So my threesome is now a twosome. BUt there is a big age gap between buttercup and Millie. Millie was very close to violet (RIP) and they are feeling her loss. Now I also have captain jack and flossie In Question Another cage, wonder if I should try bonding them all? Or just get another friend for my sad girls?

Might be worth while bonding them all, neutral area is best Smile

I'd try to bond them as a group, it's far better if you can.

I got a girl, Minnie who wouldn't bond with my other three girls so I got her a neutered hus-boar & they bonded great. I've since bonded all 5 & it's really nice to see them all interacting together. A male sometimes has a calming effect on the girls. We've probably still got a few days of good weather left so if you've got an outdoor run, try them altogether supervised maybe 2 or 3 times for an hour or so. If there's no big problems then try them all together next time you clean their indoor run or cage. Best to supervise for a while but as long as there's no blood or mouthfuls of fur it should work OK. Good Luck.

Well i was well into progress yesterday scrubbing the cages in advance and I had both couples seperated until I was ready with the bath for some neutral ground or the outdoor run, then I had a visitor which impeded the time I had put by for the bonding session and baths etc.

So a day later and still no bonding Sad 
So I'm off to do some baths now and then were having some indoor bonding. Ekk. Just having my cup of tea and a bit of browsing then we'll see. Fingers crossed
