Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
It's not easy bonding bunnies. It takes a lot of time and patience. Also, since Buddie is still intact her hormones could be making her grumpy.
There are many tips on bonding. Putting the cages next to each other and bonding in neutral territory are good. I have also heard to take them for a car ride but you need another person to do this. One person to drive and one to watch the bunnies. I have used "scary" places like the basement or my family room with the dogs whining in the back. The best place I have found so far is the bath tub. It seemed to intimidate even the bold buns.
It is important to be sure that they don't fight. Bunny fights are awful. To separate them I typically use a water bottle. I would not recommend using your hands as you could get bit by accident.
Oh and you can also destract them during bonding time with salads.
There are more tips I am sure - I just cannot think of them.
