Decked out in festive party hats, they’re all keeping cool by hanging out in the pool, playing games, and feasting on teeny-tiny veggie burgers, vegetable kebabs, and corn on the cob. Their enthusiastic human host even sets off some animal-friendly fireworks for them.
SIGNAL BOOST: looking for anyone in Iran, or with family / friends / connections in
the country (either around Tehran or near the border with Iraq) who is
experienced with wild (long-eared) hedgehog rescue / rehab / release. This little guy needs some help!
It’s very hot here in the Netherlands right now, about 33
°C. Hedgehogs need warm teperatures, but this is a little bit too hot, even for them. So, I try to help her keep cool. During the day she is downstairs in a cool corner of the living room, instead of at the attic where it’s extremely hot during the day. I also made a cold spot in her cage for her to lay on if she gets hot. She can go and lay down on some linoleum with is cooler than a fleece blanket. Kiwi seems to be coping very well right now :)
