Well, i've read around here that the best way is to scoop them slowly. I do that usually, and Maiche seems rather comfortable wit it. However, there are situations when I can't do that (very small hiding place, rather dangerous surroundings, etc) and I'm forced to grab a couple of quills and pull her up. I imagine it hurts her, so I was wondering if there is another way to get them out. Im asking this because, I don't know how, she ended up hiding in my unplugged printer. I dont want her end up all covered in ink, but I can hardly reach her. Any suggestions?
