Hello everyone my name is Robyn, I'm 18 and I got my first bun for my birthday on the 24th.  I keep her in my room with me and she's already realised that rattling her cage in the morning will wake me up and ultimately get her fed!

My little mini lop doe is called Belle and she's ten weeks today.  She's been home with me for nearly two weeks now and she seems to be settling in okay.  At first she was really timid and just sat in her litter tray all day but now she actually uses her litter tray and has started getting a little curious!  When I'm in my room I open my cage and let her come and go as she pleases but now she's getting braver she likes to try and get at her food bags!  I caught her taking a little nibble on the carpet last week but she's not done it since so hopefully I've nipped that one in the bud!  (She's quite naughty though so I doubt it).  She doesn't mind being stroked or brushed and at first she didn't mind a little hold but now when I pick her up she just wriggles as much as she can.  I think she just needs some more time to get used to me after all it's only been two weeks.  I've added a couple of photos I've taken of her so far and I think you'll all agree that she is quite a little sweetheart!

And today after I set up her new fan she decided to just relax.

aww she is cute!!! Baby is our mini lop and she doesn't mind being pet but getting picked up is the end of the world with her. she was just skin and bones when we got her, but she is doing better. she went from about 1/2 a lb to about 4 and is healthy and happy with her bunny husband Blue (Flemish Giant LOL)

Belle is absolutely adorable! My little girl Quinn was really irritated about being picked up in the beginning when I got her but she's calmed down considerably since I've been working with her by picking her up twice a day and then rewarding her after I put her down. It seems to be working! Welcome to BB, and hope to see you around!

You're welcome! Oh and another idea--Quinn really hates being picked up directly from the floor, but is much calmer about being picked up off a chair, the couch or from the top of a box. I don't know if Belle would be the same way, but it has been a great way to work with my bun on being more comfortable with being picked up, and maybe it might work for you, too.

Welcome to BB! Belle is super adorable!

Youre in Scotland? That's awesome. My dream is to visit Scotland and England. I absolutely love history and would love to see all the historic places!

she is so precious!

a lot of bunnies will never like being picked up. my little guy wesley loves getting pet anywhere - tummy, rump, ears, paws - but he just won't tolerate getting picked up. it is scary to most rabbits. i don't pick him up unless i have to. he gets very annoyed when I do.

Lindsay - yeah Belle has started lying down beside me and letting me rub her ears and stuff so she does like me, just not being picked up. I've stopped trying now because if she's a happier bunny without the stress of being picked up, that's how it's got to be
