Poor Barney! Since we "liberated" him from his nice, cosy home in the Pets At Home store at the weekend - where he was warm and dry and had the company of other male bunnies - he has been subjected to near constant rain and, today, a succession of thunder storms!
No wonder he is a bit reluctant about being handled - he probably wishes he was back at the store.
However, Barney and I did manage a bit of a break-through this evening as we had our first proper cuddle since he came home with Rachel and I.
Admittedly he wasn't 100 per cent relaxed all of the time, but Rachel claims that every so often he actually looked as though he was enjoying himself - so things continue to head in the right direction!
