Lucky us

 
We moved into our house in May and a couple of nights after our move
my husband told me he saw a hedgehog in our garden.
 I was so excited about this so the next few nights I was on hedgehog watch,
but I never saw him.
I started to think Simon must have seen something else.
Maybe a cat?
 
Fast forward three months.
I go to the backdoor to let the cat in and who is eating out of the catbowl?
this little guy!
 
 
Yay, the elusive hedgehog does exist!!
We named him (or her) Harry.
 
But the fun doesn't end there.
 
Since then Harry has been coming every night to finish off the cat food
AND has also moved into our garden.
He used to come in through an opening under the garden fence but with the
free food presented he must have thought this an ideal place to stay.
His new address is under our garden shed!
 
He's quite a chubby little one and one night I thought he looked
a bit smaller.
Just me getting used to seeing him?
No.
 
 
We actually have TWO!!
Harry and Harriet.
 
I've been reading about how to best care for them and found out they are
actually endangered animals!
Guess we are very lucky to have two.
 
Linking up with these lovely ladies

I would have been afraid to touch him let alone pick him up, you're a brave girl. They sure are adorable!

too fun!! we have opossums and coons and skunks! A hedgehog would be cool, if you can pick them up and feed them. The critters around here are not so nice.
