Human! Don’t You Understand Smells? [by Hank the Hedgehog]

Hey, Hank the Hedgehog here.  Hope you guys are having a better day than me.  What’s going on, you ask?  Well, let me tell you….

Just when I get the place set up with the right mix of smells, just the right variety and intensity…something went very, very wrong.

What happened to my bedding?

For no reason whatsoever — That Human obliterates all my carefully cultivated aromas!

My sniffer is pretty powerful so I can still pick up traces but their essence is too diluted from a hot water soak.  There’s an added layer of some kind of all-natural soap, traces of ammonia and then a top note of vinegar.

I can’t fathom a more useless combination.  I might as well shed my quills and sleep out in the open.

Why why why Human?

How can she not understand the importance of smells?  The world is full of predators and as I always say, a good defence is the best offence.

This really gets my quills up!

Even the city pound understood.  They let me keep my smells.  Right up until That Human saw me and packed me up.

I should put in another call to the SPCA.  That Human is going to get us all killed.

Maybe I can salvage some smells down here…

That Human is pretty lucky to have me, come to think of it.  I’m not one of those pomerdoodles that love being carried around in purses, after all.  Talk about an embarrassment to the animal kingdom.

Nothing to salvage…I’ll have to start all over again.

This is too much, man, too much.

Here’s Lynyrd Skynyrd with some relief, at least.

Peace out.
