Bonding bunnies

For the last few months I have been trying to bond JT and Meadow (son and mom). Really I have only done it a handful of times; it's not something I have time for when we have fosters. I can skip the first few steps of the bonding process since they have always been near/around/aware of each other. They never fight when I do have them together in the same space. My hope is to get them bonded soon and move JT into Meadows pen. When I do that I will add a 3 story pen I got from Rabbit Haven. Hopefully having something new and changing her pen a bit will make it less offensive when JT moves in. Here are some bonding pics.

The first 3 pics are the 2nd bonding session, in the bathtub. I didn't get pics of the 1st session, which was in the garage in a dog pen.

Since the guest bathroom is taken by the boys I have done 3 or 4 more sessions in a carrier.

They look like they get along, but there is still some work to do. Meadow thumps a lot and they do their fair share of dominance humping. Soon I will take them on a car ride.

The Answers

I was hoping to have gotten more replies than I did. Thanks to those of you that actually did try. Some answers could have been found on my blog, but not all of them.

1. Cinnamon, Bambi, Clint, Gerald, Meadow, JT and Hazel. That is 7 total. No fosters right now (thank God).

2. Cinnamon, Bambi, Clint, Gerald came together, all the way from Reno, NV.

3. They are both white, mini Rex's. The only difference is that Meadow has straight hair, JT has wavy hair. But when I have them side by side, it's REALLY hard to tell them apart. Since they are both fixed, if you turn them over and look at their "naughty bits" (as Paula called them) they look the same.

4. JT is named after John Taylor, from Duran Duran. THE BEST BAND EVER!

5. A Houseful of Rabbits.

6. Clint is missing part of his ear. (Gerald has the droopy face, but not in this pic.)

7. JT is my fav.
