My first bunny, angie (who passed away over 2 years ago =( ) was the sweetest girl in the world. she would groom me and was always by my side. when i would lay down, she would lay on top on my chest. Her most annoying habbit, and i know this sounds very strange, was that she would nudge my boobs then bite my nipples through my shirt. not only was it really bizarre, but it was also painful. i suppose she thought she could get milk out of them or just wondered what they were.
WELCOME KALIABUNNY. That is absolutely wacky isn't it??!!! For some reason my bunny, Rucy, will do that. I"ve had four bunnies, and this is the first one that has ever done that. What in the world?!!! At first I thought it might be because...well...boobs stick out and it's sort of an obvious target, but she would actually sniff around and then wham...YEEOOUCH $#!#. So now, if she even gets close, I'm like "BUNNY, BACK AWAY FROM THE BOOB!!!"
I know people who haven't ever experienced this or have never heard of it must think we're nuts, and yes it's freakishly bizarre, but it's true! Victims of bunny boob biters unite!
I think next time I'm at the vet, I am going to ask her about this crazy behavior. And if she's never heard of it, then she'll just think I'm crazy. That'll be awkward.
