With my bun, i went quite a while without picking him up. My goal was to get him to hop up on my lap. I had to sit with him for a few weeks before he trusted me. Even then and now he hates being picked up. He has been with me now 7 months and he still trembles when i pick him up. And i often have to grab him when i have to pick him up to go to vet etc. But if he’s in his upper level of cage i can reach in and pick him up without any trauma to either of us. I kiss and snuggle him and put him down really quickly. I never hold him for long.
I had an ex pen attached to his cage so he could go in and out. It seems buns like things on their terms primarily. I would clean his cage when he was out.
Just be patient. It will pat pay off !!
