    Sorry to hear you are in pain.

    Lovely to see Enfys with rabbit company. See what you mean about her lovely big white ringed eyes. Hope all continues to go well.

    Day Two - 11.15am

    Enfys and Morning still occasionally startle each other. They are all settling and relationships are getting better over time. Yuki and Enfys are particularly getting on well which is so lovely. Curious girlie is curious, and incredibly fastidious with her grooming. I've even seen her sploof briefly now! Right now everyone is really chilled. I just hope they can stop startling one another!

    Day 3 - 11.40am

    Enfys has occasionally tried to assert dominance. Poor old Elphie often gets caught in the fray, often ending up on her back briefly. It really highlights just how frail the poor girl can be these days. As usual, we've had the whole Morning and Enfys starting each other off on occasion, and that's when things happen. But, none of it has been particularly fear inducing in terms of the future of the bond. I do think that Morning and Enfys simply need to work out their boundaries with one another, and that is only something that will come out over time. Because they are both easily spooked, it starts each other off, and as the space is so small it catches everyone up. I think I might move them into the next phase tomorrow in spite of this, because it might actually help with when things get overwhelming.

    Yuki remains smitten, of course. He absolutely adores her. There's been lots of grooming involving Enfys, including Elphie actually grooming her briefly. Same with Yuki and Niji both giving and receiving them from her. The only rabbit that doesn't really interact with her is, of course, Morning. And as I hoped, Yuki and Niji are irritating each other less. So, over all, I am happy.

    And also, yesterday, this happened:

    Oh wow, just adorable!! Looks like it’s all heading in the right direction. Fingers crossed that they all continue to behave themselves and moving into phase 2 is successful!

    It's been a while but I thought I should update. They are still all together and doing well.

    Given how skittish Enfys and Morning are, I eventually decided to throw the rulebook out the window and try things differently. About 2 weeks ago, I unblocked their pipe and gave them their entire space. Including a little more than previously used to. Enfys is a lot happier knowing she has a safe place to dart - into the pipe. Morning can now go up and downstairs to her heart's content (although blind, she's the only one who does! Aside from Elphie, we occasionally take downstairs the boys and even Enfys.) And they are all doing well together, in spite of the heat. Doing this has more-or-less eradicated all of the chasing and squabbling. I couldn't be happier. I think Arce's happy too; she sent me a white feather, clinging to my car door.

    Enfys will never not be a timid bunny, but today, I gave Elphie her pain relief and tried to sneak some pellets. All 5 begged for some, INCLUDING Enfys Button. She even happily rested her paws on my knee and gently accepted a couple of pellets. I'm so proud of them.
