I have a 7 year old mini lop male named Hopkins that has been neutered (white/calico). My fiancé and I have had him for many years and felt he would love to have a friend, so we adopted Fiona from a local shelter in mid March (brown bunny). She has been spayed and we believe she is a mini lop as well. We kept them separate for a few weeks to make sure she was not sick and then began the introductions in early April. Hopkins has always been very curious about her and even opts to lay near her cage and has never shown any signs of aggression. However Fiona has always shown signs of aggression towards Hopkins. We have done fear bonding, then have gone to the bath tub, followed by putting them both in a small cage in a neutral area. We felt we were making progress, but Hopkins began to mount Fiona at one point and since then Fiona has shown far more aggression. Neither of them grunt, but Fiona nips him so much and he's beginning to run from her. We are beginning to feel defeated and do not want to put them both under too much stress for too long - we have done what was suggested online and what feels right but do not seem to be making any progress. PLEASE, any advice would be so greatly appreciated.
