    Thanks Tonibun.

    The space is quite big. They aren't in the actual bath.

    I just want him to eat and then he can hump away again.

    What am I waiting for with the humping? What will make him stop? Just time. Or will she submit and let him be the humper?

    As you've said on your other thread, she has only been spayed very recently so she is probably still very hormonal so that might be why there is a lot of humping. At least they aren't chasing and fighting, humping is normal. Have you seen the bonding sticky, there's an excellent video on there by mischief and tinkers mum of her bonding a trio, and it illustrates what is normal very well

    Sorry Zoobec but it's just the same if you are bonding spayed/non spayed rabbits. She will keep running away for up to 3 days, it might not be for that long if you are lucky and if you are very lucky there is no chasing, humping etc, they just get on from the start. Have you tried him on something he really likes and have they got a pile of hay to nibble at intermittently

    I have seen it. We literally only have humping so I'm really not worried any more.

    There has been no signs at all of any aggression so I'm very positive.

    He's not been so bad the last hour. And has eaten some grass out of his grass patch. So I'm happier about that now too

    It's hard to not be completely relaxed and just leave them to it. Cause I'm pretty confident.

    I've now left the room and got the spy camera on. And Oggy is quite happy kissing her, not as much humping either!!


    I will try to upload some pictures!!

    Glad he has eaten some grass - you're getting there! Just give them time.

    Yes, I know there is usually lots of humping, I meant the hormones might explain that there is a lot of incessant humping involved.

    He's now obsessed again. I know it's completely normal. And I'm trying not to think about it too much. But I just feel so sorry for her.

    She doesn't seem too bad but every time she tries to eat, Oggy does his wasp impression and tries to hump her. She just hops off. But he follows.

    I know this is normal. And hopefully time will make this better.

    Oi, keep it in you pants Oggy!

    Looks and sounds like it's going really well. Hopefully Oggy will hump himself out soon.
