Yes Virginia, there really are Halloween Hedgehogs. And here are the photos of my daughter’s hedgehog Walter to prove it!

I pretty much have to give my daughter full credit for everything in this post. Walter is her hedgehog, the witch’s hat that Walter is wearing was made by her, and these photos were taken by her with her camera.

She gave me permission to post these photos of Walter the Halloween Hedgehog so that I could share them with you.

Hedgehogs seems to be the perfect pet for dressing up in hats, especially for Halloween. Apparently, hedgehogs in hats is a thing, and you can find photos of them all over the internet.  Take a look at this Pinterest page, and you’ll see what I mean.

I recently came across this sweet drawing by a talented illustrator on this blog.

Perhaps because their spines are so pointy, I think that hedgehogs look particularly adorable in pointy hats.

My daughter has actually made about three different styles of hats for Walter the Halloween Hedgehog, but this one is my favorite. Some very thin elastic cord that goes under Walter’s chin keeps the hat from falling off.
