  1. General Questions
    I'm getting my new hedgie boy soon, and I've read in a few places that cat food is so hard that it can wear down or even break hedgie teeth as they get older. Would it help at all to grind up the cat food in a mortar first before I give it to him? I just want to make sure my new boy's teeth stay...
  2. Health
