my bunny wont trust me!! she thumps when i come near her, and runs away. i got her a week ago,...
and she keeps getting scared by stuff. its not usually me thats scaring her......i think.....but now she doesnt trust me and it freaks me out almost as much as her when she thumps. when i try just sitting down on the floor and not doing anything, she stares at me like im some sort of monster. also, im afraid she gets even more scared when its time to get her out of the cage. the cage is a raised one, and if i dont take her out, she wont get enough exercise. what should i do?
Give her time! It takes more than a week to get a prey animal to trust you and relax and some never do. Trust me though, the more you handle her and keep her in a relaxed atmosphere, the better of a pet she'll be. If she was handled a lot as a baby, (really necessary to the process of socialization) then she just needs to get used to you as her handler, and if she wasn't... well, just keep trying.
