In the beginning was the hedgehog.







I came upon him one morning. He was eating the cats' food.







Cats that couldn't care less...



A hedgehog outside in

daylight... there must be

a problem.

Immediately I called the Sanctuaire des Hérissons.


The small creature is in great danger !

I must absolutely get him inside.


A pet carrier from zooplus.



You bring out the pet carrier and they disappear.



Hedgehogs aren't different from cats.





Hope my hedghehog hibernates and will come back, safe and sound, in spring.


Zooplus, the cats' favorite online shop


Berlingot's review :

As any cat worthy of the name, I don’t admit just anyone in my home. In fact, my favorite visitor is the delivery man. And for good reason : parcels are often filled with treats, toys, delicious food pouches and they even occasionally contain delightful surprises such as a radiator bed or a cat flap.


A christmas gift for your dog ? Why not ?

Being an absolute pet lover, I don't miss an opportunity to celebrate their presence in my life by sharing with them every precious moment of complicity.



A large choice, non censured reviews. You can even donate your ReddemZooplus Points to an animal shelter. There are lots of reasons to shop on Zooplus.

Nestled in their cushion, the receipients of these shopping sprees totally approve and they even ask for more !


Ernest recommends the "Sanctuaire des Hérissons"

Ernest thought he would live a happy life in this orchard. But then, there has been this hellish din and blades gouged his flesh.

Some kind soul brought him to the "Refuge du hérisson" where he was well taken care of but, as he's been seriously maimed, he stayed there and became its mascot.

Ernest has a good life now, but his jaw injury made him camera-shy. His friend Obelix kindly accepted to replace him. She has been burnt on half her body and taken care of by “Le Sanctuaire des Hérissons” which pic is courtesy of.

Lucky for Ernest and the other hedgehogs, specialized shelters now take care of them. Many thanks to all those devoted people!

The ultimate form of compassion : helping while expecting nothing else than the contentment to rescue the humblest and most disregarded creatures.

A mine of information

Nice and devoted volunteers.



Saucisse, a blind hedgehog was rescued by the sanctuary.


She's all right now and was even able to take her bearings in her new home.

For sale,  to support the sanctuary.


An attractive and informative FB page for a moving immersion in the daily life of the sanctuary.





So cute balls of spikes.

Hibernation starts in October. Vulnerable hedgehogs are in danger. Advice is given in post dated November the 8th.
