Exposed Seams Dangerous?

I want to machine sew some pouches and other accessories, but I need to know if hedgehog toes get caught in exposed seams. If I make the seams hidden, will they dig and pull the threads loose?

For my sugar gliders I only use no-sew pouches in their cage because they get into everything and I'm afraid they'll pull the threads loose and get tangled. Has this ever happened to anyone's hedgehog?

The pouch I got from the breeder has exposed seams. She told me it's fine and so far I haven't had a problem. I've seen some other people put hand sewn items in their cages so I was just curious if tight or hidden stitches mattered.

I found this stuff called stitch witchery on a thread a while back and used it the other day it's super easy to use,no sewing required.

LarryT: Stitch witchery sounds very interesting. Did it work on fleece? The fabric care instructions say not to iron. I thought the fleece would melt from the high temperature.
Place Stitch Witchery between fabric layers. Cover with a damp press cloth. Set steam iron on wool and press for 10 seconds on each side. Do not slide iron.Allow to cool. Check if bond is secure. Press again if necessary.Washable and dry cleanable.

I have only washed and dried once so I don't know how long the bond will last but it does come in three strenghs. I also doubled it up for added bonding power. I can't sew a stitch so it works for me.
