What about play time together? If they shouldn't be housed together, than maybe they shouldn't play together either.
I'm not too worried about most of the dog's, I'm worried about the few that like to chase and torment the cats
and those are the same one's whose mouths water when they see the chinnies out during play time (we have a screen door on the chinnie room and the hallway is gated, so the dog's can view from the other side of the gate)
Well, the vets say that because of the potential for passing disease, they shouldn't play together either...they also say to change your clothing and wash hands between handling chins and rabbits but personally I don't go that far unless someone were ill. So far, no problems. Also, un neutered male rabbits can and will hump anything that moves (or doesn't move) including other male rabbits and cats. (see the Lucky Jack thread
) so I would be concerned about them trying to hump the chins and causing injury. I haven't technically introduced the rabbits to the dogs outside of the rabbit cages yet, but when I do, I'll be starting with Orion...his prey drive is nill
he'll probably run from them! Kali on the other hand is a different story...she likes to chase squirrels so that one will be handled delicately leash in hand. Eventually I would like for the rabbits to be able to have playtime without having to lock the dogs in the bedroom. I'll let you know how that goes when the time comes. Dutchie needs to be fixed first though, or he'll be raping the dogs next!
