    I don't want Mouse to die lonely - I'm sure we are better than nothing but we never made it to honourary rabbit. I am entering this in the spirit of trying rather than being determined to make it work

    Shall I upload photos & share observations so far?

    thank you. She deserves the chance

    so this was yesterdays session

    [IMG][/IMG]

    I tried first in a sectioned off lounge area - quite big but with nothing to jump, hop or run under. I knew it was controversial bonding in Mouseys room but during quad bonding this was where it went best (if ultimately unsuccessful). I also wanted to give Mouse, traditionally a submissive bun, a little confidence boost. Lesson learnt ...bonding rules DO apply to my rabbits (sometimes )

    So Boo bimbled about, Joey looked for an escape & Mouse became super excited - her ears were all forward & curious. She started to look grumpy about being ignored & hobbled over to Joe at the fence. He, typical for him as he hates bonding, was all tense but not aggressive. They went nose to nose asking each other for groomies, no bun obliged

    Shortly after Mouse approaches Boo, grunts & goes to bite her on the back. Intercepted. Mouse later charged to Joe who was in the litter tray - I'm unsure of her intentions . They had been scrubbed in bleach solution but obv they look like Mouseys normal litter trays & were in the same place

    So I ended that session after 10 minutes as it was clear Mousey was both excited about seeing her old rabbit friends but also conflicted as she has over time become territorial over her land.

    Today I had them in a sectioned off bit of the kitchen.

    It had a nice calm vibe & lasted a good few hours. Boo was superchilled for most of it, ate all the goodies, snoozed & had a nose to nose with Mouse (no groomies)

    Boo & Joe had a wee spat (equivalent of 2 cats up close hissing at each other) & Boo did some nips headed for Mouseys face. I intercepted.

    I don't have photo evidence but the best bit is Joey gave Mouse kisses on her head & let her snuggle under him. She looked happy to be having first bunny loves in 4 months.

    I'm not doing a non stop bond til there is no sniping & spats the whole session. Mouse is so interested in J&B she doesn't eat much during the sessions & she's too delicate to push it fast
