    Hi, I'm a new hedgehog owner of 3 months Papito, i bought him from breeder when he was 1 month. We're still trying to bond, he still try to run away or hide when I pick him up but he's okay with touch or strokes, and eating from my hand. So any bonding suggestions will be very much helpful šŸ˜...

    Hello! For the last few nights Amy has been leaving like 1/4 of her food but eating it during the day (it's the same amount as before). Is it normal or should I be concerned? Thank you in advancešŸ˜Š
  3. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My male hedgehog (Alfred) likes to be under his blanket. All. The. Time. He will wake up and run on his wheel from about 1-5 a.m. and then he of course sleeps all day. But he moves his blanket so he can eat and drink from under his blanket. It doesn't matter how we arrange his cage, he'll move...

    My hedgehog is around 4 years old, and the doctor is almost sure he has lung cancer. Because of finances, the doctor's near-certainty that he has cancer, and the hedgie's perpetually cranky temperament, we have not done extensive or heavy testing for fear that it would make things even worse...

    Hi, everyone! My name is Sadie, and my hedgie's name is Ewan. Ewan moved in with me 5/26/18 (Wednesday night). Ewan has a 5x2 C&C grid cage with a coroplast bottom and fleece lining. I bought a heat lamp and a temperature regulator when I started preparing to get my hedgie a month or two ago...

    I bought Milkee home about two months ago, she was born in May and is about 4 months old now. The last two months we're okay, but recently I noticed that she is eating a lot less than before. She still poops but her poops are smaller than before, and she also stopped pooping on her running...
  7. Hibernation
    My three month old girl Sylvia had a hibernation attempt last night. We're not sure what happened, we think it's a combination of her not liking to sleep in her igloo on her heating pad and (maybe) her water spilling all over her and getting her wet. In any case, we warmed her up immediately...

    Hey there, I'm new here and a new hedgie mom. I got little one on Saturday (no name yet!) and she did not eat Saturday night or Sunday night. She did eat about 5 kibble last night (Monday). She did drink some last night and Sunday night. I plan to begin syringe feeding her baby food today...

    This is going to be a bit long, but I will try to get to the point quickly. I have a 2 year old male hedgehog that was recued 6 months ago. He is pretty feisty as not was worked with very much before. He eats what they told me to feed him: dry cat food, wet cat food, water, and on my own I...

    Hey everybody! I just got my hedge over the weekend. He is 2 years old, was a friend's roommate's pet, and I've known him all his life but he's just recently become mine. His last owner was a little... inattentive, and I took him more out of a desire to help him than a desire to have a...

    I was just wondering what your hedgehogs favourite fruit and vegetables are. I heard they love bananas so I'm getting Pixie some today. I gave her a few peas but she didn't seem very interested in them. What fruit and vegetables do yours love to eat? I'm curious :)

    Hi everyone! So before I explain what has been going on, I think it might help if I explain his used-to-be normal routine. Snuggles is now 16 weeks old. When we first got him, he came with a food mix called "Wild Hog" (not sure what is in it, was just told that he and the rest of the hedgehogs...

    I got a female hedgehog 3 weeks ago. I've put her in a good size cage with paper bedding, water in a shallow bowl, and food in one as well. She has a litter pan that she uses and a hutch that she sleeps in. I was having to fill the food and water bowls up almost everyday as she has been eating...

    I adopted my little Farlow about a year and a half ago (just a wee babe when I got him!), and he has been nothing but smiles and activity up to this point. About two weeks ago, I noticed that his normally empty food bowl still had remnants of food left. He is now eating about half of the food he...

    When I went to feed Morrison last night I noticed he had not ad any water and barely ate any food. I added another water bowl to the other side of his cage just hoping it would increase the chance of him drinking. He also always finishes his food so I was shocked to see most of it remaining. I...

I take him out and lay on my bed and he sniffs around and walks all over my bed. But my problem is that when I try to get him out of his cage I always have to wake him up so I...
