So I'll start with a positive update both my rabbits seem to now be peeing in the littler box, still pooing anywhere. But now that they're peeing in the box they can get some stuff to sleep on and in. :)

Ash is also now excepting pets not coming up for them but isn't running away as much as a hole. I think she may always just be a very jumpy rabbit but she is dong so much better.


On to the main question about Twix past off what I was told on here I believe shes being mean to my other pets. I have a video to confirm and if I'm right about her being mean I would like to know if there's anything I can do to make her ok with the other animals.

All that happened before the start of the video is Nero jumping up on the couch. Twix then ran over and dd this. She also does this to the dogs if they come up to the couch. She'll et so close to the edge of the couch I'm scared she will slip off trying to attack the dogs. She does so on the ground to.

She is just being territorial. Is she spayed? Spaying her should solve the problem.

Oh yes. She is definitely telling the cat she's the boss. She's not being mean in that sense. It's just how rabbits behave when establishing territory and hierarchy. Spaying won't necessarily solve this type of behavior because it is natural rabbit dominance behavior and not just hormonal behavior.

Thank you both for the reply. I hope she puts them in there place and stops then. I don't know if it works like that though. I know with cats when we get a new one they sort pecking order then get along. She scares the animals attacking them like that but doesnt seem to hurt them. Only big problems with is is one of my dogs sees it as her trying to play and I have to keep telling him to ignore her.
