Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Concerned.. Reply To: Concerned..


Thanks, Stef – Yes, Mission ONE is to catch the one with the dodgy leg, ASAP..!

Tricky one last night..! Checked in on the feeder around half 10.. only to be greeted by TWO of our little friends! Wasn’t expecting that – so when both felt happy enough they dashed off at a fair lick..! & nipped under the fence at their usual entry / exit.. ( so not my Lady with the Limp, then….??? Well, I thought not.. ) to get my gloves, just in case! Moments later, shouts from the house “..there’s a ( third ) hedgehog at the front door!!” Tracked it down to the border & retrieved it to let it chill on the lawn for a bit – nope.. no injuries!

So, more comings & goings & another one ( assuming one of the regulars ) back in the box.. but moving Ok, no sign of an injury.. UNTIL around the camera catches that one leaving around 3AM.. WITH A LIMP! So, it WAS there the whole time, but not a hint or clear indication of the injury..

So.… the plan tonight..? Three boxes at the ready, minimum – catch any that I can & let them all chill a bit, unroll one at a time, until I find my Lady!!

Who’d’ve thought..??? Just like the Buses.. you wait & wait & then 3 come along at once..!!! LOL!
