    Maureen, I just skimmed through the post. I'm going to say that since he was shivering, he was obviously cold and maybe the weight of the blanket (it's a heavyweight) just agitated him a bit, and he was kicking out because of that.

    I'll try warming up his muscles to see if that makes a difference!

    If nothing else I'm sure he'd appreciate the rub down
    Did anyone mention static build up on the blanket? That can cause irritation too.

    Nope, no one did.

    Didn't think there would be anything since it was stored.

    I know that if you criss-cross pocos straps under his belly to where it will touch his sheath he starts cow kicking. So I don't cross them at all.

    I could see him doing that if I had them crossed, but they were just on his right side, hanging down. Once I got everything connected, he didn't kick out again.
