Default Introducing Fitzgerald Francis Scott

We were finally able to bring Fitzgerald home yesterday!

He's a champ with bonding time. He doesn't huff much -- even when woken up. In total, we had him out for about three hours yesterday. He lets my 6yo hold him with a snuggle sack, and my husband and I handle him bare handed but always have his favorite sack available. He doesn't prick us very much -- usually only if something startles him while we're holding him -- but he did nip me a couple of times. My hand soap must not have removed whatever good scent I'd touched because an extra hand wash took care of the issue.

He's more of an explorer than a snuggler, though he's happy to snuggle and sleep if I had to wake him or if he's tired from exploring. (He actually took a fall last night while exploring because I couldn't catch him, but he seems to be fine. I've checked him thoroughly a few times.) And he obviously made good use of his time last night. My husband was up late working on homework, and he heard Fitzgerald playing a lot. His wheel was also covered in poop, so I know his wheel lesson in the afternoon paid off. He ate 30 kibbles and drank some water (I'm not sure how much because I measured the bottle, but I forgot to measure the dish when I put it in.), and so far, his poop only has the faintest green tinge.

All in all, he's transitioning beautifully!
