    Default Hiding food?

    Cookie started a habit he had never done before. Whenever I give him a Fibafirst, he grabs it from my hand and he hides and eats, taking it away from me. He only does this when Fibafirst eats it. Why is he doing this, why is he hiding Fibafirst from me when I gave it to him?

    Casper and Sophie do this, too, with food they especially like. I think they just want a safe space to eat it in peace, without having to worry that you change your mind and take it back.

    Some Rabbits will run about with them in their mouth like a dog with a stick

    Blossom does this too. Its a high value food and she likes to find a safe space to eat it.

    Our late bun Flopsy used to run around in circles and binky when given his favourites like broccoli.

    Haha yes, exactly. He takes Fibafirst and running away. I've never changed my mind, I wonder why they do this?

    Haha yes I get this too with dandelion root, fenugreek crunchies and fibafirst. Rupert especially will run around with it in his mouth until he finds a satisfactory spot to eat it. I find it really endearing.

    Haha yes, really cute. But Rupert's list seems pretty extensive.
