You got that right. She was a character from a cartoon in the mid-80s called "The Get Along Gang".

Aww, I love hedgehogs. I have two now. My albino is the grumpy  one and the other is super hyper and friendly.

I had hedgehogs for years.  They're expensive, though--special food, special vet requirements, etc.  I can't really afford one now.  Sometime in the future I imagine I'll get another one, though.

This is Spirit, my last little hedgie.  She passed away a few years ago at the age of four.  :(

I had a ex-wild one for a while. As long as you get rid of their parasites, internal and external, they can make fine and interesting pets. It's a shame to see so many of them killed on the country roads around here.

I used to put hedgehog food out for the wild ones in the back garden.  For security, I put a lock insert into the back door lock.  I had a human visitor, though, and the key to the insert disappeared, so I can't open my back door.  From the look of things, I would have to pay to have the whole door replaced and I can't afford that.  I miss feeding and watching the hedgehogs.

Love 'em.  I used to put out special hedgehog food in the back garden.  I put an insert in the lock of the back door but then mislaid the special key, so I don't open the back door anymore, and no longer feed them.  Magpies ate most of what I put out, anyway.

One way of solving the problem is to uninstall the lock if you can still access the side of the door you installed it from. You can also pull the pins out of the hinges and gain full access to the lock. If none of these work, call a professional lock smith and if they can't remove it, they can drill it. At least you will save the cost of replacing the door with that approach.

Thank you, Dena.  I did try unscrewing the lock but the mechanism seemed to be too integrated with the door itself.  I even tried to saw through the insert.  I haven't tried pulling the pins out of the hinges yet, so that is worth looking into.  A neighbour also recently agreed with you that if necessary, the lock could be drilled so that so that I shouldn't have to replace the door, so that is good to know.

It will be nice to feed the hedgehogs and birds again.

When I get new keys, when ever possible I get duplicates made and store the original should the key I normally use get lost. I had to rekey the house so I ask for 8 original cut keys. This was because original cut keys work better than duplicates and as the machine was set up to cut original keys there was no problem making more. Yes original cut keys are more expensive but I really learned the lesson with my roommates car. It was a lease car before she bough it and she never received the original key. My key was about a third cut and I had to be careful with it in order to make it work. It ended up that my key was the primary key after the other key broke so I went to the dealer, got the key code then took it to a lock smith and had 4 original cut keys make. Should have done it years ago.

I'll do that, thanks.  Hedgehogs, here I come!
