Pet Baby Hedgehog Care

I’m finally done with all my Christmas shopping and baking!  Woohoo!

Bug did a little Christmas shopping as well.  She bought a little Christmas tree for our pet Hedghogs which I think is just too sweet.

They were just 2 weeks old when we got them, so small, so cute but I now realize that they were too young to be separated from their parents and sold at the pet shop. They still need lots of warmth and they still can’t really eat their normal food at that time.   So we fed them mashed up cat food twice a day and provided them with some old socks since they like to hide and a heat pad.

Fast forward 3 weeks later and here they are!  Thriving and healthy and still very cute!  Meet Norbie and Chillie, our pet hedgehogs!

Norbie and Chillie’s Diet now at 1 month old

  • Our left over Baked Chicken
  • Pork soup with meat
  • Canned Cat food : Salmon and tuna
  • Scrambled Egg

They don’t need heat pads at this age but they still need to be in a warm place provided with a warm blanket.

Heat pad alternative — Water bottle filled with warm water ( cheap but need to be changed once the water cools down )

Thank you guys for reading and Merry Christmas!
