Yup. Skittles was found by the side of the road when he was about three weeks old; his mother had been hit by a car and killed. So he was fostered by a vet tech, which included bottle feeding for a few weeks. Now, he loves to be cradled on his back like a baby, and he drools when he's being held, especially that way.
