    I have this cage: https://www.amazon.ca/Living-World-Deluxe-Habitat-X-Large/dp/B007BNE1YA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1475236143&sr=8-2&keywords=hedgehog+cage Due to the size of the cage, the rails for the water bottle make the water bottle sit up very high, and I read that the optimum height for...

    Greetings! I have a little 5 month old male named Crash who is just the sweetest! He's made being a first-time Hedgie owner a real adventure and totally worth the time and effort! The only bit that I seem to be having trouble with is teaching him how to use a water dish. He's quite...

    I'm sorry I didn't know what forum to put this in but I just wanted to warn some people, If you're planning on buying a water bottle for your hedgie, DO NOT BUY the Super Pet "Flat-Bac" plastic water bottle. I've had countless problems with it :sad: 1) The plastic is very cheap & thin. It...

    Hi everyone! So today marks day two of our little baby coming home and I know I'm probably paranoid but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. I'm worried because I've seen him eat, but I've never seen him drink and I'm concerned that because at the breeder he had a bottle, that he doesn't...

    I'm wondering if anyone has used a water bottle in a pop up kennel before? I just got one but short of hooking the water bottle to a rope I tie onto one of the poles, I don't know how to get the water bottle attached. Help!
