Recently, we started giving our bun "nose kisses" where we rub our nose on hers. Since then, she started licking my husbands face and even nibbling on him. Now, he doesn't even have to give her nose kisses ... she will just climb up on him when he is sitting down and lick him. She can get quite assertive about it too! This week, she nipped his chin but we think it was because he hadnt shaved and she was trying to groom him. Does anyone else's bunny do this? And why does she only do it to him? She will let me give her nose kisses, but then she just walks away. She doesn't act this way with me, even though I spend just as much time with her, and I'm the one who feeds her! Lol

My princess gives me kisses all the time. she will also nip when grooming my eyebrows ( trying to remove burrs that don't exist ). She has recently begun sticking her head under my face for kisses and tooth purrs when I kiss her little head and ears ! Why only him ? Don't have an answer for that

Well our bun does something similar so we have developed a theory on that one.
Is yours husband a smoker by any chance?
We think it might be becaus my husband is a smoker and when I was giving Redford vitamins after he got nuged, among other things, there is a Nicotinic acid.
I know that sounds crazy but who knows it might be not so far away from the truth.

No he doesnt smoke. It's the funniest thing watching her practically attack him. If he pulls away when shes licking him, she'll just climb further up on his lap so she can reach his face. And as far as the eyebrows ... she does try to nibble them. I would just love to know why he's the only one she acts this way with. Also, in the morning when she's the most rambunctious she will stop what she's doing every few minutes and go over to him for snuggles but when he's not around and its just me, she doesnt do that. I always remind her that mommy cleans her litter boxes, buys and washes her veggies and feeds her, but she just hops away.

One of our buns, Laurana aka known as Princess Diva of the house hold will give out kisses occasionally to me, and Yes I am a smoker but I don't get attacked for the grooms, however she loves to pluck the eyebrows ( have been trying to explain that one to the person who does my eyebrows....) and somehow does it well.

She will however try to groom my fiancee's beard if he's laying down in the room and trying to nap. I equate the grooming of the nose as being told, yeah i like you but man you don't know how to keep clean like I do, so I guess I gotta take it in my own hands and do it.
