Just a quick Saturday post!We have a visitor!


Hi everybody just a quick post this Saturday to tell you that we have a visitor in Speedy's garden.Which is exciting to say the least.
We have a Hedgehog staying in the garden in Speedy's shelter hut so we have filled it hay and some old furry slippers cut open as they like furry stuff and put a front door panel too,he or she sleeps a lot but does eat some of the food we put down,I say eats some of the food as a black cat seems to found away into the garden from next door through hubby's mums garden and keeps stealing it so we are going to do something about that today as I don't want any cats coming into the garden.Just when I thought we had finished cat proofing and we find a weak spot.Well we'll put a stop to that,we have to keep Speedy safe and the Hedgehog safe too.
We'll keep you posted !

    1. he's not Hibernation yet as he goes out in the garden for a nose about at night but not for long as its gone cold and wet but not too cold and is still feeding but it won't be much longer,Hubby saved him from being run over and brought him home but if he wants leave he can but he seems to like it here plenty of food and somewhere dry and cosey to sleep I supose

    1. He doesn't seem to be bothered he never uses the shelter any way Speedy goes in and out of the shed for shelter,he hears the hedgehog moving about sometimes in his nest because he goes other to listen but thats all and now the weather is rubish Speedy stays inside more now

  3. Awwww. A hedgepiggy! Whee had a couple of those in our garden in the Summer when Mummy had chopped up lots of bushes and left the trimmings in a big pile. She was so worried about disturbing them whee had the trimmings there all Summer until the hedgehogs moved on. Have you named it? Mummy called our two Oliver Twist (because he always seemed to want more food!) and Rumple (because his spines looked crinkly and stuck up all over the place!)
