my husband and I are expecting...  
another bunny! We both feel so bad that Pipkin spends so much time alone while he's at work and I'm at school. Not to mention, we have to put him in his cage at night, because he got into the habit of peeing on our bed. :/ Otherwise his litterbox habits are great though.

On Saturday we are going to the MSPCA to find a friend for Pipkin. I'm a bit nervous about how Pip will take another bunny, though. He has been an only rabbit since we've had him and I don't know much about his life before then.

We are taking him to the MSPCA with us, to see if he takes to anyone in particular. We're going to have them in separate cages and introduce them slowly over time, completely supervised of course. Does anyone have any other tips?

I'm sure it'll take a while, we're prepared for that, but Pipkin is only my second rabbit, and it will be the first time I've had more than one at a time.

EDIT I forgot to add that Pip is neutered, and any rabbit we adopt would, of course, already be altered since they're coming from a shelter. I'm very excited about adding a bun to the family. :)

How exciting!

I remember when we were adopting our dog, we thought she could come live with me at my parents house temporarily until our house was renovated. We had to bring my mom's dog in to meet Addy. But Arrow was so nervous being there and the smells that she barked and paced etc....Just keep that in mind when you are meeting and greeting that Pipkin may be a bit nervous himself!

Have you looked online for what kind of buns they currently have up for adoption?
