ive had Pizza Pasta and Noodles for 1 year now and they are very anti-social with people. Their previous owners didn't handle them much at all and they are really scared. I want to handle them without freaking them out because I'd love to just be able to sit them in my lap without them getting frightened! Any advice?

Hi! Be patient and try to see and approach things from the perspective of a prey animal. With patience and persistence, you can bring them round, but it is likely a rather slow and very gradual process - although there is nothing like this special moment when you realise that you have won their trust.
