    :( i know everyone always asks...but im going to book it in the beginning of august. im terrified. :( Calvin is now about a year old...is this okay? my boyfriend is still totally against the idea...because he has such an amazing character, but he has got the whole house to himself now...so im seriously considering getting him a girlybun. what do i have to do before and after the op?
    he is really really lovely but, he does still nibble on stuff....do you think i should go for it? :( im getting him microchipped too...ive booked that for the 5th of august, should i get this done at the same time or should i wait incase it gets him too stressed? he needs a myxi jab too...so i need that done...dont know whether to get it done at the same time? :(

    He'll be fine and I think getting him a friend is a great idea, ive never had any problems with bucks being neutered. Calvin would love a girlfriend to cuddle.

    i think he is a bit lonely really, althought he is having SO SO SO much fun now he can climb the stairs :) my 2 friends have having fun playing with him too :D he has 2 bedrooms all to himself :)
    does his wife need to be the same breed as him?

    Nope doesnt matter what breed she is, you should have a little look round rescues and see what kind of bun you'd like :) have a look here Rabbit Rehome - Adopt an unwanted bunny from a rescue centre ;)

    Aww he will be fine....Norman hasnt changed at all yet. Still a monster! LOL

    I think if they are young whether they have been neutered or not they are still active, they just get abit better with their hormones and litter training.

    Plus getting him done means you can have 2 BUNNIES! Im so jealous, OH wont let me have another as Normi is such a monster all by himself! Maybe one day? x

    I couldn't wait to get Miffy neutered. To begin with it was spayed because we thought he was a she but one day mum picked him up and I said to her I'm sure Miffy is a boy :eek: So we went to vets and the vet told us she was male! I was just glad it got noticed before we booked 'her' in to be spayed :eek: Not long after we got told he was a male he started becoming over friendly with me and would rattle his cage and refused to go to sleep but I wanted the male vet to do him so had to wait 2 weeks untill he was avalible. All went well and we kept him on newspaper (always have) plus some hay. Only thing is ever since he's been done he doesn't like me holding him and leaps out my arms and has escaped bad injury a few times. He only lets mum hold him now :(
