Not so long ago my little rabbit Ash, had a generously sized play pen.
However, he now has to manage with a much smaller space for a couple of weeks or so.
All because of Lily, his little companion to be.
She is in a smaller space still.
I have been assured by the breeder that this is the correct way to go, so with excitement and some trepidation about the difficulties of rabbit bonding, I brought Ash his new baby *sister*.
Lily doesn't seem phased by anything and compared to how Ash was when he was a baby, she is not the slightest bit skittish.
So when I put them in their separate compartments for the first time, they turned their backs on each other.
Lily didn't think there was a big deal to the meeting, though Ash sniffed her rear end but seemed quite friendly in a nervous kind of way.
After a while they began to ignore each other and just get on with life.
At one stage they did kiss through the bars though, so I guess they are going to bond.
Watch this space as I hope to get some pictures of them grooming each other.
Sorry, all you folks who don't like rabbits except in a meal, just bear with me and I might return to normal, (whatever that is).
