One of my boys, Pierre, is anti-cuddly. I've only had him since Dec so I'm sure he's still trying to figure me out. I made a little progress in that I was able to pet him as I was giving him food or maybe get a couple scratches in while I'm playing with him. But now, the only time I can pet him is at night. And he stays on alert and will dart if he thinks I'm getting to close.
I ended up reversing any progress I was making with him because I had to pick him up a couple times. One, because he was having wet stools for a while that I needed to clean off his backside. Then another time I though there was something wrong with one of his eyes so I needed to grab him to investigate. As a result he's lost some of the trust I had gained.
But I give him his space and don't try to force anything in the hopes that he'll come around again eventually. My biggest worry right now is when it's time to take him to the vet for his rabies booster. I have until Aug but I'm already stressed about how I'm going to catch the little stinker.
