And don't forget a heat source! Especially in case the power goes out.

It wouldn't be ideal, but there's handwarmers and footwarmers that you can find in an outdoor store or section. All you have to do is open them and they start warming up. Like I said, not ideal, since they'd only be like a heating pad, but they'd do in a pinch.

Also a lot of people keep those hand warmers for them too, it's not to put directly on the hedgie but to put under the fleece or the tub depending as an emergent idea. :]

I know this thread has been "dead" for a while but just thought I would say I'm glad this was mentioned. I live in Texas so we get a lot of tornado threats in the spring. Unfortunately in Texas we don't have basements so I think I would just have to drag Prims storage bin into the hall where we go when the tornado sirens go off. Will need to collect some stuff to keep her warm, although keep her warm isn't usually an issues in Texas lol.
