One of Amethyst House's newest and youngest residents did a bit of exploring recently.
A baby hedgehog who recently made Amethyst House Care Home in Doncaster his home decided to try and help out the staff whilst they were clearing the garden last week. The hoglet was very inquisitive but kept having to be put back near his nest to save any unwanted injuries.
Katie Wilson, Home Manager, said: "It was lovely seeing the little hoglet helping us when we were clearing the garden - he's certainly grown since we last saw the family. We've been feeding them corned beef along with some roast beef on Sunday's as a special treat!
"Lewis, our Administrator's son, was digging up bugs and grubs to give the hoglet and his siblings - they're definitely very spoilt and a wonderful addition to our family here at Amethyst."
