    I would be very encouraged by this I'm disappointed that they had to separate them at night, as I would have thought it might have prolonged the overall process, but at least there's no harm done and it's better to have done this than to have had no-one capable to watch them.

    I assume you have an absolutely neutral area to put them in for the weekend? You've also got the rest of today and all of tomorrow to cement the bond and calm things down. I also think dp's suggestion of continuing with the bonder next week is good.

    I think it's cautiously positive

Working on the assumption no news is good news I hope the next update is that they are more confident of them getting there eventually.

    Maybe you should update you thread title to reflect the positivity you, I & others have that this one will not be a disaster
    Sorry for some reason my phone hadnít been telling me you guys have replied today!

    Yeah thatís exactly how I am on the inside but I try and keep it in and trust the experienced people know what they are doing, itís been hard I wonít lie with many bedtime tears.

    I would but I donít think I can from my phone, I tried hard on another one of my threads and couldnít find a way via the app :-/ and indeed the update (above) was good but brings new worries and anxiety. Lol.

    Could they take them back after the weekend to continue the bonding?
    It sounds really positive and it sounds like they just needed someone who could withstand watching all the dominance/defensive behaviours. It's never easy and takes a certain kind of strong to cope with it x

    Sorry I havenít been getting all your replies till now :-(

    I donít know, my OH called but the man there apparently is going to call me tomorrow to go through it all etc. I can ask but annoyingly it is an hour away so I donít know if thatís not great plus itís really cold there so they will be going from outdoor temp, to 15-20 degrees back again to outdoor temps.

    Just more for me to worry and obsess about lol!
    Yes I think your right, I just needed to find the right people to ďdeal withĒ Truffle the ďnot nice, unbondable bunnyĒ x

    Yes Iím not sure what the separation was about when I was told a lady does a night shift and sleeps with them. But at least itís all moved forward in the right direction finally.

    The area we are putting them in is truffles old hutch which is made of a converted cabinet unit, but I have over the last few months used pet stain, pet Oder remover and finally vinegar so it smells of nothing. Plus we have moved it into the kitchen (although he doesnít seem to recognise his own territory anymore anyway).

    Yeah I can ask, but I would worry about the long journey, getting them in the carrier because Truffle flips out, and drastic temp changes to fast :-/
    I donít know, itís really hard because they arenít as far along as I would like before coming home. X

    I had to separate my poppets at night for a while, there was no chance of sleeping on the job. Good luck with next decisions

    Thank you :-)
    Yes thatís what Iím worried about is us being ready to deal with them at this stage in their bonding. We are thinking of moving our mattress downstairs or something perhaps so we are nearby at night.
    Itís hard because itís great news, but still not quite there....

    You seem to be still having a tough time with the bonding - nothing seems straight forward for you all, does it?

    Sending loads of vibes for you all. I really, really hope this works out

    So Iím trying to think up questions for when he calls tomorrow, this is what I have so far;

    1. What happens as soon as we get home?
    The ďhutchĒ has two layers, can they have both or do we need to restrict to one level?

    2. Cats ok to be seen, or too much for them at first? Can use puppy pen in front with a blanket as a shield if needed.
    Do cats need to sleep somewhere else?

    3. How to feed them? Where?

    4. Litter tray ok? One?
    Is noise ok, I.e. Christmas?

    5. Can they have them back Monday if the bond isnít strong enough or breaks down?

    6. Next steps on how to proceed?

    7. What do we do if they fight? How do we pre spot it?

    Iím getting really anxious about getting them back now, I know it doesnít help :-/

    I know right!! We just donít seem to have much luck. Thing is I donít want it to go wrong because of us, when I know we are rubbish and inexperienced which is why we asked the pros xx
