Well, cheap option is a steralite storage bin, you cut/melt air holes into the side, and you can probably rig the top so its open but screened in. The storage bins work out better than an actual tank due to the air holes you put into the sides, and due to the slanted angle of the walls it allows air to flow through.

A cage with a sold floor also works fine, such as a ferret or rabbit cage, main thing is bar spacing, no more than an inch, these guys can squeeze through tight spaces if determined.

The dogs I wouldn't worry about, as anything can be put above floor level, as for the cat, I wouldn't worry too much about him or her, cats after feeling the quills tend to lose interest, and I say this as having two hedgehogs and eight cats, and none of the cats pay any attention to either hog.

Cage wise I'm sure people can recommend different brands, I use a Ferret Nation which unfortunately is costly, but its a great product.

Re: Video of Her attempting to walk.

So even without a lid, it's bad?

If she ends up recovering from this, I plan on switching the tank style to ones similar on here anyways.

Connor, she has been to the vet and the vet is misdiagnosing her of having WHS. Jen is following advice we are giving her for syringing her food and water. Please read back on other threads about this issue.

She is sick, weak, dehydrated and omg she looks anorexic, you can see all the loose skin on her.

She looks exactly like the hedgehog I was giving critical care to last week for the weight part.

Please handle her more gently and please do not try to make her walk again until she is ready too.

Is she in an aquarium? If she is that is a bad thing, they have barely any air circulation, and she needs all the air she can get.
Someone suggested the video to see what it looks like, havent taken her out otherwise to feed her.

The tank has no lid. The side are plexy glass, but there is no top.
