We've Been Labouring Under A Misapprehension [Mar. 18th, 2011|11:50 am]
Tony Grist

Turns out our two girly bunnies are boys. That would explain two things. 1. The friendliness. 2. The ultra-violence. Hopefully neutering will sweeten their dispositions.

The manager of the shop who sold us them as certified females has expressed his sorrow by making us a gift of some rabbit food and bedding. We didn't want to cause a stink, but we thought he ought to know.

Castration costs less than spaying- so there's an upside. 

They'll keep their names. Shally and Shaz (short for Shalimar and Sharon) are sufficiently gender-neutral.

I really hope the neutering works. I have found that with dogs, neutering helps but doesn't curb the territorial instincts that arise. Maybe it's different with bunnies.

I'm hoping they'll work out who's the king of the warren and then settle down. Rabbit society is very hierarchical.

Rabbit ultra-violence! I just had visions of a bunny Alex giving 'the look'.

We had a rabbit a few years back whom we christened Little Alex. He was so violent we had to return him to the shop.
