    Yes, Minxie is vaccinated and has had health checks with the vet

    Just don't give her the chance to bite you. Is she in an indoor cage? I have come across quite a few rabbits which have become aggressive while living in these cages, partly I think because there is nowhere for them to run away and hide, as there would a hutch.

    This definitely.

    We have a beautiful lion head cross who is now 4 - she was adorable for about two weeks before we got her, then she became the monster you describe above for a few weeks before spaying and, once her hormones settled, she became adorable again. She’s now a soppy nearly four year old and she was sooo feisty before spaying. Just to reassure you! As a slave to peri-menopausal hormones myself right now I kind of understand how they go a bit crazy

    Also how big is her living space? A small space can add to territorial behaviour.

    She looks very lovely. Hope spaying calms her down.
