    I have just read a thread entitled 'Drumming' about a silly pheasant and rather than hi-jack that thread I thought I would start my own! The other day I took a walk in the woods with my little dog, ahead of me I was aware of some erratic movement in the grass. I stood still, thought it might be a chick out of a nest. But the movement was erratic and accompanied by squeaks. Dog went to investigate and to her surprise a baby hedgehog no bigger than a mouse came running towards her! The squeaks got louder, dog ran behind me for safety! Hedgehog kept coming and discovered my shoe ( Still attached to my foot ) and started licking it and positively squealing with delight!! I assume it was lost and thought it had found 'Mum'. As always when odd things happen I had no camera with me!! Bill.

    It was in trouble and probably the mother had been killed.
    If you can, go back and see if you can find it - there are hedgehog rescue places that will feed a youngster until it's able to fend for itself.
    Take gloves and a strong box and watch out for the monster fleas.
    If they have no teeth you must get it to a specialist centre - no good giving it cat or dog food as it need a special milk susbstitute.

    Just to add a PS to that advice, never ever feed hedgehogs cows milk of any description!
