Okay so i know ive only had ninx for a week. But sje crabs at everything and she was finally calming down to where she only would crab if your hand came in the cage. She would lunge but never bite. I just started the bonding pouch and now she crabs at my voice or even the smallest movement. She is currently on my chest in my shirt in the bonding pouch. How do i get her to stop crabbing so much? I understand its only been a little over a week but neeko only crabbed for the first few days and that was only a couple times. Any advice?

She will come around. To her your a giant monster that wants to eat her lol, she hasnt learned to trust you yet but your doing everything right by taking it slow with her. When she was here she didnt act like that but she didnt see her parents act like that toward me so she trusted me,now she has no mommy and daddy and just is terified.
Try the licky treats well i would try the yogies first sence she lunges at you when she relizes you give her yummy food and all u want in return is to pet her shell come out of her shell.
Also she needs to hear your voice more so she not scare of it,go to her cage threw out the day and just talk to her or sit on the phone by her cage,that should help with your voice.
I hope everything works out i miss her so much.Does any1 else have any more advice.

I had two crabby girls when I first got them. They crabbed for months I tried all the bonding stuff. They did calm down and not be so vocal but still was very scared. I put a very sweet boy in with them and both the girls totally calmed down. I believe the boy was very sweet and confident in people and he showed them it was ok.

I agree with the not alone. Not only does she not have her Mommy and Daddy she has to be by herself. Thats something she's never had to do before.

When she crabs in her bonding pouch try looking at her. This way she knows it's you talking to her. She needs to put 2 and 2 together. My Stella was like that. Poor baby had never been handled. Was taken away from her parents and sent to me. Thank goodness she had her brother Ozzie. Those were the smallest gliders ever trying to eat me. LOL!

Make sure you keep to your normal routines and sounds. Use the dishwasher, washer dryer, vaccume, blender, stove, timers, alarm clocks, fans, cooking, cleaning... This will help her learn that these noises are nothing to be afraid of.

Mine slept through the vaccume in their room Saturday. They've heard it before and they know its not a giant Suggie Munching Dragon LOL..

When she is in her pouch on you, move and talk like you normally would. This will get her used to you, your voice, and your movements.

Yes, she will crab, but you can not keep everything hush hush just to keep her from crabbing. Then every little noise will scare the living daylights out of her.

Nope, move! Part of them trusting you is learning that your movements are not going to hurt them.

When we do tent time, I tell my son to just move like he normally would while playing with them and the toys. They are skittish, but it gets better with every tent time.

They need to know that every time you move it is not aggression. You're just moving.

Wiggle, scratch and itch, stretch your legs out, go to the bathroom, go get a snack. When she starts to crab hold her tight against you and tell her "Its Okay", "you're fine", or whatever comfort phrase you want. The tighter the better.

It's ok to do this as long as you pet the outside of the bag and talk to her.

I had one that came in very crabby. I would hold her firmly against my chest in a pouch and massage slow circles on her, she came around.

She started purring after about 2 weeks.
