Yes she WILL get used to you – but don’t do anything now that will spoil the natural progression (ex don’t frighten her or try to pick her up….).

Just sit with her. Get her trust by not doing anything that she doesn’t like. Make her know that she is now safe with you and in her forever home.

I’ve just brought home two cats i adopted and they spent the first 24 hrs in a cage in my living room. Just getting to know the noises the smells, not being to hide anywhere. They were very timid in the cage, sort of hiding, ears back not sure. My bunnies got used to them too without sprinting and making sudden moves, and when I let them out (I did stroke them gently in those 24hrs), they didn’t hide, they just explored, confident in their surroundings having spent 24hrs acclimatising. Your bunny will need more time than this.

Please be patient and keep writing in telling us her daily progress.
