This Year's Model

IMG_2127

To our immense delight there has been, since some weeks back, at least one hedgehog lurking, pitter-pattering around here. He - she (possibly even "they") isn't as forthcoming, yet, in picture-posing as last year's model.

But totally adorable just the same, and very hungry. He - she is definitely a crunching slobber of fine cat food. And of course, he - she has a very nice little snuggery of a roadside hedgehog-restaurant on my property, it's our pleasure to serve wee prickly ones and protect their crunchy food from bad weather.

Welcome, welcome, mi casa es su casa, our cat food is yours, my dear Mr - Ms Hedgehog.

Settling the Mr-Ms issue (beyond reasonable doubt) would (no doubt) prove a painful exercise. Ouch! Behold exhibit 1.

Hedgehogs are fascinating and adorable animals, they look so soft and cuddly yet all that prickly stuff. Wee weirdos:)

I bet your cats aren't so keen!

The first time I saw a hedgehog in my garden was some years ago and at that time he/she had somehow manage to get inside the fence we have because of the cats. Loaf doggie didn't like it a bit and the poor thing was barked at in a ridiculously overwhelming way. Since then we managed to block his entrance into the actual garden and he/she has his own food bowl in the pathway just outside but still on my property.

The cats actually find the prickly creature on the other side of the fence quite fascinating! But in the actual garden, well, you're probably right, not so keen...:)
