One type of hedgehog habitat that you could start with.

Below  is a picture of one of our hedgehog cage set-ups. This is the one we typically use for all of our hedgehogs but it is only an example. Styles will vary somewhat. Remember that the larger the cage the more fun for you and your pet.

A Pretty Good Start

A- CAGE… You will notice that on this cage the wires are far enough apart so that an adult human can fit their fingers through the spacing. We prefer to use this style cage because hedgehogs sometimes climb up the cage wire but typically just let go to get down. Smaller more tightly spaced wires are not safe because when the hedgehog wants to get down and lets go, a foot or leg can become stuck between the wires. The larger spacing of the wires helps to prevent the foot or leg from becoming lodged. There are several styles of cages available to choose from. Just be sure that it is an open-air cage and not an enclosed box style, glass, plastic or wooded container.

B- 8 OUNCE WATER BOTTLE

C- SMALL FOOD DISH

D- TOY (at least one)

E- SILENT SPINNER WHEEL (One wheel is nice but two are better)

F- SLEEPING DEN (IGLOO)

G- LITTER (any non toxic litter except clumping should work)

H- CORNER STYLE LITTER BOX

I- SCREENED WHEEL (we prefer this style as the animal's feet do not fit through the screening and it seems to stay cleaner longer)

J- ASPEN BEDDING

*Carefresh bedding is a great substitute for Aspen bedding

* We prefer to feed kitten and cat food to all of our hedgehogs

We are hobbyists who specialize in raising specialty pets. Being that we are a private home not a pet store we do not sell supplies and we do not keep regular hours; all visits are by appointment only and all appointments need to be scheduled via a phone call (not an email or text). We need to talk to you before we will commit to a sale of any animal.

Do to time constraints, we are not scheduling visits to our home in Mississauga however we still welcome visits to our home in beautiful Niagara Falls, Ontario. (Just under an hour from Mississauga)

If, after reviewing our website should you still have questions that have not already been addressed on the site or if you would like to book a time to visit us at our home in Niagara Falls please call us instead of emailing us at 289-990-hpets (289-990-4738) in Niagara Falls or 647-725-1111. (We try to keep our phone lines open from 10AM until 10PM daily.)
