Adorable Adventures Chronicle the Friendship of a Hedgehog and Bengal Cat

Adorable Hedgehog Photos

Animals are the world’s cutest adventurers. Proving this true is the happy hedgehog Herbee and his furry feline friend Audree. Together, they traverse gorgeous landscapes as a dynamic duo that makes the most of every moment. Their human, Talitha Girnus, captures beautiful portraits of them posing against mountain backdrops, among fields of wildflowers, and as they enjoy an afternoon snack while Herbee lounges in an empty coffee cup. Their jubilance is palpable and makes their popular Instagram account a delight to follow.

Girnus posts pictures of the animal pals under the name @mr.pokee, an adorable hedgehog who started it all back in 2015. It was love at first sight for Girnus who got Pokee when he was just eight weeks old. “Do you know that feeling when the world stands still for a few seconds? That's how it was when I first held Pokee in my hands,” she recalls. “He was very calm and laid flat on my hand as if he wanted to tell me that he belonged right there.”

Sadly, Pokee passed away shortly before his fourth birthday in early 2019. But his spirit lives on through Herbee and Audree. “Between all the serious things happening in the world every day, Pokee and now also Herbee and Audree are here to give you a reason to be happy and smile,” Girnus says. “Whenever you return to our page, we want to remind you to never lose faith and always follow your heart.”
