    Default HELP! - bonding

    so as you may or may not know, on the 18th my shed should be up and i can start to paint it so by the 20th it should be set for the bunnies to go in, so i have 10days to bond them ready!

    now i think valentino is going to be the problem here, when he first sniffed thumper months ago he tried to lunge at him, very aggressivly!

    but im hoping it goes well :/

    so i can't do it in the bath tub because we only have one and my parents arn't going to agree to not bathing for 10 days

    so there in the playpen in my room, im going to tidy up and hoover so theres less sent and everything, im going to put a big litter tray because i can't have them going everywhere and a water bottle.

    ive got a spray bottle just incase, is there anything else i should/need to do to make it go easier?

    maybe they just can't be bonded

    or try and take them to a rescue who do bonding for you? they may be able to make it wokr and then it truly would be neutral...

    sorry i dont know that much about bonding, i've just had my zoidberg put in a rescue to find himself a gf :-)

    When I bonded my four back in March I found the problem was the litter tray, one claimed it as theirs and got territorial over everything, I started again with only newspaper down then hay ontop and made the space quite small so they were closer (when the space was too large I found two buns one end of the pen and two buns the other end), it take a lot of nerve and patience plus time.
    Dont give in too soon but make sure you and the bunnies are safe (wear thick gloves!)

    Oh no

    You really do need to wear huge thick gloves when bonding in the early stages, just in case.
    I so hope Val and Thumper can be bonded, if I were you I'd take the water bottle and litter box out, put hay/veggies/pellets all over the floor to distract them, and replace the bottle with a big bowl.

    currently, lilly thumper and snow are in the playpen (ive made it smaller a 3x2 they are munching on hay, theres been fur pulling and chasing but then they all stop and bunny flop out mainly snow and thumper together. i don't have the guts to put vali in yet so im letting him sniff everyone through the bars for a while thumper flops and grooms himself infront of vali but its val who keeps nipping him through the barss :/
