i have two new dwarf bunnies that i've had for almost 2 weeks. one is a dwarf lionhead and the other one is a netherlands dwarf. they have been housed together since they were both born... so nearly 2 1/2 months. in the 2 weeks that i've had them, they have displayed nothing but affection for one another. they sleep and cuddle together constantly.
however, for the first time, they had a scuffle today. i had them out in the living room and i saw them get into a little spat. they seemed to be chasing each other's tails. no blood.. and nothing seemed too serious.. but there were some tufts of hair on the floor. i split them up and had them calm down and then put them in their cage. they had another spat that lasted a few seconds and are now sleeping together in their house.
i also notice that yesterday, for the first time, the smaller netherlands dwarf was mounting the lionhead. i thought (and still think) that the netherlands is a girl and the lionhead a boy. they have a vet appointment next week and we'll know for sure. it seems that the lionhead was being more agressive today, though.
should i be concerned? is this normal behavior? i know my cats and hammies have little spats now and then but are, for the most part, very loyal companions.
