Hi, hedgehogs love to eat dog and cat food, they also love bread soaked in warm milk, we used to have a wild hedgehog that used to come into our garden at night and we always used to leave out a small plate of bread soaked in milk or dog food with a seperate bowl of milk for him to drink, try it he'll love it honestly.

Domesticated pygmy hedgehogs are primarily insectivores.
They require a diet high in protein and low in fat....such as crickets, june bugs, mealworms, etc.
Try also offering bits of fruit and veggies, egg, and cottage cheese.
If the proper diet is not available, a LOW FAT, good quality cat food may be used in the short term.:)
