    Oh poor Bertie so he's blind? Which may explain why he can be aggressive if he gets spooked, poor little guy - and hey don't feel bad rabbits are a nightmare sometimes and tricky to tell with their eyes x

    Yes, it appears he is blind. There is no obvious signs or cataracts or swelling or trauma. He just has no responses. I guess its explains why he has got worse. When we got him he was cage territorial and would bite when you let him out. When he was out he hardly moved.

    Once he was cage free he became territorial as he got used to his new room.

    I need to research blind rabbit care.

    Yea sorry I have no advice or experience with a blind bunny. Maybe it would make bonding difficult too because he probably gets scared

    Aw, little guy, it does sound like it might explain the things you have noticed. Don't feel bad for not noticing.

    I don't have any experience unfortunately. I think binkyCodie has a bun with sight problems. Maybe start a thread for advice x

    Dont feel bad, it can be extremely difficult to determine if a Rabbit has impaired vision. Although Bertie may not be totally blind you may still want to have a read of this link :
