I have a one-year-old mixed breed rabbit named Zoey, who used to be bonded to her sister. Sadly, her sister passed away and, since Zoey has been declared healthy, we have been on the hunt for a hubby for her.
First, we went to a trial period with a rabbit named Ben. Zoey hated him and vice versa. He was over-interested in her and constantly annoyed her, so they always fought. After a month of that we went back to the drawing board.
However, we are kind of stuck. Zoey will groom him pretty much every session multiple times. But when she doesn’t groom him she is constantly trying to nip his underbelly to get him to move out of his litter box.
We have had a lot of success with the bathtub but they have to move on from it since they do nothing in there.
I took out the litter boxes and try to correct Zoey every time she goes to nip him because he rarely fights back, but I don’t know how to stop all of her territorial behavior.
I hope they work this out soon.
