    Hey Guys, I got this lekker pin cushion last week and I dunno why it won't stand up straight. At the LFS it was erect but now the sloppy bugger only slouches.
    Any advise for me? Is it bad for the cushion? Or am I being para? 110949d9fb14d9cab.jpg

    You being Para ;)

    These pincushions do this from time to time. Just be careful he ain't resting against a rock for to long as he will attach and start growing from this new base.

    Leathers expel their "liquids" from timer to time. normally just before shedding, so it is quite normal.

    It could be a bit upset if it came from a tank that was mush cooler, but it will come right.

    Just like you take yours Tobes, but just swollow quick otherwise you may get a stiff neck:lol:
