as most of you know, Rini and Usako are sisters who became unbonded after they were spayed back in 2004. REALLY unbonded.

anyways,, Rini was having her free-range time in one of the living rooms, and i had just moved Usako back from the big x-pen into the top door of her condo and went to the other room. i failed to see that the side door of Usako's condo was not latched. Luckily the 2 foster buns were secure in their x-pen (which is located in the kitchen so there is lava (tile) that they will not cross.

20 seconds i heard chaos and hauled ass back in the room to break up Usako's blitz attack on rini. it only lasted a second, but Usako managed to get in a really bad chomp on Rini's back. it was hard to see at first because rini's fur is so thick, and for a fight between 2 rexes, the amount of fur strewn about the floor was negligible. but the next day there was a lot more dried blood and i could see that it needed a vet's opinion.

 

the vet shaved the area, cleaned it out, and told me he removed a 'flap' (yeowch). it went thru most of the skin layers, but luckily no muscle damage. these two will NEVER be bonded.

boy I can understand that. Nibbles got loose one day when Blue was out and Nibbles had three chunks of skin gone. ARGH. tough sometimes, accidents happen sometimes. I am glad to hear that your bun is ok.

Very very familiar with this. Back when there were 6 buns here (a quartet and a duo) somehow Reno and Kylie (I think it was Kylie) managed to be out at the same time. It was not a good scene. Fur flying everywhere. Kylie bit a hole through Reno's ear which got snagged on something as she frantically ran around and ripped. Took her to the vet who tried repairing the tear, but it didn't take. Ended up having to get the ear amputated.

Awww....that looks painful. Could have been worse, though. Hope it heals up soon.

I have one girl and she's territorial and insanely aggressive around other rabbits. She hates other rabbits. I can't imagine trying to bond her to another girl.
