One evening as we were leaving we could hear rustling and snuffling down the path to the edge of the top of the stairs. We thought it might be a fox… Or rat? So we tip toed closer to the sound and lo and behold: two good sized hedgehogs.
Now we know why they’re ‘hogs’ ..’cause they sure snuffle a lot. Very cute!
We nicknamed them Hercule and Hermione.
And now make sure to leave clean shallow dishes of water on the ground, and leave the occasional fallen raspberry in case they wander through.
