I have 2 rabbits... Donnie whom we adopted 1st and Marie who we adopted a week later. At first she was chasing and biting which we put a stop to but now she is just coming near him to smell him and groom him but he thumps and freaks out and run around their cage like a lunatic! How can we get him to see her mean days are past her and that she just wants to be friends?
In the shelter they got along great and there was even a little grooming going on thats why we chose her so we know theres hope but it looks so bleak becasue we keep having to seperate them.......
They are Spayed and Neutered but we think it may have to do with her hormones becasue she was spayed just before we brought her home (hence her aggressive behavior) but that has worn off now and she just wan't attention from him! She loves us but we think its companionship from him that she longs for and well he has been slightly withdrawn from day 1. Would it be wrong of us to consider taking him back to the shelter and getting a bun thats not afraid of her. we would like to keep them both but push come to shove she is the more outgoing one and doesn't seem bothered by my kids (the reason we picked them both! at the shelter they had time with my kids and neither seemed to mind the shrieks of delight from my daughter or the light ear tug my son gave)
Most bunnies must go through a bonding period. You've gotten great advice. Give us an update!
