My bun has started thumping in the morning... VERY early and extra loud. I share a room with my bun because we have a small house. I'm just wondering why is he doing this? He never has before. Could it be because he's getting older?

He probably just heard something that he had not heard before.

He's acting really strange, I have him out of his cage now and he is just hopping around and sniffing like he's really alert. I don't know what he could have heard or what's scaring him though bc I was sleeping and everyone in the house is sleeping still o: he's never acted this weird before.

Hi, Just a little aside. First, I like your pretty signature, but it looks a wee bit too big for the siggy size limits. I have a fast resizing software program preset for siggy size, so if you don't mind, I am inserting a resized siggy for your. Just save mine and replace yours with it, and it should be OK after that. Thanks!

Thumping could mean a lot of things. Cinnamon Thumps when he is trying to Binky. they Thump having rabbitude, Mr. Hopper thumps to tell you he wants something, like water food, attention. It could mean a lot of things. just try to be patient and keep your eyes and ears open to his communication to you. oh and Raven Thumps when she wants our of her cage.

I definitely agree with BullRider -- it can mean a MILLION things -- you just have to watch your bun and learn their way of communicating with you. My girl bun, Sidney, has only thumped twice since we've met her. The first time was when she met her bonded buddy Fleury and then once again when she met her 2nd bonded buddy Tanger! Well.. last night we were running the vacuum while we cleaned the bunny condo (we do this every week) and out of nowhere she decided she just WASN'T putting up with that darn thing anymore and thumped her way around the dining room until it stopped. She was NOT a happy bun. With a few pets and loving attention she finally stopped her brattitude.

I figured out what it was I think and it's kind of silly lol.
My sister got me balloons for my birthday and I had them floating in my room and a few were starting to sink, and I guess that's what was freaking him out because as soon as I took them out of my room he was fine

It was really freaking him out I guess LOL because his thumping was so loud my mom could hear it downstairs. She asked me if I was jumping in the morning. O.o

Mine like to thump if they disapprove of the music we play or if someone sneezes or gets the hiccups LOL.

Finn thumps when I put him in his cage for time out. Then he sulks and refuses to come out after his time out is over. They're like moody teenagers >_<
