Follow This Hedgehog Immediately

If you’re like me, you probably follow a lot of adorable pets on Instagram like corgis, French bulldogs, German shepherds, and although I am a dog person, I do follow the occasional cute cat. You might not think a Hedgehog would have such a big social media following, but let me change your mind on that one. Atticus the hedgehog is a super cute spiky friend with a perfectly curated Instagram aesthetic. See for yourself:

Just look at that lil hedgie face! He’s such a curious creature and definitely gives off those summer festival vibes with that flower crown.

Obviously he has a photoshoot with the perfect hipster apartment accessory: crystals. In this pic, we can really see his natural highlights #blessed.

Can you point out which one is the hedgehog? It pretty much just looks like a pile of cuddly cuteness to me.

He even has his own needlepoint?! When someone makes you a personalized needlepoint portrait, that’s when you know you’ve made it.

He accessorizes his quills! Like, c’mon. If I haven’t convinced you already that this guy is a gem, this post definitely will.

He looks right at home and he couldn’t be snugglier. This face just looks like he’s ready to invite you in for a snack and a cup of tea.

First the crystals, now the succulent. I told you that his aesthetic is #goals. Is it sad that a hedgehog is trendier than I am?

The little feets! The little paws! It’s all almost too much to handle. If you haven’t already, it’s time to follow this perfect ball of cuteness.
