I mean, i don't want to make an appointment too early and i don't want to stress my Little Boy either, so i was just wondering. With Musti, we went in when his hormones were unbearble, at about 6 months or so...
Sitting in a smaller space with him helped somehow, he decided to use me as a lookout post once. While i was reading a book to him in a mellower tone compared to yesterday, He threw his iddy biddy baby moustache in my face, hehe... He nudged my hand and nipped me. His nips are kinda soft so i guess it's just curiousity if i will respond to it/"what substance are you, hooman?" He's a little hooligan that hid under these eurostands/racks whatever? And i had to look for him. That iddy biddy booger is more curious than i initially thought. He also decided it would be nice and cool to chill on the doorstep...When you are sitting with your bun I would suggest doing it in a small area like a bathroom or inside a pen, the smaller the area the better. It makes it so your rabbit can't hop away to avoid you. So this gives it a better chance of your rabbit getting to know you and getting used to you. But then you also need to not force things and let your rabbit approach you and decide when he is ready for you to pet him. I would also suggest using a pet carrier to transfer him places so you can minimize the times you have to pick him up. Lure him in with a small treat or gently scoot him in. You are trying to build trust, and picking up a rabbit that detests being picked up, will affect it learning to trust you.
Hang in there Catlyn. I'm sure he'll come around to like you in time. You are a great bun mom. Just like children, all animals have their own personalities.Thank you for the tip! Sure, he is frankly extremely timid and fights every interaction he can. But still, as all people are different, each rabbit is too, so i can't go comparing him with how friendly and accepting Musti was on day 3 with us interacting with and picking him up. He really was a sweetheart, a curious adventurous speedy digger who bumped me for attention on day 5 and allowed petting on day 2, he'd even lay down for it. I guess Little boy is just not as friendly with humans as Musti was.
Thank you! It means so much tl me when there are numerous people who see and care!Hang in there Catlyn. I'm sure he'll come around to like you in time. You are a great bun mom. Just like children, all animals have their own personalities.
I'm so sorry to hear about your other rabbit. I know from seeing your posts that you did all you could for him. * hugs
