Hi,

So I am having the same problem. I left my bunny Qiviut (almost 3 months old) for a week, and had a friend pet sit her. Qivi was great with my friend all week, very gentle. When I came home and we played and everything seemed fine. This morning though (day after my return), I reached into her cage like I always do, to put her poop in her litter box ( she still poops a lot not in her litter box, but its getting better) and she ran out from her hutch and bit me. It hurt and bruised but didn’t completely break the skin. I was so mad but just ripped my hand away and said no. I then put my hand slowly in a couple seconds later and she nuzzled it.

Since Qivi was good with the pet sitter the whole time, and she is only 3 months I dont think its a territorial thing. I am wondering if I scared her (since I haven’t been there for a week), if shes mad at me, or if that was her morning poop she was planning to eat. 

Either way I don’t want her to think biting is ok. What should I do for the next time? If there is a next time
