Hi, my understanding is that it’s best to put the food somewhere else, not in the house where they sleep. Your hog has obviously decided he likes sleeping in your planter so it’s best to leave him undisturbed. I put the food out, some distance away from the sleeping house, in an upturned plastic box (with a hedgehog-sized hole) so the hogs can get in but not larger animals like cats or foxes. Unfortunately I have Ratty and Mousy in my garden too, and I don’t think there’s anything we can do to deter them.
