Introducing Napkin, the ‘Ukulele Hedgehog,’ Plus Hairless Guinea Pigs, a Cockatoo, and More Unusual Ukulele Fans

What do hairless guinea pigs, a hedgehog, a cockatoo, a bunny, and a squirrel have in common? Their passion for ukulele, of course!

When we put the call out for photo submissions of ukuleles and pets — which ran in the Spring issue — we had no idea that there was a “Ukulele Hedgehog” named Napkin, who has her own song (watch above), or that Cookie the cockatoo played a Makala Dolphin.

Behold all these exotic creatures and their pet ukuleles:
