Rabbit/Gender News

Yesterday something strange happened. We found that our two rabbits were in the same space, that they had been fighting, and small drops of blood were everywhere. It was Mili who was bleeding, and he was wounded in his penis. He must have tried sexually to dominate Tuivel, who is older, bigger, and more aggressive. Tuivel must have bit Mili. We rushed him to the vet; he will be OK, but we will give him antibiotics for the next week.

I'm sure that this was neither a Bris or a more fundamental change of identity. Mili is lucky that his wound is no deeper than tooth marks. We worried that something more radical would have to be done. Considering his past gender confusion, we hope that nothing like this happens again.

Perhaps your Hedwig obsession is rubbing off?

Or, consider the possibility that the older, gruffer beast was simply experimenting, and forgot about the "Hey! No teeth! rule"?

The older, gruffer rabbit expresses himself too well with his teeth. Defenitely a big "no thanks!"
