    More treats! [​IMG] I sit with mine in the evening for awhile, between dusk and dark. I talk to them a lot too. It's actually a little intimidating when they all rush the gate.

    I would say pick them up against their will and pet the head and back...........let them know they can trust you. They will get used to it.......and hopefully look forward to it.
