There were some hedgehog stories in the news today. One comes courtesy of my Jersey-City-Host that is just TOO cute for words.

Orphaned hedgehogs adopt cleaning brush as their mother

Seriously–the headline was fabulous. How can you not just fall in love with those little guys! *sigh*…if only I wasn’t so hard core about wanting a Siamese again. I’m afraid a cat would eat the hedgehog. Certainly Dinah would play with it until it died (she’s not quite bright enough to eat it–she’s getting by on her cuteness).

The other story was rather sad –apparently hedgie’s need to be amongst protected species…

Hedgehogs join ‘protection’ list

I hope it’s not a long term protection and they can come back and be as prickly as before.
