First time posting first time rabbit owner. I rescued Peaches and she has been my 1st grade's class pet for over a month. She has taught them SO much compassion and responsibility. She lets them hold her, pet her, and hops in and out of their laps during "bunny time". She has never once bit a child or been aggressive.
However.. yesterday I forgot her bedding so I put paper towels in her cage. This morning I brought her regular bedding back and when I tried to take out the paper towel she came charging and bit me.. hard! I flicked her in the head and said "NO". She ran around her cage like crazy this morning and I have not let the kids near her. Now she doesn't even want to come to me when I open the cage, and she has ALWAYS wanted to come to people.
I'm taking her to an rabbit vet Monday and getting her spayed Wed. will this help? Is there something else I should do? Can I trust her with the kids?
oh, and she's an 8 month old (we think) lop.
