I just received my hedgehog a few days ago now. He has been scratching quite a bit since we first got him and when we did, he had a blanket in there. I thought maybe that would harbor mites. Also, his rear and underbelly is sort of red, rather than pink. Please help. If you need pictures, i can post. I really want him to be okay.

Fabric doesn't usually harbor mites - just wood. Have you washed the blanket at all? I wonder if he's having some kind of allergic reaction to something about the blanket or a detergent or something. Pictures would help us to see if the color looks abnormal or not! Is he losing quills at all? And is he scratching in his quills, or just his underbelly, or other places?
