My cat will not let me pick her up to carry her
My cat is great and loves to sit on my lap, but she will not let me pick her up to carry her. When I try to carry her the claws come out and she wiggles until she can get away.
I don’t think she associates being carried with any other unpleasant event. I don’t try this often because I don’t want to reinforce her concern, but I don’t know what to do to break her objection, or fear?
She is three years old. The first year I could carry her and then the resistance started.
