Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings has Huffy stopped huffing or is it a different hedgehog? Reply To: has Huffy stopped huffing or is it a different hedgehog?


I’m absolutely over the moon tonight, I’ve just seen Huffy go into the hedgehog home, so it’s Huffy that’s the resident in there.

I couldn’t be more happier.

I’m a bit concerned about another hedgehog though, as all the hedgehogs scuttle away when they have finished in the feeding station, but this one didn’t. It came out had a drink and then scrathing it’s head, went back in again, came out, had another drink, scratched it’s head, went back in again, even more food, and then it came out for good, but it kept scratching and scratching and scratching. It only walked a few inches, then scratching, another few inches, more scratching. It took about 10minutes for it to disappear from my sight.

What I will do, I’ll ring the hedgehog hospital tmrw (couldn’t get through the other day) and tell them, and then if I see it again, I’ll pick it up and put it in a box to take to the hospital. I’ll prepare the box tmrw and put a towel in it, and get a dish ready for water.

At least it’s eating and drinking, but so worried about the level of scratching and the fact it was moving slowly. Very worrying.
