Hi Kitty,

Thanks very much for the prompt reply. I am providing a specialist Hedgehog food that I buy from ‘Pets Corner’. It has pellets with banana chips, dried cranberries and soldier fly larvae, to which I add a little water. This is Mum’s second year in our hedgehog house, and she’s always preferred her food soggy. (Yep, I’m confident it’s the same hedgehog, partly because of her behaviour and partly because she has two distinctive patches on her bum!)
The food bowl is on the patio, away from our house, and the hoglets haven’t ventured that far yet. I’m hoping to see the little ones join her once they get braver, but at the moment they stay very close to their house at the other end of the garden.
We live in Oxfordshire, and last year Mum didn’t go into hibernation until a couple of weeks before Xmas. I’m hopeful that the hoglets will learn that there’s always food available here before they go their own way. Thanks for the number, it’ll be good to have someone to discuss options with.

Kind regards, Lily.
