So after I posted here, the girls poops got worse and they were put on medication twice a day for 3 weeks. we finished the medication and still nothing was different, slowly switched their food to one that was for sensitive tummies (no fish) and still nothing got better....then we realized what was going on. We moved the hedgies to a room of their own and kept the door shut while they were in there. Turns out the cat was poking at them when we weren't around and stressing them out and that was the cause of the loose stools! After a few days everything is back to normal finally!!! Now that I know how much stress has an affect on these little buggers I know what to look out for. Cats have no manners :/
