Bonding Update

We are still working on the bonding, in a two steps forward, one step back kind of way. It has never taken me so long to get a pair to bond before, but both Buttercup and Jensen seem to have some social anxiety issues. We decided to stop working on it for awhile (except for swithching their spaces back and forth), and work on Buttercup's issues. She has had a hard time getting used to being right in the middle of the house, but she is getting there.  She will now come running for morning 'nana' and bedtime craisins, and sometimes she even sticks around for some pats.

Here are some pictures of yesterday's lunch.

 
Buttercup eating salad, Jensen wishing he were. Don't feel bad for him. He had more than her, and ate it all before she even started. After eating salad, you must always wash your face.

 
And your back, too. What? You don't do that? Barbarian!
 
 
After her bath, Buttercup wants to get in the other room. Not because Jensen is there. Because the tunnel is there. Buttercup loves the tunnel. 

 
Since she is getting happier, we have resumed bonding rides.  
 


Hopefully they take to each other soon. The gates are getting to be a hassle....

Poor poor Buttercup. What hell had she gone through to be shy and scared? People make me sick.
It WILL happen, K. I promise it WILL happen. They look OK together for bonding rides.

Yay for progress!

Sometimes a bun needs to get used to the household in general before they're ready to accept a bondmate/companion. Here's hoping for continued success!

Good luck with the continued bonding....

I always wash my face after eating salad, i didn't know about the back though!
