Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Finally! I’ve got cat proof feeding stations. Reply To: Finally! I’ve got cat proof feeding stations.


I have no understanding of why I have become so obsessed by the spikey ones or why I get so upset when I see injured or dead ones.
The hubby shares some of the love but he can’t understand why I have to keep all the footage from the trail cams. I also talk about them non stop and any opportunity I get to talk about them and making holes in fences etc- off I go !!!
Sadly the beautiful regular we had has vanished. Looking at time lines and cross referencing with another hedgehog lady a few doors away I have come to the conclusion that she had 5 babies, who were seen out with her. Then there was big machinery used in a garden and since then they have not been seen. I have rescued a little one out in the day who is now out of the vet and at Brent Lodge being looked after until ready for release. AND yesterday I was just opening the French doors to get some air when I saw something on the lawn that got my heart thumping. Another hoglet, not moving. It too is now at the vet and they have seen a damaged foot. Only weighing in at 117 grams i really hope he makes it. The lovely nurses have said that they will have to give antibiotics and hopefully if he gets better he too will be at Brent Lodge. I am worrying about this one as he is soooo small and probably not fully weaned. I am thinking that these 2 are from the 5 hoglets previously seen and something has happened to mummy.
Will ring for an update tomorrow
