Hi Wobblez
Where there is hedgehog food, there are cats! My solution, which seems to work a treat, is to feed the hogs under a one metre square wooden packing pallet (not the prettiest feature I admit)! Put the food in the centre of it and the cats (and foxes) can’t crawl that far under it, but it is the perfect height for hedgehogs! I put some tarpaulin over it to keep it dry underneath and the hedgehogs quite like it as it gives them a bit of privacy too! One hog seems to think she owns it though and camps there for quite a lot of the night, huffing at any other hog who goes underneath. The downside is you can’t see them when they are under there, but you can hear them crunching. I have a camera that catches them going in and out, and I’ve never seen a cat go under. Once it is light, however, the blackbirds do a fine job of dashing underneath to finish off the leftovers!
