To brighten your day, all you need is a happy, squishy hedgehog. If these adorable vampy smiles don’t warm your heart, I don’t know what will. Precious moments that capture the honest friendship between animals and their humans are what makes the internet a place we don’t even mind wasting our time on.
It all started with Mr. Pokee.
A ridiculously photogenic pocket-sized hedgehog who was on a mission to put smiles on people’s faces while going on his exciting daily adventures. Pokee was a true petfluencer among the Instagram hedgehogs setting the standards of what joy and ‘living to the fullest’ should look like. Pokee had 1.5 million followers.
Unfortunately, lovely Mr. Pokee passed away in March due to bacteria after his dental surgery at almost 4 years old. Talitha honored his memory with a tattoo on her wrist and symbolically, Mr. Pokee still lives in most of the photos.
