Quick background: We've had Carmela for 6 weeks now, she is 9 months and spayed 2 weeks ago. Her attitude has already changed a lot and she's been a good bunny since her spay.
She lives in a 3x4 NIC pen and we finally let her out for the first time yesterday. Our living room has laminate and a rug in our seating area. She has found her footing pretty quickly. She loves running up and down next to the guinea pigs' cage, I think she wants their veggies... So far she hasn't found her way in, but I suspect that'll change.
We haven't had any chewing, digging or even litter habit issues. She will "feel" the corners of things with her teeth, but she doesn't actually chew. She LOVES being out! The first night we put her back in she rammed the cage until one of the plastic holder things gave up and she got out, so we ziptied all the grids together. It was pretty funny actually, what a brat!
So far our only "issue" has been her crawling under the couch. The first night we lifted the couch and got her out, but tonight we let her squirm a bit. She couldn't move around freely and started to get anxious, so once we finally lifted the couch and let her out she has seemingly decided against going back under.
I've been trying to treat her like a 2 year old. No means no, and if you don't behave you go home. We're trying not to feed her when she's out, trying to avoid starting bad habits. We ring a bell when we try to get her to go back to her pen, and then we give her dinner or a treat once she's gone inside.
So far she likes to run Bunny 500's around our ottomans, hide behind the curtains and stealing the scoop out of her bag of pellets. She also like to lay on the bottom shelf of our bookcase ( I removed the frame and put down a blankie).
I don't forsee ever doing 100% unsupervised all day free roam. I like knowing she's in her pen and safe when we're not around. Our house is very bunny proof, we have hidden, covered and moved our cords, closed the doors on the fireplace and we have no plants. She goes in her pen to pee and poop and to drag out her "throw about" toys.
Any other advice? I'm shocked that she hasn't rubbed her chin on a single thing since the spay... She'll be getting a neutered friend next month.
