Hi all, I'm a newbie here. I just got a 9-week old Holland Lop, and I was thinking about getting her a companion. I've heard it's easier to bond rabbits when they are young. But I also know that it is better to spay/neuter them first and wait a couple of weeks before introducing them. So, I was wondering if it would be better to get her a companion now, and get them both altered later, or, if I should wait, get her spayed, and then find an altered companion for her? I'm thinking I should wait, but I thought I'd get some other opinions. Thanks in advance for any help.
Thanks for all of the advice. I'm definitely gonna hold off for a while, and she seems to be pretty happy by herself at the moment. She's not my first rabbit, but it's been a while since I've had them. I used to have a pair of mini lop bucks as a kid but I bought them together so I didn't have to worry about bonding, or baby buns!
I'm really glad I found this forum and I look forward to talking more.
