So we are all constructed, and I have the first liner, but obs didn't measure correctly, opps. ( see picture)

I will get a heat mat next weekend and I have a wheel waiting for me but what else am I missing I know it's a lot but I'm hoping you guys can make sure my little man is spoiled.

On my list to get:

Heat mat
Thermometer
Tunnel
Sleeping Pouch
Dishes
Tray to sit wheel in
Toys
Puppy pads? Or alternative any ideas preferences?  
Correct sized liners
Nail scissors?
Iglu or house or cube again preferences?

To do:

wear old tshirt
Clean Lino and attach to viv

I use kitchen roll under their wheels, if you use a good quality one it works well.

Nail scissors or clippers always a good idea - don't go overboard on the toys as some hoggies ignore them and some play with them - get a couple and then you can add more if needed.

The cardboard tunnels work well but do need replacing as they tend to poop in them!

I do use pigloos for some hoggies retired/boys but prefer the wooden cabins for my breeding girls - all a matter of preference. xx

Kitchen role
Does seem more deadly available out here in the sticks, I did wonder if it was suitable.

Would a PVC tunnel be suitable, I work in screwfix and I saw a price the other day that seemed just the right size, and cleanable!

PVC is fine - bigger is always better and pvc is fab for ease of cleaning.

I put nail clipper set in the care pack, so you don't need that, and I put toys and balls...! I also put in a litter pan in there, which is actually a plastic dish, which I'll show you mine...when you come.
I have your wheel ready also.
I have put a little scrap fleece in with him, so it acts as a 'comfort blanket' when he goes to you....could sleep with a piece of blanket and just cut a bit off and put it in with him...!

So bowls..
Heat mat & thermostat.
Thermometer (cheap on e-bay)

Cheers Tayer I new you would say what I need and don't.

Do you guys think the bag is big enough?

Got the pipe today, looks huge but I think should be right.

It will be fine for now, you might have to make a bigger one as he grows but he is still a baby and will be all snuggly in there x

Right we are getting there slowly with our room, started on the units tho have now hot a brick wall as need better sized screws for units, not to mention a top and feet.

However Sebastian's house progresses, liners have been sent back to makers, alterations in progress and we put the lino down, and tunnel in.

I'll try upload picture but it doesn't work to well in the phone

Not essential, but can be worth keeping a toilet roll tube, cut it down the length somewhere and open it out a bit. Mine have all loved these. Ody used to stick his head and top of his body under it to poop. He loved his privacy! Very Happy

Lol Fiona.
They do love the fleecy tunnels to sleep in...all hoglets seem to like that, but as they grow up they rather liner diving or pouch...

So after a quick vist to see mum and dad say a little hello to them they gave him some dried mealies, to which he scoffed the first then anointed, parents where most confused. (He had already done that to me in the car licking the fuzz of my undercut first. )

Mum showed him his cube, he dived right in. Quick journey back home in my hood.

Home: he is now somewhere with in his cube. The electric heater is on warming the room, and I will fit his heat mat tomro, he had the microwaveable one with him tonight if he chooses to want it.

He's how it all looks, cheers for the advise on cube opening side down, he knew just what to do.

Thank you Tayer, so helpful and got to see the rest of the herd! The asda delivery chap was very confused by your daughter saying you were in the hedgehog house.
