You can see how pleased my cat Ralph here is to be friends with the hedgehog who lives in my garden: his look tells you in no certain terms that he's very aware that, out of all the cats in the neighbourhood, the hedgehog who lives in my garden has picked him.
What I like most about my cat Ralph's relationship with the hedgehog who lives in my garden is how comfortable they seem to be to just be themselves around one another.
I think it's clear from the hedgehog who lives in my garden's body language here that he really likes my cat Ralph on an all-round level. It's not just one of those flash in a pan hedgehog-cat romances that burn bright for a week or two then peter out.
Sometimes my cat Ralph and the hedgehog who lives my garden will challenge one another to a race. Ralph is a generous cat, so he always gives the hedgehog who lives in my garden a head start.
I like the honesty of this shot: It's like my cat Ralph is saying to the hedgehog who lives in my garden "You have fleas, I have fleas, so why should we lie about that fact, or be bashful about scratching ourselves in front of one another?" and the hedgehog is saying "Amen to that, brother."
