Well, not long after my last post they all went AWOL again and some nights we have been down to ZERO hogs. Now I don’t want to tempt fate here, but at the moment we are up to two and sometimes three. 🙂 Nero (or VI) vanished and has been replaced by Scrappy (III), so called because he has a large scar running the length of his chin. We also have a small female, she could be Nagini, but I’m still not 100% sure and occasionally we catch a glimpse of a juvenile who walks up to the food bowl, has a good old sniff and then walks off with his nose in the air, refusing to eat anything that’s on offer. I have been busy buying all kinds of hoggy delights to tempt them back, but they are just not interested, the Ark hedgehog Muesli is going down well with birds and an array of gourmet cat biscuits is tempting the entire village population of felines, but none of it good enough for our pampered Millennial hoggies it seems.

None of our hedgehog houses are deemed up to the mark either, so we are desperately hoping that they will be tempted back by a purpose built des res under the new shed. Yes, if 80 square feet of sub divided, dry and insulated accommodation along with an assortment of bedding isn’t good enough for the little darlings then I don’t know what is.

Oh yes, and it seems that the cloaking device has been further refined; it is now possible for an entire dish of prime sausage meat to vanish without a single clip of the culprits, whilst every visit to the adjoining dish of cat biscuits is recorded in full throughout the night…I kid you not!
