The Hedgehogs’ Diaries - January 9, 2014
Thelma went missing for three days recently. We think she was disturbed by something , perhaps a visiting dog or violent winds, during the night of 28th or 29th December. Thanks to everyone who went looking for her – we knew she was still around because she was eating two saucers of food each evening. Then 3 days later she reappeared in Louise’s house, clearly very frightened. Nothing would persuade her back into her own house. It’s a tight squeeze, but we decided to leave her with the hibernating Louise until she calms down. On Saturday night there were signs that she had visited her own house and even spent some time there rebuilding her nest. We changed hay in both houses yesterday, when we took this picture of Thelma.
