Hi Puds, The little hedgehog who is named Cutiepie by the little boy who saw him in the garden before I rescued him, is doing well Still getting treatment and weighing in at 164 grams. According to what I have read he is probably about 4 weeks old, should still be with mum and isn’t weaned yet. When he is better he will be off to Brent Lodge. The vet nurse has fallen in love with him and looking after him really well.
I have said that if Brent Lodge would like him to be released back here when he is big enough I would pick him up.
I don’t hold much hope for the other hoglets that were seen before this but will keep looking out for them.
The fox cubs are a pain when they get into the feeding station but they are so lovely too. I like all wildlife but we don’t encourage the foxes.
If it wasn’t for humans taking away all their natural habitat I am sure all the animals would get on just fine as there would be natural habitat and food for all.
What a world!
