yeah pipkin is still attacking me. havent tried to feed him out of my hand since your last bit of advice, and i wash my hands before going near him. he will let me stroke him a few times then he will lunge and nip. but as soon as i sit down on the floor he climbs up on my knee and cuddles into the crook of my arm. i'm getting very mixed signals. he doesnt do it to my husband or anyone else just me. but its really starting to hurt now. is there anyway to discourage this? i've tried squealling to let him know its hurting me but he takes no notice. hes not scared of me. or else hed go for my feet as well, he just tries to climb up my leg. its just my hands he goes for. but then he'll start licking them. he actually grunted at me yesterday when he went for my hand. its not like he doesnt get handled when he isnt bitting me he sits in my lap and watches tv while i stroke him or curls up in my wool beside me when i'm knitting.
