Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings feeding station has now become popular Reply To: feeding station has now become popular


The little hedgehog that makes a little snuffle sound when she eats – always, no matter what, steps in the water bowl and never ever walks around it – no matter where I put the bowl, she still insists in stepping inside it to get to where she wants (inside the feeding station) – as soon as the hogs come out, the water bowl is dirty again — it’s quite cute but why does she do this? Does she not realise it’s a bowl and is used to stepping over things in natural habitats and not walking round things?

I find rabbits do this also, my rabbit, rather than walk one inch to it’s side to get around my foot, would rather nudge my foot with it’s nose until I move it – I’m looking after a friend’s rabbit at the moment, and she does the exact same thing – so funny and so adorable. Rabbits can be a bit bossy though.
