The Bonding Game

Miss Eve was separated from Dom on Saturday, and after a day spent on her own catching up on food, she met Neville.
I, not a very patient bunny parent, sent an email to Amy at work on Monday:
Any news on Miss Eve and Neville? What can you say so far? How was she, and how was interaction?
Sorry to be a pain, but we've been wondering - anxious bunny parents!!!

A little bit later, a reply came:
Bonding seems to be going fine. I have seen Miss Eve grooming Neville quite a bit, and have seen him grooming her once too! :-)
She seems very much at ease with him, so perhaps is happier with a smaller partner?
I think they will be fine to go back on Tuesday if that's okay for you?

And today I emailed again...just to be sure and not wanting to jinx anything...
Any more news to "aaaaawwwww" and "ooooohhhh" on Miss Eve and Neville??

And soon the reply:
There has been plenty of mutual grooming from Eve and Neville…I feel like an intruder when I go into their room! LOL!

So, we've got a match finally! I am off now to put a bottle of sparkly in the fridge to welcome home Miss Eve and Neville, and also prepare a new litter tray filled with loads of fresh soft hay!

Yay! I can't wait to see pics of the happy couple! I'm still missing Hugo, but Miss Eve deserves to be happy.

I LOVE IT "i feel like an intruder when i go into their room" that's priceless...

and also why i only got one bunneh - i want her to bond to me and Lakota!

Thank you for the warning about the door. I do intend to take it off when she is allowed free roam privis. I was not ready for her to be taking off like that and kept trying to get her back IN the cage so i could leave!

How wonderful! We've got our fingers crossed, but it looks like they are going to be a great couple!
