The boys are back!

Yes, the mayhem has started and once again we have a bunch of prickly thugs patrolling the patio (thank goodness!) I had feared for their safety after they all disappeared early last year, especially with those damn A24 hedgehog traps still on the market. Sorry to keep harping on, but please sign the BHPS petition if you haven’t already done so, we need to get to the 100.000 mark if we are to stand any chance of having them withdrawn from sale.

Where was I…oh yes, the loutish behaviour on the patio. I don’t know if it is down to all those kitten biscuits they keep munching their way through, but the hogs seem to be getting larger. The terracotta hedgehog house which has adorned the patio for the last three years and provided a cat proof shelter and a safe haven for the smaller hogs, is now proving to be a bit of a health and safety issue. This year’s males seem determined to cram themselves inside regardless, with the result that it has become more of a mobile home! Last night’s antics were so manic that I am surprised that it has remained in one piece. So, I am now off to try and pin it down between two plant pots before it vanishes altogether or crumbles into a heap!
