Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This chubby hedgehog managed to climb the 6 inches up onto the deck to get the food. There were some bricks to make it easier but no, it climbed up with its bag legs dangling.
There was another small one in the front garden so I picked it up and made it a bed for the night. There vets only do emergencies on a Saturday so I phoned Whitby Wildlife Rescue.
This little one weighed 390g.
The lady in Whitby said it should be OK as there is still 4-6 weeks of fattening up time left so to let it rest through the day and put it out tonight.
I mentioned the little one and she said the vets had delivered it to them and it was now 200g. She said it was not the smallest they've had - that one was 90g!!!
She said Filey vets are really good with rescued animals; they will keep and look after them until a volunteer can collect or deliver to the sanctuary. How wonderful as she said some vets just wouldn't bother.
I put the one out tonight. It waited a few minutes at which time another tiny one appeared. So I will keep an eye out for that one and also the released one just to make sure they are putting on weight.
Life is never dull! It'll give me something to do now we are going into lockdown for another month...

I'll stick with a good piece of steak for my protein, thank you LOL!

Impie

LOL, Bren, though that's not what the hedgehog thinks of slugs and wurms....they just love it and it's full of proteins! :))

'Egelopvang' - what a wonderful word!
Most of our sanctuaries are run by wonderful volunteers, such wonderful people. There were two on the back lawn and two on the front lawn tonight. I didn't see the teeny tiny one but I think it could have been the 390g one and it had managed to get inside the 'cage' I have to stop the big birds taking all the bird feed. So I helped it out by removing the cage and off it ran after the other one.
I put cat food down for them too. They can eat the meat based but not the fish based food. Certainly better than a slug!

Cute photo, Bren. It's so good of you to care and take care of them. In The Hague we have a special 'Egelopvang' (Hedgehog sanctuary) where you can take sick hedgehogs to and they'll take care of them and release them again when they're big enough and recovered! It's run by volonteers!
My best friend also has a hedgehog in her garden and she puts out cat food and watrer for him/her!

Sounds like you have a real life rescue going on there. Well done!

Great work Bren, and yes, it makes lockdown less dull. I'm glad you take such good care for these animals. ♥♥♥
PS, I loved the photo. ♥

Hallo Leni
Ich bin so froh, dass du auch Igel hattest. Sie sind etwas ganz Besonderes und wir müssen ihnen helfen. Ich liebe die Kleinen. Ich bin so glücklich, sie in meinem Garten zu haben. Ich habe jetzt zwei Igelhäuser für den Winter

Hi Irene - I am learning more and more every day. I didn't realise how special they are - the only downside is the poop! I know they are safely tucked away for the winter when it disappears and know they are back when the poop appears again LOL. I don't buy the expensive Hedgehog food. They get all the nourishment they need from kitten or puppy munchies so I buy a huge 12kg bag of Harringtons puppy munchies and they are fine.

Oh Pat - we are all sick of this. It has ruined our lives. I read comments on social media criticising the government - not just ours but all over, but no one knows enough about it. My neighbour was diagnosed with C-19 23 weeks ago. He is no longer contagious but he has been back to the hospital twice since e, the last only last week and he still feels unwell. He could feel it moving to every organ. His blood pressure was up to 185/135. He still has severe pains in his chest and lungs. He is fit and only 43 years old and no underlying health issues. What a mess.
No one comes knocking on my door - too scary for them!
Ah but Jean, you have skunks which we don't - thank goodness ;o)

Stay with it, Pat...and stay safe...perhaps you'll get a lollipop when you go for your vaccination! ;DDD

We don't have these little creatures in the Americas. I think they're really cute.

jeanbean14

Pat - lol! What you said about wearing a mask and never getting candy.

Jumble

Bren, you are so very kind, you know exactly what to do with all these animals that come knocking on your door.

I went to your section of puzzles and read your introductory section. I am glad that you have so many pets to enjoy--I can't imagine our lives without them!
You're getting ready for a lockdown--it appears that coronavirus cases are escalating all over the world, now that we're all trapped indoors. I think that some people are so tired of taking precautions these 7-8 months that they're getting careless. Vaccines should be available to the general population in 3-4 months--first responders, people in group living (nursing homes, prisons, etc.) and those with serious medical conditions will receive them first. Then, we Seniors will be next! I CAN HARDLY WAIT!
Today is Halloween with Trick-or Treating in the United States. I told someone that I have been wearing a mask for 7 months and no one has ever offered me candy!
Take care.

Hee hee! So cute! I'm glad you're keeping a look out. Wish we had these in our garden... Anna's hummingbirds stay over winter here so my project is making sure the feeders are filled and keeping my fingers crossed that ALL will get their fill. We had one last winter that we called The Red Baron as the sky above our feeders...plus the feeders... belonged to him! Fortunately, in the really freezing 4-5 days we had the others did manage to sneak some sips from the smaller feeder. Unfortunately, that one doesn't have a heater and I was bringing it in every hour to melt the slush. One little one was so desperate that as I was stepping through the door it landed on the feeder in my hand and I stayed frozen 'til it had it's fill...I feel blessed to be brushed by a hummingbird wing. Just hope we don't have any weather like that this winter.
