Orphaned hedgehogs adopt cleaning brush as their motheron January 5, 2008 at 11:57 pm
Animals are like people, they have feelings, they need affection, they feel pain, they need to feel loved, that was happened to these four orphaned hedgehogs, they thought that the cleaning brush was 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.
