I have 2 netherland dwarf rabbits named Hoops and Yoyo. They are now about 4 and a half months old. In the beggining (for the first 2 months) they were so perfect together, cuddling, sleeping next to each other, grooming each other, not leaving each others side. When the hit about 3 and a half months old they started having huge fights which involved them literally bouncing off the walls of the cage. It was quite scary. The solution to this was to buy another cage and separate them. The reason for these actions occurring was obviously because of puberty, so about two weeks ago I had them both neutered, and they're pretty much all healed from surgery. Hoops has been doing great, but Yoyo, even before the surgery was just buck wild and taking lunges at every one and biting every one (breaking the skin). These actions are still occurring. Will this ever stop? And I am so scared that Hoops and Yoyo will never be able to stay in the same cage again and have the brother bond that they once had. I know it takes 2 weeks to 2 months for the effect of the neutering to take place (calming the bunny down etc) but I am just really scared that they won't ever be able to stay together again any thoughts?
