hedgehog 2011

number one hedgehog 2011

This evening we spotted the first hedgehog at Hedgehog DropInn, or rather, GardenInn. Because as mysteriously as last year, the hedgie appeared, a well-fed one, on the inside of fenced-in garden. With one  loaf dog bouncing up and down barking (like last year).

As hedgehog, loaf dog, cats and a few humans on a limited garden area is a bad thing we managed to trick him (?)with a trail of cat food, to venture out into the usual Inn area. He (?) continued to munch away there. Hopefully there isn't a hedgehog family living inside garden, will have to keep an eye out for that. Another hopeis that Number One Hedgehog 2011 will be back for more munchies. And bring friends.

M built such a nice little weather sheltered eating area for them last year, never got around to paint it as planned. Will do, once hand allows again. Thinking applegreen would be a nice colour for the fancy Hedgehog Drop Inn of 2011.

I'd love to have a hedgehog family in my little garden (I don't even know if hedgehogs live in our area), but I rather suspect that any hedgehogs wouldn't appreciate the attentions of the fur "kids." :-)

Green eyes of jealousy. No hedgepigs here. Sigh.

Oh - he's adorable! Or she. Would hate to give her a complex... ;-)

I had two of them (African Pygmy Hedgehogs) as pets here in the states.

I would love to see one in the wild!
