Thread: Doesn't like any treats....

    Doesn't like any treats....

    My hedgehog Nellie won't eat anything I've tried to give her as a treat. Even mealworms! The most she has ever done is lick something then walk away. (And that was a french fry which I wasn't expecting her to like anyway but was willing to give it a try) Pretty much whatever I am eating that I think she should eat I try to give her and she is never even interested! I guess she is just happy with her cat food...Suggestions?

    Some hedgehogs just aren't much into treats. Continue offering her crumbs of healthy treats (and no, a french fry doesn't count) and she may decide to try it and like it.

    What Becca said and:

    Keep treats small. Hedgehogs have tiny stomachs and they will get the majority of the good stuff they need from the cat food.
