I can’t help feeling, as I’ve been careful, but not as careful as I am being now – I can’t help feeling that I might have caused the hedgehogs to have lungworm and the internal parasites – I feel I might have contributed by not steralising their bowls everyday, only washing them in hot water, but not boiling. I pick up poo each time I see it in the feeding station, and wash the surface with hot water with kitchen roll, and I have been giving it a proper clean out with boiling water each week (all of it, all the sides and outside), but I think I should of been doing that daily, or at least just the surface they walk on.

So I’m enjoying looking after Sweetpea, and feel happier that I’m learning these lessons now – but I feel guilty that I could have contributed in some way by not being as thorough as I should have been.
