Those pesky cats, thankfully mine all use the feeding station, and the 4inch hole keeps the cats away. Even though the advice is 5inch. This summer, Klepto was the biggest hog I’ve ever seen so far, and he managed with no problem.

Obviously, I might end up with very large hogs next summer, as they now know where the food is, so they’ll start eating it in the spring instead of July when I first started feeding them.

It’s possible that other neighbours are doing the same, but haven’t seen any evidence yet.

I might only have the one hog now still eating, Sapphire (who is in the hedgehog house), however, I did hear some movement where Opal’s nest is.

So maybe just the two now.

But I guess I’m very lucky to have two visiting as many people are desperate for just the one.

I put two bowls of food out last night – and one full bowl had been eaten, way too much for just one juvenile, however, they can eat a lot if they get the chance, so I’ve discovered.
