    Trust Woes

    I am once again lamenting over my rabbits not loving me. Pup has been coming down with snuffles which has been a Problem because i havent found a vet here in the city yet and have no way to transport him anyway (no car, no carrier anymore because he keeps eating them.) But in recent weeks he’d...

    Coat Condition Question

    My princess angel baby love, Thumpette is the most beautiful bunny in the world and I worship the air she breathes but I just recently noticed that her fur is not as heavenly soft as it used to be! Granted she’s older, she could be as old as seven this year and I know bunnies’ coats get duller...

    Baby Bunny Fever

    Do any of you ever just feel the unhinged NEED to bring home a baby rabbit? I’ve only ever had ONE baby bunny out of the 9 rabbits I’ve owned and it was simply magical. Of course I can’t justify getting a baby bunny right now; between the fact that I have two seniors (6 and 8) and the pet...

    Litterbox issues, enclosure solution?

    i’m thinking of restricting my bunnies’ run area again to see if it helps their litter box habits. Lately every time I clean their area, they make it messier! I sweep up their poop and put it back in the litter box but then they just poop MORE outside their box. It’s getting ridiculous...

    Trust: Square One

    I feel like our big move broke my bunnies’ trust in us. Just before we moved, Thumpette especially was being so sweet and loving, greeting me at the door, binkying at the sound of my voice, nudging my hand for affection. All that trust seems to’ve gone now. Will that bond come back in time do...

    Rabbits Traumatized From Moving?

    Yesterday we moved Pup and Thumpette from our quiet rural house into our tiny new apartment in bustling NYC. I don't think they're taking the move well. I transported them in the smaller of two cages I owned, stuffed with hay so they wouldn't slide and shift around in the back seat and would...

    Sleepiest Bunny Ever

    Little over a week ago, I came home to Thumpet being just deliriously sleepy. Sweet little thing just couldn’t keep her eyes open, like she was simply exhausted from hiking or something lmao She snapped out of it around 5-6pm after a good nap, but i just thought it was the funniest thing...

    Some broken nails and a broken heart

    One of my fosters has been really anxious lately. I figured from smelling the new bunny across the hall from his room or because the hay i was given was very poor quality. He’s been kinda hot and cold; lunging at hands giving him food, panic fleeing from anyone entering his pen to clean or...

    Star Crossed Lovers

    Seems old Pup has had no luck in love. His family abandoned him, his two bonding mates have been more like lukewarm roommates, and the last girl he saw had a grudge against any long eared creature that moved. Now 8 years old with a lot of love to give and nobody to give it to except a sad old...

    The Queen Laid To Rest

    I should’ve made this announcement a while ago. Idk maybe it was just too painful to talk about. I’ve probably mentioned it, but my sweet baby girl Mrs Brown has passed on. she suffered a rare condition where she would just randomly choke for a couple minutes and shake herself out of it usually...

    Obligatory: What color is this angel?

    Im making that post. I’m usually pretty good at identifying rabbit colors but this doe has me stumped. She’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen and I can’t figure out what color she’s considered. My theory is opal or lilac and some sort of sable???? Not sure. She’s a mix of like 4 different...

    New Bun, New Housing Challenge!

    My friend who gave my Muffin offered to give me another of her rabbits since her family is moving and they won’t be able to bring the rabbits. I’m also moving after my foster bunnies go home. My plan is to bring the new rabbit home after I move so there’s as little relocating for her as...

    Fostering Adventures!

    It’s my first time officially fostering anything! I was assigned a notorious un-adoptable mini rex who has been returned twice for aggression and misbehavior. He’s been so hard to keep in a home, the rescue has given up on finding him one. They only fostered him out because they have to empty...

    From Hutch Life to House Life?

    I’m preparing to adopt another outdoor bunny from a friend as her showing career comes to an end this fall. She’s the most adorable rabbit I have EVER seen and I’m so grateful that my friend is willing to give her to me! You’d think I wouldn’t feel so nervous about adopting another adult/senior...

    Depression, Arthritis, or Laziness?

    My senior rabbit (i believe he's 8 this year?) has been.. different since we moved in October. When I first got him, he took a while to figure out how to climb out of his litter box, and most of the time he would nap in his little hidey house. He wasn't the most active bunny, but he wasn't...

    Lionhead Haircuts

    I can’t be the only one who trims their lionheads’ fur! I can’t find any pictures though of anyone else attempting the “teddybear” cut so i thought I’d share. Attempt is the word im using because it’s clearly not perfect. Has anyone else tried to style their lionheads or angoras?

    Hay management with carpets

    Since I moved in with my boyfriend (late October) i’ve had my rabbits eating hay cubes because i can’t figure out how to manage feeding them hay without it getting ground into the carpets. I have an x-pen run on top of some foam mats covered with fleece (Pup will chew the mats to shreds if he...

    Time to start exercising?

    My oldest, Jackson, has been in a recovery cage since suffering a leg injury last month. He couldn’t balance on it very well and I was afraid of him tipping forward into his water bowl and drowning while i was out of the room. I’ve seen him accidentally get stuck in a water bowl before and I...

    Lionhead Shedding Manes?

    I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS about lionhead hair in particular! 1. Is it normal for them to shed out their skirt while molting? 2. Do older rabbits start to grow more fur on their faces? Does their mane consume their face gradually?? 3. Do some double manes simply not grow a long skirt? (This boy...
