Harry is currently unbonded and I'm pretty sure he gets lonely when I go out, he's always very happy to see me and he acts worried when he knows I'm going out (putting on my shoes seems to be the signal).
Tomorrow I have to drive to my mum's, take her cat to the vets at 8:30am, then pick him up after his surgery at 4pm. Realistically I won't be home until 8 or even 9 - maybe 15 hours in total. Harry has never been alone that long before, the longest was 6 hours. He coped fine, but I feel like we're closer now than we were then.
I'm juggling in my mind whether to take him with me or not. The house would be unfamiliar and smell like cats. We could block off a room so the remaining cat couldn't get to him, but the smell would still be there. My mum has all laminate floors and Harry doesn't chew wires (or anything really!) so he couldn't cause any damage, and it's okay if he pees outside his litter tray.
I don't know if the comfort of being with me will make up for the stress of the drive and being in an unfamiliar place. He is a very relaxed bunny, he has only used his hiding place once in the weeks I've had him, and that was when I vaccuumed. He has only had one short trip, to the vets, and it did stress him quite a bit - he lost his litter training for a few days. I don't know if it was the journey or the vet's exam that did it.
I'm torn, please give me your thoughts! This will all be so much easier in a few weeks when he is hopefully bonded, but for now I'm all he has
