A hedgehog story

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.
