    Default Freddy my 9yr old Lionhead - U/Date 07.04.18

    Freddy just lost his long-term wifebun Tracey. I was quite concerned yesterday as he seemed miserable but today he was excited to see me coming round with his food. So he is obviously feeling ok. I am thinking I might try bonding him with two 8 yr old sisters who used to live with Jason who I lost a couple of months ago. There is also someone with a 9 yr old Lionhead female looking for a friend for her but after all these years I don't really want to part with Freddy Also she may not accept him.

    I'd try the sisters first for 2 reasons. It keeps your elderly boy with you & in an environment familiar to him; secondly for elder buns I like the idea of groups & there is still rabbit company when one passes

    Sorry you lost Tracey . I don't think there's any harm in trying the trio. Good luck with whatever you decide x

    I have put Freddy in with the 2 girls. One of them got a bit funny for a second or two. I spoke to her sternly and 2 hours in they are quiet. I didn't have a neutral space unless I brought them indoors but I spend much of the day outside, so I did a scary thing really but I know these 2 are not aggressive. So, hopefully he has company now and they will grow to love him.
