place on earth last week!?
I would have to dress up like the abomindable snow-person to leave my apartment for school; meanwhile Pliny was tucked up in fleece and flannel under his toasty CHE. I was more then tempted to crawl in their with him! gah!

I can't decide if it's cute or terrifying... :P I'd certainly be warm though!

No kidding we were! It was SOOOO cold!

As for the cold house problem, what you really need to do is become a crazy hedgehog person and get yourself three hedgehogs like me. Then you keep them all in the same room and with 4 x 150W CHE's you end up with a super toasty hedgehog room you can sneak into to warm up during the winter.
