Occasionally, the most surprising friendships can turn out to be the most fulfilling. Animals tend to have a remarkable ability to bond with creatures of different species despite the usual stereotypes. For instance, dogs and cats are often considered as arch-rivals but they can actually coexist peacefully. However, have you ever thought about an unlikely friendship between a cat and a hedgehog?
Back in 2015, a lady from Germany, Talitha Girnus, decided to make an Instagram account for her charming pet hedgehog, Mr. Pokee. At the time when she created the account, Mr. Pokee was only eight weeks old. With a desire to spread happiness and joy, Talitha started updating the page with pictures of her cute hedgehog on his exciting escapades. She wanted to share her love for her adorable pet with the world and believed that Mr. Pokee’s smiling face could bring happiness to others. To achieve this, she took her spiky companion to some breathtaking locations and shared stunning photos on social media.
The hedgehog, known as Herbee, has captured the hearts of many with his adorable and cheerful demeanor as he explores various places with his owner. Talitha Girnus, who owns both Herbee and another animal, often shares their adventures on social media platforms, including her personal Instagram account. However, it is Herbee who steals the show with his charming personality, as evidenced by his massive online following of over 1.8 million fans. This furry duo has become one of the most popular and beloved animal accounts on the internet.
Talitha shared that she once had a dream where she had a Bengal cat as her adventure buddy and they had an amazing friendship. Though she felt disappointed when she woke up and realized it was just a dream, she soon realized that this fantasy could turn into reality. So, she browsed on Google and eventually stumbled upon Audree, a feline that immediately caught her attention and stole her heart.
When Talitha made her first visit to meet Audree, she brought along Herbee, her beloved hedgehog. It was an unexpected pairing as Audree was a cat and Herbee was a tiny hedgehog. Despite this, the two animals formed an unbreakable bond and became inseparable friends in no time. It was a surprising sight to see as Herbee didn’t show fear towards the cat and didn’t even put his quills up when they met.
Frequently, he embarks on road trips and expeditions with his two animal companions, and their distinct differences have never affected their camaraderie. The snapshots he captures are absolutely remarkable; not only does he locate and pick out the most breathtaking backdrops, but his two furry pals are remarkably photogenic too.
Herbee and Audree are now the best of friends. They are always together, whether it’s during playtime or nap time. You can even catch them snuggling up with each other from time to time. It seems that they have become inseparable!
Although Mr. Pokee’s absence is deeply felt by his followers, the legacy of his friendship with Herbee and Audree lives on through their exciting adventures. As the saying goes, two heads are better than one – especially when it’s an unexpected pairing. Join in as Herbee and Audree embark on incredible journeys together, capturing some of their most adorable moments along the way.
