Hi Emily333

It’s good to hear you have had a hedgehog visiting. Food and water will be really helpful for them, especially in this hot dry weather we’ve been having. I’m guessing you already know what to feed, but in case not – cat/dog food, cat/kitten biscuits or hedgehog food and nothing else. Especially don’t feed mealworms as they are bad for them. It’s a good idea to leave water available 24 hours a day in this weather. A thirsty hog could venture out in the day time and it could be a lifesaver.

Good luck with the hedgehog(s) and happy hog watching!
