One night he came to me and stood while I stroked and made a fuss of him. Something he had never done before. He hasn't repeated it again yet but we live in hope.
Also on his morning walks - which both myself and the LOTH have been partaking of - Monkey has been really excited and has added a few little jumps and spins to the early part of the walk - all without any sudden noises making him jump.
We did think that maybe it was the fact that two of us were there and he wasn't sure which of us had control so he was trying to see who had the lead.
However, today's walk was a solo affair as the LOTH had to take the GOTH to work and Monkey still did the bouncing.
We now have our fingers crossed that we may be seeing a new-found sense of fun and that Monkey is beginning to relax with us.
PS. Don't tell Monkey - but we are taking him on holiday soon and he will have to get used to another set of surroundings for a while.

Obviously they will all be taken from the rear so as not to frighten little children
