you shouldn’t take in a wild animal unless it seems to be in peril, it’s best to leave it alone, though I know they’re cute. You can build a hedgehog box to give it a place to hibernate in the winter, there are plenty of how-tos online. You can also leave out cat food and water in a shallow dish. It can also be helpful if you live in an area with wild hedgehogs to cut a small hole in your fence, and encourage others to do the same, as this creates a ‘hedgehog highway’ and gives them more gardens to search for food.
