Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog Weird behavior Reply To: Weird behavior


Hello, we have a hedgehog in our enclosed garden. He has an access point in the gate to get in and out which I believe he uses. Recently he has been in the garden a lot. We see him early evening just before dark and he slept in a corner once, secluded but not hidden. We have a cat who watches him from a distance but he seems totally unbothered by her. We have a house that he uses a lot at night. He appears to barricade the entrance with leaves and twigs when inside. THIS MORNING, he is laying inside with his face poking out, eyes open. The house is in a secluded, shaded area, but is this normal/healthy – at 11am??? Thanks
