Post: Can they be tame again?
Posted by Samantha Tuley on 3/07/08
I am debating on whether or not to sell my precious quakers,
and I need some info. Nine years ago, I bought my first
quaker and absolutely fell in love with her. She was only
three months old and bonded to me right away. We were
inseparable for years, until, in 2003, I became pregnant.
She seemed to sense it and even though I tried to keep her
close to me as always, she started biting me more and more
to the point that she seemed she did not want anything to do
with me. So I bought a second young quaker, hoping he would
keep her company after I had my baby and would be unable to
spend as much time with her as I would like. Well, she is
still mean, and as for the male, he likes to pretend to be
mean in the cage, but, once he is out, he is a big baby and
hides his head in the palm of my hand. But Devi (the female)
wants nothing to do with me at all. I still love them very
very much, but I am afraid I am not, or can not, give her
the attention she needs. Can I ever tame her again and make
her love me and be bonded to me like she used to without
leaving scars on my fingers and face (she bites my face when
on my shoulder)?
