baby animal alert!






i found this adorable little hedgehog toddling around in the garden this evening. i'd been hoping to catch a glimpse of a baby one all summer, but hadn't seen one 'til today. she may very well be the cutest thing i've ever seen. and yes, i gave her a rather big pile of cat food. we've got to fatten her up and make sure she can make it through the winter.

This made me soooo homesick.

We used to have a small family of hedgehogs in the garden every summer and our poor border collie would try to round them up like little sheep which only made them roll up into little balls.

That is the cutest thing!

Totally deep thought....Squeeeee! (or Awwwwww). As a kid I had a stuffed Steiff hedgehog and have loved them ever since, but have never had one in the garden! How fortunate to catch such lovely photos of it...

I think you live in a zoo. Also, I admire that you set out food for her. I need to be more respectful of animals. A raccoon ran thru my yard the other night and I freaked out as if it was a huge ostrich. Do you still have that chicken coop?
