|Thanks again for the responses : )
Just an update, I think Toro is making some progress. I've begun standing up while holding him after he's climbed into my arms to give him a sense that it's safe to be held above ground. Also, when I need to move him off of me, I have started picking him up ever so slightly so he'll move; that way he's being picked up from a safe place. Maybe I'm over-analyzing a bit, but he hasn't freaked out about it yet! He's a very sensitive kitty in a lot of ways (what some would term 'skittish'), I'm learning, and seems to need an inordinately long time to adapt to new things. But so, so darn sweet : )
The next step is getting him used to being actually picked up and if my attempts don't work, then I'll prolly give the clicker a shot!
Happy weekend, everyone!
