OJ has taken to sulking in his house and I don't understand why. He's never been particularly friendly - he doesn't like being picked up but he will tolerate (and enjoy) a nose rub, but recently (last week or so) he's started avoiding us completely.
He spends all day in his house while we are at work, but he's freed every evening for about 4-5 hours and he has all weekend to run around as well. He used to come into the lounge to play and sit with us - he was just starting to jump on my lap etc. But now he just comes out for a couple of minutes, has a nose around, looks at his toys and goes back to his house for the rest of the evening.
He loves ripping newspaper, yellow pages and chewing cardboard and there are plenty of other toys around for him to play with, but he doesn't seem interested. If we try and play with him or talk to him he just runs away, although he will groom my boyfriend for a few seconds in the evening.
I don't know if this is a phase and something he'll grow out of (he's about 6 months old) or if he's angry with us because we had him neutured (four weeks ago) and made him stay at the vets overnight . I'm just worried as he's not getting much exercise and is not interested in become friends with us any more.
Maybe he's lonely, we thought about bonding him but we don't really have the space for a new bunny at the moment or the time available to spend bonding them regularly plus he has a teddy for a friend but he's totally not interested in it.
Any ideas for what we can do or why he might be behaving in this way?
