There isn’t anything cuter in the world, than little furrier explorers getting out in the world. If you’re active on Instagram, you’ve probably seen or even followed the cute little hedgehog Herbee and his feline pal, Audree.
The four-legged pair of adventurers go around to different landscapes, taking gorgeous selfies. These adventures are all made possible thanks to their human, Talitha Girnus, who captures the cute pictures of the duo posing in front of mountains, in wildflower fields, or just enjoying an afternoon with snacks as Herbee hangs out in an empty coffee cup.

It’s this cute pairing and playfulness between the two that makes their Instagram page so popular, plus so delightful to follow.
Talitha posts all the pictures of Herbee and Audree under the Instagram handle @mr.pokee. For anyone who doesn’t follow the page, Mr. Pokee was a little hedgehog that started the Instagram craze back in 2015.
Talitha said that it was love at first sight when she first got Mr. Pokee at just 8 weeks old.
Talitha recalls, “Do you know that feeling when the world stands still for a few seconds? That’s how it was when I first held Pokee in my hands. He was very calm and laid flat on my hand as if he wanted to tell me that he belonged right there.”
Unfortunately, Mr. Pokee passed away in early 2019, just shy of his fourth birthday. But Mr. Pokee is not forgotten. His lives on in spirit with Herbee and Audree continuing his adventures.
Talitha says, “Between all the serious things happening in the world every day, Pokee and now also Herbee and Audree are here to give you a reason to be happy and smile. Whenever you return to our page, we want to remind you to never lose faith and always follow your heart.”
We can’t wait to see more of Herbee the hedgehog and Audree Bengal cat traveling around the world, snapping cute pics.
