    Hey there, I adopted Beau last Friday 1/15/21. He's about 10-11 months old and he's a rescue from a family who wasn't taking care of him. Their story for what happened to Beau is that they didn't know you were supposed to trim their nails, so his back nail grew into his paw and then they cut it...

    Hi everyone! My little man, Spike, hasn't run on his wheel in the last three nights. He's eating normally, he's drinking water, and his poop looks normal. I can tell he's not running because for one, his wheel is spotless. Two, he's normally up and running long before I fall asleep, and that...

    Hello! I recently adopted a hedgehog about a month ago, her name's Ryuk and I was told she's around six years old. In the month that I've owned her I've noticed that she doesn't use her wheel as much as I thought she would. She's very friendly and active and doesn't 'act old' so I'm not sure if...

    Hey guys, I have had my hedgehog a little over a month now and when i first got her wheel, she was using it every night because there was "evidence" in the morning.

    A little background. Macy is now 3 years old. I've had her since she was 1 and a half. This summer I made her a two-level cage out of a dresser compared to a regular cage. She seems to love this cage. It makes me so happy to see her have more space to roam. The bottom level has a wooden hut and...

    My hedgehog Otis is about 3 years old now and for about a month he hasn’t run on his wheel. He eats his food usually except for every once in a while but he’ll always finish it the next day, and besides the no running everything else seems fine. He drinks water and his feet are clean and not...

    Hello Everyone! It took Prudence a few weeks to start using her wheel originally due to being overweight. She wheeled almost every night for almost six months and has recently stopped again. For the last two weeks she has wheeled only once, and it was barely touched. I am aware that changes in...
  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I try to play with my hedgehog every night but once in a while it just doesn't happen and I'll miss a night. Every time I don't play with him, I've noticed that he decides he doesn't want to poop in his litter box that night and also that he doesn't want to wheel. Perhaps these are coincidences...

    Hello everyone! This is my first post, so, a bit of background info: I got my Hedgehog Spartacus a year ago. He's always been kind of grumpy, doing the sh-sh-sh sounds a lot when we take him out of the cage, but after a while he gets used to our hands and stops complaining. We take him out of...
