Default Does my hedgie have URI?

So I've had Nutmeg for about 8 months and lately when she sniffs it sounds a bit weird. She sneezes once and a while and her nose doesn't seem extra runny and is not cloudy. I'm just wondering if she could have a cold or maybe even the start of URI?
P.S. I use a blanket as her bedding.

Any info would help!!

You already asked about this on your last thread and my answer is still the same - if you're concerned she might have a URI, you need to take her in to the vet. Especially with the hibernation attempts she was having, it's very possible she has one. We can't say anything for sure - we can't see her and we can't diagnose her since we're not vets. Hedgehogs don't really get colds like humans - if they have a URI, they need antibiotics to help them recover or it can progress to pneumonia.

So the weird sniffling has almost completely stopped and she's acting completely normal, she eats and drinks excersizes and gos to the bathroom. My room was a bit cold for a little bit so did that make her sniffle weirdly??

Also I just made my little girl a snuggle sack and she's cuddling in it Right now on my lap
