        So the other day, I went down to the pet shop for a small dog bone with my fiancé, we ended up rescuing a Rabbit. Don’t ask me how it happened but the little twat had a sparkle in his eye and we brought him home.

        Ever since we have gotten a minor bond with him,  he is constantly trying to hump me. I know.. Alot of people say get him neutered, but his nuts haven’t dropped yet so they are tucked away and we have been advised to wait until they drop. So in the mean time I’m stuck with Hugh Heffner as a Rabbit and id like some tips on how to calm him down slightly, because he has a lovely nature.

        Thanks guys

          How old is he? His testicles may be closer than you think. 😉

          In the meantime, you could try using a stand-in. A lot of people use a stuffed toy. Simply redirect him to that whenever he starts humping.

              They dont actually know mate, they said between 1 and 18 months. You know what a stuffed toy is not a bad idea i will most certainly try that, i cant get the fucker off my arm after 5 minutes of binkying around the room. I mean hes probably living his best life but yano.

              Thanks for the tips mate.

              LOL 😆  I would take him to the vet to have them assess.  Sometimes older buns will “suck” their testicles back up when nervous. At any rate sometimes it can take a while to get an appointment for neutering so might as well start the process.

              He is very likely older than 1 month because they stay with their mom until 2 months. Hormonal behaviors usually start around 3-4 months, so I would say he’s at least that old. If you post a picture we may be able to take a guess.

              I agree a stuffy is a good idea. When I volunteered at the shelter we had a number of stuffies that we would give to the unneutered buns so they could get out their frustrations, there was one shaped like a hedgehog that was particularly popular  😆
