AH.  Bailey says thank you.   And thank you very much for the website kudos.

There will be more bonding journals soon so look out for them.

Oh, good Tabby, I'm so glad the balding was due to molting.   Some bunnies do explosion molts that cause balding where others slowly shed over longer periods.

i will keep letting you know what happens and how well certain stuff works on him in case any of you have similar wound issues!

Whoohoo!   Yeah.  I am so happy to hear he is continuing to do better.    Hope you have a great time at your grandpa's birthday party.

Yay for Mr Dougal!  Glad to hear he's okay.  You won't have to be the "mean mum" any more and the bonding can really begin.  Binkies all 'round!

he still is getting the ear cream, i keep finding he is itching and still cutting it a bit. i'm not sure he secretly isn't doing it on purpose, cos though he doesn't like being held, once i'm massaging inside those little ears, his eyes shut with such a look of contentment! but he is so happy to have stopped having antibiotics now!

I wonder why he is still feeling itchy.  Maybe just the healing process.  As things heal, they can get itchy! 

So hopefully that won't go on for too much longer.

Hopefully your trip to Bristol was fun.  Now that you are back, and Dougal is no longer on antibiotics, how are you two bonding?

well i wouldn't say he considers me a "friend."

it's very strange. i mean, it's just the two of us, but he seems to be very happy in his own company. he'll ocassionally hop up to me, and he does give me nose nudges on my foot if i'm on the ground, but apart from this he will run if i'm even in the vicinity! maybe he doesn't like the ear creams as much as i thought, but i'm getting rid of it all or it might come back badly again... better safe than sorry.

i don't really mind him not liking me, and i'll take him to a rescue home once he's been snipped so he can choose himself a lady friend that is, unless he prefers his own company!

it might just take some time though, fingers crossed!

Ah, that is very sweet of you to accept him for his shyness.  It doesn't sound like "he doesn't like you".  These subtle behaviors though are actually positive signs as aloof as they may seem.  They are really his way of learning to trust you.  The nose nudges are how bunnies greet each other, so he's getting there.   Have you tried to confine yourself in a smaller area with him everyday?

I think taking him to a rescue group to find a friend is a wonderful idea!  Don't get discouraged if he isn't happy with the first few. Some bunnies are really picky, and like you said some bunnies do prefer to be solo, but that is unusual.
