Tracy picked up this spikey bundle of cuteness from Boscombe earlier today, a lady heard what she thought was a bird in distress and went outside to see this little guy surrounded by cats.

The homeowner picked up the hog and put it in a box with a dish of water and some cat food, and gave us a call.
