Thanks. He does seem to be eating a little on his own, not much, but a few pieces of squash & bell pepper. He also doesnít like to be held & is very jumpy when I move my hands. I have been taking him out a few times a day and sitting him on my lap (on top of a towel). As long as he can see my hands, heís fine just sitting there but if I try to even get close to petting/touching him itís over. I get whipped or scratched as he tries to run. Any advice on how to help him get use to being handled beside just forcefully holding him, which Iím already doing?
