Hi all. I've recently started the process of bonding. Boy/girl both fixed. We tried a 24/7 quicker bond approach and it failed. We are now doing a more slow introduction process and its going much better. Currently our buns are living in our laundry room separated by gate barriers. They can see and smell each other and cages mirror one another in every way. We have gotten to a point where we allow them individual time each day to separately free roam upstairs primarily in our loft area to get their binkys out and to also enforce our bond with our new girl and reinforce our existing bond with little guy who has been a little insecure due to the new bun. I have also utilized this to swap them between the two habitats in the laundry room after free time so they get more used to eachother's space and smells etc. We basically swap the buns between the 2 space daily. So far it really has been going so much better. Based on when i think they are ready, I plan to do their bunny dates in one of our bathrooms which is also a pretty neutral location. SO, here my question....assuming things go well and we progress and get to the point where bunny dates result well and we see they are pretty much bonded, where should they go next? Our male rabbit had free roam of the house prior with his main litter and overnight location in our upstairs loft. I have already laundered everything rabbit and plan to thoroughly clean the loft with vinegar etc. Should they always be kept in a pen type area? Will it ever be possible to house them back in our loft? Will they ever be able to safely free roam? I think it will be a while until we get to this point, but there seems to be a lack of instruction on what to do after they may have actually bonded? Hopefully we get there!
