Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Good news

Some happy news – the little sister of the two male orphans found earlier today has been found and reunited with her brothers.

She had been kept warm by her finder until we collected her, which helped her greatly. She was quite hungry, and took 1ml of formula straight away.

All three are now in an incubator, next to another two orphans. They are all close in weight and age, so we will put the five of them together tomorrow to make a nice big litter of hoglets.
