  1. Igloos, Bags & Sleeping options
    I just found a fur purse at a thrift store and got it for my 4 month old hedgie. I have had her for just over a month; she is active, curious, and passionate about her likes and dislikes. She bonded with the fur purse quickly, showing hardly any fear after her first two explorations of it. She...
  2. Igloos, Bags & Sleeping options
    The wooden house our Wednesday sleeps in is getting too small for her... or rather she's getting too big for it. I want to provide the ultimate super comfortable sleeping place. She always burrows under all the fleece in her house and sleeps on the bare floor. It seems really uncomfortable to...

    Hi, My hedgie is about 7 weeks old. He never curls in a ball when I pick him up but will do the occasional hissing if startled. Once he has settled down on my lap, usually in some fleece, he will start huffing sometimes before he naps. It sounds like numerous hard exhales where his whole body...

    Hi guys! So.. I just recently adopted/rescued my little guy (here's the story for anyone who's interested: http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/18-fun-stuff/148954-taco-s-story.html ). I'm housing Taco in sterilite bin set up (4 bins connected by PVC's) but I have given him all night and all...
  5. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi, :) I know hedgies are nocturnal, but what time do they typically wake up? I do not have my hedgehog yet, I'll be picking him up next week so I'm trying to adjust my schedule in order to get the most bonding time with him as possible. Some say as soon as the sun goes down, which would be...
  6. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    After going through a very tragic event of the hedgehog I chose from the breeder dying at 4 weeks old, I was able to pick out a new little girl who will actually be ready 2 weeks earlier than the previous! I am now rushing to get last minute supplies and making sure everything will be perfect. I...
  7. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hey I was just wondering if anyone else had ever had a hedgehog make sounds while sleeping. My last hedgehog never did, but Prudence is quite a vocal sleeper. She makes a sound that almost sounds like cooing or purring. It's quite loud and I often hear it from a room away. Does this mean she's...

    Adopted hedgehog ?'s: Confirming proper CHE set-up & are blankets ever needed w/ CHE? Our CHE set-up arrived today (per the specifications from this site) and everything seems to be working well. We adopted Norman and the previous owners were using a human heating pad and electric blanket...
  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I have a 6 month old hedgehog who has been pretty consistent ever since I got her. Normally as soon as I turn my light off between 10-12 she comes running out of her sleeping bag and onto her wheel. She is also usually awake most of the night and even stays awake most mornings until I turn on...
  10. Hibernation
    Dobby, my hedgehog, ever since I got him.. his poop was green but not jelly like. Yet I became concerned due to the forums here saying that green means his stressed/going through changes until yesterday his poop became brown... But a while ago it was green again... And he keeps on sleeping and...

    Hi, I've read that hedgies make diffrent kind of noises during their sleep, but I'm beginning to get worried here. Robb, every now and then but only during his sleep, makes crying/squealing noises, not too loud but also not so quiet, like if something either was hurting him or he was dreaming...

    Hello everyone! I was wondering how many of hours of daylight sleep a hedgie needs? I have a light on 8am-8pm..... but I was wondering how many hours of sleep she needs to be healthy! I play with her at 7:30 (20 min cuddling/playtime) am and again at 9:30pm (30 min playtime) .... If she...
  13. General Questions
    I've searched around for an answer but I haven't had much luck, which makes me wonder if I'm crazy for asking this? I know hedgies need at least 12-14 hours of daylight/light a day, which I do with a "Happy Light" lamp on a set timer. My question is, if our hedgies are sleeping, or hiding...

    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...

    Sleeping outside hide? Help, Please!! Goooood morning! For the last two mornings, I have woken up to my lovely hedgehog, Bee, sleeping outside her hide. She has been sleeping next to it lately. At first, I was really concerned that she had tried to hibernate, but she was warm to the touch...
  17. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi. I know this sounds dumb, but I'm wondering if hedgehogs have nightmares? When Lucy was a baby she would squeal loudly when she was sleeping- I thought she was hurt but when I ran to her cage she was sleeping. She did that for awhile and eventually she stopped (or did it when I wasn't...
  18. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    At night when my boyfriend and I take our hedgie out, she always is really curious and explores when he has her. When she's on me she seems less curious and very calm. She usually ends up falling asleep. Does sleeping on me mean she trusts me more or does she trust my boyfriend more if she's...
