For the fleece blankets all you have to do it take the loose strings off and you can cut them down to size to if you want. For fleece fabric you can go to any place that sells fabric to find it, Walmart, Han**** fabric, Joanns ect. You can either sew some up with multi layers and make sure no exposed seams or loose threads or you can just cut them to size because fleece doesn't fray.

You'll also want to make sure that you have a thermometer to make sure the cage is staying around 75 degrees. Some like a degree or too cooler but most tend to like it 75 or warmer. Hibernation attempts can be fatal. When you look for a new cage the best option for cages would be a wire topped plastic bottom cage that has nothing in that they could climb on and that had more than 2 square feet (4 is better). I use a ferret nation and they work great but there is alot of other ones out there too that work good. You'll want to change the aquarium as soon as you can especially since they are showing respiratory symptoms. You may find too that its best to just house them seperatly to avoid the risks of eye pokes or fighting injuries.

From the symptoms you said it sounds like they may have URI's. Its good you are getting them to the vet cause small animals can take a turn quickly.

Congratulations on your new hedgies and hope they get to feeling better. The pic of your other animal is too cute :)
