It has been a lovely sunny and warm weekend in Nottinghamshire, and I took advantage of the situation to give the chance to meet on a neutral territory to Hugo and Casey. A week ago, Amy (another local bunny mum) came to us with Casey (a three-year-old Dutch bunny girl from Honeybunny's Rehoming Rabbit Rescue in Leicester) to try to bond her with Hugo. I have thought that this time, instead of having a completely spoiled single bun or single buns, I'd rather have a couple, so they both can be spoiled, and can keep each other company when work takes me away from them.
Unfortunately, unlike the first attempt, that ended with Casey running away (she was a bit scared by everything new, including this white bunny that kept on humping her...LOL!), Casey decided that the best defence is attack, and that she did, with Hugo's fur flying all over the place. I quickly picked her up and put her in the other run, lucky to have avoided blood being drawn. So, they had two hours in the sun, digging and sniffing at the green blades of grass, and in the case of Hugo, arrassing me to go back inside. I think he needs to get used to spend some more time outdoors!
So, tonight Amy is going to pick them up both and try the bonding at her house. I hope it goes well, otherwise we shall try Hugo out with another bunny girl. Keep your fingers and long limbs crossed for us (the bunnies may cross their ears, if they please), will you?
