Eeks - I came home to find Winslet had somehow gotten inside Izzy's* pen.  I have the pen set up in a small foyer behind my front door, and she somehow shoved her way along between the pen and the wall to find the section at the back where it overlapped.  I had been gone for just under 4 hours, so I don't know when it happened.  There were tufts of fur all over the place, but no obvious signs of injury to either one.

The first thing I did was to get her out of there, and I have put screw-eyes into the molding (2 on each side) and ziptying the corners of the pen to it.  Pretty sure THAT won't happen again!

Then I cleared up the fluff and poop - Izzy was visibly tufty-looking, but most of the fluff scattered around seemed to be grey Winslet-fur.  I checked them both over and didn't find any wounds or bald spots on either one.  Both have had pellets, thorough sessions of soothing pettins, and a few bits of craisin.

I am planning on sleeping on the couch in that room tonight, in case she figures out some other way in.  I was already going to wait a day or so before any actual bonding sessions (in the bathtub at first) but now what.  Should I push that up so they don't have time to develop a good sulk, or wait a few days more so that everyone calms down?

He's still a bit thumpy, but she's relaxed and chilling porkchop fashion in the living room - about half a room length from where he is but where she can still see him.

Any advice for a freaked-out bunny momma?

*Irving was found on Irving Park Road, but I'm not enamored of the name.  Winslet kept her shelter name but becane Her Grace Duchess Winslet vonThumpington.  I'm favoring Isidore Irving Fitzroy for him - Isidore was Irving Berlin's middle name, and since he's a mini-Rex but not show quality, Fitzroy is the traditional name given to the bastard son of the king.  Since he's still young, he'll be Master Isidore (Izzy) until he grows into an "adult" title
