Sweep, my mum’s cat, had his bits chopped off, and still went on a murder spree – it was a phase he went through. He’d stop for a while, and then he’d go through another phase that would last a few months, killing something either nightly or weekly. Other than that he was a really loving cat and very protective of the guinea pigs and made a nice companion for the house rabbit. The rabbit used to show off in front of him, and Sweep used to spend each night enjoying the rabbit jumping around and doing other daft rabbit stuff.

BTW, I put the square back on the entrance of the feeding station, secured it this time with duct tape, but it fits snuggly in, so my entrance is back to 4 by 4inch which is probably a bit too small, but the hedgehogs seem to have no problem fitting inside. However, they seam to have grown a little bit since last month, and I wonder if they grow any more they might struggle.

However, it’s kept the cats away, so it’s staying on for the time being.
