A few days ago we got a rather concerned Tweet from Wendy, who told us that she had heard her little Maurice cryin’ the night before because he hadn’t been featured as one of our Pets of Instagram.. Clearly Ms Tayler is a rather good momager (aka the Kris Jenner of hedgehogs) cos just look here, a whole post dedicated to Maurice the Hedgehog, as well as his own slickly run Instagram account that follows his adventures, from typing up emails on a MacBook to hiding in birds houses, it’s all in a days work for this lil creature. Whilst in the past we’ve only featured dogs & cats, which now seem far too tame, please let us know if you find any cray Pets of Instagram accounts, or if you have a cute bunny that needs some good PR!
We caught up with Maurice to talk all thing Instagram, his favourite editing apps & his best angle..
