Hi there! I'm new and have a few questions about bonding. I have a mini lop (Nicky) and a rex (Maddie).
I am in the process of bonding them and everything is going amazingly well! They were snuggling on the first date and have yet to show 1 sign of aggressive behavior (4th date today). The only thing is, they're not grooming yet. They're both presenting themselves like crazy, but neither has started. I've read about smearing a bit of banana above their noses. Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Is it ridiculous? Do I just have a pair that won't groom?
Thanks in advance! Oh, and my love buns:
Ahh, true. I refer to my bunnies as "freaks of nature" because of thier ridiculously easy bonding. Grooming will come in time and I don't want to force it!
oooh you lucky bunnymum you send some of your 'easy bonding vibes' my way if you have any to spare please
your buns are gorgeous! let us know when they give it up & start grooming (i'm sure they're just being demure since they took to each other so quickly).
