Today I have a plan and I’ve actually known what I was going to use for the letter H since I started the Blogging A to Z Challenge. I can’t say that about many of the other letters. I’d better get started before this slips my mind, too. 😉
H is for Hedgehog!
I’m not really sure why I am so fascinated by hedgehogs. They’re spiny and from what I’m told they don’t smell very good if you have them as a pet. I just think they are so adorable.
I saw one in real life for the first time when we were at Colette’s birthday party in January. If you’ll look back at that post, you’ll see a photo of my first in person meeting with a hedgehog. That was when I learned that apparently they roam freely in London and there are actually provisions made in case one is injured…bring it to a veterinary hospital and it will be treated.
Since at the current time, I have no home critters to keep me company, I keep thinking about the possibility of a hedgehog. They’re small and I think pretty well-behaved. But Ralph says no pets right now. I keep thinking of bringing in a secret kitten and then saying something to the effect…”It must have gotten in the house on its own, Dear!” Yeah…that would work.
Until the time that I get to have another pet-a possible hedgehog, I’m comforting myself with these little guys.
They’re pretty darned cute and they keep me company, usually on the shelf above my computer, as I write each day. They don’t ask much more than an occasional dusting (a shaking, really…) and they like looking at me almost as I like looking at them.
Be sure to follow the link to the Blogging A to Z Challenge and read some of the other interesting blogs. I’ll just bet that there’s another hedgehog in there somewhere!
