All what you need is a pair of gloves, some fruits and a little patience till Porcupine realises that you do not threaten him (or her?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5I5H7EeC8k
Good advice Kolytyi! Here's hoping!
Happy Patty's Day!
Thanks Basset Momma! Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you too! Did you do anything fun? I painted my nails green and had an appletini :D
ha ha - cute.
Thanks Mario's Mom!!
You got spiked. The Mama wants porcupines (they have two at a local rescue right now), but the Daddy is afraid he'll get spiked *all the time*. Wimpy Daddy! Don't worry, we are sure Mr. Pokey will come around and you'll be best friends in no time.
Haha I am with your Daddy on this one! They are super cute but scary!
I worked in a children's museum and we had a porcupine, his name was Quilliam. He was rather cute! Good luck with your friend.
Thanks Peggy! Quilliam sounds wonderful! I think if porcupines do not feel threatened, they can be very docile! Very cool animals, but I am keeping my distance from now on!
