Thank you Nic. In fact this hog has 9 lives as my neighbour on the other side first found it in August (well we assume it’s the same one) INSIDE his watering can which he claims was standing up at the time, but luckily with no water inside. I guess the poor thing was looking for water. I am trying to retrain this neighbour not to put down the toxic slug pellets next growing season but not sure if he will comply. I plan to buy him some of the non toxic variety in the hopes that will persuade him.

I will post separately about the new little house that is arriving and how best to preserve it without damaging the hedgehog.
