Sounds like you’ve well and truly got the bug already! Really good to hear you have a hog visitor.

Yes, I would just keep leaving food out (hedgehog/cat/dog food is all fine). I would always leave some water sources outside as well – and 24 hours a day in case a dehydrated hog or nursing mother is desperate for a drink during the day.

Re. hibernating – as Gr8mums says, they like to keep us guessing. Sometimes they decide to build nests in feeding boxes!

Good luck.
