Making Progress

As so many of you guessed, we are trying to bond Jensen with a friend. I had no posts for awhile, because it didn't look like it was going well, and I was sad about that. There had been initial interest, but neither Jensen nor Buttercup has many social skills, and negotiations broke down. Also, Buttercup seemed to be having difficulty adjusting to living in the center of the household. We may have finally turned a corner, as the face-biting has stopped, and Buttercup is not hiding all the time, and is actually approaching us for treats.  They have spent a lot of time munching on opposite sides of a gate lately.

Buttercup is about two years old, and comes to us from the House Rabbit Network. She was originally rescued from a hoarding situation, and has been in foster care for over a year. Like so many white, red-eyed bunnies, it has taken her a long time to find a home. I really hope this works out, 'cause I would hate to take her back.
So, I have two questions for my rabbit friends. Speedy can probably answer the first one. Are red-eyed rabbits more sensitive to light?
And, when you have two rabbits whose eating habits are completely different, how do you handle it? Jensen is the biggest eater we've ever had here. He's like a dog, food is the best 30 seconds of the day. Buttercup eats the least of any rabbit I've seen, and likes to graze. Got any suggestions about how to handle this when they are together full-time?
Finally, just for fun, here's a goofy picture I made for the LifeBook art class I'm taking this year. It's turning out to be a great learning experience.
