...are off to the rescue centre tomorrow :(

Don't worry, it's not a permanent stay, they are going to, hopefully, be bonded... so fingers and paws crossed it all goes well!

it will cost me almost £40 but I feel it would be better to do it this way with someone else rather than me worrying and panicking

Oooh hope it goes well - keep us posted. I wish I'd considered this option when I first got Rory as I never did manage to bond him with Rags

thanks guys! yeah I thought it would be quicker and more intense and the rescue centre get some money :) I called yesterday and they said so far so good!!

Do you think they would share a litter tray or need their own ones??

depends how much space they have, I would start them off in your kitchen or half the kitchen give it a good scrub put some vinegar down too and a few old towels or carpet the lino floors should also deter any serious fights. I would imagine chesters sofa and sofa burrow will need blocking off and anything else they consider theirs lol.

Oddly enough, the first thing I did was give downstairs a huge clean up!! and yes, Chesters burrow will be a thing of the past soon.. I'm re-upholstering it (or trying to) as when Rosie has been in there, she is actually worse and starts to dig at it, at least Chester just sits in it!!

Its the food Im woriied about, Rosie nails all her pellets first thing were as Chester has a delicate nibble and saves some for later.. Rosie will track it down and eat the lot!

lol i was worried about feeding too Miffy was such a gobbler it put me off getting a bigger rabbit as a partner.. but it now seems about even sometimes 1 will want to eat all the veg and the other all the pellets and then the next night they'll both be eating from the same bowel. neither 1 looks thin or is bullied so i think u just have to keep an eye on them

We were meant to get them today but I called up and they still are not bonded as Chester keeps pulling at Rosies fur :( I have decided to leave them there until Thursday.. not sure what I will do if they are not bonded by then :(

Sending calming vibes to Chester in the hope he will stop pulling her fur. Boy, I must have lucked out with my two. One half day and they were bonded - there was some thumping with Amos when Pickles came near him - but the soon ended. Hope your two are soon bonded. x

aw thanks.. I hope it stops.. I did call and tell them that Chester understands the command 'no' :nono: and if you put your index finger on the bridge of his nose with a little pressure until nhe calms it does (hopefully) work.. that's how we got him to stop nipping everyone.. He is an intelligent bunny and is whistle trained too.. unlike Rosie who is very dim bless her :D

Thanks Lollie, it is actually Chester doing the nipping, Rosie is so laid back and has never bit anyone, you can do anything to her and she just doesn't care at all.. she is a rabbit angel! (if she was not so messy!!)
