Kitty-lovers & hedgehog enthusiasts everywhere, prepare yourselves because boy, do we have a treat for you! This next video is one that will surely make you smile ear to ear.

Turn your speakers up and then give a warm hello to Loki, an adorably curious kitten. He has a new friend to get acquainted to but this friend ISN’T exactly another kitten. In fact, he’s far from it. This friend is… a hedgehog! Yep, you read the correctly! Harley, the African Pygmy hedgehog, is a new member to this family! And don’t worry, in Canada it’s perfectly legal and normal to have a hedgehog for a pet! (SO COOL!)
Of course, Loki doesn’t quite know what to make of his new playmate… And we don’t blame him – I mean, can you imagine trying to wrestle that thing? 😉

While he’s a little unsure, Loki bravely greets Harley face-to-face… and it turns out, hedgehogs are awfully fun to play with! ☺ Get ready for some cuteness! I could watch these two on repeat all day; Check ‘em out!


Totally adorable, right? Kind of makes me want to adopt a hedgehog buddy for my cat! 😉 In all seriousness though, couldn’t you just watch these two for hours? How do you think your kitty would handle such an odd friend? Would he love it, hate it, or be completely freaked? Tell us in the comments section below! 🙂
