Giant Herefordshire Hedgehog forced to diet.

Some kind soul sent me this article describing how a porky ‘hog had some gorged himself to three times the normal size for spiky roadkill. Because this particular fat boy lives out his days stealing cat food at a sanctuary near Ross-on-Wye, the sender assumed that it must be me.

Stop laughing. It’s not me, ok.

On reading the article I find “Maureen Webb, who runs the centre, said she was fed a normal amount of cat food but had been “growing and growing” and that “the hedgehog, which weighs the same as a small cat, was named after its “stroppy nature“.”

So I can see how my reader could have been easily confused.

I’m off for a ryvita lunch and a conference call with my legal team.
