    Default Phillip and Snowy’s bonding journey

    Day 1

    We have a makeshift pen on the kitchen floor. No fighting thankfully but lots of mounting from Phillip. We let him do that for a while but pushed him away when we he mounted her face. Snowy just looks so sorry for herself! For a rabbit with a heart condition, Phillip has a lot of stamina o_O
    Should we just let him continually mount her? I feel awful for her!

    Here’s a photo of the current situation, spot Snowy hiding from the pest

    Awww I'm really glad you started bonding, it sounds like Phillip is having a hoot! Does snowy tolerate the mounting?

    Yes she seems to as the moment which is why we’ve not stopped him. She ran away just now so she’s certainly not enjoying it but she’s not gone for him...yet. He just mounts her constantly though and not sure if that is normal or a good sign?!

    We had the constant mounting when I bonded Tethra and Tui. She would tolerate it briefly, but then run away. I don't think it's a problem if the doe can run away, if it doesn't make her angry and aggressive and if the mounting is not on the face, I think he will soon get the message and stop doing it. He still does it, but only very rarely.

    I hope it continues to go well.

    Maple will not tolerate any humping and would immediately start a fight, never would run away. So think that's a good sign from snowy so far

    Joey is a right sex pest during bonding. You should find it calms in a day or 2. I only interupted if he was excessive or on the wrong end though I was tempted to leave him on the naughty step. Happy bondy vibes for you buns, sounds likes its going well & running the usual course
