Captain likes to snuggle. Captain does not like to be confined. There is a delicate line between the two.
So he hates being picked up. He hates being held in anyway that makes him feel like he can’t escape. He likes to crawl into tiny spaces but freaks out if he thinks he can’t get out. He hates the vet (me too, buddy) because she tries to hold him still. He hates being washed or brushed or picked at in any way.
But he LOVES snuggling. He likes to crawl under blankets or pillows. He loves to have a human arm wrapped around him. He used to curl up in the crook of my arm every night to sleep in our old house. And if I’m on the couch, he wants to lay on my belly and stretch out, preferably under a blanket.
