They really aren't comparable to a cat or dog. For one they live in cages like a rabbit. Although i do let him run around the living room, just got to keep an eye on him and make sure he doesnt crawl under the couch. Maintenance is fairly easy, clean his cage once a week, bath once a month. Diet is easy too, i give him a mix of purina one dry kitten food and this hedge hog food i found at petco.
