Lulu v Hedgehogs. Who will be the winner?

Today is doubly important. Firstly, and arguably most importantly, today is my 4th birthday! Hip hip hooray! But, spare a thought for my spiky friends, the hedgehogs, as it is National Hedgehog Day today. As it's both our special days, my latest blog is how to care for us both! I wonder who will be the highest maintenance... 
Happy Birthday to me!
