    So glad both Hetti and Cutie are ok

    I do feel for you, as I had a terrible day today, as Sparkle, who has been sleeping in the hedgehog house for 2 weeks (might be 3 now) went missing last night as the home was empty. So worried that a fox had got to her – as I have 3 foxes now, that the camera has picked up, and the bigger one, comes each night. (I think the other two might be overgrown cubs).

    And it’s a constant worry, especially as the number of hedgehogs that visited over the summer has reduced greatly, I think it’s just two or three females (perhaps 4) now – all the males have gone (Huffy and Klepto).

    I’ve just checked the tunnel of the home, and Sparkle is lying in the tunnel. So I feel relieved much like you seeing Cutie and Hetti back safe again.

    I’ve resorted to weeing in a glass vase twice a day, and then sprinkling that around my garden (where the foxes hang out) to deter them, and surprisingly it’s seems to be working. Just hope the neighbours don’t catch me doing that.
