Hi! I’m a 30-something year old mom-to-be with a background in the biological sciences. To say I am passionate about hedgehogs is an understatement! I have loved these little guys for so long, I don’t even remember when it all started! I have learned so much about these fantastic little creatures in the years leading up to adopting my first hedgehog, Nestor, in 2017 (and even more with “on-the-job” experience!).

I decided to create a hedgehog care blog so that I could use what I have learned to give back to the community. I aspire to become a breeder someday, but I still have a lot to learn before that day comes.

When I’m not basking in grumpy hedgehog love, I enjoy cross-stitching, reading (both literary and genre fiction), and playing the odd video game. Since finishing my studies in the sciences, I have been having a lot of fun nurturing my more creative side.
