Why not just put enough food for the cat & the hedgehogs. They are both delightful animal species deserving of our care.
We observe & care for wildlife to enhance our lives & reduce the stress of modern life. No point in getting irate about animals taking advantage of the opportunities that present themselves.
In our garden, with a river border, rats & foxes help themselves to the hedgehog’s food and the squirrels steal the food in the bird feeders.
We locate all feeding stations that are left out away from the house so that the less desirable animals don’t come indoors.
Hope this makes sense to everyone
