Argh, I hate having to double post here, sorry about this.
Anyway, so I was wondering, is a playpen neccesary? Also, can I take my future Hedgie outside in my backyard on warm summer afternoons? (we have absolutley no potential predators in the area, except cats...but that isn\'t a problem if i am sitting right next to the hedgie) and if I can, should I let him explore and eat plants (none are poisonous to humans in our backyard) and bugs as he wishes? I live in Bellevue (Seattle area in Washington) if this helps any.
