As some of you may know, Peppy is my girlie that lives with me and Remi is the family bun-overlord who stays with my parents. When I go back to visit, usually over school breaks, I take Peppy with me and she gets the upstairs cordoned off for her (Remi hardly goes up there), and both are pretty content.
The problem, though, is that Remi is a very territorial bunny and can be quite aggressive in "defense". I'm pretty sure myself and every piece of clothing I own is covered in a fine layer of Peppy hair, and Remi does not appreciate this one bit! He sees me as an intruder and tries to attack me, even breaking skin once with a bite - it would have been worse if I didn't instinctively jerk my hand away. Peppy, on the other hand, has never shown aggressiveness toward another bunny, even in her own territory.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to improve this situation? Would it be a good idea to let them meet with a barrier in between to let them get to know each other, or would this cause unnecessary stress? I'm not worried about making them best buds since I have no intention to bond them, but I'd like to be able to pet the little guy, or at the very least to cross carpeted areas without fear of my feet being savaged.
