Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings first hog of 2018 Reply To: first hog of 2018


Hey Wildlifehaven, I spoke to the carer I have and she said the same about the spine thing. Trouble is I would have to dig into its nest as it’s in a cardboard box inside the hoghouse and I don’t want to disturb the nest in case I wake hoggie up too early. Sounds a bit mad but I’ve had the hoghouse in situ for about 7 years and only this year, after putting a cardboard box inside, have I had any takers. It seems they like to snuggle into smallish spaces (or this one does). So I will just have to wait and see if the hog wakes up or not. I do check to see if there’s been any movement but I have mice going in and out all the time (I have seen them on many occasions (they live under my neighbours shed).
