Hi Hettihog, Simbo65l I have arthritis too, which is why I said what I did. Just drag the man out of bed…. caught up on your sleep. Sounds like fort… next door. If in there how did they get out? The rspca are good people but sometimes can take a long time. I rescued a cock and hen once, they were freezing to death, no food or water. Cock was sat on hen to keep her warm. I took them in but because I rescued them, it became less urgent so it was two days before they came for then. I was asked for a donation so I gave them the sack of food I’d had to buy to look after them! Simbo, your hog is probably looking for a hibernation site, it’s getting close to needing one and it doesn’t know the area yet, so keep calm both of you or you will be ill, then no help to anyone. Wishing you all the very best.
