My bunny doesn't like to be pick up as well, I guess because I don't always pick him up. He is my first bunny, and at the beginning I don't know how to handle him, so I didn't want to force him. but now he just doesn't like it at all. Like Jess said, I did pet him before I want to pick him up, but as soon as I put put both hand on him, he walk backwards. and look like scared of being handle. as soon as I pick him up, he would try to escape, which he always could, because i don't held him tight. I tried to pick him up and sit on the sofa and put him on my laps, but as soon as I set him down, he fleed. Can someone please tell me what can I do?? I understand that they are not the type of animal like to be handle, but at least I don't want him to escape as soon as I pick him up. Thank-you!
