I hope some of you can help me with this! My bunny is a male & is 14 months old and whenever i stand or am sitting he's obsessed with my feet or ankles. When i stand up he circles my feet and tries to nip me sometimes. When i'm sitting he jumps up and tries to nip my ankles.

What is this?? How do i get this to stop? I've tried a loud NO .... any suggestions ?? its really becoming obsessive where i can't leave my feet down & he will jump on the couch just to get to my feet. THANKS!!!!

You need to get him neutered if he is not already.

would this be of any danger to him considering he is 14 months?

Absolutely not, boys can be done as young as 4-6 months old

i had Barney done at 1 and a half and Jigsaw at 5 and a half. Both fine. Barney used to circle me and spray my legs and that stopped once he was done. Is also nicer for them as once they are done they have no sexual frustration so can concentrate on dandelion leaves and nose rubs and binkies!

Don't forget to check that your vet is rabbit knowledgeable and frequently does rabbit operations before booking your sexy friend in for his plums!

If any doubts then ask on here for recommendations. rabbits ops are best done by rabbity vets!

We're mostly in the UK here but you could try contacting your local rescue centre/humane society. If they take rabbits they may be able to recommend good vets or the ones they use to get all their bunnies done. The House Rabbit Society might have a list too :)

binky = bouncing around and going nuts.. having a great time.


When your bunny circles you does he honk (soft noise like a far away cruise liner horn) as well? I miss my bunnys honking as it goes when they're neutered as does the circling....I only get it now when there's food to be had. I don't however miss little rosies grunting, lunging and boxing which she used to do before being neutered.

Re vets in NYC:

You could try asking on Bunspace (www.bunspace.com). This is mainly Americans - though has people from round the world including some uk! It also has lists of vets - and you can put a question on the forum there.

But don't forget to come back and chat to us!

:shock: Mine has just begun to circle my feet and I thought it was was because he was becoming used to me and wanted my company! Perhaps it's time to think about getting him done too? :lol:
