Adopting another bunny.. . .

Post by no » Sun, 19 May 1996 04:00:00



Can anybody give me advice on adopting another bunny?  I have a four
month old male lop.  We are going to bring him to get fixed soon, and
I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get another bunny (most
likely a female).  What are the pros and cons of having two rabbits in
the same cages?  I only have time to let my bun out at night, because
I am gone most of the day, so it would be nice if he had some company
while I am gone.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Nancy!!

My male bunny, Moka, was 2 1/2 yrs old when I adopted Chloe, a female.  I
went through Rabbit Rescue (or House Rabbit Society).  I brought Moka with
me so HE can select his buddy and I do not regret it one bit.  I also
spend most of the day (and evenings) out so they keep each other company.
In fact, I find it amusing how they groom each other, follow each other
and run to the other for cover (Chloe is a very nervous bunny) However, I
do not keep them in a cage.  They have full control of my apartment. --
IMHO, get your bunny a buddy.

I have Wooley Bear in with two old girls, Wolley is fixed and the girls
are not. They are very disapointed with him!!!  But they get along, to
the point Wooley is spoiled rotten.  If I had to do it again, I have
heard that if you leave the buck intact and nuter the does you dont have
to worry about babby buns, the girls wont get cancer of uterus, and the
buck and the girls can have fun all day with out the girls the wiser!!
They think he is doing his part and you wont see the looks of
disapointment on their face that Wolley does.  (I have seen this look,
it ain't nice).
