He was a bit wiggly in my lap. I helped him find the spot he felt most comfortable in, but the process of getting there involved my offering some quick snug holds, as the photos show. If Jer-Jer liked my hold, he sat still and sometimes even sighed with relaxation. If he didn't like my position and his position, he would re-start a wiggle, at which point I changed my touch also. The goal is to help him find his comfortable place with me.
