Hi Natalie

There are some hedgehog foods which cats are supposed to like less – but there is always an exception. For instance I Love Hedgehogs – there are other similar ones available. But you might be better off trying to create a cat proof feeding area. Some people use plastic see through under bed stores (hedgehog sized hole with tape around the edges of the hole and possibly a pipe as tunnel – examples under the hedgehog feeding link I gave you above). I used a piece of perspex balanced on 4, 3 litre pots filled with earth. Bricks on top of the perspex to stop it being pushed up. Theoretically, you could use any sheet of material, but see through stuff means you can still see the hogs. So, high enough for the hogs but just that bit more difficult for the cats, so most don’t bother to try.

But making sure the garden is hog friendly is a brilliant thing to do, too.

So pleased you are enjoying having the hog around.
