Mr. Hershey is still hanging out with us. So far several people have expressed interest. The first candidate met him last weekend and didn't immediately fall in love. He was a little unsure about Hershey's bratty biting behavior.
When Hershey doesn't want to do something or gets super excited he likes to express that energy using his teeth. He'll grab a hand with his claws, hold it in position and chomp! He uses a bit more force than is comfortable.
Changing this behavior will take consistently giving him an undesired consequence such as the play and attention immediately cease and I leave the room right after he bites. Hopefully in a short period of time he'll learn that using his teeth brings about something undesirable.
Meanwhile, someone else will be coming over later tonight to meet Hershey! I hope they fall in love!
In unrelated news, I'm taking a photography class! The photographer who did the pet photos with santa at the big holiday pet adoption event is teaching it. It's a basic "how to get off the automatic setting of your DSLR camera" class. I'm excited and hopefully in a few more weeks I'll start taking much better pictures! You'll have to let me know if you start to notice a difference in picture quality.
