What kind of food is it on? The two kinds of Go cat food I looked at, one (Natural Chicken, Fruit, & Vegetable) has 20% fat, which is a bit high, unless Charlie's still a baby. Once he got a bit older, though, you'd have to switch to something that has less than 15% fat. The 32% protein is okay, though. But the other kind (Natural Grain Free Chicken, Turkey & Duck), has 50% protein, which is way too high for a hedgie.

Oh, and it should have a meat or meat meal in the first five ingredients. You don't want to have corn or some other filler as one of the first few ingredients.

I think you'd better leave it altogether...only eating it for a short while might not hurt his kidneys much, but I think it's better to be safe than sorry. You really couldn't find any of of the foods on the list at all? It seems like at least one pet store around you should have at least one of them.... The Friskies really isn't good for hedgies. The first two ingredients are corn ingredients, and third is chicken by-product meal, which is just the feathers and beak and all the trash parts of the bird. Corn is just fillers, it doesn't give the hedgie any nutrients, since they can't digest it well or at all. Maybe you could try getting the Go-Cat food that foxyminxx has?
