I made a new buddy.
A porcupine.
The first time he stumbled upon me he kicked up the quills.
I just so happened to be eating a watermelon and chunked him a piece.
He gave it a sniff and then gobbled it down, saying "Yum, yum, yum."
Not kidding.
A few days later I made a pumpkin pie.
I was sitting outside, enjoying a slice.
Guess who shows up?
Not the most cuddly of critters, but I think I like him.

And chipmunks like ripe tomatoes. Especially during a drought!

They are adorable!
You're so lucky, don't have any where I am but they actually do have quite a personality.

Don't know how good pumpkin pie is for porcupines, but at the moment, I'd sure like to be in his place!

We have a hedgehog living in our courtyard, I think he has gone into hibernation in a corner, but we tried everything to get him to open up to us, but he was too scared. Maybe I should try watermelon... or pumpkin pie! I actually think they eat bugs and stuff though.

The best advice I found online for hedgehogs is good quality cat food, the dry sort. Apparently they prefer chicken flavour. I had one regularly visit me and my cat after putting out a saucer at night for it. You could hear it crunching away. Then, if he came and the saucer wasn't waiting for him, he'd just walk inside straight to the cat bowl and help himself. Not good though, fleas, keep 'em outside.

I made friends with a mouse at work. I would save pieces of my lunch and put it in front of the little hole he went in and out of. That was more than thirty five years ago. Wonder how the little fella is today...lol

Birds too. If you value your tomatoes put out a bird bath and keep it filled or you'll find holes pecked into them.

Porcupines looooove carrots, and Red Delicious is there favorite type of apple. In colder climates they will seek out sources of salt in late winter/spring due to deficiency in there winter diet.

Also, this book is fantastic...The North American Porcupine - Roze - Amazon Books

Well there you have it. He didn't want food. He wanted a cigarette.
