Is there a way to encourage bunny kisses or do some bunnies kiss naturally and others just aren't kissers.

Some bunnies love licking, but a lot of bunnies rarely, if ever, lick their humans. There's no way to really make your bunny want to go up and lick you besides gaining their trust and hoping that you have a really sweet rabbit. If you really want to feel bunny licks, you could always just smear a little honey or fruit juice on your hand and offer it to your rabbit.

I think some bunnies are naturally kissers and others aren't. Also, some bunnies like to kiss some people and not others. Otto will mostly only kiss my husband, though he will kiss me if I show him a treat first, then ask for the kiss. I wish he'd do it without the bribe, but oh well! The first time we got him to do this, we held a treat in front of his nose, then pulled it away quickly and put our own nose right in his face and he licked! We were pretty surprised because we weren't sure if he would bite (we hadn't had him very long) but it soon turned into a favorite game. He loves giving kisses now (if you have food for him especially). He's never licked other parts of our bodies like other bunnies though - no foot or hand licking - just noses.

Hannah has never licked, ever. We've only had her for 5 months, so she may lick as she gets more comfortable with us, but she's a pretty dominant bunny so I doubt she'll ever feel the need to kiss us. We're the ones who should be grooming her, in her opinion.

Many bunnies also have a lick reflex. I haven't found it on Hannah, but we can rub/scratch Otto's bum, above his tail, and he'll start licking anything around him, including people. He's still more likely to lick my husband than me, and when I do it he'll usually just lick himself or furniture rather than having to lick me. Haha. But finding the lick reflex can be a good way to get your bunny started licking you, and then you can praise him and he might decide licking you is actually fun.

Yeah, that picture is in high demand around work - my husband's friends at the office keep bugging me to send it so they can blow it up and hang it in their cubes. Hahaha. He would kill me!

Bunny Kisses..


Kisses!

 

Some bunnies are just kissers, some just aren't. I get a lot of kisses after giving pets, other times, I just get them because she feels like giving kisses to mommy.

I heard that we humans don't taste yummy

lol Brittany, I think that's WHY some bunnies kiss us.

I wish my bunny would give me a kiss. Instead, I just get a nip. Actually, he bit me like 4 or 5 days ago and you can still see where his little teeth sank in.

I think that she wants me to smell like HER

I like rabbit kisses. Very sweet, and dries fast. No cardboard tongue too or drool

Actually, one of my friends made what I thought was an apt comparison... he said their tongues felt like warm silk.

Momo loves to kiss my nose, and sometimes I worry about when she last ate cecals...

I've watched Otto eat his cecals and then groom Hannah. She doesn't seem to mind, but it grosses me out!!
