    Here's the little guy. The picture isn't very good but he has a huge swelling on the side of the neck/face. I assume it's some kind of abcess, and I can't help him because the vets only deal with cats and dogs over here so they're likely to euthanize him (and I can't oppose since it's a wild animal).
    I fon't think he can ball up anymore, but he was strolling through the garden and ate dry cat food from my hand. I hope he's going to be allright...

    • 8 months ago

      If it is an abcess that's nothing you can't handle yourself. Restrain it, poke a shallow hole with a sterile needle and drain it, disinfect it, then give it a 3 day antibiotica course (ideally injectable, if you know a farmer, just take the pr bodyweight dose for any mammal, they're mostly the same, and you should probably confine it until the course is complete). Obviously I can't guarantee a perfect outcome, but this is probably what a vet would do, and I assure you mist vets will be just as inexperienced as you when it comes to treating an animal that small. Only thing you'd be missing is some ibuprofen or such, but I don't know anything about hedgehogs and wouldn't risk giving it anything.

        Not that you don't have a point, because you do, but

        >please make sure the local wildlife becomes dependent on humans and loses the ability to fend for itself

        is still correct. Encouraging wildlife to live closer to humans never ends well for them. Either they end up completely dependant on feeders, and well, what happens when that old sad dude dies? Or they end up getting hurt by a car or a rat trap or something.

        If you truly want to help wildlife thrive in this concrete, capitalist hellhole we've shoved the world in, you're better off donating money or food to (GOOD) sanctuaries or charities.

          I have petted them a little but they curl up so I assume they prefer that I don't.
          If she's in the right mood I can get the girl to take a treat from my hand but they definitely prefer to just not be disturbed, so I usually just watch them.

            While they tend to prefer being left alone, some of them become relaxed enough after a while. Some don't even curl up if I put them on their back (which I rarely do because it's rude) and keep eating while I'm sitting beside them, talking about my day.
            I've also tried a little experiment: I pick one up, bring him inside and put him next to food. He eats up and exits once he's finished. After doing this a couple of nights, I left the door open and he would clumsily get inside, find the food, and get back out. Fascinating little fellow.
