Rabbit recently came to me and tapped her foot lightly on the ground then went away. Any help?

Hello!  Hind foot?   Obvious strong, deliberate gesture?  This can be a sign of danger and concern - the sort of thumping that rabbits do to alert their group to the presence of a threat. But you say 'lightly,' which is confusing.  Perhaps it would be useful to film the behaviour and show it to us or your vet.

I have just found an excellent article, called 'Why is my rabbit thumping?' in the blog.  This might be very helpful.   Best of luck!
