I offer a heated cage package that has proven over the years to be efficient and effective.
Our reputation and our google reviews speak for themselves. I have 4.8 stars with over 100 positive reviews.
I hope to hear from you and to show you some babies and maybe you will be my next

I offer a 90 day replacement warranty on all of my animals. I do not sell breeding pairs.
FLEECE CAGE LINERS?
Fleece cage liners are custom-made and custom-fit fleece material used to line the bottom of the cage INSTEAD of using and replacing wood chips. The fleece has a sets of U-Haul blankets sewn inside the pieces for superior absorbance. You simply launder the liners once a week on cage day. You only need pone set of liners but may someday want two. It is a much cleaner method of maintaining the cage. Safer for the animal as well. And they come on some adorable fabrics to brighten up the cage. I buy these liners from a girl on Etsy. I have used the same girl for many years. She does high quality work. Ask to see when you visit me!
I HIGHY recommend these liners.
HEDGEHOG CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Hedgehogs are very easy to care for. They like indoor room temperature and are very easy feed because they can just eat dry cat food.
Here are some very basic facts about caring for a Hedgehog.
Hedgehogs grow to about the size of a small rabbit or a large Guinea pig.
Hedgehogs only live 4-5 years. Hedgehogs need no vet shots and seldom need to see a vet.
Hedgehogs can eat dry Purina One cat food. Always leave food out. And bottled drinking water as well.
Hedgehogs are nocturnal and like to party all night and sleep all day.
