Jackson is almost over being afraid of me. He still isn't a fan of me reaching right out to pat him, but that's just about it. He does like to snuggle up to his sisters which is also freakin adorable. At one point all three of them were in a bed together, and wasn't I mad I didn't bring my camera down with me.
The girls.. well at least they don't run and hide when I come into the room (well most times) I've been trying to engage them with me to build their confidence. They want nothing to do with the hand monster. I did entice them over to me with the track ball. That they like. If I get that running I get everyone over to investigate. Ella usually sits right in the middle being the "monkey in the middle" and the artists spread themselves out on the other side of me. Jackson will jump right in and be totally involved. Evelyn is second in her enthusiasm / fear of me. Miss Lady Frida Floofface generally likes to watch, occasionally reaching a paw out to touch the ball. With things hot and heavy I can usually reach over and touch one of them with out a major reaction which is a plus.
Last night I got Jackson to give me the paw of doom. it was so precious.. as always the first fists of furry are done with out claws.. (don't want to get a claw caught in anything that could hurt you) and it was so heartwarming to watch him be so brave and assert himself like that. I praised the living daylights out of him, and did my best to encourage his sisters to step up and do the same. Evelyn seems to be the next one who will be willing, but no luck so far.
It can be done..
