Two weeks ago, we adopted a female, spayed bun as a companion for our little Kimchi, who was neutered a couple of months ago now. Some of you may recall the story of how we became rabbit owners to begin with. We previously had no pets, save for an aquarium. While out at a brunch with some friends, one friend who is a social worker told us that she was fostering a rabbit that she had to rescue from a client who had been neglecting him. She showed us a picture and we were smitten. We were about to leave on vacation, so she agreed to keep him until we got back. When we returned, we went to pick him up and our friend told us, once we had arrived at her house, that she and her family had fallen in love with him and had decided to keep him. Since she had promised us "a white, dwarf rabbit" she went out and found a baby one, we think in a pet store. So while Kimchi was not truly a rescue, we thought he was when we agreed to take him. It turned out to be a special gift, because Kimchi has turned out to be such a bright light in our lives. He is a great rabbit, very mellow and yet spunky, with personality for miles. We love him so much! Well my wife is preparing to return to full time work, having concluded her graduate program. Since I also work long hours, we decided that it would be best for Kimchi if we were to get him a companion. Using this site and several books as resources, we read and studied the advice on the bonding process. I reached out to a legit rabbit rescue (Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation), and we corresponded via email for a couple of weeks. Finally, the big day came and we brought Kimchi to a "bunny dating" event, held by the LA Rabbit Foundation. Much to our delight, the lady bun we were most interested in was also at the event, all by her lonesome as it turned out (they had perhaps a dozen rabbits up for adoption, with volunteers sitting in the cages playing with them). Ellie was not a foster bunny, but an actual rescue from the shelter. They hit it off during the bunny dating - they were together for about three hours at this event - and we brought Ellie home that day! We kept them in separate pens for the first day, but it was obvious that they longed to be together. So after a "neutral territory" meeting in our bathroom for about an hour, we allowed them to play together (supervised) in the bunny-proofed living room where we keep Kimchi's exercise pen (his permanent "cage"). They worked out their heirarchy issues, and after the first couple of days, there was no more head-humping. We diligently monitored them and observed no animosity, biting or fights. Happily, they never did get to the "fighting" stage - not even the "play fighting" of the dominance-establishing exercise. We are delighted that they truly seem to enjoy one another's company ("love"? perhaps?). They are both grooming each other, and binkies and dashing around are frequent and exuberant. I do have a couple of questions as we are new to the multiple-rabbit game: 1. Ellie has not yet taken to eating greens. She does not seem to be interested in anything we've offered in that respect. She is eating well - hay and some pellets - and drinking, and thankfully the pooping and urination have been fine. We have been giving Romaine lettuce, as that is what they said she had received at the shelter. We have seen her completely destroy the lavender plant we had out on the patio (for the buns!), so that is good - she at least ate all of that plant! Any tips on how to get her eating greens? 2. Now that we have 2 buns, how can we monitor her pooping specifically? Or Kimchi's for that matter? We have 2 litter boxes in their now-expanded communal X-pen (and 2 water bowls, and 2 food dishes, 2 sets of toys, etc.), thought they seem to share everything. So far the only way we've been able to monitor either one is that she is still in the "poop wars" phase of crapping everywhere (inside the pen, not anywhere else thankfully), while Kimchi remains the housebroken gentleman he has always been. Advice is welcome here as well. Now for some pictures! First picture is from the LA RF website; this is where we first saw her. Following pictures show them dining together, her grooming him, him grooming her, and other cute poses.
