Hi Hettihog

Really pleased to hear that Cutie is still visiting and growing well. Brilliant news! Don’t be too worried if Hetty goes off to hibernate before Cutie does. Often the hoglets are last to go. And of course not all hibernate. The last two winters, I’ve had hoglets who didn’t hibernate (despite being large enough to). One, who was a male, has since moved on, but last winter’s non-hibernator is still visiting. It will be interesting to see what she does this year.

But hoglets are not full adult size when they hibernate the first year, so don’t be too worried about that. They need to be 450g, but Cutie should make that easily if she/he keeps visiting and eating all that food.
