Hello everybody,

I have two hedgies and they are so different in how much food they eat. My male who is slightly overweight eats a full 2 tablespoons (measured out cause he's on a diet) of food a night as well as whatever else I give him (cottage cheese, chicken, fruits/veggies etc.) and mealies of course! (3/day) He also drinks a ton of water.

My female on the other hand eats less than 1 tablespoon per day and will never eat anything else I give her except for her mealies. She drinks barely any water at all. She is so small compared to my boy. He weighs around 400++ grams and she weighs around 300 grams. She is very active and runs every night and seems happy, but less than 1 tablespoon of food seems like nothing!

Any thoughts or insight would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Is SELECT baby foods or certain brand? Or do you mean she will only eat select flavours? Charlotte won't eat Gerber (I am in Canada) or another organic one that I tried. She also won't eat canned cat or dog food. I think she will eat a kibble that is higher in fat though. It just means she needs a diferent mixture than my boy. That's a good idea about the weighing of the food. How often do you weigh Dora? Daily?
