Moxxi will be 2 this April and she has never tolerated being handled very well and has been generally very untrusting. I have been slowly working with her, starting with just sitting on the couch with her in an old tshirt. We have worked our way up to me actually holding her now and she is doing so great! She lets me hold and manipulate her in my hands with minimal huffing and when she does huff there is rarely a prick involved (she is kind enough to nudge me with her quills down)! I put her back today and she started eating so I decided to try gently petting her to see what she would do (something she has NEVER let anyone do). I started out very gingerly but by the end of 5 minutes (of straight un-huff inducing petting) I was petting her for real and she never even raised a quill. She then stopped eating and ran her body against my hand on the way to bed. I feel like I have finally started gaining her trust! Boy was it worth the wait! :grin:
