  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Animal lovers may want to look away now as a cat desperately tries to scratch an itch - using a spiky hedgehog.

But while you would think the hedgehog would prove a bit prickly, this blue British shorthair appears to think it makes the perfect scratching post.

The 56 second clip posted on YouTube earlier this week shows the domesticated cat tentatively approaching the curled up hedgehog before rolling its neck around the bristles.

I thought a scratching post is something the cat scratches?

Poor little porcupine looked a little terrified but that cat was so adorable and just enjoying rubbing his neck against them spikes.  AWWW

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

My cat does this with shoes and feet. I think he has a foot fetish.

My cats do this with everything.  I mean everything.  One just knocked the baking pan off the oven rubbing on it.  Cats are weird, period.  I've had them screw around with my cactus plant I used to have.  It's more than curiosity, it's the lack of sense.  Cats may have ruled Egypt but they don't know what the hell they're doing now.
