WATCH: Cats look on as hedgehog eats their food

One of our readers has sent us in a wonderful photo of their cats watching a hedgehog eat some of their food before walking off.

The reader, who lives in Mullingar, said that they see hedgehogs in the garden regularly, but have never seen one come up and eat some of their cats' food when the cats are there.

While the video shows the hedgehog leaving, she says that it was there for at least 30 seconds before it headed off at an impressive speed.

She added that the cats looked as surprised as she and her partner were by the actions of the hungry hedgehog.
