Yes Pat he is litter trained, he is very good about going in his tray.

We will get him nutered as I know it will calm him down some what.

Harry is happy that Stanley is in his own room now as he can go everywhere in the house with me again without me worrying about possable fights.

I gave Stanley his dinner today which he quickly ran through to try to get to me *sigh*. Shall keep trying as I can't let this little dude beat me, he will be my friend damn it! :lol:

The other night Stan decided I am not all bad seems lemonade with ice and a straw is very fun so clearly the human drinking it must be. After making himself very sticky he decided my silk shirt was nice to stroke and cuff links are fun to remove and wash in lemonade . I would have been mad if he was not so cute. He got in a bit of a mood when I kept telling him off for trying to nibble off the buttons but he stopped eventually. (Oddly my dad's macaw also removes buttons.)

Now he has decided I am a great toy and he also loves Sprite which is nice. He keeps trying to copy her in body language which is SO funny! Sprite will run up to him and sort of bow down and then he will try to bow back however the best thing so far is when he was copying her and she got an itch in her ear and shook her head and he copied her shaking his head I thought there was something wrong with him for a few mins!

I am not totally sure why he is okay with me now, maybe as I have been the only one feeding him (bar when I have been working at meal times) and I have done so by hand when he has been in a large dog crate. (He gets fed in the crate go he does not try to kill me again.)

Think we are maybe getting somewhere. Fingers crossed!

That's great news! I've been following this story for a while hoping that he would come around. It seems like you're making some positive progress! I hope his attitude continues to improve. If he gets to like you, are you going to keep him? Or do you think you'll still give him to your dad?

I never give up on .... well, anything so yeah he is here to stay. At first though I started to think i was about to be defeted for the first time.

He still trys to charge at me when I enter a room even when he is in his crate but he soon notices that he cant actually reach me. He also grabs my fingers when I feed him and tries to pull them into the crate OR chew my fingers when he takes the food. Thankfully he has had no success.

We will get there in the end.

Sounds like you're making progress. When he tries to chew your fingers, offer him a chew toy (rawhide is Chloes' choice). Even if the attempt is aggression, giving him a toy to chew will eventually sink in that toys are for attacks.

I have been doing that as I did that when Harry got OTT at play time when he was a kit. I love the confused look on their faces when they notice there is a toy in their mouths :lol: .

damn I forgot to update this!
Lets see where I got to. . .

Okay I booked to get Stan neutered but my vet will not do it as he is so unfriendly and they cannot restrain him so they can put him under so I can't get him neutered. All of the exotics vets said the same, which sucks. . .

Stanley has his moments of being my 'friend' but they are only when I have food and only if I am giving him said food. He is now really big so when he decided he is not getting his own way he has temper tantrums and lashes out at me which is quite frankly terrifying! I try so hard and have done since I got him to make him my 'friend' but it just is not working.

Stanley now lives full time in Harry and Elspeth's 20ftx20ft enclosure which they do not use. He seems to like it out there which is nice. My Dad is always in there with him when he says he is feeding his parrots hehe. He still enjoys eating shellfish in his little pool most weekends and playing with his toys but the toys have become less important to him as he has gotten older and now he is more happy just to bask in the sun or play with water.

Still wish Stan would like me but I think the little bit of progress I had made with him was lost when he reached 'that' age and the vet would not give him the chop. . .

Oh well the main thing is that he is happy and healthy.

Ask the vet why he cant be gassed. Take as small a cat carrier as you can get him into. Then get a clear trash bag that the carrier can fit into. This way they can use the tube to pump isoflorene gas into the bag and he will fall asleep. At that point they can get a mask on him and do the deed. I find it strange they cannot figure this out. It is how mean cats are done every day! Oh well. Sometime when a vet doesnt *want* to do something they say they cant :twisted:

My daughter never got her Binxster fixed. And once he decided I wasn't THE ENEMY, it didn't seem to make any difference. Once he was a year old, he turned into one of those coons who wouldn't bite you even if you bit him first. His worst habit was that he really didn't believe that you should sleep until/unless he was. Until he decided I wasn't so bad, he was H on wheels to me, as in just walk up and bite me, hard, without provocation, and then run to mama (my daughter) for protection when I got mad. I personally wouldn't use Stanley as a breeder because I think that the tendency to be tame is a personality trait that is, to some degree at least, inheritable.

I shall enquire, that actually sounds a really good idea!
They have spayed my friends coon and a neuter is so much easier from what I have read so I see no reason why they wont if they will put him under. My friends coon is tame so I suppose she was much easier.
They sedated Rudi for his x-ray and he is not tame but I suppose a little fox is much easier to deal with then a big coon. . .

Don't worry Trefoil I have no intention of breeding coons. One is enough of a handful and I would be one of those breeders who takes back the animals people no longer want so when the babies got to 6 months old I would have SO many returns :roll: .

elina,

thanks for the update on stanley. I was wondering how he was making out..

I got a cat that was not friendly neurtered. but, I had to put him in a trap for some reason.

my vet will spay/neurter any type of animal. friendly or not.

if the vet uses injection, my vet will use a long pole to inject the animal in the cage.

If you do get stanley neurtered, it would take awhile for his mind to catch up with the neurter.
