Arabella is letting me pick her up!!!
I have been working slowly w/her everynight, and patting her and slowly trying to pick her up. Last night she started letting me pick her up from the behind, as long as she didn't see me attempt to pick her up, she was fine, and once she would realize I had her she would squirm. She had ample oppurtunity to bite me, but she did not.
Then today, I worked with her some more and now I am able to pick her up when she sees me, but she still squirms a little. We bought her a run about ball today and I picked her up and put her in it. And she kept running up to us in it staying by our feet and looking up to us like to say "Thank you".
And now I am noticing when I am doing stuff around her cage she looks at me and is curious of what I am doing and is not as nervous when I talk to her, and she is letting me pat her more. I am so happy her and I are starting to bond.
