About Us


Pokee is a 3-year-old African Pygmy Hedgehog that became popular through Instagram. Before I adopted Pokee, I didn't know that domesticated hedgehogs even existed. Neither did I know that they were diferent from the wild ones in our backyards. When I picked Pokee up from the breeder, I immediately fell in love with him. He made me smile even on the worst days. I started taking photos of him, because I thought he was the cutest thing on earth. After a little while I created an Instagram page for him to share the joy he brings me. Between all the serious things going on in this world I wanted to give people a reason to smile - even if just for a little while. 


I'm a 26 year-old student from Wiesbaden, Germany. I'm currently taking my Master's degree in Innovation Management after I finished my Bachelor of Arts in Media and Communication Management. I always try to find the time to travel - my greatest passion. When I was 16, I spent a year in the US, and after I finished high school, I went to New Zealand and Australia for 6 months to work and travel. After that, I started exploring Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam and South Korea in my semester breaks. My dream is to be able to see the whole world and take little Pokee with me whenever I can.  

That being said, hedgehogs aren't as easy to care for as it may seem -There are several things you need to know. I am aware of the responsibility that comes along with having a high reach and influence. Therefore, I created a website primarily to share my experience. Let me help you to figure out whether or not a hedgehog is the right pet for you. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions. Learn about housing, diet, bathing and hedgehog traits. Leave some love and share the happiness. I hope you'll enjoy following along our daily adventures!
