: Hi, so far I've left Dizzy in her cage since sunday night. Every day, she starts to trust me more. Crawling into my hand more and more often. So what should be the next step. I have her in her pouch under my shirt right now and she's sleeping peacefully. She was a little crabby when I lifted the pouch, to put it under my shirt, but didn't crab at my finger when I presented her a treat (she used to crab at it). Just wanted to know what the best/next step was?

: Thanks

i would put my hand in the pouch while she is sleeping and let her lie on my open palm, like i'm doing right now with alex,he licks my finger occasionally! i start doing this at the same time everyday for a short time around 6, then puthim back in his cage, during their sleeping hours they seem to be less aggressive. he likes to sleep late and i try to be there to let him see me feed him, then in the morning i take him to my batroom and let him go over my back and wherever without bothering him. good luck, but i might wait a day or so before i do this
