help! bunny brawl!
as i've talked about many times -- we have 2 dwarf boys: a lionhead and a netherlands. they are about 6 mos. old now and were neutered about 5 weeks ago. they have been caged together since birth and have always been very good friends -- sleep together, etc.
however, last night they were out for their usual romp around the house and they got into a scuffle! charlie (our larger lionhead bun) was chasing sammie around. they couldn't seem to catch each other, but both lost a good bit of hair because of stress. we put them back in their cage and watched them and they were fine all night and all day today.
well... we went to dinner and a movie with friends tonight. when we got home, the bunnies had escaped! luckily, they are friends with our two cats.
sammie was hiding in the back of the house behind our litter boxes and charlie was under our bed. this is very unusual --- they usually follow each other around.
there was bunny hair EVERYWHERE. big clumps from both buns... especially in their cage. we think they got into a big scuffle in the cage and accidently busted the door down.
when i got sammie and put him in the living room, he seemed scared. as soon as charlie saw him, he went after him! we intervened in time... but sammie was really shaken.
sooooooo - for the first time, we've separated them. we have each of them in their own cage (luckily we had an extra) and we have the cages sitting side-by-side so they can see each other. they seem to want to be together, but we're worried.
is this normal? what should we do next? please, help!!!!
