Lessthanthreesisters or whatever is a really good place to learn from, & I really appreciated her videos. almost any other video I watched on hedgehog 'care' was completley wrong!
I checked out Lessthanthreesisters too and I thought her videos were very well informed. She has a nice, clean, organized setup and it looks like she takes pains to make sure her hedgie is healthy and spoiled. I had never heard of giving hedgehog's ferret treats though...does anyone else do this?

lol i just did a post asking everyone to flag her for animal cruelty, this is just wrong of her to think that what shes doing is actually right, and then when ppl tell her what she needs to change she refuses to do it!!

That video frustrates me to no end! She's so stubborn and naive! Her video should be deleted off youtube for wrong information! Hedgehogs deserve better than that.

Shae, I think you SHOULD make a hedgie care video. With as many subscribers as you're getting, it would be a great idea.

I decided to take a new tactic with this girl and try kindly informing her of her errors and giving her links to this site and the hedgehog welfare society. Maybe it will help. Maybe...

oAo We should all make our own hedgehog care videos. Perhaps we can push a 'majority rules' phenomenon and properly educate potential hedgehog owners by numbers alone. A "Well this person says it's this way but ten other people say it's that way so I'm going to assume these 10 people are right and the one person is wrong" thing.

I've been working on several Hedgehog Care Tutorials myself, though they are going a bit slowly as it takes time to get video examples of everything, mainly for the behavioral stuff.

It will be a while until I have several to post (I'll make a group of them to post together), but I'll be sure to post when I do, so you all can go give any suggestions/thumbs up/comment.

" Mesh wheels are an extremely bad idea, because a hedgehog's toes and sometimes, the entire foot, depending on the size of the holes, can become caught.
If you are going to get a hedgehog, please do not follow the advice in this video. Instead, go to https://www.hedgehogcentral.com and click on the 'Forums' button. There are many people there, myself included, who will be more than happy to assist you and give you all the information and guidance you could ever need."

If anyone can post that for me on that video and credit it to 'RangerLedah' (without the quotes on both my name and the above) that'd be great, it won't let me post that to finish my thought on the matter.
