Happy Birthday, Herbert!

Yes, I am one of those pet owners who celebrates their pets birthday…

Guilty! Anyway, today is Herbies 2nd Birthday & I thought he should have a treat to celebrate (a chicken one; his favourite)! He's the grumpiest little hedgehog I've ever met, but that doesn't mean we love him any less. He's full of character & enjoys the odd belly tickle here and there (even if he does have a cross expression on his face while we do it). He's a very special hog.

Do you celebrate your pets birthday? Or am I just crazy? … In fact, don't answer that! 

Happy Birthday Herbs!

    1. I think the exact same thing when I get him out every morning, even if he is annoyed to be woken up! Haha! :) xx

  2. Ahhh he's so precious! Do you have to wear gloves when you pet him, or do you just pet his tummy? I'd love to own a hedgehog!

    1. Thanks Tamsin :) Nope, no need for gloves! His prickles when flat (i.e. when he's fairly relaxed) feel like stroking a hairbrush! When he's annoyed (and goes into a full hedgehog ball) it is a little prickly, but your hands soon get used to it :) tend not to pet him too much, but just admire his cuteness while tickling his furry sides, hehe xx

  3. Happy birthday to the sweetest hedgehog! And yes I also celebrate my pup's birthday - how could I not? x

  9. This is awesome! Penny's 6 month was on Thursday!
    My dad actually celebrates his dogs birthday too far out - Last time, he had a cake with two candles, and a picture of her on top.. Weirdo! xx
