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 – rise and whine. grouch around. sleep.
8:30am– mom leaves. grouch around. sleep
4pm – 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)
5pm-10pm – sleep.
10pm – race around pen, escape pen, race under furniture. destroys carpet. comes out for vegetable treats
11pm – start to wake up. eat. the hedgehog day begins
It’s great fun photographing her little face. I never knew that a hedgehog could have so much personality and much sass.
Someone on the street recognized me last week as ” The girl with the porcupine.”
I leave you with these photos and hope they bring you as many laughs as they do for me – No spikes attached.
