I lived in Burley and had built my nest in a lovely hedgehog house in someone?s garden where I had two baby hoglets, Yarrow and Dandelion. I started to feel poorly, and the garden owners spotted me in the daytime and took me and my babies to Prickly Pigs Hedgehog Rescue. There I was looked after until I was feeling better and when I was, I went back to live in the garden in Burley.

A baby hedgehog is called a hoglet. Every year we have to hand rear lots of orphaned hoglets and we feed them special formula. If you would like to giftt some to us then please go to our website and find our Amazon Wishlist.
