I met a pair of echidnas the other day.



oh...my...you lucky thing you. TOO CUTE. They look like a cross between a hedgehog and an anteater. Not very snuggly-looking though.
The old man had all his own teeth, but only because no-one else could possibly have wanted them.

That is so adorable! I could just eat him up!
Everybody in this family needs to just calm down and eat some fruit or something.

WANT!  I am sure if you pet them the correct way, it shouldn't hurt too awfully bad.  Right?!

I've actually had the chance to pet an echidna -- you can do it without getting hurt!  The quills (spines?) feel kinda like PVC.

I imagine it's hard to cuddle them, though.

Awww, thanks! I'm just glad that I know I'll have all of these pictures forever, since they're on my FB account.

I'm posting my farewell to the real Midnight with a picture taken with DH just hours before she passed on December 2, 2011.  She would have been 18 in January 2012, so she had a good run as the boss of our home.  I started my new job on 12/1.  I came home excited to find a dying cat.  I thought she would not make it through the night.  She slept on my pillow, as she has for over 17 years.  At 5-1/2 pounds, there wasn't much left but love and a purr.  She wasn't in pain, but she was ready.


For pictures of her in happier days, see this post:
http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=67564.msg2600472#msg2600472

It has been 3 weeks and we still miss her every day.  Her sister, Bootsie, is not eating much, not enough.  We think she is grieving for her sister.  At least she's starting out at a hefty 13-1/2 pounds, so she won't starve soon.  Still, she needs to lose weight slowly, not crash, or we might lose her, too.
