    Rabbit bonding help

    Hi. I’m in the process of bonding my rabbits. It all seemed to be going well. They groom each other, share food and water happily, sleep next to each other. However the younger one who is the dominant one doesn’t allow the other rabbit in the litter tray if she is in there. She bullies her away...

    Angry bunny after interacting with bonding bunny

    My bunny Cosmo I guess jumped over his pen in the other room because he was out and I hadn’t let him out for the day at this point. And when I opened the door he slipped through and out into the area where I was letting Stella my other bunny run. The two interacted for a moment and she tried to...

    Bonding my bunnies and not sure if this is normal

    I just picked up my new bunny Cosmo, he's about five. And my current bunny who's a female Stella is about seven. I got him home and set his Carrier outside of her cage so they could see each other and then moved Cosmo into his pen. I let Stella out and she went to the enclosure Cosmo was in and...

    1 Rabbit Stressed during Rebonding

    Hi everyone, So I am rebonding my two male rabbits after needing to seperate them for about 2 weeks (Rory had GI Stasis and ear infection) and their bond got broken. I am beginning by putting them in a tall bin for about 5-15 minutes twice a day. I cover the bin so there is still open space for...

    Re-Bonding Rabbits

    Hey everyone, so I have two 8-year-old lionhead rabbits (male, neutered) who were bonded, but the last month one of them (Rory) got GI stasis and a possible ear infection, so they had to be separated while Rory recovered since the other bunny (Brim) was more stressful that comforting for Rory...

    Weird bonding behaviour

    I'm trying to bond a neutered male and unspayed female. (I know that's not ideal, she's not quite old enough yet). So the female keeps putting her head under the male's butt or middle, sometimes putting her whole head under him and even out the other side! What does it mean?

    I have a neutered male and spayed female who have “shared” my room in separate cages next to each other since late December therefore they are very awake of each others presence. I introduced them on Tuesday and in the beginning there was a bit of chasing and nipping but it only happened once or...

    My bonded pair both have herpes virus, confirmed by vet. As I'm sure you know, this is a lifelong ailment.
