I strongly recommend a liner. My hedgehog got a respiratory infection from the dust in his bedding.
I was using CareFresh, my breeder was using Aspen. I hadn't had Herisson very long when I discovered he had an infection so I don't know if the CareFresh or the Aspen caused it.padawanslacker said:If you don't mind my asking, hedgie lover, what kind of bedding were you using when your hedgehog got an infection?
I ask because I'm torn between worry over the bedding safety issues several people have brought up on this site, and the fact that cloth liners would not be very practical for me. I live in an apartment building with one washer and one dryer. They guzzle quarters, are nearly always in use, and I don't think my neighbors would appreciate my filling up the washer with feces- and urine-contaminated fabric on a regular basis.
