I got my first hedgie two days ago. I named her Thistle cause it seemed kind of fitting lol..but i have a question about food. I read up on hedgies, but mainly listened to the peopel at our local petstore cause they generally know alot about everyone of their animals. Well, they were wrong on some things. One, they told me to use a water bottle and when I put it in she had NO idea how to use it. so I put a tiny bowl of water int heir insted. Second, they told me to use "Exotic Nutriant hedgehog complete." But everyone on other forums said to use catfood, a high quality kind low/diet. Should I switch her to that [gradually] with in the next couple weeks? I wish I would have found these forums before since the employees didnt seem to know what they were talking about. [I trusted them because I got a number of animals from them and they seemed to know alot about them]. Second, it stays between 72-75 in my house. and Im getting a heating pad for Thistle today. That'll be okay right? I generally know about all the care of a hedgie, its just those two questions I've been wondering about.
