First came Smudge, we had her "altered" as we didn't want a hormonal bunny with all the reprocusions that that has. Bit more research and my love of lops and we soon got Frosty a few months later. We had him done so that his hormones are less of an issue. So both were neutered, both eventually bonded and bunny bliss ensued. Lots of love for months and months.
Cookie will be "altered" as soon as she is old enough to remove her hormonal urges.
Frosty isn't the most affectionate bunny, though he will occassionally lick Smudge if she pushes him. Seeing as Smudge adores attention and lots of love we made the decision to get another bunny (another female). Hence along came Cookie.
We had issues bonding them, but after weeks spent in the bathroom together, on their own, etc.. shampooing the carpets in the bunny room, descenting everything, getting new toys and loads of other stuff, we had them all cuddled up and licking each other.
So we put them all in the bunny room and went to bed to sleep (worried). Everything was fine, woke up and they were cuddled up. Smudge seemed in heaven with another bunny to lick and Cookie was licking her so all was happy. This is how things were for almost a month.
Recently though Frosty seems to have taken a strong dislike for Cookie. At times if she goes near him he charges her and growls and grunts. We have had to intervien one or two times...
The things that don't make sense:
Frosty and Cookie will happily feed from the same bowl and drink the same water.
Frosty and Cookie will cuddle up with each other, even sharing the same box to flop in at times.
Frosty will lick Cookie's head or ears if she nuzzles him.
