Hi Butterfly2honey

Out in your pj’s at 4am – that sounds like dedication! But it’s good to hear that a hog turned up again.

There are various things you can use as shelter for food, fairly quickly:

– Perspex sheet balanced on bricks of earth filled pots at each corner and weighted down above – you could also use a sheet of wood (or other material), but wouldn’t be able to see through it, of course.

– One of those plastic footstools placed over a food bowl.

– The top part of a covered bird table

– Small plastic table.

If all else fails, unless it’s really pouring the hogs may not mind the food getting a bit wet, if it’s originally dry cat/kitten biscuits.

Good luck.
