Hi everyone!

I picked up my new baby hedgehog yesterday morning from my local petstore. (Yes I know, no one like pet store hedgie, but I wasn't going to wait on an 8 month waiting list for the only breeder in CT.) Anyways, I've had her for a day and she's not eating!!! I'm worried something wrong, I had bought her the same "Vitakraft" food they were using in the store, to at somepoint start switching her over to a cat food or some other more nutrishional hedgie food. I know she did do some drinking last night, cause she knocked her water bottle off the side of the cage. I also found the poops she did last night before I went to bed, in her food dish, i'm maybe thinking she thinks it a toilet? I'm worried and I need some advice. She seems to be friendly and all, I had her out of her cage last night when she finaly woke up after she did some exploring of her cage for about 45 minutes. She seemed fine, she got along with my whole family, including my two dogs. She was a very happy hedgie. :) Still didnt eat though, I even tried giving her a few meal worm treats and she didnt even take those. :( SO I dont know, here the pictures of where she lives and of her, she's a cutie.

Thanks for looking,

I did put a box for a while for her to sleep in but she stopped using it last night.

What did you decide on for a name? (Kendra *cough* *cough*) :D

You know what i did? I crushed up the mealies and mixed them with the food so that the taste got on the kibble. That did the trick then i slowly stopped putting crushed mealies in there . Now she loves her kibble with out the meal worms! :)
