    How to Register my bunny as an ESA?

    I take the best care of my bunny. She is pretty desensitized to everything, but it wouldn't be because I would like to take her into general stores with me. I need my emotional support most in my own home, and it's really difficult to find places in California that don't view rabbits as pests or...

    How to Register my bunny as an ESA?

    Hey everyone! I've actually been considering this for a while, but in the face of my upcoming life changes, it's a good idea to act on it. Quinley has always been a source of calm for me, and she behaves well, is always very gentle, if not a bit demanding with me for attention. Since I'm going...

    I feel like I'm abandoning my bunny--but it might be best

    Hey, everyone. So my husband and I have been talking about moving into our own place for a while. It's been rough but we found a few apartment complexes willing to house rabbits and we're slowly saving up to get to a point where we can sign the lease on one of these places. My bunnies do not...

    My rabbit's poop is soft but I can't feel any gas in his stomach.I only gave him carrots and cabbage. What does this means?

    I am so sorry for your loss. Now you will know in the future though and you will be able to care better for a pet, and that learning experience is enough to say that he will rest in peace.

    Messy litter box

    Yeah, some bunnies are just eaters! I'm glad that you're keeping their welfare in mind and removing plastic from their environment since that seems to be what's best for them. Mine like book binding glue! We had to pack and store my dad's really old Chevrolet manuals from the 1980s because the...

    Messy litter box

    That's totally fair and a good idea. I have chewers too, but so far we're a week strong and the most they do is dig at the box holes to try and get to the good stuff. Quinn tried a bite a couple times but the plastic is hard and fairly unappealing to her, since what she really wants is the food...

    Messy litter box

    In the video they do actually tell you to sand it down, but I found I didn't need to do much? As long as you cut properly with the right tools it doesn't leave edges. Anyway as long as the OP follows the tutorial it should be fine

    Messy litter box

    Hey there! I had this same problem until just recently. I was having a hard time litter training my rabbits because of it; they would just sit on the fresh hay and scoot their butts over the lip of the litter box to pee on the side. It got really messy and hard to maintain quickly, and I have...

    Rabbit tractors risky?!?!

    Save for the tractor, I would be more worried about any pesticides your complex uses on the grass! Definitely ask about it before you put her outside to nibble, since that would be a more immediate danger! As for the tractor, with RHDV-2 going around, I wouldn't risk it. There's no way to know...

    Caring for my bunny when I'm gone

    To add to this, the ideal rack is one in which they can easily fit their nose and mouth through, but not their whole head, and big enough to hold more than a serving or two of hay (enough to graze freely throughout the day and not run out).

    Caring for my bunny when I'm gone

    I freakin' feel you on the hay allergy. I have to wear a face mask when I'm feeding my bunnies. A bottle of over the counter 24 hour allergy pills should help, but it's never going to really go away while she's in your room, because bunnies dig hay, kick it about, and shed everywhere. My...

    How should I punish biting?

    I'm not sure that at this point you would need to go so far. While it is a good method for extreme cases of aggression, you also said that she is not continuously aggressive with you. It's mainly food territorial and occasionally space territorial, but not randomized or constant. She's not...

    How should I punish biting?

    Mistreatment and starvation can often go hand in hand. If she was mistreated at the shelter, it's possible they took her food away to punish her or didn't feed her regularly. That could be source of trauma and a cause of the biting. If it is, it will take a while for her to get used to you and...
