Home Forums Champions’ chat Chilli? Reply To: Chilli?


I’ve found dried hedgehog food is less appealing to cats then cat food, I don’t know about rats but I’ve never seen any on camera .
It’s probably best to avoid feeding hedgehogs mealworms as they can cause serious health problems this pdf file from Vale Wildlife has more information on that and what to feed and what not to feed.
As for the chilli I doubt hogs would appreciate that, they have a very good sense of smell and I imagine it would put them off.
