new young carer!

Post  Johog on Tue Nov 25, 2008 6:25 am

my nine yr old daughter has asked me if she can look after one of the hogs in her room. so after much consideration i've decided she can look after lola,who just pretty much needs feeding up and i will be monitoring her progress. she also wants proper care sheets etc and shes going to keep a diary, shes also going to take it in to school(the diary) so she can educate her class on hogs Grin

That is great to hear, all these young people like me getting involved Cool
I first started watching them when I was 4, then when I was 11 or so I started taking them in. Was hard to talk my mum and dad round to letting them into the house, but now they are very supportive. It's great, because I'm going to get a big hutch or cage for the Hedgehogs I take in my Christmas.
It is important that we educate the young people, because we are the next generation, and we need to look after this beautiful world that we can some times take for granted.

Wonderful to hear about people pitching in, and helping out. Grin
