My hedgehog has taken over the cat kennel again this year. I watch him on the cameras happily coming in & out during the evening. He’s used all the bedding I put out for him. Hopefully he will use this space to hibernate as it’s getting close now. The kennel is very close to my back door but as long as I don’t get too close he seems pretty happy. Though yesterday I didn’t realise he was in the feeding box and put the feeding dish right on top oh him. No harm done as he went back to the kennel within the hour.
The cat & visiting fox seem wary of the hog, so all good in the garden.
