Question Hello ,
I have got a new baby bunny around one month back,from the day 1 he started to lick us but when my friend came to home & she patted her,bunny started to lick her also.Although he remains with me in most of the part of day,he licks my brother more?
Answer Dear Prateeksha,
Bunnies lick to show affection, and there's no telling whom a bunny will choose to bestow his/her love. Since your bunny is so loving to everyone, it's a GOOD thing. You need not be jealous. She has enough love to go around.
