Red face Kiki and I :)

Hello wonderful hedgehog family!


I just wanted to tell ya'll about Kiki and myself. I am from Idaho, and Kiki is a rescue. I got her really recently, about two weeks ago. She has mites (which are being treated) and is not a huge fan of human contact. We've been working on bonding together every night, and she's gotten to the point where she will snuggle me and sleep. She HATES being picked up still, she might never grow out of that. She also hates treats. Apples, mealworms, carrots, doesn't matter, she wont eat it. We're working on that.


She surprisingly didn't mind the one bath I have given her.


Kiki loves to burrow. Her favorite thing to do is pull up her cage liner and burrow her way to the middle of her cage and chill there all day. I'm going out this weekend and buying her a bigger wheel, she doesn't like or use the smaller one she has so we're going to try something new.


So if any of any of ya'll have some tips for caring for a rescue I would love to hear them!

welcome to the forum!

Have you heard of the Carolina Storm Bucket wheel?

I have! My only hesitation is that they're kind of expensive and I'm nervous she wouldn't use it after I got one. Are they worth it?

Definitely worth it, though you could also look into making it yourself and see if it works out any cheaper for you.

If you go here
https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/foru...d.php?t=191540
You can find the instructions and that mecki put there, and the bowl they used to make it so you have an idea of a great bowl to use.

The only thing different to the instructions here that I would suggest is using screws to screw into the skate wheel rather than cable tie it - the screws make it more sturdy, than the cable ties.
