Is this the cage?

http://www.everythingforpets.com/ferpla ... .dept.815/

What are the measurements of it? She needs a minimum of 2 square feet. If that is the cage it looks very similar to the zoo zone which is a cage that is often recommended by pet stores but is not very good. See this thread for a discussion of the zoo zone viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2731&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=zoo+zone

The best type of cage is just your basic deep plastic bottom wire top cage. They are also the most flexible in terms of heating in that you can use any type of heating system with them fairly easily.

Also since hedgehogs are nocturnal you might be taking her out too early. Some times they don't like to be woken up until 10 or 11 pm sometimes even later than that. In stead of blocking off hiding places why not get a proper small animal playpen. There are lots of threads on these boards about which ones are the best. You can do a search by using the search box in the upper right hand corner of the title banner at the top of the page.

Your hedgehog sounds pretty friendly to me. Just curious. She may always ball when you pick her up at first but if she is coming out so quickly and squirming around she probably just wants to explore. Get her things she can crawl into and under like tubes, Kleenex boxes, cardboard egg cartons, plastic margarine containers etc. Sit on the floor with her in the playpen and she may climb onto your lap for a sleep when she is finished exploring.
