Re: First time hedgie owner =]

If you just browse around on this forum, you'll find lots of information on toys, handling, and other things. However, for the hedgie's diet, most people agree that a mix of two or more good cat foods are the best for their main food. There is a list of good cat foods here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15
It may take her awhile to get used to you, especially if she hasn't been handled much. But you never know, she may turn out to be a very sweet girl after a bit of cuddling. Just remember to not rush her and go slowly. It does take some of them a long time to get used to being handled.

First time hedgie owner =]

Hey everyone! Im Steffanie, and today I picked up my first hedgehog today. A family who could not care for her sold her to me, and I have to admit I dont know much about them. So that leads me to a few questions... What is considered to be the best diet on this site? Ive read a lot of conflicting information on diets and I'm real confused. I was also wondering how long it might take for her to get use to me, the family told me that she was about 7 months old and has not been handled a lot. Feel free to throw any other information in that you think I should know about the species. Thanks!!!
