is my rabbit, and her age is probably three to five(ish) not to sure as she
was a rescue rabbit. Bimberly started off as the most nervous and
aggressive rabbit possible, simply walking past her hutch would set her
off growling at you. She had had little contact with any humans and had
been alowed to run free range around a garden for most of her life. After
several weeks I began to notice a change in her, no more growling :) and
although I had picked her up before this to move her from hutch to run and
so on, this was the first time she had been completely fine about it, in
fact she seemed to love it. Now I seem to be the only person she trusts
and she will only let other people near her with me there telling her
"It's okay, they're nice."
Recently I started playing in the garden a lot with her and found out that
if you roll a ball toward her she'll roll it back, like playing a game of
football. I'm trying to get her to roll it into a net (a cardboard box
turned on its side) so we can have 'proper' game with her. Maybe I could
even teach my guinea pigs and they could compete!
Bimberly was ehe first rabbit I ever owned and I love her so much for what
she's taught me about myself. She taught me how to be more dominant (so
that I'm not obeying the rules of small fluffy creatures all the time) but
to be kind about it. She helped me to find the right balance of hugs and
cuddles and understanding when she needs her own space. I love her very much.
