Bunny Active-ness and a Stupid Socialization Question
I have 2 questions, so Im gonna just combine them into one thread.
First off... How active are everyones bunnies? Ever since I got Smudge fixed, he hasnt been as active as usual. Im not worried about him being sick, but I just think its a little weird. Since his surgery, he has has free range of my bedroom and the hallway for at least 12 hours a day, and he doesnt seem to be using any of it! I probably have about 20 of his toys scattered through out my room at all times for him, but he wont touch any of them. Ive been getting a little more creative with his toys, and I made him a box with a but of shapes cut out stuffed with shredded paper for him to dug, but he wont touch that either. And he loves to sneak into my moms room when she leaves the door open, and hide under her bed and play with the wrapping paper we keep there, so I raised my bed (it was on the floor before) so he could go under it... So far, he hasnt. :[ Except for a little while at night, he just doesnt do anything! Hes obviously content, because whenever I walk in there he is sleeping completely flopped over on his side with his little legs sticking up, but I just feel bad that he isnt getting much excercise. Its been kinda hot out lately and we dont usually put the AC on, so I dont know if that is contributing to his lazy-ness. Is it normal for fixed bunnies to lose all their hyperness? Does anyone have any suggestions to make him more active? Im feeling kinda sad about this...
And this is probably a really stupid question, but Ive been kinda worrying about this too...
So one of the shelters around here has a "Hoppy Hour", wich is pretty much a massive play time of about 50+ rabbits. I really want ot bring Smudge to this, but Im worried about how he will react to other bunnies. It would be really embaressing if he stats obsessivly humping every bun in sight! So what would be the normal way for him to react to another rabbit? Do you think he would be ready to go meet other rabbits yet?
I know its probably kinda dumb, but the only time I had a bonded pair of rabbits was when I was 6 or 7 years old, so I dont remember how rabbits are supposed to act around eachother LOL.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
