Can you offer some advice please. We have Jessie (male neutered 20 months) and Boo (femaile spayed 8 months) who were bonded for 4 months, this bonding went very well indeed. Although inseperable we felt that Jessie was a bit smothered and pestered by Boo and we fell in love with Buster a 4 month male. We brought Buster home and kept him seperate but let him run around in the kitchen while the other two were out of the room. When the pair next came in the kitchen they started behaving differently towards eachother, by the evening they were chasing and fur pulling quite viciously, so much so we had to separate them. We did not expect just the smell of the new rabbit would break their bond. Two futrther meetings of Jessie and Boo have been no better they seem well an truely to have fallen out. I will be taking Buster to be neutered as soon as possible (next week or two latest as he has already sprayed - something not experienced by us before) and once he is healed I would like to start to try and bond the trio or at least a pair. Please can you offer any advice for doing this as we were origionaly quite sure of how to proceed but this was very unexpected. We do have the offer of a loving home (wihin the family) for one rabbit if we only manage a pair as although we are managing the 3 separated rabbits it is not the best quality of life for any of them. These are all house rabbits.
Thank you for any advice you can give.
