I have a female Hot Tot. She is about six months to seven months old. We keep her in a cage, outdoors during the day, indoors at night. I've noticed a strange behavior (and I might add that I've never owned a Hot tot before, always Dutches and Lops). When I bring her in at night, she hops back and forth at the front of the cage, getting up on her hind legs and putting her paws on the door. She does this with ALOT of intensity, and usually starts doing this as you approach the cage. Last night, she even started biting the door. I opened the door to put some hay in and she got up on her hind legs and bit my hand. She was so intense!!!
I've never had a rabbit do this before. Does she want to be taken out and held? Does she just want out to run? Is this a hormonal thing? Is it a territorial thing? Is my rabbit just super aggressive?
i tried to join a bunny message board last night to pose my question but I could not get past the stupid security stuff (where you have to type the letters that look all strange).
Thanks for any help!!
All our rabbits bit their cages mainly because they did not want to be locked in. We eventually created a bunny room and left their cages in it but always open. They were free to come and go as they pleased.
They became much calmer once we got them spayed. If you are not planning on breeding her, then you really should consider spaying. Our bunny had a false pregnancy when she was about 8 or 9 months old. She started lunging and biting - super agressive. Also non-spayed rabbits can get cancer...
