I have only ever offered hedgehog biscuits. Being a vegetarian the wet cat and dog food smell and look makes me feel a bit queasy, but you can offer both. They seem to go mad for the spikes semi moist, but I also mix it with the spikes dry. The bonus is cats don’t seem to be keen on pinching the spikes food.
Don’t forget to offer plenty of water as they drink a lot. I have several saucers dotted all around the garden as well as by the feeding station.
