Default Perseverance paid off

My boy Draco has decided he loves his head scratches off me. Weeks and weeks of being bitten and hissed at but he has finally succumb to it and now he just can't get enough

Congratulations!
It's a pretty big deal when a tiel allows you to touch them behind their head. This was such a cute video, thanks for sharing!

AWWWW! That is so sweet! Bennie at first resisted scritches, too. Then one day in mid-resist, he suddenly seemed to realize. "Hey, this actually feels good!" But he really is not into scritches that much. He'll let me do it a little, then pulls away.

How sweet! Joey didn't want anything to do with scritches at first either. One day he started allowing only the top of his head scratched through the bars of the cage. Then after a while he offered me a cheek and the back of his head, but ONLY through the bars. One day he finally decided to allow the top of his head only, when he was out of his cage. After a few days of that, he became a total scritch junkie.

It really is such a joy when you make the breakthrough, and the trust is there.

Draco would only let me scratch him with my nose hahahaha then one day while he was in a scratch daze I used my finger and the rest is history. He still likes a nose scratch but he's happy with any. He's a real mamas boy.
