    I'm considering a hedgehog, but my parents said I'm not allowed to keep it in my room (my mum is a clean freak). My dad has an office attached to our garage, would that be a suitable place to keep the cage? Unlike the actual garage, the office has windows and is very clean (I wouldn't say our...

    Hi Friends, Hope everyone's been doing well! My Hedgie, Spike, is now 6 months old and thriving. He is my everything <3 ... I love him so much. The past 6 months have been amazing. He's moody but sweet. I've never seen a more active Hedgie in all the 3,435,383 million videos of Hedghogs I've...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I was wondering if there were any cages that you guys would recommend for hedgehogs. I have a two-year old hedgie and I've been looking into getting him a larger joint to hang out in. Any recommendations? :grin:

    Looking to build a hedgehog cage out of an old piece of wood furniture. I want to keep a classic wood look so would rather not put linoleum on the bottom of the cage. I am concerned about the possibility of urine soaking into the wood and want to make sure that I seal the wood effectively but...

    Hello! My fiancé and I are getting two little boys very soon and we want to set up before they come home! I have been doing a ridiculous amount of research into products (and of course hedgie care <3) and I am torn on their cages. The breeder that we are getting them from offers a setup...

    Adopted hedgehog ?'s: Confirming proper CHE set-up & are blankets ever needed w/ CHE? Our CHE set-up arrived today (per the specifications from this site) and everything seems to be working well. We adopted Norman and the previous owners were using a human heating pad and electric blanket...

    Hi, we are looking for advice on keeping our newest family member warm as new owners of Norman, an almost one year old male hedgehog. I had planned on using the same methods as the previous owners did on keeping him warm, most resources tell you on acceptable temp range but not the how to...

    Okay, so my hedgehog, Poppy, has escaped a couple times from her tub cage. The first time she climbed on top of her igloo and out really easily. The second time she used the (protected) ends of the screws for the water bottle to climb out. I'm wondering if getting a C & C sort of cage would be...

    Hi there! I've been looking at different cages online and I came across this one that someone handmade for a guinea pig. I'm currently waiting on specific dimensions but it seems large. Assuming that it has enough floor space (and I cover the ramp/ wall in the loft, of course), would this be...

    Hey everyone! I hope this post can be helpful to at least a few of you, mostly geared towards people who are in the process of gathering materials or who are wanting to change things up without spending a ton of money! I'm sure we all have have GoodWills, Salvation Army or local Thrift Shops...

    Hello, I am looking to make my hedgehog a bigger cage. I would like to use the C&C Grids and chloroplast. However i can't find a cheap place to buy the grids. I noticed they have websites that sell the full amount of supplies but they are too expensive. Can anyone help me?

    I'm currently in the process of gathering supplies for my c&c cage and was wondering how much coroplast I should get if I'm building a 2x4 cage? I want the walls to be at least 8 inches so my Hedgie doesn't try to climb out. Do you have any suggestions or exact measurements? Also was wondering...

    What do I use to wash my hedgies things such as his water bottle and dish? Is it ok to use regular dish soap like dawn or? My Hedgie also lives in a 50 gallon tank so I want to know if it's ok to clean the glass with glass cleaner or will that cause my Hedgie issues?

    So hey guys. I currently have 3 hogs (soon to have 4!) and I have put ALL their cages, cage liners, the many, many toys, food/treats, even bath time stuff inside my walk in closet that is a long rectangle about 38" wide and I will have to get the length in the morning. Their current housing is...

    I'm getting a hedgehog in the middle of June, and I want to prepare EVERYTHING before she gets home. I did a lot of research on the products to use and I am stumped on one thing. What type of cage do I use? I know that there are bins, C&C cages, and then regular cages made for hedgehogs. I...

    How do I clean a hedgehog cage? It is going to be a large clear tub. What spray is appropriate for me to use? :confused:

    So a friend of mine is a turtle lover, and last night he was talking about how he was building a tortoise table for his tortoise. After goggle searching it, I think this could be really cool and stable for a hedgehog cage. It seems solid and sturdy and you could make it so the plexiglass on the...

    Hi All! This will be my first post on this site though I've been browsing the forums here for close to 6 months. I bring my baby hedgie home from the breeder this weekend and in my readings have heard not to put certain things in a babys cage until they are better adapted to their new...

    Hello everyone! So, lately I've been looking into getting a hedgehog; researching, planning, saving money, etc. If I do get one, I want it to have a really big cage. Unfortunately, my bedroom is pretty short on space, and I couldn't keep the hedgehog anywhere else in the house. I only have room...
  20. Heating
    Hello - I'm a new hedgie owner and want to know the best way to heat a cage made from a sterilite bin? It's modified so that the top of the cage (the plastic top) has been cut and screening for a screen door has been added for ventilation... but now I'm not sure as to the best way to heat it...
