I am just after some advise about bonding my 8 month old dwarf cross mini lop, neutered male with a 6-12 month old female lop. (Currently not neutered but would be before she came home). She is currently in a rescue center.
My boy Rex is going on his first bunny date with her this weekend and I was just wondering what I should be looking for when they meet?
I don't want to take her home and pay for neutering if rex hates her!
Should I keep Rex in his crate and show them to each other or should I put him in the cage with her for a bit?
Jodie (potential double bunny mummy) :-)
Thanks for your replies both.
The shelter is a general animal shelter so not specifically for rabbits. I have already been to meet Toffee myself and she seems lovely to me! But obviously she wont be my girlfriend so Rex is going to have the last word!
So as long as they dont attack each other you think we would be ok to take her home?
Sooo... Rexy went on his date with Toffee on Sunday, they were put into seperate cages next to each other. Rex sniffed at Toffee a few times but mostly ignored her which I am taking as a good sign! And Toffee was more interested in Rex, but I am assuming that is because she hasn't been neutered yet.
She is all booked in for her neutering tommorrow and all being well can pick her up tomorrow afternoon.
So excited!! :-)
