I keep my hedgies in simple cages with plastic bottoms and wire tops; one level; in a room that stays 75-80 degrees. These cages are very easy to clean and there is no danger of falling if they do move around. They have shirts and igloos to snuggle inside, food bowls, and a wheel which is only placed in the cage at night. For bedding I use Carefresh.
For playtime they have the run of a large wire playpen (purchased at Wal-Mart) with many toys inside (paper tubes, wood toys, stuffed balls, etc.)
As a staple food, I mix a soft insectivore diet, Pretty Pets hedgehog food, and a pinch of ultra-blend fruit and veggie mix. I also provide a variety of cooked meats, fruits, and vegetables on occasion. A couple of times a week I will also give either mealworms or canned crickets as a treat.
I used a T-shirt to pick up my hedgies when I first got them. Now I just slide my hands underneath their bellies, make sure their feet are firmly on my hands, and draw them close to me.
I clean poopy feet as needed
I just let them run over a very wet washcloth and this does a great job.
