Nutmeg and her sister were brought into Rabbitats when they were about six months old. They were surrendered to Rabbitats because the original owner was told they would be smaller rabbits, and grew too big for their liking.

Christina was looking for a companion for her single (at the time) bunny, Elliot. Just like humans, rabbits are social creatures and do very well in bonded pairs.

One of the Rabbitat volunteers thought that Nutmeg would bond well with Elliot, so off she went to her future home with Christina! 

At first, it was difficult for Christina to bond Nutmeg and Elliot. She had a hard time trusting Nutmeg alone with Elliot incase they fought. During the bonding stage, it is important to keep an extra close eye on the bunnies! Nutmeg taught Christina the importance of patience when it came to bunny bonding.

Nutmeg has settled in nicely. She is the more dominant bunny and enjoys taking the lead. Bananas are her favourite treat. Her water bowl is fascinating to her, and she really enjoys playing with it. Nutmeg is more of an explorer than Elliot, so Christina had to do more bunny proofing in their room.

Christina’s favourite part of having bunny companions are that they help her relax after a long day. With both bunnies having unique and different personalities, she’s never had a dull moment with them. Christina loves both her bunnies, and Nutmeg loves her new home.
