Although he does not like being cornered or hugged by kids, and lots of noise and motion worry him, my big furry twelve year old baby has been inately gentle with kids most of his adult life. Six years ago he was following this little guy's older sister around, giving her kisses. Now it's nine month old cousin's turn to get Nikki snuffles and kisses! He did not mind. Amazingly my cousin pictured here was born 35 weeks premature. He's doing great though!
