I had to change his cage today, and he let me pick him up/hold him with some gardening gloves on and didn't have a heart attack when I was petting him. He also felt comfortable enough to eat in front of me, even with my hand still in the cage. So, progress. Still hissy/swatty, of course (thus the gloves), but a bit less terrified. And I didn't get grumbled at today.

I think the reason he's yowling so much is because he's in a crate, as today he braved approaching me in the hopes that he could come out. We may set him up in the bathroom, especially now that we know he doesn't panic at the sight of dogs. I need to make sure he understands the concept of a litter box first - he's been doing alright, but not 100% yet. I moved him to a smaller crate today so he could be more portable and we could bring him inside and let him explore a closed off room if needed.

He has a hidey house in his crate, for sure. I also have picked it up off the floor and have it resting on top of the large crate and covered on three sides with a blanket, to try and help him feel more secure.
