      I guess you can really tell when a rabbit owns a newbie human. I dropped off my male lop for neutering this morning, complete with a description of his’leaping about and spraying me for the last 2 weeks and continually humping the new bunny. Got a call at lunch from a laughing vet assistant that SHE didn’t need that type of surgery. Yikes, it sure is a lot easier to tell a gelding from a mare, isn’t it?

      Hahaha, my mom has horses – and yes – they are a little more obvious with the gender I had an embarassing (and unfortunate) vet visit once when I brought in a shelter bunny for a spay, and was informed (after they shaved her) that she had ALREADY been spayed (poor thing, got knocked out and shaved for no reason) you bet I got the bum treatment for like 5 yrs. after that one…

      OOOOP! LOL! Actually, this is not uncommon! I can’t remember your bunny’s name. Was it gender specific?

      Her/his name is Pringles, so I guess it won’t matter, she answers to the sound of the fridge door opening.  I imagine you did get the stink eye from the bunny being shaved!

      Several years ago I found a handsome white Tom cat.  I brought him home and discussed w/ my now ex if I could keep him.  He was sooo handsome!  Having been a cat owner for many years I knew how to sex a cat…well I thought I did.  It turns out he was a she and was pregnant w/ 5 kittens.  The kindly vet told me that when a cat is pregnant sometimes the genital area can look more "puffy" than usual.  Yeah OK…I’m a bonehead!

      Thank god it wasn’t just me!! lol…  Yes we bought "Bettie Bean" on the understanding from the people we saved her from that she was a she as she was to be my Bum’s girlyfriend.  First trip to the vet’s about a month back we told Bettie was a boy.  We were a bit taken aback, but continued life with our two boys.  Only last week when at the vet’s for part deux of vaccinations, i was told definitely a girl, 100% this time little girl and we could have our Bettie back.  Don’t know about anyone else but in the interim of having 2 boys, i just couldn’t bring myself to to NOT refer to Bean as my little baby girl!!

      oh, poor Bettie/Bertie….lol. I was told twice also by vets, that Pringles was a boy, just too young to neuter. I guess everyone’s warning that we need to use bunny certified verts is really true! Pringles has gone from what I thought was male spraying behavior to pulling her hair out so I guess a false pregnancy is next? Thank goodness we have a spay appointment next Wed by Dr. Bunny!

      Hmm maybe after all that gender changing she’s feeling the need to prove she’s a woman by making a nest

      You’re probably right MooBunny. I let Pringles in the 3 story condo I finished last night, she flew up to the highest point and stood up on her hind legs looking for all the world like she was beating her chest singing "I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR!"  If she figures out how to open the fridge by herself, I’ll probably be told I am expendable and please move out of her house…lol  Silly bunny. She still can’t change the litter box.
