Thread: Bonding Dillon and Cuthbert

    Every day since I started this thread the boys have had playdates together. Every other day I have switched the run around so that they are half in their old space and half in the other bunnies space. We have swopped bowl, balls and litter trays and the boys get fresh veg only when on a play date - what they dont finish goes back into their run over night. The run is lifted up so they can come and go as they please even into each others sides, they dont seem to be too bothered by which side they are in and sit with their head in the pellet bowl together - Dillon has junior pellets and Cuthy doesnt so I think that is why they both eat out of Dillons bowl.

    Tonight for the first time they are lying not next to one another but on top of each other. That is a good sign I think?

    They do some occasional half hearted humping usually with Dillon humping Cuthberts head.

    I still havent put the boys together in the run but when they are on playdate time they do both get in the same fleece and snuggle down to sleep. I have to split them up at bed time which results in a lot of foot thumping. I do wonder if they are telling me they are ready to have the barrier removed between them. They use each others litter trays, eat from each others bowls and sleep in each others fleeces.

    Forgive the bad photography.

    Going off the photo, they look very happy so I wouldn't separate them again.

    Thank you for your replies, they look for one another constantly and I am happy to leave them in the room together and just get on with life. I do find it difficult to cook with them out of the run as they come legging it into the kitchen and up my leg if they smell toast / hear a wrapper / etc etc

    That's a really lovely photo of two rabbits who want to be together

    I do find rabbits get 'angry' when us humans keep trying to tell them how and when to 'get along' together
