That’s really good news Annker,

So I’ll think I’ll keep my wooden square on as when it was off, the cats were getting in every day and would also push the bricks and lift up the wooden lid (on top of the bricks outside the entrance) – even though I put a pretty heavy big stone on top – but now the 4 by 4 inch hole seems to be the only deterrent for these acrobatic cats.

I love the names people give to their hedgehogs, like Big Benny. I don’t know yet which hedgehog is which, there is two that are quite distinguishable from the others, so I should really find a suitable name for them. I did call one of them Hoggy at first during the first week of feeding them, but I soon realised Hoggy was one of a few hedgehogs, so at the moment, they are all called Hoggy.
