Are you thinking of using it as a temporary or "extra" heating to give extra warmth in the addition of the heat emitter or space heater that should already be there to keep the AIR at around 75F?

Does it have a cord? Are you planning on placing it inside the cage 24/7?

And yes, your hedgie can get burned. You also have to plan for burrowing, so wrapping in fleece most likely won't work. And you have to plan on cord chewing if there's a cord.

Honestly,IMO, an electric warming pad should be used in emergencies, or during cuddling time, after a bath time, when you are RIGHT THERE with them closely monitoring the pad. Otherwise, I don't think they are very safe to be kept in the cage. Plus, it's not a very viable heat source, as it doesn't heat the entire cage.
