I am not sure where everyone decided that hedgehogs don't stink. While I love my little hedgie, she is a completely disgusting little nasty booger I have her on fleece bedding, and I clean her cage daily. Everything is cleaned:Litter box, wheel, cage- every single day. At night I wake up from lovely, terrific smells coming from her cage. (Eew.) More often than not I find her buried in the layers of paper towels in her litter box, after they have been heavily used from the night(despite my efforts to provide a dig box, and a fleece pile of dig tunnel thing) . She drags her litter box across the cage, dumps it out, and throws poop everywhere. She only poops on her wheel, and then sleeps in all her poop and pee. I can't even explain to you the smell she creates in the night. My entire life I have spent 99% of my time around horses and livestock, none can compare to my little hedgehog. I am so hoping she will grow out of this! She is heavily quilling right now, at almost 10 weeks old. She has been lightly quilling since I got her at about 6 weeks, up until now. I absolutely love her though So is it just a fairytale that hedgehogs aren't very stinky animals, or is this just a baby thing?
