Default Surprise Hoglets - Environment

We were blessed with some surprise hoglets this morning from our sweet Pinnelope. Our issue is we live in a small house and Pinnelope lives in our main room/living room. Her enclosure is right by our front door, our tv is the room, etc. we have kept the noise to a minimum and are staying away from her enclosure, but is that enough? Are we endangering her and the little ones by using the front door and the t.v. (On a low setting). We can’t move her enclosure and we can’t stop living in our main living space. Are we over thinking it? #firstTimeHogGparents

This is all noise that she's used to hearing so it shouldn't bother her. Changes are what stresses the moms. Try to keep your routine the same and the main thing is to not bother her and to only go in to the cage once a day to give her fresh food and water.

Do you know how she ended up pregnant?

Nikki, thank you so much! That eases our stress level a lot! Mom and babies are quite now and seem to be resting easy.

She ended up pregnant because we welcomed a second hedgehog - separate cage and everything. While we were traveling he climbed out of his enclosure and into hers! We had no idea he was a climber! She is not at all, so we weren't keeping as close of an eye on them as we should hae been. That will not happen again and all precautions have been taken since this incident.
