Hi Nic

I’d be worried about the responsibility too, you seem to have cracked it regarding keeping cat out & giving clever little hoglet a way in, well done! Frank managed to bend his way in last year when I partitioned off the catbox for any hog who fancied it, you’d think it was physically impossible because of the angles & small proportions of it but I watched him squeeze his way in, disappear inside & eventually came out – head first – again. That’s one reason cats get into so much trouble, determination to see something & they sometimes get stuck.

Wilpar, you have a responsibility too now, guess it’s lucky you saw the hog so now you can ensure there’s food every night. Good luck.

Cats are greedy so & so’s, I think some of them just eat anything anywhere no matter if they’ve just been fed. I used to put food ours refused out for the magpies in the hope they’d leave the small birds alone & Frank would go out & eat it (yum, what’s this nice food that I just turned my nose up at in the house doing out here) straight after having a meal in the kitchen. He now finds it’s left in his dish until he eats it.

Look forward to further reports of both your hogs, Nic & Wilpar.
