I’m a hedgehog, get me out of here

Here’s a post from the Drafts folder that was meant to go out in October:

hedgehoghands

This little guy looked much smaller than the other hedgehogs that frequent our garden, so I took him inside to weigh him to be on the safe side. He didn’t quite reach the 500 g German authorities feel is a good weight for hedgehogs to make it through the winter but as it was only mid-October and he was not far off, we decided to take him back outside and supply plenty of dry catfood and fruit for the next few weeks.

I do hope he found a cosy spot somewhere and is still snoring away through the unseasonably cold spring we’re having.
