Well things have gone far from smoothly but im still trying! I spent ages trawling around the net to see if anywherehad any other ideas as they all seem to say the same thing..thank you to the san diego house rabbit society!!
First..every time they fought i put them back in their cages..WRONG..they suggest just water pistol and separating them in the run and calming them and then carry on.
It works MUCH better!
Next..oscar really has had the run of the house..he used to follow our two cats around..he could never master the slipery kitchen floor but leonie taught him! Trouble was although he couldnt get in there..hes used to sitting on a small dirt gripper mat in the doorway by my fridge freezer..so of course he thinks the kitchen is his!
I am really at my wits end!
THEN thanks to said society it suggested using a playpen..wonderful! We bought a playpen/travel cot off ebay and its soo great!
Yesterday i dug out the pet stroller our elderly cat with kidney failure used last christmas as cat carrir was too cold and painful for her....this was great..i dont drive as im epileptic..so i went up and down our tiny garden and round and round it for half an hour solid!
Then into the playpen..poor lady bun weed herself promptly!
Put in a litter tray..they both used it and they were togehter for nearly half an hour before we decided to put them in their cages as oscar was trying to sleep and kept going for her cos she was trying to sneak up on him. Now i realise i shouldnt have split them up.
But today they were togehter for over 2 hours and im off now for another session..
tip..HUGE pile of hay in the middle and their own litter pans really helps..but make sure theres toys and you have the water pistol full!
wish me luck..
btw..smearing yummy things on one buns head or both..just two very miffed buns waiting to have it washed off!!
Also oscar kept going for her through the bars..so we have decided only exercise is them togehter in pen..thatll get em!
I will put up a link later of my 21 year old daughters site and blog..bunny pics and vids..so you can compare notes..any thing to pass around any help for this trying phase for all of us!
