I've decided to name my new hedgie Snuffy after Mr. Snuffleupagaus from Sesame Street :)

I've gotta drive about an hour and a halfish after work to get him so I'm not anticipating being home until after 8pm. I already have the cage set up with everything, we're just missing our hedgie.

So tonight- should I just let him explore his new house or can I try to hold him or give him snacks? I know that hedgies can go on hunger strikes with a change in environment so I want to do all I can to keep him calm and as stree-free as possible.

Thanks!

Thanks, Nancy!

How much do you guys put in the food dish every day? A few tablespoons?

And the breeder that I'm getting him from makes her own food "blend". I'm going to get a couple of pounds to start with but the gradually switch him over to either Blue Buffalo or the Chicken soup brand (if I can find it :? )

I figure a couple of pounds will last a while, but how soon should I start incorporating a little bit of the new food? I'm guessing a couple of weeks?

He is such a PIG!!!!!!! I really don't think he's had any problems adjusting, at all. He's a spaz. When I woke up the morning after getting him I thought a tornado went through his cage....food all over the place, water bowl knocked over, the fleece half off the bottom of the cage, and he was snuggled deep inside the sleeve of a shirt I put in his cage for him.

I'll post pics ASAP. I'm on vacation this week so I'm really lazy. I'm still recovering from overindulging with a couple of girlfriends Friday night. I now remember why tequila is BAD. I'm getting too old for bars :roll:
