Grumpy Bunny

Post by bunny boy on Wed Feb 04, 2015 1:16 am

I went to the dentist today, joy joy!!! The bill hurt worse than what he did, anyway been going there forever, so everybody knows me, just happened to have my Bunny brag book with me, :study Laughing everybody thought he was just the cutest of course. One of the girls says her daughter has a grumpy nasty bun , he bites & scratches, he's 1 1/ 2 or 2 & he's neutered, he's apparently been like that since they got him, I said I would ask my H.H Group for help, all I can think is poor bun, he's not happy Hissy

There are a few reasons but the most likely are

A) he is frightened.  Something has happened to him and he is scared or in pain.  It's possible they have hurt him while handling him. How do they pick him up ?  

B) the second is that he is being fed a high sugar diet (a rabbit meusli for example) and then shut in a small space.  It's like feeding a boxer steaks and then shutting him in a cupboard and expecting him to be happy when you open the door.

I would siggest they change his food (slowly over a period of 10 or so days) and give him space to run.  Attempt contact slowly without picking him up teaching him he won't be hurt.

I agree with Katie.

The other option would be that they have him in too stressful an area. It could be that they are just too loud or there is a lot of through traffic without anyone stopping or there is another animal in the house that he is scared of. Or they could be picking up too much. Buns hate that.

Bunnies scratch and bit due to various reasons. 
Territorial, Fear, boredom and attention seeking or being unhappy and distressed for any reason really. I agree ask your friend to join or find out more about how he is kept, what he is eating, why he is alone, all about his environment and so on. 
Rabbits are not nasty, they purely act on their experiences.
