For Wester 2011 (October 16, that year), I highlighted the Croquet hedgehog (Erinaceous europaeus dodgsonii), a curious subspecies of the European hedgehog that naturally comes in a variety of colors. Due to this hedgehog's naturally colorful quills and sturdy nature, English royalty bred them specifically for a more challenging game of croquet. Thanks to laws enacted in the past half century, the Croquet hedgehog has found a new and safer role as a popular pet with experienced hedgehog owners.

They're actually pretty friendly when they're not being whacked by flamingos. They also come in a variety of colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. One breeder was pretty excited about getting a brown Croquet hedgehog until tests showed it was actually an orphaned regular hedgehog. There were also unsubstantiated reports of a plaid Croquet hedgehog in the colors of the McDuck tartan, but it's pretty much dismissed as a hoax.

Remember 2010's Souther picture of a pet rock? No? You can see it on the first page of this topic. Last year, I finally settled on an animal, the Souther Squirrel.

On the first Sunday on the first Full Moon after the Northern Hemisphere's Summer Solstice (it fell on July 17 in 2011), the Souther squirrel likes to gussy up her pet rocks so she can sling them at unwary passersby while dancing on the slumbering noggins of good little boys and girls. Fortunately, she only aims the candied nuts. Usually. Twisted Evil

Meet Squeaky-Pie, one of the stars of the new show My Little Mousie! A snarky mousicorn, she seems oddly frustrated at times.

In the image below, she has an odd complaint. Beats me what she thought I meant, though. Neutral

Here's Peanut Flutter, another star of the new show My Little Mousie and close friend of Squeaky-Pie. This pegamousie's day job is at a stork delivery center for baby Mousies.

After she said the following line, Peanut Flutter started sniggering like crazy for some reason. Go figure.

Pay attention, you!

Bazookie-Tuu, a pegamousie inspired by the first comment stack on this picture of Banjo-Kazooie where Jolly Jack remarks that he wasn't too fond of Rare's tendency to put googly eyes on everything and got the response that it would make for some good jokes if used properly — jokes like a woman with big googly eyes for breasts.

Maytag massage, n. The momentary thrill experienced while sitting on a washer as it launches into the spin cycle. ~ Rich Hall, Unexplained Sniglets of the Universe

I forgot to post this earlier while Inktober was on.  It was inspired by one of our host artist's Apsaras this year, even if Cynthia doesn't seem as excited.
