    Hi everybody. I sometimes leave a wildlife camera on over night and when I checked this morning two different cats had visited and helped themselves to some of the food. at least one of the cats lies in wait during the day and hass decimated the pigeons that come to feed.
    any ideas on how to ‘cat proof’ the hedgehog food? Don’t want to spend a fortune on a fancy feeding station but there must be w ==a way to keep them off!


    Hi have had the same problem, but i get no cats eating the food now, i bought a cheap plastic storage box cut an hole in one side and put a couple of bricks in front of it , leaving enough space for hog to get in and works brill. I have a trail camera on it and the cats cannot get to the food at all good luck


    Hello, same as Sue. Concrete or bricks in front of the entrance (13cm away) and weighted on top.
