Before I had children, I would always find time to pet and play with Thumper. Then, I got pregnant and, the bigger I got, the more tired I got so I spent increasingly more time with my bunny, very often falling asleep with her on the couch. Then, when I gave birth, I had no more time for my bunny at all. Once a week or so, I would force myself so sit down and pet her for 5 minutes, but that was about it. Well, I'm pretty sure that Thumper had a depression. Although she was free to raom around the house all day, she didn't come out of her cage anymore and she didn't seem interested in anything anymore. I spoke about it to my vet and she said it was perfectly normal and that she'd get over it eventually.
Well, my vet was right. Thumper did get over it after a few months and now she seems pretty happy to see me whenever I'm available (which is more often then right after giving birth, but still not as often as before having kids!) So, hopefully, like Thumper, Jellybean will get over it and come to appreciate the time that you do have to spend with her!
