Just time - don't rush, let him explore you and your family and your home. Let him get comfortable and he will stop being shy and skidish. One day you will be one here asking how to stop him from doing ........whatever!! <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh.gif" /> You can't force him to need you, like you, want you to touch him. Just be available and keep singing and reading and talking to him. And keep those treat handy.
