can it finally be working?
from my other thread bunny bonding..more buny bonding i guess the problems im having are pretty self explanatory!
yesterday was awful..the pen made him attack her..the downstairs tiny bathroom floor didnt owrk either..she kept hiding behind the toilet fromhim!
I put them back in the pen and he went for her 4 times in a row despite being calmed down etc.
We put him in his cage for a time out and let her run free round the lounge..wed not been letting either of them do this since the weekend..we were trying the if you want exercise you exercise togehter technique!
She had a fantastic time out and as usual flirting with him through the bars..and he kept growling and trying to bite her..he nipped her several times on the nose but she kept going back for more.
She had 2 longish naps and in the end he fell asleep sulking!
At tea time we caught her and caged her as we had to take dinner over to my mum whos ill..and we came back and let him out for runs and cuddles etc...
Then we put them both in the pen and he started..i was just saying how id move her into my bedroom she didnt deserve this..when something amazing happened..he lay down next to her head whilst she was snoozing inher litter pan.
It escalated from this to him chinning her back..and eventually sleeping with her in his litter pan and washing her head and ears furiously for ages..oh and then whilst she was snoozing..he awoke her by humping her! (they are both fixed but shes onlybeen fixed for a few weeks)
there was a lot of hay munching..running round..a few scuffles but no biting and then they were all snuggled up..i felt guilty having to cage them at 11pm!
Is this the start..has it worked at last..is bonding finally happening..
Today will be the test i guess..think ill do same as yesterday..let her run wild then later let him and then the pen..
the pen btw is a childs travelcot/playpen off ebay..its fantastic!
i wont be hanging up my water squirter just yet but its promising right?
