    I’ve had Marlow about 7 months now. He’s always let me pet him but if he thought he’s about to be picked up he ran off and gave me the cold shoulder. Boy, there’s nothing like the cold shoulder from a rabbit! It’s not that I need to pick him up. I only wanted him to be comfortable with it if I...

    I forgot to put water in his pen overnight...

    Before I could rescue Marlow, he was without water and food for maybe even several days in a row. At least two to three at a stretch for certain but the girl that used to take care of him was often gone longer. How he stayed alive I don’t know.

    Will fire works scare my bunny?

    I’d been wondering about fireworks affecting Marlow too, but he didn’t seem to care about all those bangs and booms.

    Give 'em some book suggestions!

    Thanks for reminding me about goodreads! I have the app but haven’t really used it! Will send you a friend request through there! I’ve been on a Terry Pratchet kick! Did I spell his name right? Love his hysterical metaphors.

    I can’t get regular Revolution or Advantage here without a prescription. They only sell Advantage II over the counter- will that work?

    Piano fun with the bun

    Since I’ve had to move the digital piano into my office, where Marlowe is, (my husband has to work from home so he’s in the room with the non electric piano), anyway- the bunny likes to run around my feet when I play. The faster I play, the faster he runs. It’s a bit distracting, albeit...

    Grape leaves

    Can rabbits eat grape leaves? I’ve got vines in the yard and they’re growing like crazy. I keep thinking about making dolmas but that seems like a lot of work. All that folding. And if Marlow can eat them, that’s much easier. I just hand it to him.

    When I tried the hat inside a toilet paper roll, Marlow always put the toilet paper roll in his water dish. Luckily he started to eat more hay, but only if it was in his litter box so I clean that and put fresh in a lot.

    Well- now I feel really old- you young whippersnappers. I mean, I have grandkids. At least my bunny is youngish.

    Four Vet Visits-Help!

    I have seen this with my cat. When I saw this I asked the vet and she said this can happen to animals- that it looks like they’re about to get better but then they don’t. I forget what she called it but she said it’s normal. I’m sorry for your loss.

    Two questions

    Yes, the space of his own. He only goes into the cage now because that’s where his litter is. He does his business and comes out. He likes to lay down on the outside of the cage by the wall. I’d moved it away from the wall to give him another tunnel type place. Or he goes into one of the...

    Two questions

    If I don’t need that cage it frees up some room. He does like laying down between it and the wall but I can set up some wire shelving for that. Any tips on how to get them used to each other? I’ve gotten cats and dogs able to get along, but this is my first bunny.

    Two questions

    If Marlow has his own room- he shares my office, and I don’t lock him in the cage at night - it’s a large dog kennel- do I need the cage at all? Also- has anyone had any success at getting cats to coexist with rabbits? If he’s in the carrier he doesn’t seem to care if one of the cats come up...

    Do pellets go bad?

    I’ve had Marlow about a month now, I think. He’d only been fed pellets, the Walmart brand, for all of his life till now. After a few weeks he’s started eating more Timothy hay- at first he barely touched it. And I give him assorted leafy greens and sometimes a small bite of banana at bed time...

    Adopting a neglected rabbit

    He is quite a character. I cut out a few boxes to allow tunnels around the room. He caught on quickly and spent a half hour going in and out and around. Earlier I had come in with a sprig of parsley as my greeting and he merely sniffed, wouldn’t take it and moved off, keeping his back turned all...

    Adopting a neglected rabbit

    One week later: Mallow is doing great! Had a vet appointment today- he’s healthy! And so much enjoying exploring his new territory and eating his hay and fresh veggies and an occasional small piece of banana. He’s just great to hang out with! He likes to be petted and loves his environment...

    Bunny Maze?

    I recently rescued a rabbit from someone who was neglecting it- I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl (the rabbit, I mean. I know the gender of The person) but I am going to have the rabbit checked out by a vet soon. I have a slightly larger area outside the cage for Mallow to explore, but it...

    Adopting a neglected rabbit

    Today I am wondering how to let Mallow know he can leave the cage. I have a smallish area of the office ready for him to explore (with me around) but when I leave the cage door open he comes out a step, and then immediately scuttles back into the furthest corner of the cage and keeps his back...
