Hedgehogs are one of my virtual therapy animals or totems. Hedgehogs have the ability to protect, and their medicine is one of being “untouched” by the dreadfulness of unsafe situations. Hedgehogs are supremely cute, I think, and I delight in these little creatures.
“Chuang Tzu was a philosopher in ancient China, who, one night went to sleep and dreamed that he was a butterfly. He dreamt that he was flying around from flower to flower and while he was dreaming he felt free, blown about by the breeze hither and thither. He was quite sure that he was a butterfly.” (Philosophyfoundation.org)
I dream I am a hedgehog, or maybe I am a hedgehog dreaming that I am a human. There you go. It makes sense to me!

Hedgehogs are absolutely adorable.
I saw one in the wild, once. I was walking home one night and I saw motion out of the corner of my eye. When I looked closer, it was a little hedgehog, trying very hard to not be noticed by me.
I love love love that the natural defense mechanism of a hedgehog when spotted by a human is just, “LA LA LA I’M A PINECONE YOU CAN’T SEE ME!”
They are so absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing your story of your encounter 💕
A cute and cheeky little creature!
So sweet. xxx
Those little hedgehogs are so cute! 🙂
What a sweet post, Ka. And I love the photos. So adorable. I think being a hedgehog is rather lovely. ❤
They are so cute! I used to love Jan Brett’s books with Hedgie. Have you read those? If not, you and your little one are in for a treat~ check out The Snowy Nap to start :0).
Wonderful! I will check out this book series 😌 we love reading together! Thanks! 💕
I do love hedgehogs, I thinks it’s because you expect them to be as awful as their spikes, yet they are really cute inside and adorable, especially when they’re babies❤️ sending you love🥰
Awh! They are so sweet with their soft belly insides 💗 Such creatures like this need the protection. Nature is a marvel! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
I love your totem animal. I used to feed one in my garden years ago but haven’t seen any for so long.
