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?


The poorly hedgehog has just visited, I’m trying to get through to two different hedgehog hospitals but can never get through – I’ve got a box out, put a towel in it and found two small dishes – if it comes back tonight I’m gonna have to try pick her up with gardening gloves – and will probably have to keep her in the box indoors until tmrw morning. That’s if she comes back tonight – if not it will have to tmrw night.

I’m worried about picking them up, how do you do it?

Also there was a fox that appeared, and was fairly near, so I made a noise and it disappeared from sight, I went up right close to the hedgehog, thinking it would curl into a ball so I could pick her up – but she didn’t curl up she just looked at me, and then walked off, but I couldn’t follow her as she went under the school fence – I have no way of getting in as they have big locked fences.

I wish I had picked her up sooner, rather than just watching her eat – I’m so nervous about it – but I’m gonna have to do it.

It was weird how she wasn’t scared of me, but I’m worried she won’t run off when the fox sees her.

At least I can recognise her – compared to how Huffy is, and what she is like, Huffy seems to be fit and healthy.

I’m really annoyed with myself for not picking her up – now the fox might get her – drats!
