I have had Bing for a year and a half now. He is nuetered, potty trained and mostly behaves himself. (He likes to test everything at least onces with his teeth, not limited to the pretty new shoes that were on my feet. ) I have him in a setup that's about 20 square feet with places to hide and jump and the works. I really really really want to get him a friend. SO BADLY! My concern is that I will not be financially able to take care of to rabbits. Bing has a policy with VPI and the new guy would have to have one too. It would be twice as much hay to purchase (and Bing is a hay eating machine to begin with!). It would be more food and veggies. And do I even have enough room for two? There is a great place nearby that has already okay-ed me taking Bing to meet with other rabbits to see who he fits the best with before I adopt one. I had a friend who interned there and she loved the place.
What have you other bunny owners experienced with a change like this? How much financial increase did you see? And did you have to greatly expand the living environment? Were your original bunnies happier for having a friend to always cuddle with?
