Thanks. I posted earlier but must have accidentally deleted it when I tried to add a photo of the adult rescue, who kept climbing out of the inner box so it could sleep on top of the hot water bottle.

It had a good night (active, ate a lot) and went to the vet this morning. I will phone to ask what they think and what they plan to do. They were recommended as being very good with wildlife, and I’ve said I’m happy for it to be released back in the garden.

I won’t be able to do anything about the hoglet for the next few days but thanks for the advice. I feel a lot more confident after dealing with my first smelly, noisy, messy rescue, who seemed quite happy in its impromptu hedgehog spa.
