#33776 - 01/13/05 05:21 PM How do you all stand it????

Keeva loves to run around in my shirt but I can't stand those little nails tickling me all over! No matter how I try, I always end up stripping down yelling get her off in a laughing fit much (like if someone was tickling your ribs) I've tried keeping her nails short, wearing 2 shirts ( but she always manages to get down the second one eventually). I know she loves it and she doesnt bite ( might sneak up to groom my hair though on my neck) but I'm too ticklish to stand it! Any suggestions??

Haha I'm a really ticklish person, but for some reason it doesn't bother me. And I feel bad clipping nails too often because then they can't cling, and they don't really understand why they can't.

I use the nail-o-matic every couple weeks or so. I don' keep them too short for that reason. But short,long, or in between I can't stnad how bad it tickles! I've tried super hard to just grit my teeth and bear it but after a few mins. I fall apart and start laughing/crying uncontrollably and hubby has to come and get her off. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> I know its because she loves me and wants to be as close as she can and such and it breaks my heart that I can't seem to get over it enough to let her do it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shakehead.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" />

One of my sugar gliders used to always try to climb around inside my shirt, but I always took her out when she did that because I was too ticklish. But now she has learned to walk on my shirt so her fur is touching me instead of her claws. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/multi.gif" alt="" />

#33780 - 01/14/05 12:08 AM Re: How do you all stand it???? [Re: ]

My gliders like to climb up my pants leg and get right behind my knee, it takes all the restraint I have not to start shaking my leg and bouncing around <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/multi.gif" alt="" />. I still have found no good way to get them out, so I've been tucking my pants into my socks. Not the best fashion statement I've made but it works.

Try a long sleeved turtleneck under a t shirt, and tuck them both in. She won't be able to get down the turtleneck without a lot of effort and your cooperation. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Try keeping extra lotion on in that area. I've found that when my skin is dry, I tend to be more ticklish from light touches than if it's got lots of moisture.

#33783 - 01/16/05 08:55 AM Re: How do you all stand it???? [Re: ]

my glider does the same thing! but it only gets me when she plays in my hair on the bank of my neck... oh man that tickles <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

#33784 - 01/16/05 08:58 PM Re: How do you all stand it???? [Re: ]

Well Keeva and I have come to an understanding,lol. I started wearing my son's t-shirts ( which are super tight on me) then a big sweatshirt over it. She figured out I dont dance around as long as she stays on the t-shirt. Mommy lets her go anywhere on her she wants as long as she stays on the t-shirt. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> She has also learned to move slower while on me. Now she gets so comfortable, she will fall asleep and if I move I have to put my hand down there so she don't roll out onto the floor! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />
She has started prefering to sleep on me, than in any pouch! She actually looks forward to curling up on me chest, back, armpit or wherever she feels is the most comfortable every morning. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/agree.gif" alt="" /> I just start to get her pouch out now for bonding and that little head will pop out and and ZIP, down the shirt she goes!

That is so funny. My guy does the same thing. Don't you just love your little shirt divers. Beyond that, I would say to try the turtleneck. I am not very ticklish, but then again, my guy just jumps in and falls right asleep. He prefers to run rampant outside of my shirt. Good luck.
