    Bunny bonding training for lap sitting and being held

    I had a rabbit I used to let out during the day and then put her in her cage at night. At first she refused to go "home". So, I trained her to go home on command. It didn't take very long. All I would have to do is say "home" and shake the bag of treats and she would run as fast as she could...

    LYING ON BACK

    My rex Alice lays on her back too. In the summer (and in the winter when we have a fire in our fireplace) I give her cool packs (the hard kind you put in your cooler) and she will lay on her back with her head on the cool pack. It is so cute, her little belly is all exposed. I swear I can see...

    Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus type 2 In Arizona, Texas, and California

    When they are suddenly gone with no warning it so hard, a large void is left. It's like someone ripped the heart from your body. We are all with you, and feel your pain. He sure was a cutie. He looks a lot like my Sophie. My sweet, sweet girl.

    Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus type 2 In Arizona, Texas, and California

    I'm so sorry to hear about your D'jango. It is so awful losing them. I lost my girl Sophie in June and I still miss her everyday. I am just so grateful for the time I had with her. The end is so heartbreaking as there is nothing we can do but let them go.

    Mites?

    her's was just a perfect bare circle and the skin was dry and flaky; so, that is what concerned me. I would say a trip to the vet might be your best bet.

    Mites?

    i think every bun is different. Last year my youngest bun (she was a little over a year old then) developed two perfect circles on her face. The fur was shed in a circle shape, one around her right eye and the other in the middle of her forehead. I thought for sure it was ringworm; so, I took...

    Litter training

    She is also 5 months old. She is going through her change and growing up. Usually during this stage is when they will start doing this. Even if she was liter trained about this time in their lives every rule is thrown out the window. It is a stage and it is either time to get her spayed or...

    Litter training

    When they are just starting to train I start by putting a box in each corner of their area. Then I watch them and see which one they are using the most. In some cases they don't use any of the ones I have given them and they pick their own spot. (They usually pick their own spot and once they...

    Bunny scared of brush

    i have a rabbit that won't let the brush near her. She hates it and growls at me when I try to brush her. However, she loves the glove or the mitten. I bought both as she needs to be brushed so badly when she molts (she is a Rex). I would try the glove. I found if I do the glove when she is...

    bonded pairs?

    thank you for information. Blue eyes, you listed all my fears and you are a good voice of reason!! I think I will stop wondering and leave well enough alone. They are all happy as is and I don't want to mess with that. Was just secretly hoping I guess. thanks for the help everyone.

    Hidey hut found at Target

    I didn't mention the "sherpa" fabric. I used sherpa fabric for a while and never had a problem with it. It is better for them to chew fabric then carpet though. They loved the fabric as it is soft and they can dig and fluff around in it. It is also easy to wash. I ended up taking it out as...

    Hidey hut found at Target

    I would say it totally depends on the rabbit. One of my rabbits would totally tear it apart in a day. However, my other rabbits would chin the entire thing to mark it as theirs and then just curl up and sleep inside it. You could try wrapping the bottom with a towel or fleece material if you...

    bonded pairs?

    I have two bonded pairs that I have always kept in separate areas (each pair has it's own living space). I was wondering if I can put them together? Does anyone have two bonded pairs living together in one large area? Has anyone ever tried this? I certainly don't want to break the bond...

    rabbit pregnant??

    thank you so much Preitler. I feel much better. I was worried about breaking their bond if I had to separate. My spayed doe doesn't both her nests with the false pregnancies, so hopefully that doesn't change. I am feeling much better about this whole thing since reading these posts. Thanks...

    rabbit pregnant??

    thanks everyone for the advice. I will just have to wait and see what happens. I am just really hoping it is a false pregnancy; but, I fear it is not. I'll have to see how both react to the whole situation when they are born. I just keep watching her like a hawk in the meantime. I want to...
