    Default Do your buns respond to their names?

    As the title says really
    Nutmeg's ears ping up, and sometimes she comes bounding towards you
    But Cinnamon just blanks you out....

    Thank you Jenova for the lovely sig x

    Yeah, Charlie knows his name 100%
    Milly is learning and responds to hers about 70% of the time now
    Charlie the bunny
    Puddy & Buggly & Sabrina the cats
    Willow the cockatiel
    Milton & Rhod & Dara & Greg & Ed & Ryan the rats

    All five of mine do, but Feegal is deafish now so he doesn't anymore. Sally runs over and butts him at breakfast and dinner time though

    Badger would. I could just whisper 'Badger' within ear shot and he would come bounding.

    Some of my others do, or variants of their names. Lightning comes to 'Lighters', Sky comes to 'Sky'. Star comes to 'starry arreeeee'. The Lops come if they want to, but Flame is VERY reliable with 'FlameyFace' said in a high voice.
    Dopeys come to 'DoooooooooooooPeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey'. Sunny comes to 'Sunny', Dawn comes to 'Dawnin', Hope comes to 'Schmoooooooooooooooooooooopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeey' (rhyming with Dopey). Candyfloss and Dusk only come as a couple and I have to call them both.

    Sandy and Roger don't come (well, Sandy does, but she comes to anything).

    They ALL come to the food noise.
    PLEASE DONíT QUOTE MY POSTS IN ANY THREADS I START. Thank you

    Oh yes! Pickles knows that 'Pickle-Pie!' usually results in food, and comes hopping up to me, while 'PICKLES!!!!' means I'm about ready to pie him, and he'll give the nortiest little bum wiggle and binky away.
