    Hey, guys! I got my hedgedog the 13th and each time it see me, even through the cage, it hide or curl as a ball and it's impossible to unroll it. I know it is stress because it's a new home and stuff, but... do you have some advice for that? I really am out of idea

    Hello all, I have take care of a hedgie before, but she was much older and I lived in a much warmer environment. Some background info on her: The hedgie I currently have is 3 months old.

    Hello All, I'm looking into getting a Hedgehog over the next month or so and was wondering if it would be possible (and more importantly safe for the hedgehog) to repurpose for use with my future hedgehog. The little second-floor area would be removed so they couldn't fall and I'd be adding...
  4. Introductions
    Hello, all! So I've recently become a new hedgie mommy within the past month. My little spikey boy is named Robin Quilliams. I know, I know, I really like puns, haha. And it differs from the typical "Sonic" name. But to keep on topic ... Robin has been at my condo with my boyfriend and I...

  7. Respiratory Infections
    Hey all, So I'm the mom of lil Chloe, who I'm guessing is a bit over 2 years old at this point. She's had a URI before, about a year to a year and a half ago, and had crust on her nose and we caught on pretty quickly that she wasn't doing well. Got her on antibiotics and she was back to her...
  8. Color Help
    So, I made a post about this, but I couldn't figure out how to edit posts, so we're trying again. XD Based on the pictures attached, what color do you think John is? I'm thinking a Chocolate Pinto, as he has white patches (one of them resembled a t-rex when I first got him. XD) Any input is...

    Hi, just a few questions before I get my hedgie in a couple months. :grin: 1) I know initial setup can be expensive, but where would you ballpark costs? I plan on making my own 2x3 C&C cage which I know should be around $50. 2) How long should I have my hedgehog before she travels? My mom...

  15. General Questions
    Hi- I was wondering if anyone else puts Timothy Hay in their hedgehog's cage? I was told to and have had in it my hedgie's cages for the past 5 years. They like to play in it, and will often carry it into their house and sleep in it. And one of my hedgies just ignores it, It has never caused...
  16. Skin
    So Gris went to the vet for the first time. I was not very happy with my experience overall. She didn't seem to be open to handling him without a giant towel. She was impatient with him being unwilling to open. She seemed a little too scared of his popping. She yanked on his quills with...
