Default First Time Hedgie Owner

Hi. I'm Kali, and my hedgie is Johanna Beatrice Hedgepig.

Johanna is six months old, and I've had her for a week now. I've been lurking here for advice and tips, and now have a solid wishlist of things to get. First thing is a heater just for her; I've been heating up the entire room for the past few days, but that's not good for me, considering I sleep in here too. I have light sorted out; turns out timers are very easy to find. I also want a scale, to keep track of her weight, and an odometer for her wheel. I know she uses it every night, but I'd like to know exactly how much.

Johanna is albino, and she really hasn't been enjoying the fireworks (we're in the UK; people are celebrating Diwali and Bonfire Night).:/ I've got the windows and doors shut, but you can still hear a faint whistle, so it must be even louder to her. She jumps every time. She's snoozing on my lap in her little bag now, and it seems to help. She's not frightened of me, which I feel great about, since she was very jumpy the first day. We're getting used to each other.

Hi everyone!

Welcome! That's great that she's settling in so nicely!

If you haven't already read it, this book is a wealth of information and highly recommended for new hedgie parents:

Thank you. I read it yesterday. It's been really helpful in figuring out what I still need to sort out, and the best way to go about it.
