Scratch that itch

This little video of Dougie having a scratch while his box is being cleaned out might cheer you up. He doesn’t have fleas, he is scratching to remove old quills (you can see some come out in the video). Hedgehogs get quit itchy while they are quilling.

Dougie is with one of our volunteers, Rhea, who is fostering him for us.
