Hi Mrs. Tiggy Winky

Really pleased for you that you have hoglets there now. It is always the way – them choosing to turn up the very time you aren’t there to see them!

As they are late hoglets and the Mum has also had extra demands on her so close to hibernation time, it is really important that you feed them good nutritious food. i.e. meat-based wet dog or cat food, hedgehog food or cat biscuits (NOT mealworms, sunflower hearts or peanuts). This will help to give them a better chance to grow big enough to survive hibernation.

Good luck to hog Mum and the little hoglets and happy watching.
