Sleeping Beauty


Princess P. is still fairly young (though maturing quickly), so she sleeps a lot.  She sleeps in her igloo, she sleeps in her cuddle sacks, she crawls under shirts and tries to sleep there (this isn’t usually popular with the shirt wearers), and if she’s sitting on you she’ll crawl under your hand, curl up, and sleep there.

A Handful of Hedgehog


Princess Pricklepants has been growing steadily, her last weigh-in put her at 10.4 oz/295 g.  While she no longer is as small as she was even a week ago, she’s still not very big.  She’s easy to carry in one hand.  She sometimes will fall asleep in your hand if you are boring enough to her, and she falls asleep sitting on my leg or stomach with my hand over her head a lot.  She’ll walk up to my hand,  push her nose under my hand to get underneath, then curl up into a ball with her head pressed against my palm and fall asleep.

We think she’s just about done growing at this point (though only time will tell).  She’s around the average weight for an adult hedgehog, though there is some variety in sizes.

Here she is being held by Sophie.

Getting sleepier.

She’s out.

Napping comfortably in Sophie’s hand.

Happy Holidays!


We finally have a few decent holiday photos from the latest attempt.  Yay!

Hark, the Herald Hedgehogs Sing

The multi-talented Princess P. P. never fails to amaze.

Calmly and patiently modeling the hat that was surprisingly hard to sew.

Christmas means carnage!

Princess P. does Not Make a Great Model For Christmas Photos


Image

“Please sit still, please, please.  Come on.”

Pay no attention to the hand behind the chair…

Carolina Storm Hedgehogs has a Christmas photo contest, so we’ve been trying to get something going.  She has not been cooperating.

The Princess, the Dragon, and the Giraffe – A Drama in Several Parts


One Upon a Time there was a very prickly princess.  Who was attacked by a dragon.  There was a giraffe.  With a wand.

Image

For reasons involving the plot, she clobbered the giraffe.

Image

Then she clobbered the dragon.

Image

Which the giraffe approved of.

Image

Image

She then climbed the giraffe.

Image

And she lived happily ever after.  Sadly, the Dragon and Giraffe did not.

Image

Ta da!
