    Confusion about bunny language

    I’ve been asking a lot of stuff but bare with me. I always stick my hand next to pickle so he can sniff me. Today he put his head under my hand and flattened on the floor. So I went to stroke his head and give him cheek rubs, after a bit I stopped and continued on with my day. I’ve been...

    Rabbit too 'mature' to give kisses.

    Anybody else have a rabbit who became less 'childish' and more 'mature' as they grew into adulthood? He used to lick me a lot as baby without wanting to be petted in return. Churro still happily greets me when he hasnt seen me in a while, running around me in circles (left to right and right...

    The best thing in the world

    I never force Tu Shen to be on me. I don't pick him up unless I absolutely have to, like clipping his nails. But this morning, Shen decided he wanted to show how much he loves me by climbing onto my chest and groom my shirt. It's the best feeling in the world, getting this much affection from my...

    I am in the process of bonding my two rabbits. An older female and a younger male. The male is fixed and the female is not. The bonding has been going well so far however, when the younger male grooms my older female he seems to be pulling too hard. I noticed this after I saw the female had a...

    Trying to mount, turns into a tornado?

    Hi- so after 2 months of bonding through an X pen, I have been reintroducing my two fixed bunnies after my female was spayed. They went 24 hours together free roaming with no fighting, lots of grooming, cuddling, and binkying, but last night my female started trying to mount my male since she is...

    Bunny ate my hair!

    My bun Bella was left out last night in my bedroom because she wanted to sleep on my bed. This happens a lot and sometimes she’ll sit and “groom” my face and nibble at my baby hairs....... but last night went a bit too far I woke up with a massive chunk of my hair gone! She’s managed to chew...

    Over a Year in our House, but Still Refuses Petting/Grooming

    I adopted Frost from the Humane Society over a year and a half ago. She was there because her previous owner (who had her for the first year of her life) was an animal hoarder. I believe that she was neglected. She was used, the day of adoption, for a Bunny Basics training class, where she was...

    Rabbit Handling - They HATE it

    I rescued two Holland lops a few months ago and were both fairly scared/shy rabbits. I don’t know their past at all, but what I do know is they HATE being handled. I’ve tried covering the eyes, blankets, holding them tightly so they don’t feel scared. You name it, but they will wiggle out no...

    New (and inexperienced) bunny owner here!

    Hello! So in the past few months I have sort of...ended up with a rabbit. It's a bit of a long story but basically I work at a nonprofit (on a farm) that works with at-risk girls and horses.

    Hi, I am fostering a pair of young rabbits as they went through the surgeries to get fixed. I had some very long petting sessions with the female especially now that she is recovering from her spay surgery and she even has taken the posture that shows she wants more pets. The male on the other...
