It is Hedgehog Awareness Week but at the Hedgehog Manor every week is Hedgehog Awareness Week. I am aware that she needs fresh water when I am running late for work and that she must have playtime no matter how tired I am. I am aware that it is frustrating to trim her nails or to get an in focus picture.
But, I am also aware that she has the softest belly and the sweetest, most curious disposition. I am aware that she has a wet, snuffling nose that makes me giggle and a little tongue that licks you when you least expect it. However, I am most aware that she is the best part of my day and I don't know what I would do without her to come home to.
