awww sounds like she was horny and happy!! Bif makes some really funny noises..none of which ive ever hearda rabbit make before..you soon learn1
We have had Bif and Oscar bonded for almost 3 weeks now! Best advice is to have them both done at the same time..and then give the lady bun at least 2 weeks to heal..and mr horny toad..at least 4 weeks to allow hormones to die down..or he will be a bit amourous still!!
we have a large dog crate..weve just an even bigger one off ebay..and it cost us £37 with £8 postage..not sure what the cost is in $ but i will have to get the link off my daughter and post it for you.
This cage is large enough for a rottweiler!
Our two have to have a litter pan each..they argue if theres only one..although ive seen a litter pan built for two over here on bunnybasics..so im sure you guys have em over there.
One water bowl is fine..and although i give them 2 bowls..they share one..and insist on doing so..its very sweet.
To watch little vids of our bonding sessions..pictures and a diary...to give you some tips and ideas..
my daughters site is
shes house bound with chronic severe CFS/ME and the bunnies are her companions especially as we lost our elderly cats ...so she has a website going which she has to add to yet bunny humour and my friends account of a very large rescue bun(she worked for the rspca) she took on who had to live outside in the end and how she houses her etc for those who want their buns outdoors..
i skimmed soooo many sites for advice as non of our stuff seemed to be linked anywhere..and i found a few tips..tried them and modified them..so take a peek and i really hope it helps..its why its there so other people in our situation can see what theyre heading for and all those tales of love at first sight arent always true!
bunnies are a huge risk during ops but the methods of putting them out is changing and vets are teaching at the beginning bunny anaesthesia and aftercare..they didt ten years ago!
keep them queit and warm..shock is a big after problem..so no noisy children doogs etc..heat pads if necessary and even a hot water bottle outside the cage where it cant be nibbled is a great help.
be vigilant and encourage eating afterwards by tempting with fresh green grass...parsley is wonderful as a tonic pick me up and so too is dandelion leaves..or dried herb tonic...or just anything they really are partial too. Gut stasis occurs rapidly in a bun that wont eat..so yes try that smelly sachet stuff and also keep a syringe or two handy and jars of purreed baby food..fruit or veg ones of course! And expect sticky bums a bit till the bunnies have had time to calm down..usually a few days..
let us know how you get one.
