Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Gone missing Reply To: Gone missing


I haven’t seen my hog again for some days now. It came back after two weeks when the holes were cut in the fence and took up residence again. This is the second period they have gone missing. I bought a new dome hog house to use as a feeding station now the rains have arrived and the food was being eaten every night but over the last few days all the cam is picking up is rats and fat ones too! But no hedgehogs. The mint defo doesn’t work! Rats seen scurrying all over it. I have moved it into the open again and put our half cat food half hog food in the hope this will deter rats. Actually I would like to attract a cat to spread its scent around.
