She thought I was tuna. No, it didn't hurt. It's interesting to know the set of chompers she's working with, LOL.

My fingers are kinda pink like tuna, so I understand the mistake. :D

I immediately held her again, this time with tuna, which she loves, and she's happily hand feedable now. Only took a few weeks. :msgreen: :wink:

I'm so sorry to hear that. :cry:

Well, George really did think my finger was tuna. She probably thought: why else would she be holding me?

So she's off tuna, but I gave her a little pink salmon today. Then I brought her veggies. I enjoy hand feeding her. Cute little thing was moving her head around the green lettuce to go for my pink/beige fingers, LOL! So cute! So I just let the lettuce float.

Times like this I'm reminded that even though she's got strong preferences about what she likes and does not like, she's still just a little baby :msgreen: Awww...
