  1. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hector is so scared of everything! Every time I bring him out to play, he just cowers in fear and does not engage with any toys or objects. And every time he gets floor time, he just finds a corner and balls up until I put him back in his cage. I know its relatively normal for animals of prey...
  2. Wheels
    Hi everyone, I've just bought a wheel for my hedgie, one of the few of the right dimension I could find here in Italy. It has holes in the front panel, they are huge (11 x 11 cm) but still I would like to know if I have to find an alternative way or if I can use this wheel. The running zone...
  3. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I currently have my 4th hedgehog, and got 2 cats between my 3rd hedgehog and this one. I'm not sure why I never thought of it with my last 3 hedgies, but tonight i played with Pip with a fake bug on a string. She went bananas for it! Ran around like a little speed demon chasing this fake...
  4. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Good morning hedgies forums, I find myself with a bit of an issue and I'm hoping for some insight from those of you with more long term hedgehog knowledge than I have. My tiniest hedgie, Gabriel, has begun to exhibit some rather aggressive behavior lately. The past couple of weeks that I have...
  5. Heating
    Hi all, I've decided that when I do eventually get a hedgie, I'll have a Ferret Nation. But I have a couple of questions: For heating the cage, should I use a 150w or a 100w CHE? Or two 100w CHEs? My house is 68°F right now, but it gets warmer in the summer. Also, how would I keep the...
  6. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Five days ago I got a two year old hedgie. He is a rehome. He seems to be very fussy with everyone except me, so we are making some good progress. Once he smells me, he seems to be okay with being picked up and everything. I frequently will put him on my bed, or on the floor but he doesn't...
  7. Cages
    Hey! So my friend gave me this cage when I got my hedgie and i did research and everyone said it was the minimal amount of space healthy for a happy hog. so i built a loft in it, with a tunnel and his dig box upstairs which is where he usually sleeps (theres usually a wall, up there I just took...
  8. General Questions
    So I apologize in advance for how dumb this question probably is :oops: but I was reading some forums about a hedgies light schedules and it sounded to me like people where saying when they play with their hedgie at nighttime they make the room super dark. :shock: Are you supposed to play with...
  9. Toys
    I used to have a few toys in Oliver's cage, but I took a few out because he never touched them & they always ended up behind the wheel making it hard to run. I still have a little yellow ping pong ball in his cage but it only end's up getting pooped on... I take him out everyday 2 or more times...
  10. General Questions
    Mind as well ask a question for once instead of answering them– Okay this might sound like a stupid question - (but my first grade teacher so many years ago told me there is no such thing as stupid questions, so :p ) So when do you usually take your hedgie out and play or hold them? The thing...
  11. General Questions
    Hello Everyone! First off, I want to say how excited I am to have come across this forum and how grateful I am to be able to receive accurate information as opposed to whatever the people at the pet store tell me. That being said, I am planning on getting a baby hedgie in the next few weeks and...
