paper pad What supplies do hedgehogs have to have (besides tons if toys)?

I am wondering, what do you guys think you need for a hedgehog? Shelters and breeders have given me lists, but I want to know what you guys think.

Solid bottom cage of at least 4sq ft
fleece liner for cage
possibly some items to weigh down fleece liner if you have a liner diver
bucket or saucer wheel with solid running surface
proper cat food (less than 15% fat, between 30-35% protein)
There's a list around of acceptable cat foods if you go looking
water bowl
hedgie bag for sleeping, they prefer it to a house especially those plastic igloos that let in too much light and can't be snuggled in to
They don't play too much with toys but some like plastic cat balls (throw away any foam ones that come in the pack) and light weight, mostly paper, bird toys

To akane's list, I'd add a reliable heat source. The specific type will depend on the type of cage you choose.
