I use to rescue hedgie's, they are so prone to upper respritory diseases, they really are not a pet for a child. Please make sure you either give very young meal worms or cut them in half, some will drop them into boiling water to kill them first. They can be litter trained and it really isn't hard to do, do not use clumping or scented, the good old fashion clay one is best, they prefer to do their duty in there than on shavings. they need lots of exercise outside of their cages and mazes can be set up for them, they love digging and rooting so you can set their cage like that and hide their food under "logs", buried into sand. A good quality cat food (kibble) is great for them along with the commercial food.
