Hello I found this hedgehog late at night walking through my backyard so I went ahead and kept it and put it in a box and trying to take care of it and what not.

What are all the necessary things I need so this hedgehog will be happy it looks pretty dirty he probably has fleas or mites I like to take care of all the issues thank you very much. I gave it some chicken feed and cat food and it's been hungry and thirsty.
