Last week Dortmund decided that he would be a free range rabbit. After falling off my bed three times, he took the plunge and jumped off. The first two nights I recaptured him in the evening but let him run around during the day. On Friday I just let him be and started to set things up for him on the floor. I have a few concerns. 1) most importantly — how long will it take for him to grow tired of his new freedom and come periodically to let me pet him. For the most part all he has done has been hide. I only see him when I feed him and occasionally when I get up to use the bathroom. I was sick this weekend and I could have used some nose snuggling and petting time. 2) is there a way to avoid stepping on rabbits? A couple times when he has ventured out from his various hiding spots I’ve almost tripped over the little fuzz ball. He seems to want to just scurry in between my feet while I try to walk.
