Hello there. I had a question as to whether or not we are feeding our hedgie the right diet.
Currently he is on a mix of purina one kitten food mixed with purina indoor cat food.
the kitten food is 40%protein and 14% fat and the indoor is 30% protein and 9% fat. both have chicken meal by product listed as one of the first 2 ingredents.
He is also given chicken, gerber meat sticks, eggs(scrambled) and a few meal worms as treats every now and then.
I read the food post but did not see any of the dry foods we feed. Another site said to mix a high quality cat food with a mid grade cat food, so I'm not sure we are feeding the right things and just wanted to see what we should change. We have a cat so any or all of the unused cat food can go to her. thanks for your input.

thanks all for the input. I'll be going to the pet store in a few days ( need to get new nail clippers for the cat ) so I'll look to see what I can replace the kitten food with as everyone seems to agree that the fat and protein are a little to high. I can give the rest of the kitten food to our cat Reesie as a treat every now and then so it won't be wasted.

I'm glad to hear the extra foods are good though:) Prickles loves the meat sticks from Gerber. I put them in the treat dish and you will instantly see movement from the hedgiebag. Its so cute. I think he likes those more then mealworms lol. We've only had him for about a month so we are varing his food slowly as to not cause tummy issues for him. So far its all gone well. I love this site for all its tips and advice. Its how we started using liners and we will never go back to bedding:) Thanks again.
:D
