And great news! We're adding a THIRD hedgehog to the family! :D His name is Spike and he belongs to my friend Ryan, but with school and work Ryan can't find the time to care for him anymore, so he is coming to live with my two. I am so excited to have him come here as he is one of the sweetest laid back hedgies I've met.

While they were at my friends in Portland they didn't get the best of care so I have been giving them canned cat food to make them gain some weight. These pictures were taken in the bathroom. That is where they get their play time.

Speedy eating


Flower- *sniff sniff* "Do I smell something?"


"I think mom's got a treat!"

Well the hedgies got a bath today so I thought I would take a few pictures of them to show you all. ENJOY! :D

Here's Flower on her wheel before she got a bath. What a dirty little girl! :eek:








After the bath she always goes immediately to my shoulder to cuddle and get warm.

I let her run around on the bed for a bit after. She had so much energy today.


"Um, mom? Shouldn't you be watching her instead of taking pictures?"


"Hey there. Nice to meet you!"


"Wait, where are you going? We just met!"

cute pictures but a few questions...

are the two hedgies in the fourth picture both males?

is the food your feeding your hedgies just moist cat food, or something else as well?

and lastly how often do you bathe your hedgies?

No they are not both males, and no I have no intentions of breeding these two together. ;)

No I do not feed only moist cat food. I see you are a breeder though I can insure you I know how to care for my small herd. I've owned hedgehogs for about 8 years now. They are also fed kibble (Nutro and Chicken Soup), fresh fruits and veggies, their meal worms and freeze dried crickets, as well as treats. The only reason why they had so much of this treat is to put a little weight on them, especially Flower.

I only bathe them when they absolutely need it, though they get their regular grooming (quill cleaning as well as nail trims) about every two weeks. :)
