    Following an arranged meet up, we purchased a male rabbit from a rescue centre to be bonded with our female rabbit after she unfortunately lost her other half. :(

    Since then we have done several face to face meet ups in a neutral area. These sessions consisted of common bonding behaviour between rabbits e.g. fur pulling, nipping, chasing. However, it feels like we aren't seeing any improvement between them. Because of this, we have planned to get them professionally bonded together to give them the best possible chance.

    This is due to start on the 24th of this month but we are somewhat stuck on deciding whether to continue the face to face meetings or completely stop them. At the moment they both live side by side in the female rabbits area split up by a mesh fence where they are swapped daily. (which isn't the best setup - I know).

    So the question i wanted to ask is whether we should continue swapping them between areas and continue the face to face meets or completely stop the face to face meets to give them the best chance when they are sent to be bonded?

    All help is greatly appreciated. ;)
