Even if her belly is warm she could be one the verge of hibernation which can effect her appetite and activity. You should get a thermometer to keep in her cage to track the temperature in it. She may need it warmer than it is.

Re: less active, not eating as much

Judging from your other thread about heating her cage, the inactivity and lack of eating could be because she is a bit chilly. You said in the other thread that your room is generally around 74. What is generally mean? Does it drop below 74? If so, that is the low end of a hedgehog's tolerance for cold. She may become at risk of a hibernation attempt below 73 degrees. Lack of appetite and inactivity are both symptoms of an attempted hibernation if I remember correctly.

Is her belly cold?
