    [​IMG] I'm already in love with this little guy! Any ideas for toys for him? The breeder told me to feed him Purina One cat food mixed with Purina kitten food. Is that okay? Also..i bought Sunscription Vita Hedgehog Formula (petco) to mix with with the cat food. PLUS..i breed my own meal worms..so i figure to give him a few of them every night? Any other suggestions so i can keep him healthy? Thanks!

    Awww he's adorable. [​IMG]
    I asked DH to stop at a place that sells hedgehogs the other day; told him I just wanted to "look".
    He wouldn't stop. I don't know why. [​IMG]

    He's adorable! I had hedgehogs before, they were great little pets! Sounds like a good diet to me. They cat toys will work as well. Enjoy!!! Make sure to handle him a lot to keep him friendly too. [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL..cause he knows you'd try and come home with one.
    On a side note..my cats seem to think that i've brought them home a new toy... They just sit and watch his cage.. [​IMG]

    these are the same cats that stuck their paws through cage wires before and ripped apart and pulled out my little button quails.. [​IMG]

    if they try to with a hedgehog, they'll get a painful surprise...my brother has one and their boxer tried to play with her...a nose full of pokes and he won't go near Pippa anymore.
