Despite being recently given a brand new run and the opportunity to play in the back garden, Bubby has turned increasingly anti-social. In fact, she has become quite vicious.

When I attempt to retrieve her from her hutch to put her in the run, she actually growls at me. I did not realise that rabbits can growl and hiss. She does this before actually attacking my hand. I have to wear Mrs H's gardening gloves to protect myself. Then when it comes time to go back into the hutch, she hisses, growls, and attacks me again. On the way back to the hutch this evening, she kept aggressively biting the glove.

We had been considering whether to get her a friend so she wouldn't be so lonely. At this point, it seems that she might kill it outright. A guinea pig would stand no chance. I'm not sure that a large dog would stand a chance. I'm not sure Bubby deserves a friend.

I had been thinking about a nice rabbit stew. Now I'm convinced the meat would be too tough to eat anyway.
