Minnie has always been terrified of anyone touching her and literally dives out of the way. It has taken me quite a while to get her to relax when I rub her but she likes to be close to me now and has even started to give me kisses :lotsaluv: Today I was grooming her and she lay down so I turned her on her side and began to gently brush her all along her back, right down to her tail and she didn't jump up to run away :w**h**:she looked so relaxed and calm, it was a real breakthrough and SUCH a wonderful feeling for me. She is finally beginning to realise that there are healing hands and she is now safe.

It is great when they show a little joy at your hands brushing them instead of running and hideing good on you

That is a real turning point, not only means she trusts you but she knows you are in charge which is good as she can relax.
