When I first got Rocko, I had pine shavings in his cage. He usually curled up in them and slept in a tight little ball with shavings all over him.

Recently, though, I switched him to fleece liners, and the way he sleeps on them is so funny! He sprawls all out with his front and back legs sticking out from under him! When I first saw it, I was freaked out - I thought it meant he was too warm, since I read about estivation. But I watched him for a while and he was fine, and got up to eat and run on his wheel after the lights went off. Ever since then, that's just how he sleeps! :lol:

I guess he just likes the way the fleece feels on his tummy. :D

What about your little ones?

LOL, adorable picture. :D

Inky has fleece "sleeping bags" that I double-bag (put one in another to make them extra thick) and he just curls up on his side and sleeps. Herman, a hedgie I've been caring for, does the same only he moves the bag to the very center of the cage, then sleeps under it with just his nose sticking out. :lol:

Herc will do his impression of a headgehog being run over by flopping out totally and deflating til he is almost flat which was a bit worrying at first.

If he is sulking he hides in his house and blocks the door with his toys, lining them up so no one can look in.

Otherwise he just flops out whereever he fancies and just closes his eyes and starts snoozing.

I love the picture!!!

Whyte sleeps in a tight ball, VERY tight ball. I swear he doesn't even "let his quills down" while sleeping, sheesh. By the time you can lift the blanket he is on full-alert, tucks his head in further, spikes are out. He is either wrapped up in his blankets (a large ball shows where in the house he is) or in his oval Kleenex box, taking up most of the box with his balled-up self.

Riley sleeps on his side like a fat lazy dog, I LOVE IT!!! He is so RELAXED!! He will sleep in the crook of my arm, on my lap, in his blankets, anywhere you put him he just lays on his side and falls asleep so easily. I will try to find my picture of it but one time I took a picture and his mouth was open, he looked dead so I may have deleted that pic hahahhaa!
*edited, I found the picture!*

Charley will usually sleep in a hedgie bag or in his house...except when his liners I made him are in the wash and I'm using one of my old baby blankets as his liner for the day...then, he'll crawl between the blankets folds. Only with this one blanket though, the rest of the time he doesn't burrow and just finds one of his pouches...

He sleeps half-curled up, I catch him doing it sometimes when he's hanging out with me. It's too cute, but if I move to go get the camera I wake him up...

Covertly... under her liner. I know she sleeps like a crescent roll because she has bed-head on one side of her face.

Both my girl and my boy sleep UNDER their fleece bedding. That being the case, I have no idea what position they are in since they prefer being covered up. :roll:


*Oh! And I love the sleeping pics of these guys! Keep em' coming! :D

Calvin curls up (he's the albino). His favorite non-igloo spots are the corner under the wheel, in the wheel, and (the last 2 days) under his liner after scratching/attacking the heck out of it.

Ender will have a slight curl or just sit in his litter pan and snooze. He crawls up under the hedgie bag and surrounds himself with fleece and paper towels so I can't peek in and see him sleeping.

My favorite for them is asleep in my hand or on my tummy.

Sophie loves to curl up under my blankets and spread out with her back feet out behind her and her forehead quills lowered.

Aerial that picture is adorable :)

I love pics of hedgies.

Turbo always sleeps under his liner, when i go to clean his cage of a morning he's always under there. I have no idea why when he has a perfectly great sleeping sack on top of the liner. He always gets removed from under the liner and placed back in his sack, and he stays there till night. They're so cute when asleep. They look chubby :lol:

Sometimes Quigley sleeps with his head (side or forehead) pressed onto the surface he's sleeping on and the his legs are all tucked under him and his butt/back is sort of in the air. He reminds me of how some toddlers sleep with their head and shoulders on the matress and their butts in the air.

Jadyn sleeps on her side on her pillow like a crescent roll when she is in her pigloo, when she is on my lap she stretches out all her legs and tucks her nose under. Bolt stretches out and tucks his blanket around himself, he does NOT like a pillow. :lol:

So Algy has several sleeping options...a sleeping bag, a house, and a pile of fleece scraps. I go to check on him, and where is he?



Yes. Curled up in a ball with his head under the LITTER PAN.

He is already such a goober *gigglesnort*
