I have a quesiton
Right now, we're neither thinking of moving in the near future or of getting a second rabbit.
However, it is something that, eventually, we'll be looking into. (Right now, though the time and resources are there, our lives are subject to change significantly over the next 3 years, and I would hate to bring a second rabbit into the situation when I really still haven't a clue what I'm doing with the first one
What I've been considering, as a "plan" of sorts (cuz I like plans - they make me feel safe and warm ) In approximately two years, M and I will be making a big move. I say this because he's currently enrolled in an academic problem, whose eventual result will lead him to get a job in a distant, faraway (warm!) land which will mean that the bunny will be packing her little tiny bags and moving cross country with us to a new home that is a completely neutral territory on account of it's newness. Thus is my question - when we move, would that be the best time to introduce a new rabbit to our little lives since all of the territory will be neutral to both rabbits? Or would the addition of a fourth family member at that point upset Meco as well. Or, because there's always a third option, would it be best to bond Meco to another rabbit before the move so she has someone to sustain the scary travels with? Bonding, I've read, can take months, and knowing that I need to plan a few extra hours a day prior to the move to add another bunny into the mix would signficantly change some of my life plans.
Yes, I know, I am insane.
But, if it would be better to bond her first, then I need to start looking at making a second bun work in THIS space, because in my experience, it took time to find her - and I imagine that, with 3 opinions instead of 2, finding another bun will take even longer. Plus, I want to buy a couch with my tax returns - and if I have to make two buns work her, I need dimensions
