Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

Has Schnuggles always acted this way or is this newly developed since the onset of blindness and diabetes?

What protocols have been taken, if any, to alert him that he's about to be touched by someone?

Does he have any place he can be where no one touches or disturbs him?

Does growling occur beforehand or does he simply bite once touched?
