I need some advice please, tonight, Grund went for DD (18 month old toddler). Me and DD were in the front room and I had my back to DD as I was moving the fire guard, grund wandered in just as I turned around and stood betwen me and DD, I didn't see exactly what she did (because she was on the other side of grund, they were right in front of me, I was facing them) but grund suddenly yelled and snapped round at DD, not just 1 snap but over and over like he was trying to get hold of her. It's a miracle he didn't. I hauled him away from her and she was screaming and crying. He didn't get her, that I am sure of, but I'm certain he meant to.

I am very careful with their interaction, DD is NEVER left alone with him, interaction is very closely supervised and any time she does something she isn't meant to (pulls his fur/ear etc, she is told 'NO' and placed on the naughty step).

I just don't know what to do. I really haven't got the time to be sorting out a situation like this, my brother is in intensive care after his step brother tried to stab him to death on saturday and I'm going back and forth to hospital every day to visit him. Grund already chooses to spend the majority of his day upstairs out of the way, he only wants to come downstairs in the evenings really. He seems fine, not in any pain or anything so I don't think there's anything physically wrong with him.

What should I do?

Update from the rescue lady, Sprocket went off with his fosterers happy as anything. I miss him sad

I'm so sorry.

Maybe it's for the best while you get through things with your brother and take a breather.

How is your brother doing?
