Ok, I must admit I'm a bit nervous. I have made Roscoe's neuter appt for this coming Friday. While I am so glad that he will get some relief from these raging hormones, I am nervous because of some of the sad spay/neuter death stories I've read on here.
Hubby and I were gone camping this weekend, so my daughter was taking care of him. She let him out to run around on Friday night, and said he was going crazy running around the living room, trying to climb over my rabbit-proofing fencing, and spraying and pooping all over the furniture. She plays with him all the time, so it's not like he was stressed out by a new person taking care of him. Oh - and he bit her toe pretty hard too.
So she confined him to his bunny room from Friday night until I got home Sunday afternoon. She spent time with him in his room, but didn't let him out anywhere else. I got home and immediately went up to hang out with him for a bit, and he was SO glad to see me, it was almost unbelievable. I laid down on the floor on my side and called to him and he came running over and was frantically licking my face all over and cuddled up against my chest and stuck his head under my chin and stretched out and let me cuddle him and stroke him for the longest time.
That is so not like him. I can groom him or pet him when he is all stretched out and mellow - but he doesn't cuddle. At least he never has before. After cuddle time, I took him outside to his playpen and let him have some outdoor time, which he enjoyed immensely. But he did spray the dog when the dog tried to lie down on the other side of the pen wall.
I am really looking forward to some of these behaviors mellowing out a bit.....
