Obituary: Felicity HufflePuff Hedgehog, 2007-2011

Felicity HufflePuff Hedgehog, widely known by her stage name, Felicity Hogg, died suddenly, at home, in her cage, on Friday, September 16th, 2011.

Born on the Winter Solstice in 2007, Felicity was the star of "Hello, Hedgehogs!", a storytelling extravaganza, accompanied by her human associate, Ellie Shinham, and Pinkie Moon, her cage companion.

Particularly beloved of children, Felicity would not exit a classroom until she had visited with every single student. In all her long and illustrious career as an entertainer, Felicity bit only one child. And it must be said that that little one's hands were sweaty.

Felicity will be greatly missed. "Hello, Hedgehogs!" is currently in hiatus while Pinkie Moon is training to take over Felicity's role. Pinkie has demanded a new contract involving vast quantities of mealworms. This developing story will be watched closely.

Rest in Peace, Felicity HufflePuff Hedgehog. May you cross the Rainbow Bridge to a place of abundant hiding spots, endless food, and new things to sniff, where no one ever bathes you or clips your nails.


  1. So sorry to hear of this loss. Felicity was a classy performer and fascinating tuber. Loved seeing her in her performance at the DC Capital Fringe Festival. My sympathies to her loving human companion and Pinkie Moon.

  2. You have my sympathy. Love and light to Felicity, wherever her new playground might be. Love and light to you.

  3. Thanks, Ellouise & Lynnie! She was such a friendly girl. Hedgies just only live so long...


Thank you for your comment! I read them all.
