Hedgehog Thursday: A dainty centerpiece

First, Hedges have the most anerable dainty paws. As if they could not get any daintier, this one is sporting some flower hat action. AND she’s an albino. HELLO!

SUPER HEDGE THURSDAY comin’ atcha, People. Thanks Lily L., and Ikegami for the great pic.

Pan-go-wha!?

Apparently, there is a NEW ANIMAL we never even heard of until sender-inner Amanda J. alerted us. The Chinese "Pangolin"! I mean, what the heck, People!? He’s like a scaley hedgehog.

Can’t come to work today, I’m quilling

At first, "Monty" the hedger wasn’t so photogenic, he was "really grumpy from quilling." However, he soon began exhibiting typical behedgevior shown below, namely hanging in a toilet paper tube, (the natural habitat for all hedgehogs.)

Next stop, it’s Curled Pawsville! [train whistle]

"Hularious", I’m gonna call in sick with that one to the office…

Let’s check in on Numo…

Hey! It’s our FAVE moist nosicle ‘Numo’ admiring himself on the InterWebs (as he should!)

At least that’s what he’s up to when he’s not "tubing".

Many thanks to the find folks over at Loosetooth, Numo’s site. And thanks for the reminder, E2C!

Mo’ hedges, mo’ problems

Ruhmember when the world ignited on fire after we posted the Hedgehog swimming in the bathtub photo? I do—it was a powerful, powerful moment. Well, I thought it was time to check in on lil’ Bam-Bam the Hedge and see what was happeningk.

Dear Mr. Frank Ahrens,
A thousand thanks for your glowing review of Cute Overload in today’s Washington Post. What a nice surprise. Since your favorite part of the site is the Hedgehog category, I post thees Hedgehog in your honor. And he’s not just any Hedger—it’s Numo, perhaps the most famous moist nosicle on the InterWebs.

Numo

Sincerely Yours,
Meg

“A Hedgehog Wearing a Flower.”

That’s the name of this submission. Of course it is. Perfect!

Iraqi Hedge

Cuteness is worldwide, as you know, and here’s proof. "Specialist C." writes:

"While I was overseas in Iraq, my commander Captain H. found a wild hedgehog being threatened by a python of some sort. Being the kind-hearted man he was, he rescued the poor little bugger, and
brought him to my office so we could release him into our marginally safer area of post (we had a strict policy against snakes in that AO).

Enjoy! I love your site. When the days in the Army get too dark, I open up Cute Overload and get my leavening of sweetness. Thanks!"

No, thank you, Specialist C.!

HedgeSpa

Dahlings, There is no better way to start the week than with a few spa treatments. First, get your quills moisturized. Twice. They bring out your beady eyes.

Second, your dainty paws could use an apricot scrub and peppermint oil massage. Those paws are tiny, and you carry the weight of the Cute World on them. They must be refreshed!

Lastly, and most importantly, I recommend BeautyHedge nose cream, for a supple, come-hither schnozzle. Try it, Dahlings!

"Tommy, say hello to Winston. Let’s be nice. Winston’s a prickly fellow at first, but his beady eyes are just the same as yours."

[My friend’s Dad used to hiss "LBN!!!" to his fighting daughters growing up. They did not have beady eyes, BTW.]
