Panda

In long-term foster care with Lucy

Panda

Panda came in to Fat Fluffs suffereing from "cage rage". He had been bought as a child's pet and when puberty hit and his hormones became too much he started to get agressive. Rather than neuter him he was left in his hutch with less and less attention and he gradually became vicious and unmanagable. Fed up with his behaviour his was handed in to Fat Fluffs.
Even after neutering he was bent on attacking anyone and anything that went near him. After spending many months in rescue he finally came to me to be fostered as a house bunny in the hope that some one on one would help. At first he would attack anything, especially the broom. His matrix style boxes and kicks became the stuff of legend and he was renamed Kung Fu Panda. However out of the hutch and around humans he became much more person friendly, so much so he would eat food from your hand, as long as you were not holding a broom! He went back into rescue but once back in a hutch his behaviour deteriorated again. So Chloe volunteered to bond him in with my 3 other rabbits as a long term foster rabbit. The bond is the stuff of legend. It took 3 attempts and Panda lived up to his Kung Fu name. It took over one month to put them pack in neutral space. However now you would never know. Panda with 3 other bunnies to sit on him when he is too big for his boots is placid and even lets you pick him up without too much snorting. After 6 months I was allowed to stroke him and he will always hop on my lap for a treat.
If you have a vicious bunny, take heart. With neutering, time and tlc you can get there.
