 Return of the Hedgehogs

Itchee & Scratchee

“Do you remember Itchee & Scratchee?

Well, they’ve been in Hospital,

Where they were warm, safe and Happy,

And now the winter is over,

And the grass is in clover,

They’re coming home,

Where they’ll be free to roam,

Their captivity is at an end,

They can see their family and friends,

And their lives can now begin again.”
