Fakey Friday, Hedgie Babies Brushy Momma

These orphaned hedgehogs snuggle up to thier adoptive brush mother

Thank you Metafilter for posting a link to this story from back in August. There is something sad but also sweet that babies found some comfort even in a fake brush momma.. better than no momma!

Orphaned hedgehogs adopt cleaning brush as their mother

Four tiny orpahned hedgehogs are snuggling up to the bristles of a cleaning brush - because they think it's their mother.
The four inch long creatures are being hand-reared by staff at the New Forest Otter, Owl and Wildlife Park in Ashurst, Hants.

Workers say Mary, Mungo, Midge and Slappy get comfort from playing with the centre's cleaning brush and enjoy rubbing against it.

The smells on the brush, which is used to sweep a yard, remind the hedgehogs of their natural habitat while the texture reminds them of their mother.

Manager John Crooks, 41, said: "They are a bit like human babies - they need activities to keep them busy.

"Because they have very poor eyesight you have to appeal to their sense of smell and touch by giving them different scents and textures.

"They like natural scents and have enjoyed playing with our cleaning brushes, soil, leaves, flower pots and the like.

"They particularly seem to enjoy rubbing against the brush.

"It may sound odd but I imagine the bristles feel a bit like their mum."

Tiny: Two of the little hedgehogs

He added: "Three of the hedgehogs came to us because their mum was sadly crushed by a council palette truck at one of their depots.

"They are only a couple of weeks old.

"The fourth one is a little bit older and was found wandering around a back garden in the middle of the day.

"The home owner left it alone for a while to see if it would find its mum but after a few hours it was still by itself so she brought it into to us."

The hedgehogs will be fed until they are full-sized and then they will be released back into the wild.

John said: "We are feeding them milk powder mixed with kitten food - but they don't like fish flavour - they prefer nice meaty chunks.

"When they get older they will move onto proper cat food and will occasionally be given slugs and snails as a treat.

"There has been a real surge in slugs this year because of the wet weather so hopefully that will mean a good year for hedgehogs too.

"I would urge people not to kill garden slugs with pellets because the poison will be passed on to hedgehogs and a build up of poison could be fatal.

Playtime: The baby hedgehogs enjoy themselves with their 'mother'

"If the weather is good they could be released in a month or so, otherwise we will feed them over the winter so they do not hibernate and then relase them in spring."

He added: "They are quite a handful and each has their own character.

"One is quite snappy and another fairly sleepy."

Smoky Comes Home After 3 Months Lost!

Wow... what an amazing thing to be reunited! Thanks Rick for showing me this story!

Smoky the cat found more than 3 months after Wisconsin tornado

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) -- More than three months after disappearing during a tornado, Smoky the cat has been reunited with his owner.

Smoky was last seen June 7, before a tornado destroyed Wanda Ploeger's mobile home in rural Riverview, Wisconsin, scattering her belongings.

Ploeger was at work that evening and couldn't find her kitty when she returned.

Ploeger, who has been staying with her ex-husband, said she knew Smoky was out there somewhere. She'd go out late at night to look for Smoky because that's when he liked to go out, she said.

"I kept telling my sister I never got a feeling about him," she said. "With other animals I'd always get a feeling. ... I always thought he'd come back."

And he did.

While driving about 21/2 miles from where her trailer used to be on September 15, Ploeger saw a white streak and asked the driver to stop the truck along the highway.

The cat had gone over the hill so she crouched on the hill and called until it came to her.

Smoky dropped about three pounds and is now seven pounds. He also is taking antibiotics for an abscess, which he might have suffered while fighting, Ploeger said.

Ploeger said she plans to buy another mobile home and put it in the same place.

"It wouldn't be the same without him here," she said.
