I am hand feeding two baby hedgehogs – about the size of your fist and all kitteny and wobbly. They are clearly orphaned, and tending to wander about in one patch of garden beside the house, where they have made lots of little tunnels and runways through the bushes. They curl up and nap in sunny spots on our paths. They were so starved that when I started waving food under their noses one tried to climb onto my knee. They’re becoming ever friendlier and stronger now they’re getting food. They must be a week or two old and neither are any larger than a tennis ball. Here are some pictures so that you can all have baby hedgehog squee.

This hedgehog is up on his hind paws washing his face like a cat. I guess it needed doing. :)

This is a third hedgehog that came along a little later. I like the peek of ears and the scale of things in this picture of him wandering up a hedgehog highway.

Waking up slowly…

Fast asleep in a nest of leaves.

Hedgehog gets something up his nose (sand I think) and wrinkles it…

Hedgehog sneezes!!!
