    My first rabbit when I was very young was a nethie. He spent most of his time in the house and was like a little dog. I have a huge soft spot for them and hope to have nethies again in the future. They are feisty little beasties but so full of character.

    Good luck in your search and I hope you'll pop in to show us some photos when the time comes.

    I have two as house bunnies. I love watching them - they are so entertaining whizzing around the place (they definitely are active and need space, but would agree that they are skittish. They are definitely NOT cuddley bunnies - sometimes they get up on the sofa and climb onto us, but if we ever try to hold them they wriggle away.

    Also - they do spend a LOT of time snuggled up together, and I would hate to think of either of them without a friend.

    i fell in love with nethies after saving one from a horrible fate.. Eli was my soul bun and he was so chilled and easy going, when i got Dot to keep him company he doted on her.
    he was a house bun and would climb onto my shoulder to sit with me for ages on an evening, he was very affectionate.

    i was devastated when i lost him but it also started me on my love for nethies, i have 2 now and a mini lop. they all live outdoors now but they still have that quirky sweet nature i love.

    It's not so much that Nutmeg was aggressive during the bonding, she was just very nervous to start with and thought every time they came up for a grooming that they were trying to attack her

    I am sure it is their nervousness and their 100 mile an hour attitude which has affected them when bonding, I am not convinced that it is anything else.

    Our Nethie, Geronimo is AWESOME!!! So affectionate to both bunnies and people. He is a cheeky monkey though and has bags of character. Have had no problems bonding him.

    I would say though that, although small, nethies need a lot of space as they are fast movers and our Geronimo loves different levels and jumping on things.

    Yup, agreed.

    The second time I tried Nutmeg stayed like this for about 10 minutes before I had to step in and move her.



    Despite that I think if they hadn't got into an unneutralised room which led to Nutmeg being injured I think we may have made it. She was just starting to understand and to groom Mini when that sadly happened.
