Meet Carl, The Sweet But Sour Hedgehog
Watch out Sonic, there's a new hedgehog in town. He might only be the ripe age of three but he's quickly becoming a Nashville legend. His name is Carl Click and he's an African pygmy hedgehog. Sure, he's got an old man name but his mom thinks it is quite fitting for this prickly little guy.
Carl's BFF is his mama (he'll only cuddle with her), Rachel, who is a mathematics professor. His dad Logan is a handyman who owns a renovation business. He's pretty rad but Carl is a mama's boy all the way. Charlie the miniature golden doodle is a good friend too. The duo loves to nap at Red Bicycle while their parents chit chat and sip on lattes. Carl gets his best sleep when he's got his stuffed moose by his side. But beware if you see his quills spiking up - it means he's "in a mood." In fact, his mom says he is like a sour patch kid - very sweet, but also sour.
Carl's parents love dressing him up in festive outfits and styling his photos with seasonal props . He's a great sport! It's like he knows how stinkin' cute he is and happily poses like he owns every camera lens in town.
When Carl isn't basking in the Nashville sun with his bestie Charlie, he loves to play hide and seek with his mom (of course). It can be challenging because Carl is a very fast runner. If he sees or smells worms, chicken, or eggs, he'll run like an Olympic gold medalist because those are his favorite foods. When his senses are alerted to those tasty treats, he anoints himself with a foam. (A hedgehog rite of passage, perhaps?)
For your daily dose of sugar & spice, follow Carl on Instagram. If you ever see him around town, make sure he's not acting sour before you say hello.
