However, even if your bunny will likely want a friend, don’t expect him to welcome another of his kind enthusiastically at first sight. Two buns only become pals for life after they’ve gone through a process called rabbit bonding.
That will really depend on your bunnies. Like with humans, some rabbits click with one another instantly, while with some, it takes several encounters before they finally learn to like each other.
If you’re lucky, your two fur babies will like each other on sight, although that rarely happens. What’s more common is for two rabbits to slowly get used to each other until they become best buddies.
To ensure a successful bonding and hasten the process, there are some things you can do.
It’s tempting just to let both your rabbits loose and see how they deal with each other. But this method carries some risks.
Taking some steps before a face-to-face encounter between your rabbits is, in our opinion, a better alternative. Here’s how to go about helping your buns become friends for life:
Let your rabbits get used to each other’s scents
Let your bun see each other
Put them together
Letting go or keep trying
Introduce the rabbits to their living space
