Hi Hettihog, so pleased your male has returned and wasn’t the one you feared in a road accident. Gosh, I thought Big Benny was large, but he doesn’t lift the lid on our station.
I’m confused what is going on here. From eating us out of house and home, (I’ve just received 2×1.3kg of semi moist food so I don’t run out) they have stopped eating. All bar one of the little ones who is managing to eat a small amount. The rest are going in the feeding station but not eating. The water pot still has water in. That doesn’t matter so much as there’s plenty of water all around the house. I’m quite concerned, as I’m use to them disappearing for long periods of time, especially when it’s rained and there’s plenty of live food around. But it’s the fact they are visiting the station and not eating! The food hasn’t changed, not even opened a new packet! They love to confuse us don’t they? Glad your little one is doing well and Hetty. They will soon all be hibernating and what will we all do…… Best wishes
