What kind of cage do you recommend?

I personally use sterilite totes but this is the best cage for your buck! The MidWest Guinea Habitat. If you click on the image, it will take you to it’s page on for purchase.

Does my hedgehog need a wheel?

 Absolutely! And you can actually purchase one of those from!

What kind of house does my hedgehog need in his/her cage?

There are lots of different housing choices. Here is what I currently offer. I have igloos with fleece covers and a hedgie hut made from fleece and cotton or flannel. You can get these directly through my shop linked below, just click the image or here.

What is a snuggle/cuddle/bonding bag?

These are the fleece bags that are used to carry around your hedgehog. They can hang out in their bag on your lap while you watch tv, do homework, play on your computer etc. You can also use them inside the cage as a place for your hedgie to sleep! You can get these from me directly through my shop and there is always a bunch to choose from!


My hedgehog needs to be warm? How do I do that?

The best way to keep your new hedgie baby nice and toasty is to put a ceramic heat emitter over their cage. A quick google search will give you lots of ideas and options. You can pick one of those up at any big box store.

What about  bedding for the cage?

The options are wide and varied! From fleece liners to carefresh paper based beddings. Even aspen and kiln dried pine are great choices. Just stay away from cedar!
