  1. DIY How to make your own
    My husband and I are in the process of building our soon to be hedgie's home. We are aware that they can fall and get concussions and want to make it safe as possible. The levels of each floor are both nice and large, ventilated, and efficient as far as maintaining the right heat inside. So...
  2. DIY How to make your own
    Hi all! Like a lot of people I've seen on here, I want to have the best possible wheel for my hedgehog, but I'm not in the states, so getting a CSBW is going to be very expensive. I won't have my new little buddy for a couple of months yet, so I decided the next best option would be to make my...

  6. Wheels
    After an unsuccessful attempt with a bike odometer last week (which I bought in Walmart without knowing for sure if it had the auto on/off, which it didn't, it turns out), I purchased one online and successfully set it up last night! Since I had a bit of trouble setting it up since a lot of the...
  7. Introductions
    So I am getting my hedgehog in a few days and am setting up the cage for his arrival. I feel a bit confused on the lack of options for hiding places and was wondering what most people use? I found a sort of mini hut/crate sort of thing that looks super cozy, but idk because it is fuzzy on the...
  8. Cages
    Hey there all! Right now Queeqs is in a comfy 2-bin setup, but for a variety of my own health issues, I've been looking to keep him in something easier for me to access/clean. I found a Marchioro Luna Spa cage (here!) at a steal, and it's very spacious and looks great. The only thing I'm...
  9. Liners & Cage bedding

    I've been bitten by some sort of Cabin fever/sewing bug! We're getting "snowed in" here in Indiana, and I've got fabric, power, and internet! I've made a cube for Pudge and now I'm working in a tent and maybe new bag(s)!! I'll post pictures when they're done, if anybody has patterns/ideas, feel...

    Hello, My boyfriend and I have decided to go ahead and give all 4 girls a much deserved housing upgrade. I have been in the process of saving up for 2 double ferret nations, however my boyfriend wants to opt for a more modern look and build our own vivariums. We have all the dimensions and...
  13. Wheels
    Hi all! I mentioned in another thread that I have had had rats for years and I trying to re-purpose a bunch of the items that I had for them for my new hedgie. I have quite a few large Silent Spinners, but I know that even after covering the slits, they won't be ideal and probably harder to...
