thank you both for getting in touch, I really appreciate it.

We have stopped the mealworms, and I brought the spikes food both wet and dry. However this seems to have attracted lots of local cats, so we’ve had to stop this too. Is there any other food, which hedgehogs like but other animals don’t, which we could provide? We do have slugs and snails in the garden and we do not put down any pellets or killers. The hedgehog seems to be doing a good job of clearing these up. We put down plenty of water in small saucers for it. We love having it in the garden! We want to make it as comfortable and hedgehog friendly as possible, in the hope that we may see some hoglets in the future.

Thank you so much for replying.
