Finally 3 months later

Finally after 3 months with fireball he has allowed me to let him sit on my arm and carry him around. It's a huge victory for me and more of a favor for him I believe but I'll take it.

Wink Re: Finally 3 months later

Not really sure. I just kept going over to him and talking to him and try to reassure him I wasn't gonna hurt him. He would start shaking and move away from me every time. Then about 3 days ago he put his leg out like he does when he wants my wife to pick him up and he just stepped on and away we went. Thought it may have been an isolated incident but he keeps coming back for more.
