I'd be ok with a big oops! XD I'm already getting 1 baby his name is gonna be Little Britches. He's the kitten in the pic below. But we have the unsexable in a separate cage inside the house and my three does are hanging around outside. And believe it or not I only have one unsocial Doe and that's ONLY because when I lived with my dad my two siblings were really mean to her and banged on her cage with sticks and the such. My other two does were handled straight from the get go. Once they were born I started handling them for at least 10-20 minutes daily and I just spent time with them and they are very friendly and sociable. My not so social doe is even slowly coming around but she only trusts me to mess with her (Like getting her out of the cage, petting, etc.) BTW I look awful in these pics (I was crying when I found him; I recently moved out of my moms and had to leave my cat that I've had for 14 years)

Is it 8 weeks yet?

When I got my kitten I thought I'd train her to like rabbits. I placed her in an adults cage and was surprised that the rabbits attacked her. When she grew up she would avoid rabbits but she would groom baby rabbits if I place them beside her.

Putting something strange in a rabbits territory may not the right way, if the goal is not making the cat scared of rabbits (my neighbours angoras are killing rats that come into their pen). When I had my Fury as house bunny she hopped up to neighbours cat and dog in the garden, neutral, common space. But I would start with holding and petting or feeding both, somewhat seperated, to get them used to each other.

But here sure are some who have done that and have first hand experience, I wonder if there isn't already a thread, if not it's worth one.

I'm probably sidetracking this thread but...

Are they pen aggressive with people?

No, they are the sweetest, most cuddly rabbits I've ever met. Get along fine with dog and guinea pigs too.
Last year two does got into a fight, after years of living together peacefully, which ended bad for one doe. It seems that when something pushes them over the edge Hulk comes out.

That is pretty awesome. Well, not that the one doe got hurt but the rat killing part and that they are still sweet rabbits...that is awesome.

Speaking of meeting from a distance would it maybe help if I put the three does in one cage and then the other unsexed in another cage and let them see each other from a little distance and sniff each other and stuff. Or should I put them in a neutral bigger are like a ground pen?
