Pokilopnik

It’s been a while since I introduced Watson, my daughter’s hedgehog. If you can’t tell, he’s grown quite a bit since then!

After watching him run on his wheel, I completely understand where they got the idea for Sonic. Look at his little legs go!

His wheel is too small for him, so we have a new one on order. My daughter says they can travel up to five miles in a night. I was hoping she would find one with a counter so we could see how far he really runs, but she ordered it before we talked about it. No matter, this is an opportunity for a weekend project!

So far, Watson has been neat, but he’s definitely not a pet for everyone. It’s like owning a unique car - it’s interesting to see, but few people are willing to put in the work to keep it running.
