Advice: not forcing buns out of cage
Okay, I'm posting a lot. But, i'm a new bunny owner and I want to do everything right!
When I first got our babies about a month ago, I had read several places that you shouldn't go in the cage and take the bunnies out. Several sources said it was important not to invade their space and to let them come to you on their own. Of course, I ignored this at first because I wanted to cuddle and bond with them every night.
I took them to the vet this past week and he said, once again, that I HAVE to do this. My bunnies are pretty loving. However, they are also still young and skittish. How do you develop a bond and cuddle with your bunny if they won't come out? If I open their cage door, they come out and run around the house like crazy and then go back in 30 minutes later. However, they aren't at the point where they will approach me yet. Do I just never touch the bunnies until they come to me? It is sooooooo hard.
Last night I opened the cage door and they came and both stuck their heads out. I couldn't help it. I picked them up and cuddled with them on the couch for a while.
