I completely agree with all the above points. I also have a horse, and the amount of people that will buy there needs 'cute ponies' and not understand that the cute pony literally eats money is incredible. But I just anted to say that I did a tone of research before got my first hedgehog, and then a tone before i bring my second one home on sunday!Knowldge and research into care changed a lot int his time. So yeh i did a ton of research and still felt confused about what to feed! And i'd hate to feel misjudged for this - so many different opinions, and its HARD!!

Laxlab I did not know that hedgehogs can/ will eat their babies. I have found that the best place to find information is through experiences of other owners like on this website and hedgehog club.

Hoping people still use this

Hello! I am bringing my baby Hedgie home in 28 hours and I am so excited! I have a c&c cage with the anti pill fleece liner and the 12” plastic wheel with no holes and the space heater and ceramic heat lamp along with a digital thermometer to monitor the temperature of the cage. I’ve done tons of research so I feel pretty confident about bringing her home. However I’ve been looking everywhere for the answer to this one question I have and I cannot find it. I am wondering if the Rachel Ray Nutrish cat food is safe for my hedgehog? The breeder I am getting her from says he feeds them natural chicken and rice cat food. And this Rachel Ray Nutrish had no biproducts or or any of the weird stuff in it. Thank you in advance.

I must agree. I'm one of those who got so much contradictory information. We tried to make his home as comfortable as possible. (I mean my husband went hedgehog wild) He was as worried as when we brought home our kids. We found the reptiTemp 500s little nub annoying. We had to keep adjusting it to keep the temp stable but we seem to have it now.

So any help and advice you could give would be amazing. Not gonna lie reading the forums make me more confuse!

nikki You need a heat set up before you bring him home. Water dishes are safer and healthier than bottles. You also need bedding and dishes.
