    so.....

    Pepper is 'home'! Just got back from Nottingham.

    He's currently out in the garden in a temp fenced-off area with Poppy outside that fence.
    Pepper's fine. Grazing & binkying about.

    Poppy is either
    a) completely not bothered
    or
    b) preparing to attack
    difficult to tell which.

    I will house them seperately tonight & introduce them 'sans chicken-wire' tomorrow.
    I have taken a couple of days of work (tomorrow & Friday) to do this. I think it's gonna be fine with a bit of patience.

    Fantastic.

    A scuffle first thing this morning - my fault, i put then together in a neutral area but i think it was all a bit sudden & they immediately had 3 scuffles, one after the other.
    I seperated them then let Poppy into the garden then let Pepper out as well & all's fine :-) A bit of chasing around etc but i could see it wasn't aggressive stuff & an hour later it's fine.
    Pepper went into Poppy's house & Poppy went in after him. I was expecting possible trouble but all's good & they are now back in the garden.

    Pepper is so lively! Tearing around & binkying.

    Poppy has gone down the bottom of the garden to eat pears that have fallen off a tree.
    While she's been gone Pepper took a while to check out the shed that Poppy sleeps in, do a few dashes around the garden and generally investigate everything. Currently grazing.

    11:20
    after 1/2 hr or so of them not really interacting at all there was a nose-to-nose moment & now they seem to be operating as a pair.
    Pepper is the most relaxed but Poppy is fine, she just currently likes to keep him facing him - i guess just in case he does something unexpected.

    and good news in as far as when Pepper decides to make a dash for cover, he either rushes into the rabbit shed or under the shrubs where Chester liked to go. There are shrubs & honeysuckle down the right hand side of the garden & there is a route between all the intertwining branches all the way up & down that Chester & Poppy have made in the past.
    (Chester is the bunny that passed away a month ago - Poppy's previous partner).

    12:00
    Pepper went into Poppy's shed & 5 mins later Poppy went in as well. I was alert for possible trouble but all seems OK. I couldn't see what was going on as I was keeping my distance but no untoward noise & 2 mins later Poppy came back out in a casual way.
    They are both back outside & moving about as a loose pair. Happy days.

    Looks like they are bonded.
    I was a bit worried putting them in the same shed overnight as they didn't seem 100% happy with each other when i first put them in but after being together all day i thought that if i seperated them it might makes things worse the next day, so i left them in together & went to check every 1/2hr or so until i went to bed.
    They've now been outside since 07:30 this morning & all signs seem to be that they are totally bonded. Operating as a close pair & Pepper is occassionally grooming Poppy.

    Pepper likes to eat Roses & strawberry plants.

    10:30
    ....I'm hoping nothing went wrong with Pepper's neuterising! (Poppy hasn't been done).
