Look at all that pink! Is that stuffed hedgehog in there a dog toy or just a normal stuffie?

This should provide some motivation to finally finish the Terrible Trio's new cages. I have everything cut and ready... just not time to put it together.

New cage floors, sides and a half level in each cage. You know how Lisa has her cages set up? Like that. Since my hogs like to see out, I'm doing cut outs in the coroplast sides and attaching plastic mesh as well. That's a pain in the you-know-what.

I've got a 2 level Ferret Nation for my boys and I'm in love with cage. I can't image how I dealt with the previous cages before purchasing this one.

This an overall view with the cage doors closed:


This is a close up of one level. We change the set up weekly so this is from when I first arranged the items:

Default Sid's Condo

I felt really bad that I had my new hedgie in a store cage so I built this one when I was 8 months pregnant. I guess you can say I was "nesting" LoL

Love the decor?? Got it from the Nancy at the Hedgie Den.

Default Question about Bedding...

I've noticed that in both of your cages, you guys are using a fabric as the bedding. I was wondering if there was a reason that you use fabric over other bedding and how your hedgies like it. Thanks!

Many people use fabric bedding simply because it's safer and much nicer to use. It doesn't harbor mites, it's not dusty and there's no way a hedgehog can get slivers in their sensitive areas. It's also relatively inexpensive after the first purchase, because all you have to do is wash it and it's as good as new. For hedgehogs with respiratory illnesses, fabric liners are great because they won't irritate the nose with dust.

All around, liners are just more health and eco friendly for the little quill balls.
