Whenever you pick up a rabbit, make sure you always support their hips and shoulders. A hand under their feet will function as a platform for them to push off from! NEVER SCRUFF A RABBIT! (Trust me. Not only is it uncomfortable for the bunny, but it also will not give you any sort of safe control.)
