    Hi,

    I’m hoping someone can help. We have two rabbits who don’t live together yet (separate rooms). I can’t bond them yet as I’m saving to get our doe spayed.

    The other day our buck bit me hard after I went straight from her to him. Since then I’ve been showering in between seeing them (crazy but it really hurt when he bit me).

    Tonight I thought I’d try again and see if he’d be okay but he went to bite me again. I was more prepared this time so moved out the way and left the room.

    Has anyone had this before? Hoping someone has some advice for me as I don’t have time for four showers a day!!

    I should add that he’s the sweetest rabbit and has only been like this since our doe arrived. She will hopefully be spayed in December.

    He is neutered already but she is not. I don’t want to bond them until she’s been spayed in case I can’t bond them again after her op. Thank you
