Hi! My name is Kira and i adopted a lop from my local humane society in march. his name is ansel and he’s super outgoing, curious, and playful! He’s been absolutely wonderful and I love him to death! However, he was found abandoned in a neighborhood at around 9 months old and its very clear he didn’t get handled much when he was young. It took him a while to be comfortable being pet (he enjoys a good back scratch now) and he does NOT enjoy being picked up. I hate to stress him out so i’m hesitant to try and pick him up often but i know i’m going to need to be able to when i need to take him to the vet, move him, give him meds, etc. sometimes he’s fine with being picked up, but other times he’ll kick his way out of your arms. I’d like to know if anyone else has had experiences with rabbits that are not used to much human contact and if so, how did you guys gain their trust? what would the be the best way to go about getting him used to being handled, or at least to not be terrified of it? Thank you!!
