    Highlight of my otherwise pretty noneventful week here!!

    Yesterday I looked out of the window to see a little hedgehog sunning itself on the patio! Needless to say I got totally overexcited :rolleyes: and took some pics...and thought no more of it.

    Then this afternoon hedgepig appeared again! Snuffled around the garden for a bit and wasn't at all scared when I cam eout with a saucer of milk for it and slurped it all down, before spending another 2 hours pottering, snoozing and catching some rays!

    I'm hoping it's going to adopt us - but I need to know what hedgepigs eat!!!

    All ideas gratefully received!

    Beaker was all for getting the most expensive dog food going......mutter mutter!

    And what shall I call my new friend the hedgepig - I think it's a little boy hedgepig but I haven't got close enough to check...

    He didn't roll into a ball when I took him his milk though!

    Well actually we were awoken in the middle of the night by "snffling" sounds and we eventually discovered two of our spiky friends (presumably one male and one female) in the back garden. One was standing still (female playing hard to get possibly) while the other was walking around and around it (male trying his luck).

    We left them to it, and in the morning they had gone, but where they were was a circular patch in the lawn worn right down to mud. That poor male must've walked miles round and round in circles.

    Now I think of it - male goes round in circles after female and gets nowhere. Hedgehogs are just like us really....;)

    Oh and I vote for "roadkill" :rolleyes:

    Awwww! when we were little girlies we used to have a hedgehog who lived in the orchard. She was called Mrs Tiggywinkle I think and from what I remember cat food was the dish of the day!

    When I was very small I can remember being woken in the night to go and see an entire family of hedgehogs playing in our garden. Y'know, if I wasn't a badger I think I might have to be a hedgehog. They are soooo sweet.

    Sonic is far too obvious, how about Hogwart?

    Don't give hedgehogs cows milk, but they can have goats milk or cat milk (as in milk for cats not cats milk...) and don't give them cat or dog food in gravy cos they get ill.
    I need to get out more...
