We have heard this a lot! Sometimes it is the instant reaction of unwrapping a 5 inch aperture door and a 6 inch diameter pipe. Then the rabbits bunch themselves up importantly looking rather plump and ignore it when first presented.

Over the years I have found many of these issues...

We have a very happily bonded pair, Polar and Bear, but it did take a good two-three months of them living side by side and meeting at a mesh chatting wall to achieve this. Bear was very happy with his first partner, Mouse, who died of...
