Home Forums Champions’ chat Cats eating hedgehog food Reply To: Cats eating hedgehog food


I have three young cats who will eat the hog food if given the chance, even though their own food is always available! I’ve got over this by building a simple shelter. It’s just a large sheet of clear polycarbonate (about 800mm square) with a post at each corner. The post is about 120mm tall which lifts the “roof” just high enough off the ground for a hog to walk under unhindered but the cats would have to crawl quite a way on their tummies to get at the food – so they don’t. It also has the advantage of keeping the food dry should it rain.
