How does your bunny and cat react right now? How large is your bunny, and does he seem scared of your cat? Sometimes rabbits can actually terrorize cats, but it sounds like your cat can also be dangerous to your rabbit since he actually killed a pigeon. So you will not be able to leave them alone unsupervised. If a bunny is scared enough, and being stalked by a cat, it can cause serious health issues due to stress - like gi stasis or even shock.

We have a happy cats / bunny/ gecko household! After having Jessica w/ the cats since Jan., I'd be very comfortable (and often am, unbeknownst to the hubby) leaving her alone w/ the kitty beasts. Her biggest problem is she tends to cocoa puff and pee on the bed/sleep areas. Maybe it will be better after she gets spayed (I'm waiting on my tax check).
I have had mice in the house...uninvited ones...and Phoebe my aircraft carrier cat has hunted them. I usually got them away from her b/f she killed them. She just played w/ them. One of my cats, leashed, tried to go after a pigeon. I feel that alot of the hunting is inbred in cats and their genes. I would keep an eye on the bunny/cat relationship. I believe it also depends if the cat is an outdoor kitty...mine are all indoor only!
the cat is currently living in africa hes is about 1 year old now and was a stay as a kitten from we got him he killed 2 pigeons and about 4-5 small lizards i am living in northern ireland with my bunny the bunny is quite big but not fully grown i was told he could be up to 10lbs he currently isnt afraid of my naibours cat and i have almost had a heart attack many a time when the cats came into my garden only to see my rabbit chase the cat the cat wil be coming to the uk in about 8 months time to live with me as my parent travel to much and its not fair on the cat at the moment the cat has the kitchen to itself and my idea was to just keep the cat out of the kitchen ..but i wouldbe happyer if they could get along any ideas
