H is for Hedgehog

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!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Hedgehogs are so cute! Much cuter than echidnas.

  2. your photo with the hedgehogs in the computer is super cute, fran!
    to my mind, stuffed animals are the ideal pets (i guess i am with ralph on this one?!).
    have a great day! glad “h” was so easy for you!!

  3. Oh hedgehogs are so cute! I hope you get your pet one day 🙂

  4. I had a friend who had two pet hedgehogs – seriously! They were very cute. They don’t stick, at least hers didn’t, but they are a bit prickly to cuddle with.

  5. Cute photo. All of the stuffed animals at my house are chewed up because if they didn’t originally belong to one of the dogs, they ended up that way! There is at least one hedgehog around here someplace…
