I’ve been feeding a very large hedgehog ordinary tinned meaty cat food. I’d like to know how much or how often I should feed the not so little fella? It normally comes looking for food around 22:00 and we put out more than it can eat. It then comes back around 01:30 and finishes whatever is left. It then comes back again at around 03:30 when all the cat food is gone. Should I be feeding it more/less? I get the impression this hedgehog would visit 6 times a day and eat everything it could on every visit which doesn’t sound naturally healthy.
