St Tiggywinkle’s Outpost
Playing outside recently, Opal and Agathe came across a lonely and bewildered wee hedgehog under the apple tree.
The girls were on the way back inside….
…when they noticed they were being followed!
They weren’t quite sure what to do with it – they’ve heard of people putting out bread and milk for hedgehogs, but they also heard it isn’t good for them.
So they checked the St Tiggywinkle’s website to see what to do with a lonely hungry hedgepig far, far away from her natural habitat (Click on their name to get to the St Tiggy’s website).
This hedgie is luckily not poorly or injured, she just doesn’t know how to fend for herself. Wild animals that have been habituated to human companionship are helpless when they are abandoned. The St Tiggy’s website suggested cat food, which fortunately the Quimper Hittys have a good supply of…
…and though the Quimper Hitty cat was very skeptical at first, it looks like they’ll be friends.
