When Kiki and Koko moved in with us they were of course scared out of their minds because they were only two months old! It was hard to make them eat from their bawls and we would fallow them around with food so that they would eat. We tried to get them to eat some treats from our hands but Kiki would be brave enough and come close to the hand, smell it and walk away. Koko on the other hand would not even come close. The further away she was, I guess the safer she felt. It took her a while to actually come. We would place the treats on the floor so she would actually attempt to eat them. This did not last long, and within a week they were on top of us and they were fully in charge.
