Didn’t Quite Make It

dead porcupine

I love porcupines, so I was sad to see this one didn’t quite make it.

Now, I have three cats, and we want to get a dog, so the thought of porcupines near our home is a cause for some concern… but so far no one has gotten into it with a porcupine, and that’s how I like it. I had a pet porcupine as a kid, and they’re just as sweet as can be when they’re not scared. Oh – that bit about them shooting quills? Total myth. They’re VERY sharp, but you have to make contact with the porcupine to get stuck.

I don’t know who Mike is, but the porcupine’s placement is certainly very ironic.
