I’m sure you all know the famously cute @darcytheflyinghedgehog. Inspired by all this cute hedgehog action – I made a trip to the pet store last Christmas and came home with Amelia.
It’s been so much fun working with her and trying to figure out this little creature. Here is a little record I made of our daily interaction:
7:00am – wake up. grouch around. eat.
8:30am – mom leaves. grouch around. sleep
3pm- mom comes home. eat. participate in mom’s art project. sleep
5pm- chill in kitchen while mom cooks. try everything on the counter( ginger, garlic, apple, coconut, rosemary..tablecloth)
10pm- race around the penn, escape the penn, explore under furniture. gets lured out by bacon treats.
11pm- gets put down for bed. act like a grouch. sleep
It’s great fun photographing her little face. I never knew that a hedgehog could have so much personality and so.much.sass.
I also got called out on the street last week as ” The girl with the porcupine.” Lol.
I leave you with these photos and hope they bring you as much joy as they do for me- No spikes attached.
