so Pinchita is now stinking just a bit and its not very pleasent lol. no1 can really notice but me but i think it has come down to the time for ...her full.. body.. bath..dom dom doooom *scary music* ;) just kidding hah.
the problem is that i am afraid she will be to cold even if i fully dry her.
also the bathroom i use to ussually bathe her is freezing and the warmest place in my house is my room which is quite small.( i keep it at 75-76 )
its really cold 4 fl. these days. to the point where the morning dew is SOLID icyness.
they say it will pass just in a few days in my area.
so i thought maybe i could wait a few days.
and hen bathe her.
i know its kind of silly that i ask but i just dont want her to catch a cold.sooo...
so should i wait? should i bathe her in my room? and how cuz i ussually use the tub?
im just afraid that if i even got her near the bathroom she would get cold.
i honestly dont know why its that cold...
also i need to clip her toe nails a bit on the front and she only likes to let me when shes in the bath. she lets me the bak tho. dunno why hehe

If the bathroom is cold, you can bath her in your room using a plastic basin or even a small bin. When I bath in winter, I always put a heating pad under their bed for a few hours afterward to make sure they don't get a chill while they are drying. :)

What do you use to heat her cage? If you have a space heater, you could leave it running inside the bathroom for a few minutes before giving her a bath to warm it up for the time being. That's what I usually end up doing, to make sure it is warm enough. Keep windows/doors shut to prevent drafts.

When I give baths in the winter, I never do it if there is a storm happening or in the forecast for the night or if there will be a sudden drop in temperature. I don't want to risk the power going off and a hedgehog who just had a bath and may still be damp.
