I have one in my garden that we feed with cat food. It also has a regular habit of coming in through our cat flap and helping itself to the cat's food indoors. It then makes its way in to the lounge if it can to sleep under the sofa! We then have to extract it and put it back outside. Henry, as it is known hibernated last winter in our garden as looks a good size to hibernate again this year however he it still feeding regularly every evening but I think it won't be long if the temperatures stay low for any length of time.
We also spotted a baby in our front garden earlier this week but haven't seen it since.
