Dear little hedgehog,

If you love running, but hate running with too-long nails, why do you put up such a fight against getting your nails trimmed? See how much farther you ran last night after I ambushed you in broad daylight to trim your nails? Now, please let me finish your front left foot without eating the nailclippers.

Love,
Your human

To my smallest friend,

Huff and puff all you want: your bandanna-dragging reveals your true affection. You gave yourself away when you dragged your me-scented bandanna through your tunnel network to watch you wheel, back through the tunnels to join you at dinner, and into the tunnels once more after that to bring it to your pigloo for a sleepy-snuggle.

Love,
Your smelly, smelly human

Little one,

When I brought you home seaweed and hay as souvenirs from my trip without you, I expected maybe a few polite-curiosity sniffs. I did not expect you to lunge across my lap and snatch the offerings out of my fingers. Are seaweed and hay a symbolic bouquet for hedgehogs, like a dozen red roses for humans? Did I just propose?

Your illiterate human

Dear my spiky cuddle ball,

You don't need to put up a puffing match every time i bring someone other then me into my room, or "your room", to enjoy your adorableness. Then as soon as they leave, and you don't smell them anymore, you lay your quills down and look at me, then climb into my lap and fall asleep instantly. I would never bring anyone near you that would hurt you.

Lots of love your human:)

My fastidious friend,

I know going in the wheel is a totally normal hedgehog characteristic.
I know preferentially pooping in a litter box is a thing some hedgehogs do, and others don't.
I know that occasionally your brethren can be extraordinarily tidy in their adventures, although it is fairly rare.

But really, you need one wheel for waste, and another for running, so you don't get your feet messy? I understand that poop-boots aren't the most stylish accessory, but that does seem a wee bit picky.

Love,
Your indulgent human

I love you Reagrdless,

Dear Hedgie baby # 2

I just want to give you love, why must you reject it? Also why must you poop on all my friends?

You are a special fella,
Love your Momma

Dear my little cuddle-dork, (Meeko)

When you crawl up my shoulder and lick the back of my neck, it may be oh-so cute but I do have to take you down from there because it tickles and I don't want you to fall. I promise I'm not just being a big meanie-pants.

Sincerely,
Your worrywart mommy


Dear little grumpy pants, (Truffles)

Just because I take out your wheel does not mean it is gone forever. I promise I am just cleaning it because you have absolutely destroyed it with your poops and I WILL put it back. Also, you can bite and huff and puff all you want, but I know you are realizing how much I love you after the rough life of mean owners you have had. When I hold you in a little ball in the palm of my hand after I have managed to clip a few nails, you look at me and I can see the love in your little beady eyes.

Sincerely,
Your lovestruck and cleaning mommy
