Hello! I am a fairly new rabbit owner, too. I've had my 2 loves for nearly 3 months.

I can tell you that building trust was (and still is) the HARDEST part of being a new bunny mommy. They are so cute I just want to reach in and cuddle with them all of the time. But, everyone and everything has said that is the WRONG thing to do.

If you are looking to develop a healthy, long-term relationship with Pepe, you are going to have to make yourself stick to the rules. Try not to go into his space (cage/hutch) and get him out. You have to let him come out on his own terms. Again, I KNOW this is so tough.

I've received some great advice on these boards. Many folks told me to sit on the floor outside of the cage, leave the cage door open, and wait for the bun to get curious enough to come to you. Have some treats on you: greens, cheerios, etc. When he comes to you, give him a treat.

Hope this helps!
