Goodbye, lil’ buddy

I’ve just learned that the "Most Famous Moist Nosicle on the InterWebs", Numo the hedgehog, has passed away.

Baroooo! [Crying sound] His quills quivered for the last time on August 3, 2007. Read more about Numo’s tube-chasing, wheel-turning, quilt snorgling life here, at LooseTooth.com. :(

Let’s also not forget that Numo’s owners also brought us the best photo of the hamster T evar. ;)

Check out kitteh "Jameson" Yes, named for Jameson’s Irish whiskey—isn’t that obvy? His eyes are half-mast, aren’t they?
Jameson is all "Whatevs—it’s just a hedge. Where my boxes at?!")

And a close up of Tiddlywinkle, who is all balled up (to protect her moistest of nosicles)

Rockin’, Laura H., and hilariously adorable.

Ladies, the secret to a moist, moist nosicle

Ladies, everyone knows us Hedgelettes have the moistest nosicles around. Our secret? Simple. Japanese Cherry Blossom creams. [waves dainty paw over bottle label]Springtime freshness. For your schnozzle, in a bottle™ [giggles]

Apply a hedge-paw-sized dollop every morning, and YOU TOO could appear on C.O.

Human Head Cloned From Hedgehogs!

OK, no.  Not really.  But I just spotted this story on the Christian Science Monitor yesterday, belatedly.  The dude’s an Englishman by the name of Les Stocker, wildlife rehabilitator & photographer strawdinaire, and as you can see, he’s made ENTIRELY OF HEDGEHOGS.  Not really.  Well actually, yes he is.  Because otherwise it’d be like cuddling sea urchins, eh?  So he must be.

Its_good_ere_ent_it_1From the article text:

"Inside row upon row of rolled-up pastel towels, small, thorny creatures are snoozing. It’s mid-morning after all, and hedgehogs simply do not like to rise before dusk.            

"This isn’t a hedgehog spa, nor a fantastical Beatrix Potter tale. This is St. Tiggywinkles – a wildlife hospital. It’s where 500 hedgehogs are served meals in bed every day in the hope they’ll put on enough weight to survive the winter.

"It is also a place with a royal stink."
