19 Reasons Why Hedgehogs Are The Cutest Things In The World

The internet has welcomed many different animals into its worldwide spotlight of insanely cute animals over the years. Among these would be cats, dogs, baby animals, sloths, etc. However, the cutest animal of them all is, without a doubt, the hedgehog. This tiny ball of cute is all over the internet in various memes and costumes and levels of adorable. Here is a list of the many reasons hedgehogs as the cutest things in the world.

1. The origin of their name.

Hedgehogs are so named because while they forage through hedges in search for food they make little piglike grunts through their piglike snouts.

2. They make the cutest little noises.

5. They like to pretend to be other things.

Hedgehogs are silly little things, pretending to be muffins.

6. Burritos

Angry burrito. Need I say more?

7. They are multi purposeful.

12. And driving.

Hedgehogs make excellent chauffeurs.

13. They're always getting things stuck on their heads.

According to the Wikipedia page on hedgehogs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedgehog, McDonald's changed the design of their McFlurry containers in 2006 because wild hedgehogs were getting their heads stuck and starving to death.

Domesticated hedgehogs, however, like to stick their heads in empty toilet paper rolls. They're owners often cut the tubes so that the hedgehog doesn't get trapped in it and can easily get out of it, though some hedgehogs still insist on getting stuck in them for hours.

14. They're mischievous little creatures.

Better keep an eye on these sneaky little things at all times.

15. They can take down a dinosaur anytime, anywhere.

Come on, there is no way that is not the most adorable thing you've ever seen.

16. Party animals only come out at night.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal. And they clearly like to party.

17. Always hug a hedgehog.

When you're feeling down, grab your nearest hedgehog for a little cuddle and I guarantee you'll feel much better.

18. They always believe in you.

But if you can't get to a hedgehog, just look at this picture of a hedgehog cheering you on. If that doesn't lift your spirits, I don't know what will.

19. Just look at them!


Sure, there are tons are super cute animals in this world. But none of them will ever be able to live up to hedgehogs. They are just too perfect for their own good.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
