Puff thinks my hands are food!

Postby alyxandpuff » Wed Jul 21, 2021 11:55 am

So, recently I’ve realized that she’s not scared of my hands at all. She just thinks they’re food. Which was funny at first but I’m not sure how to get her out of this habit? I can’t pick her up or handle her without her jumping thinking my fingers are worms. She’s never bit me but has licked me many times. Help?

It can be tough to rid them of that habit. If she isn't biting, it's probably not a big deal. You may want to avoid hand feeding for a bit to help her disassociate your fingers from food.
