    I think my two bunnies Panda and Maisy are bonded (there is grooming, cuddling, they have an established pecking order) but Panda will still follow Maisy around and Maisy hops away. She doesn’t stomp, shriek, or grunt, or show any other signs of being scared of Panda. She flops with Panda in close proximity. Are they just playing, or could the not-quite-chasing become a problem later on?

    When Panda follows, are his ears forward or back? And does it resolve on its own?

    My Bun Jovi will slowly chase Bertha around about once every night or two, but his ears are forward, tail relaxed, so I think it’s him wanting to mount. But when she stops, he doesn’t mount. It usually only lasts about 30 sec or so, and they always end up cuddling and grooming each other right afterward. I was alarmed at first, but I think it’s just part of their relationship.

    Ears are usually forward. I kept intervening at first, because i did not trust panda, but today i left them mostly to their own devices during bonding time. It went fine. I’m paranoid because Panda has a history of being evil so whenever she moves toward another rabbit I’m like CALL ANIMAL CONTROL. She did this with her former buddy, too.

    They’re fully bonded and living in the same hutch now. The hutch they have is Panda’s (which she had not been living in during the bonding process, to make it a bit more neutral) so she was being a bit aggressive at first, but stopped after about 15-20 min.
