So, what is everyone's thoughts on bonding rabbits and cats. Not sure how this predator/prey relationship will work out. Nova (cat) was just a kitten when I found her on my porch and introduced her to Felony (the bunz). Felony was almost two years and had been living all that time as an only child in my apartment. They got along just fine, but my roommate decided she hated cats and I had my mom adopt Nova until my roommate moved out.
So the roommate is out, and Nova has been living the luxurious life of an only kitty with her grandma and grandpa. She is also much bigger than she was a few months ago. I'm thinking of going home to get my cat back soon. Any advice for getting them back to being friends?
My two cats and Tucker are good friends. One of them I don't have to worry about with Tucker, he's very mellow and doesn't ever swat at Tucker, the other one is my diva cat and sometimes she gets in a mood where she'll swat at Tucker when she's in her way. I always just make her leave the area when she's being like that and she'll go back later when she's in a better mood.
I think alot depends on the rabbit and the cat really. Tucker doesn't attack the cats but I think if she did that they might try to swat her more. And my cats are pretty mellow and aren't that active or crazy so they don't seem to think of Tucker as prey. I think they just think she's a silent cat with big ears and a short tail.
