Sonic Boom – 14 Hedgehogs in the Hebrides!

Sonic Boom - 14 Hedgehogs in the Hebrides

After a round trip of over 900 hundred miles, from the picturesque Yorkshire moors to the windswept moors of the Isle of Lewis, my instant hedgehog family and breeding herd has arrived safely! We are now the proud owners of not one, not two, but fourteen African Pygmy Hedgehogs!

I have no dining room left. It has been transformed into a “Hog Heaven” with cages, thermostatically controlled climate and even a hedgehog playpark in the form of a paddling pool. (No water – of course! Although hedgehogs do enjoy a bath from time to time!)

However, we are thoroughly enjoying getting to know our new charges – they are the cutest, prickliest little customers and are utterly fascinating to observe as they tentatively explore their new home.

Above is a picture of, yes, you guessed it – “Sonic” – named by our son Harris, age 4.

    The cutest little creature, and such a good home! Delighted that you all survived the trip…………and enjoy getting to know the hedgehogs.
    Are they easy to look after?

      Thanks Janice! Yes they are easy to look after – but 14 cages to clean out is a huge task!!! I’ve done two so far today – Saturday is full clean out day! I’m still recovering from the trip…hope you’re having a relaxing break! Anne x
