Thank you..i hope she does mellow a bit1
Kathydip..thank you so much for the advice..the only thing is we have to catch her or get her out the crate to groom her..but i ordered a bunny brush sooo soft(no baby brushes as soft as this i assure you!) and she let my daughter brush her under a lot of kicking and panicking and biting her clothes..so she placed her beside her on the chair and she dozed as she was brushed..but last two days she wasnt having any of it!
yesterday tho she was being brushed and my half brother who comes by every week actually got to stroke her on the head and she closed her eyes blissfully..
We also discovered she likes apples..only when my daughter is eating them..sliced up as her CFS makes it to exhausting to bite an apple..causes too much jaw pain..(my daughter not bif!)
So she was offered the apple and kept going up and sniffing it..eventually she let my daughter place it righ near her and she nibbled it till it was all gone and she never ran away.
Shes been sniffing my mums legs up and down and periscoping and staring at her..
she responds to her name but wont come too near..HOWEVER i lay on the floor propped up in a bean bag as i hurt my back 6 months ago and sitting in a chair is agony..so she runs around me now instead of avoiding me and i talk to her as she goes past or looks at me..she sniffs me and nudges me as she runs round me and even climbed on my legs again..im not allowed to touch tho..so i just leave it at that.
However she now associates me with clean cage..breakfast and tea..she gives me cupboard love almost i swear..i put their food in and stroke them both on the head and nose and talk to them..this morning she let me rub my cheek against hers and kiss her ear and she she was perfectly happy..of course oscar got his too..we used to do it with him so and still do at feeding time so maybe it will help.
Also im leaving them in the crate till just after midday..there are still a few nte poos to be cleaned up! She saw me go past and thought ii was letting them out..now she lets me open the door and get on half the little block they use to jump down onto and she just comes out at normal pace now and even brushes against me!
Last night i was cleaning the crate put a few huge clumps of hay inside and i nearly stepped back on her..unbeknown to me she had been watching me all the time from right beside/behind me instead of behind the dog crate as usual!!
Im hoping it continues..shes so good for oscar and he adores her and she loves him too..although when i was bonding them you wouldnt have thought so!
Aww tabatha sounds so loving and i know hat you mean bout kitties..all my house buns have been fluent in CAT!! Now the puddies are all passed over..hes getting fluent in rabbit!!
