Default First problem with willow

thanks for reading, i have a first problem with willow. she really dislikes me, or is scared of me, everytime I put my hand in her cahe to pet her or get her food dish she tries to attack me, so i put my hand in wrapped in a towl and stroke her side, but she gets really agressive, if i pick her up she does her best to bit and attack me but if I hand her to my sister she sits there quite content. is she just scred of me?

She's probably really territorial. It's usually best to never do anything with a rabbits cage while they are in it. If you can let her jump out on her own everytime you want to do something with her that would be the best. And it sounds like she should be the first one to get spayed if you do do it.

ok, havnt read the article yet but will do. I know I shouldnt go near her in her cage but i cant let her get out herself, its a top loader and she cant reach the top, and plus we have to keep their cages out the back and we have to let them out inside soemtime. But the thing is, she only bites me, no-one else.

Is it possible that she smells something on you that she doesn't (or does) like? Do you eat before you handle her?

My bun Sam is like that. I have had her since the day she was born and I handled the kits all of the time but she is such a brat! It could very well be that she isn't happy smelling Thistle on you. Try handling Willow first and see if that helps. Spaying her should also help her to calm down and maybe be a bit less territorial.
