New Pocket

An old sweater has found a new life as a hedgehog bag! Ira's not really sure what to make of his new little pocket and doesn't want to sleep in it, but he does like to spend time there when he's outside of his cage. It's been getting colder recently, and I've been really concerned about keeping Ira at a cozy temperature. African Pygmy Hedgehogs should be kept at a temperature at least 70 degrees to ensure that they don't make an attempt at hibernation -- if they do it could be fatal.

Now, with the bag, I'm not so worried he's going to get chilly when we spend time together!
