The strangest thing happened this morning. We had our buns out running around the house with a gate separating the foster buns. Somehow our boy Shadow got out and we found him next to Jasmine’s cage flirting away. Shadow already has a mate, Sugar and usually the two are inseparable. Even when we bonded them there was never any fighting. It was an unusual case in which we came home and Sugar was in Shadow’s pen – they had bonded without our help. But today a love triangle was formed. I picked up Shadow from beside Jasmine’s cage and placed him back next to Sugar. Sugar must have smelled Jasmine on Shadow because she attacked Shadow and the two were in a brawl. Andy and I were shocked! Talk about jealousy. I quickly intervined and then put them back together. They ignored each other. Shadow tried reconciling by shoving his head under Sugar but she just bit back. How dare he be with another bun! They spent some time apart and then Shadow attempted to give her kisses. Eventually Sugar gave in. What a soap opera to watch. It was sad that they were upset at each other but I couldn’t help but laugh because the behavior seemed so human-like. Bunnies never cease to amaze me :-)
