  1. Heating
    Hi all, this may sound like a silly question but I am wondering about the air vent in the room I keep Arowen in. A little explanation first: I live up north in the midwest and we are entering winter, so the temps are going to drop. Right now the outside temps are anywhere from 20 to 40 degrees...
  2. Heating
    Hello there! I just brought a new hedgie home yesterday and she's got everything she needs except an extra heat source. I had ordered a CHE + thermostat, but it's now not arriving until Saturday, and the weather turned frightfully cold today. I live in a basement that's normally well heated...
  3. Hibernation
    I have my two hedgies, Kiwi and Avocado. Every time my boyfriend takes care of them, the youngest one, Avocado: 6 months old, gets a really cold belly and this last time, my boyfriend said she was wobbly when she walks.

If your Hedgy is showing signs of going into Hibernation Mode, PLEASE TAKE IT SERIOUS, and please don't hesitate to go to the Vet Immediately. Sonic (original name...
  8. General Questions
    I am a naturally anxious person so I have been googling symptoms/signs of hedgehogs trying to hibernate and I have been receiving a lot of mixed answers. So, I figured that I would ask those who actually own hedgehogs! Does anyone have any personal experience or happen to know the signs of...
  9. Hibernation
    Have you guys found ceramic heaters successful at preventing hibernation? I just got one for my new hedgie but I'm unsure if it's really doing much. He's still a baby so he stays hidden a lot so it's a bit tough to tell the difference between sleepy and lethargic.
