Instead of cutting and sanding plastic, you can use a soldering iron as a hot knif to melt your way through it, which will give it soft edges. Or you can cut it with a knife and then use a lighter to melt the edges enough not to be sharp.

Re: Hedgie Taming

I think this weekend I'm going to make a litter box for him any one that I found just wouldn't work in my setup so I'm going to buy a container cut it up sand the plastic so the edges are rounded
then I have to get a dryer vent tube like I saw in some of the great set up page because the tank I have him in has a second floor already glued in but I haven't found a ramp he will use to go up there so its just wasted space I put logos on that end he sleeps under the shelf that way its still like a hide I have great cage ideas but I just have to see what works for him first
I have a huge ferret nation cage in storage packed in its box I also have a 5foot long 2 foot wide 2 foot high glass tank sitting empty with a wire top I may glue in some shelves etc

I want to wait for summer to do some scouting/ research first I saw someone has a wood cabinet they converted into a cage that is something I really am leaning towards so who ever you are I may be hitting you up with questions hahaha my sketches include gluing down tiles for easy clean up cutting out back at top for screened air flow etc still playing with ideas in my head on how I'm going to introduce a heated spot thinking the added shelf will contain it hmmm so many ideas hes gonna have to be renamed Prince Tucker lol

Re: Hedgie Taming

I think it depends on what you mean by 'fun stuff'. Some "fun stuff" Pinball did recently:

- Pooped all over the place but not on me, yay!!
- 3 times in one day, dragged the "potty paper towel" over to his water bowl, making it soak up all the water
- stepped on top of his toy bunny and from there on he got on top of his house/igloo
- ran up and down my upper body a million times like he was wired on caffeine
- climbed onto my shoulders and tried to push my head away with his head (like he's trying to "dig under") and nose-kissed me! haha
- let me rub his belly!! <3

I guess fun is in the eye of the hedgie-holder

Re: Hedgie Taming

What do you mean by fun stuff? Reginald runs in his ball for hours on end, and we've recently got him into swimming, and if he's in the mood, he'll run around on the floor and climb on and around Maggie. He doesn't play fetch or anything, but he will follow her around while she walks around the house.

Re: Hedgie Taming

If you got a hedgehog so that it will do "fun stuff" you're probably going to be rather disappointed. Most hedgehogs don't do "fun stuff". My excitement with Prim for today was that I got her out and let her run around the living room while I chased around after her too make sure she didn't get into anything (everything is pretty much hedgie proof but I'm paranoid lol). Usually she just sleeps in my lap while I'm on the computer or watching TV.

Re: Hedgie Taming

when can I expect mine to do fun things besides huff puff and play hide and seek? I'm assuming most of it is do to getting his big boy quills but dang you guys all seem to have these playful creatures I got a huffy hairbrush that doesn't want to be do anything but sleep eat and poop and leave quills for me to stab myself with *sighs*
