Hello all, Unfortunately my beautiful rabbit Percy died on Thursday night from what the vets think was a heart attack at only 2 and a half years old. Thumper is the Blue/ Grey Bunny and Percy is the Brown Bunny. My other rabbit Thumper is now on his own. We brought him inside into a cage as the pair were outside together and obviously he is too small to keep warm on his own. We are currently in the process of clearing the spare room and that will be his room for free roam. I am now thinking about my options and what the best thing to do for Thumper is. He is eating well and had plenty of time with the body over the night it happened to realise his best friend had passed. Before I go and look for a new friend I would love to hear peoples experiences or advice. I have other animals including Rats and I understand the bonding process but from conflicting information online I am getting confused as to which gender would be better paired with him and whether a young bunny will need to be neutered before I begin the bonding process. Thumper is already a neutered Male. Thumper is also a little more nervous than Percy was. Percy was the confident dominant male and thumper would follow him. So I would love some advice around that. I am thinking a Lionhead rabbit to pair him with since that would also be a smaller breed with a possibly confident nature? As the room is not yet ready but should be by Monday the room he is going into will technically be neutral territory. My plan is to put Thumper into the room in his cage along with the new bunny (Obviously in a separate cage) for a few days so that they can see each other through the respective cages before the first introduction. Since the room would have never been entered free roam by either bunny I plan to let the two out into the room to meet each other and continue the process from there. I have a bed in the room which I will be sleeping in whilst this is all happening. Does this sound appropriate?
