    I’m so glad it’s continuing to go well I think you should be proud of yourself, of providing the best conditions for the bunny bonding for rattling I used to stand the pen on a base of cardboard which seemed to help with that. But then you have the noise of bunnies digging at cardboard and shredding it if they can get an edge

    In my experience, yes! I can't get over pens, at 5' I'm waaay too short to go over ours, Matt (6'4") manages it just, half an inch to spare ;P

    Hi J&B, thanks for asking. Fudgie and Scipio are slowly getting there. They're co-existing quite peacefully, eating together and the occassional grooming. Scipio is being a bit of a sod for nipping though and it means that Fudgie is still a bit wary of him. He is gradually doing it less but I'm hoping he'll stop completely soon as Fudgie doesn't want to snuggle up to him at the moment as she's expecting to get nipped in the bum again!

    It's getting there, so it's good! Chibbs is a nippy little sod and it doesn't help anyone! She's not done it since being forced to live in Barrie's house so we're good for now. I hope it stops, Fudgie needs her confidence

    Thanks both.

    Fudgie has just snuggled up to Scipio! Scipio, please don't ruin it with more nipping!

    Oh bless, sounds like she's smitten with Scipio I've loved following this thread, it's always so nice to hear of a bereaved bunny finding new love and companionship. Well done bunnies, and well done SLH xxx

    Aww, that's great news. Snuggly bunnies I hope Scipio will stop the nipping so Fudgie will feel more relaxed with him.

    Thanks both. Unfortunately we haven't had any more snuggling since, but I know these things take time. On the plus side, Scipio seems to have calmed down with the nipping. Fudgie is confident enough to approach him now but does move away when he approaches her. I don't blame her for having trust issues, I'd be the same if someone kept nipping my bottom!

    I've been extending the space and they have the whole of the living room now. Thankfully no issues between them and they've had a great time exploring! Only the bedroom left now. I'll look to open that up in the next couple of days if they continue to do well.
