Well, I think I can confidently say that Merlin and Sasha are definitely bonded now. It's been a month living together, and there have been no fights. Some chasing, but nothing serious. Merlin has come round to the idea and is actually quite happy to give Sasha head grooms these days. (Yay!) They cuddle a lot too, which is so nice to see. Sasha is quite independent, so I wouldn't say they're inseparable BFFs yet, but I'm happy with where we are. Funnily, Merlin's become "the Rosebun", following her around, always the timider one. We have a balcony and Merlin frequently stands anxiously at the border wanting to go out on it, you can just tell that he wants to, but he would never dare unless Sasha went out first. She also has him beat by a loooong shot on escapism, wire-chewing and making mama poke around under the couch for ages. Oh Merlywurls, he used to be my bold troublemaker. But Sasha is just a handful of devilry. I ordered some locally-produced pellets the other day, 30% fibre and lots of nummy good stuff like dandelion and rosehip in them, only to have it roundly rejected by both bunnies! Sigh. I'm a bit concerned, actually. Sasha is normally picky with food but Merlin isn't, and he's also shown less enthusiasm towards his pellets and veggies recently. He is so thin - he has always been bony even during his piggy eats-everything days, but as long as he was eating healthy amounts I'd try not to worry. But if he's slowing down his food intake, how emaciated is he going to get? I'm trying to graduate and Merlin getting ill is the last thing I need right now. EAT MERLIN EAT.
