Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
Penelope and Teddy like to just check out the covers, the lumps we make under the covers and the cats (if they are also there). Then they will look to jump off the bed but it's so high they haven't tried it yet. Although Teddy managed to jump on our bed - I wish I saw him do it.
If I want either of them to cuddle I have to grab them. Teddy will let me cradle him like a baby and stroke his cheeks. Penelope prefers to lay on my chest and have her cheeks stroked. I have read that one should let a bun warm up to them on the buns terms. It didn't take long for Teddy and Penelope to warm up to me. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for Oliver and Ophelia to decide I am not a horrible monster. Funny thing is we adopted Ollie and Ophelia at 3-4 months of age. We didn't get Teddy or Penelope until they were adults.
My best suggestion if you are having trouble getting him to come to you is to bribe him. Give him a treat while you sit there. I hand feed all treats to my buns. I break the treat up into the smallest pieces possible so it lasts longer. The one thing that Ollie and Ophelia will do is eat out of my hand. They like it when I hand them hay, salad, pellets - whatever. They know if I say "here Oliver/Ophelia" it means they are getting food.
