  1. Dogs
    Yesterday I read about a new study published in the journal of Science that when humans and dogs gaze into each other’s eyes, both experience increased levels of the “love hormone” oxytocin, which is the same hormone that bonds human mothers and their babies. When my dog and I look into each...
  2. Prairie Dog Discussion
    I have had four pd"s for about a month. They live outside but I do bring them in one or two at a time at night to spend time with them. They are warming up and getting better. I just got three more yesterday who are very scared. They are in a temporary cage in my room. The three new ones came...
  3. Prairie Dog Discussion
    One of my pd's loves coming to us and ya hooing and all that. She is so excited. When we pick her up she's not scared but tries to run up your shoulder or your back. I take her down and she goes up again. Should I just hold her real still or just keep taking her down. She does this to everyone...
  4. Rabbit Discussion
    I recently just got a 6 wk old holland lop bunny. He seems to be shy and kind of scared. I have been trying to do everything I can to get him to trust me but nothing seems to work. When hes in his cage he just sits in a corner. And when I take him out to play he just puts himself in a corner...
  5. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I met Taco the Rat in my Psych lab last fall. Throughout that semester it was my and my lab partner's job to feed/weigh/clean up after Taco. But I spent extra time with him .. 'cause he was so darn cute. During the Spring semester I was much busier and only managed to visit Taco a few times over...
  6. Sugar Glider Discussion
    I am afraid I haven't treated my new sugar glider properly and may have caused him to never want to bond. I started off completely wrong when getting him, I had two sugar gliders when I was a kid and honestly didn't realize how much of the work my parents actually did while they were joeys. I...
  7. Rabbit Discussion
    I am a new bunny owner. I have done my great share of research online, talking with vets and various rabbit rescues. I have a male Mini Rex who is about 4 months old and was neutered about a month ago. He is very healthy and friendly (he regularly is handled by my neighbors children and my...
  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've had my boys Piper and Marco for about... 9 months. Time really has flown by. o.o Unfortunately, all both of them seem to want to do is run off. They are nice boys, but they aren't very responsive to being pet, or held. They just want to sit on me long enough to be transported to wherever...
  9. Rabbit Discussion
    We have 2 adult rabbits (3 years old) and 2 youngsters (about 10 months old). They are all males. The pairs have been bonded. The two adults were purchased together and then had a falling out after being neutered. So, they were re-bonded at about 10 months old. It was quite the process. The 2...
  10. Prairie Dog Discussion
    I recently purchased an 8 week old prairie dog. I've only had him for a few days. He hides in his tunnel when I'm at his cage, but he lets me pet him and eats hay from my hand, but alas, he won't come out of his tunnel. Just wondering how long it took other PD owners to bond with their PD to the...
  11. Cats
    Hi everyone. I got a kitten 7 months ago and we already have a 2 yr old. Things were just OK at first, no major fight but some hissing, swatting and sometime they would just play. 2 months ago I started using feliway and since then it's been great. They sleep next to each other etc... Today...
  12. Rabbit Discussion
    I have a 1 1/2 year old (spayed) female, Belle, and just brought home a 2 month old male, named Leon. Leon has obviously not been neutered yet, as he is still very young. We haven't officially started "bonding" them yet, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to go about it...
  13. Degu Discussion
    Hi there, About 4 months ago I have adopted a rescued male degu, Safi. Things were getting better, he started to sit on my lap to eat his treats. Then, a friend of mine recommended me to adopt another male degu for him as a friend. Robert, came 3 days ago. This made me realize that I don't know...
  14. Rabbit Discussion
    Hello, I'm new to the forums. I'll explain what's been going on and then I have some questions maybe someone would know the answer to. Sorry its a long post I'm going to try and be as detailed as possible. My roomie and I recently rescued a rabbit and then another one unexpectedly. We've...
  15. Chinchilla Discussion
    I've had my chinchilla for 7 months now and I feel like we haven't really bonded. She'll climb on my lap a little when I let her out to play, but she won't let me hold her or really pet her when she's not in her cage. She loves to be pet through the bars of her cage but when I sit by her cage to...
  16. Rabbit Discussion
    I'm new here and I have a couple of questions. I did all the research and am now the proud owner of a 5 month old buck. He is neutered, and has been quite moody. I rescued him from Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary, he was born in June at the Sanctuary, and has never seen the inside of a home. His...
  17. Rabbit Discussion
    Is it easier to bond a baby bunny with a four month old than an adult with the four month old? I really want a friend for my bunny.
  18. Rabbit Discussion
    Hi! I saw a video on youtube last night. The lady on the video said that you can put a litterbox in a bathtub and the rabbits in the litterbox. I tried that. But I'm having some problems with judging what mood the rabbits were in. I can manage to split up a fight before they hurt eachother...
  19. Rabbit Discussion
    I got my nose and eyebrows groomed today! :bundance: I was laying on the floor with Nuggie petting him and he dozed off, then woke up to scritch his ear. My face was close to him so he sniffed my nose like he usually does, and then started giving me lots of bunny kisses! He seems to like my...
  20. Chinchilla Discussion
    I have had a female chinchilla for about 4-5 years now. I had grown up with rodents and loved them, and when I researched and found out about chinchillas I couldn't resist. I absolutely love her, I have to say out of the rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils I have owned growing up...
