The leaves have started to change color in many places, and it's a great day to go out!
This is a story about a friend of mine who came from overseas for sightseeing during the holiday season.
Her name was "Mustard".
She's actually French.
She asked me to take her to a hot place in Japan, so of course I took her to the Owlvillage first.
She was so excited that it made me happy.
It seems that the cuteness of owls is universal!
After that, we ate sushi (the kind that goes around, of course lol), toured Asakusa, and went to Sky Tree.
When we were discussing where to go the next day, she mentioned "Hedgehog Cafe".
Hedgehogs are very popular in France, and she had been checking them out on Instagram.
I decided to go to the hedgehog cafe right away.
We took a seat around the hedgehogs' cages...
In front of me, there were hedgehogs walking or sleeping curled up in a ball!
Precautions at the Hedgehog Cafe
Please call the staff when you want to put Hedgehog on your hands.
Hedgehogs are very timid creatures, and when they feel danger, they protect themselves by holding their stingers upside down.
If an unfamiliar person suddenly touches you...
Scary, isn't it?
So, it's best to ask a sales clerk to help you first!
For those who are afraid of bare hands, there are special gloves available.
Once you get used to it, there are even children who curl up on your hand and start to fall asleep!
What a cute little thing!
I and Mustard also had their hands full, so they cackled while staying still!
Please do not forcibly grab.
Hedgehogs are very quick creatures, but please do not grasp the hedgehog strongly, do not foribly grab.
And when they get excited, they want to be as close to you as possible!
If you want to take a picture with him close to your face, don't lift him too high!
If your little hedgehog were to fall from such a high place, it would be a disaster.
Just thinking about it shortened my life span by 10 years. ...
Mustard, who imagined the same thing beside me, also turned pale.
Hedgehogs eat Millworm.
Hedgehogs are wild despite their cute faces!
With their cute hands, they grab a squishy millworm... and munch on it!
She has a cute face and cute hands, but she's eating a worm!
Mustard, who doesn't like insects in general, stared at it from a distance with tears in his eyes.
He looked at me from a distance with tears in his eyes. "Hedgehogs are alive, too, you know!
Even hedgehogs eat bugs.
Even owls eat raw meat!
It can't be helped because they're alive!"
Mustard muttered on the way home.
We were enjoying our hedgehogs, but
But when I said, "I think our owl is the cutest.
Mustard laughed at me when I said, "That's called parental foolishness, isn't it? Mustard laughed at me.
They're so cute.
I can't help it⁉( *´艸｀)♡
