  1. Bleeding, Female
    Hello everyone! I'm an owner of 1,5 years old female hedgie. After a long fight with bloody urine and no luck in beating it with any mediaction, the vet has sheduled a surgery date for her (tomorrow) to spay her. And my question is, did maybe anyone here, had actually a chance of taking care of...
  2. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I know all Hedgehog personalities differ, but I have had Lily for 6 months and every time I take her out it's like the same process and she never gets acclimated: she spends all her time huffing, absolutely despises my presence and tries endlessly to get away back toward her enclosure (I let her...

    Hi, I'm fairly new to this forum. My little girl is only 1 year and 4 months and just yesterday I found blood in her cage. I called the vet and got her in this morning to see a vet. After multiple tests she has been diagnosed with Uterine cancer. She couldn't see if it had spread or not. It...
  4. Rescue
    Hello everyone! I've recently taken in a female hedgehog who was given up to a grooming/boarding center that a friend of mine works at. I'm hoping to find her a new forever home with either an experienced hedgehog owner or someone who has at minimum done a lot of research and knows what to...

    Our little "Peanut" needs a new home. She is so sweet and curious. Very easy to handle. We only fed her Spike's Delite hedgehog food to keep her healthy. She is a fleece caged heggie and doesn't really like wood chips. She is very clean and keeps her cage clean too. We live in central MN...
  7. Breeding & Babies Help
    Hi guys, One of my females gave birth to two sweet white babies 2 weeks ago. I have a big cage and I separated the mom with the babies from the other female hedgehog I have (they grew up together and are calm around each other). Hopefully you will be able to help me with the following: 1...

  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So my hedgehog, Mia, had babies, and they're well off into their new homes at this point, however my friend whom I sold one of them to asked me to babysit "Zuri" while she was out of town, and I have her staying with her mama cause I don't have enough room for a 3rd hedgie cage in my room...

    Hello. This is Audrey Reyes, hedgie owner from the Philippines. The oldest hedgehog of mine, Bonnie, has recently became weaker. She used to be such a fast runner, but I have noticed that she became shaky whenever she walks. I am assuming that it isn't WHS because she's, I think, almost 3 years...
  11. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So maybe I am overreacting but I'm sad and worried. After 7+ years of wanting one I finally got Miss Shay over the weekend. She's 2 and her previous owners said she's never bit. The night I took her home she bit me and broke the skin, I was surprised but realized it was one the third step in...
  12. Adults
    My baby girl Poppy needs a new home. I bought her when she was already nine months old, and I've now had her for just over a year. I've come to realise that I don't have the time to give her the kind of attention that she deserves. She's perfectly healthy from what I can tell, never had mites...
  13. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hey everyone. I have a 10 month old Hedgie, shes super hissy all the time and she also loves to bite me constantly. Any suggestions/tips on how to make her less hissy or how to make her not want to bite me 24/7?
  14. General Questions
    So I recently got a new hedgehog from my cousin because she was not taking care of it properly so I took it off her hands and I already have a female hedgehog so I was wondering is it okay that I have them both? They're in separate cages and the cages are not by each other and they haven't met...

  16. Bleeding, Female
    My boyfriend just recently got a rescue hedgehog this summer. She is estimated to be about 2 years old, but her background is relatively unknown except that her owners before us neglected her (wrong food, unclean environment, never clipped her nails, rarely had physical contact/affection). We...

  18. General Questions
    I have just adopted a 10 month old female hedgehog who is completely blind, I have had an albino male hedgehog who is about 3 years old. Would she possibly mate with him? Or would she be too scared. Poor thing is so scared cause she doesn't know what to think. I don't want to breed her if it...
