We tried keeping Blackie quiet after his neutering surgery, just in case, though we had no idea just how long or short the time should be. Blackie got very frustrated, there was plenty of thumping and pawing. Finally, he took matters into his own feet - when I was feeding him, the rabbit slipped out of the cage like lighting. There was a losing game of 'Catch me if you can'.
Well, it is good to know that he feels fine. Life is back to normal.
