Hi Hedgie Lover

Glad to hear you have Calvin back.

Re. Saphire. Hogs do need to drink water, but it may be, at this time of the year, that she has been able to find water elsewhere. I would keep supplying water, though, in case any alternative water source dries up or becomes inaccessible.

I’m not sure why the rescue would say Sweetpea, now weighing 600g can’t be released until late April. I suggest you draw their attention to guidance-on-releasing-rehabilitated-hedgehogs/ and make sure that they have the information contained in the paper referred to.

At the moment the Forum is misbehaving and doesn’t seem to want to take a post with a link in it. But you will find the appropriate information, if you go to:
Help Hedgehogs – Frequently Asked Questions – Can a hedgehog be released from rehabilitation during winter? Yes!
