    Irrational (or rational...) fears

    Does anyone have any weird irrational (or possibly rational) fears when it comes to their rabbits? I'm always terrified that Apollo will jump out of my window... He always looks up at it longingly, and would even hop up there if there was something that could give him a boost. I had to...

    When is a rabbit a senior?

    Apollo will be turning four this year - kind of. We don't really know his age, but he was approx 2 when we got him, and he'll be with us for two years in a few months. Anyway, I, of course, am still looking for a bun friend for him, for some reason it has been a way harder decision than before...

    Critical care supplement?

    I've seen online that crushed pellets would work as a "homemade critical care". Critical care is pretty expensive (the cheapest I've seen is £19.80 not including postage), now, of course, I could just buy it but if I can use this it would save me a bit of cash, which my poor fourteen-year-old...

    Question about poop

    Apollo’s poops are always dark. They’re large is size, and soft, pretty crum. But very dark, still. I’ve made some changes to his diet but it’s been at least two months now. He has unlimited orchard grass hay, no veggies and 1-2tbsp of both science selective adult pellets and marriages cold...

    minor head tilt is back

    hey everyone in an inconvenient fashion, it seems two of three of my pets have decided now is the time to feel unwell. Apollo had signs of a head tilt for the first time after Athena passed away in January. After almost five? six? months, it has decided to make a reappearance. My phone is...

    how to bunny proof skirtings/baseboards?

    hey everyone, i recently had a home check to adopt a bunny, and didn't meet the criteria. Now i understand most of it, but one point was that the room isn't bunny proofed and what happens if the bunnies start to chew on the skirtings? I've never heard of that before. What happens if a bunny...

    Meet Lily (aka Willow)

    Lily is potentially our next (and hopefully final) bunfriend. She’s a 7 month old nethie dwarf mix, she’s a little younger than I would’ve wanted (Apollo is about 4 now 😮). She hasn’t had any health conditions but she has had a litter of kits before she was spayed last week. Hopefully she’ll...

    Another rabbit?

    To be honest, I’m pretty scared to get another bunny. But Apollo deserves it so much, and he benefitted a lot from Athena. If you’re unaware as to who Athena is, I adopted a (supposed) English spot x lop bunny who was about two years old. She had an abscess before I adopted her and was told it...

    Bunny on the bed?

    Is it safe to allow Apollo to jump on my bed? I’m redoing my room and doing from a loft bed to a normal mid-low bed. Currently my mattress is on the floor while I sell my old bed and Apollo is having a lot of fun jumping up and laying down with me. I tried looking through the other posts and...

    Let’s play the “Name Game”

    Unlike my last game which I stole off the guinea pigs forum, I think (maybe) I made this one myself! The rules are simple, your bunnies name must start with the letter after the previous poster! I’m not sure if I’m explaining this properly but here is what I mean: “My bunnies name is Ace...

    What gender?? 💛

    One of my aunts bunnies (from a thread a few weeks ago!) have been identified by a vet as a male. They originally thought both were female. The vet couldn’t tell what gender the other was so I decided to check myself ahah but I have no idea! I think it might be a female??

    Meet Bailey!

    I am picking up my German shepherd puppy in two weeks! He was the only sable male in his litter, and all other 4 were female, aside from one male who was Black and Tan. We had planned on buying from a more local breeder, but after seeing this breeder (who is way better, though way more expensive...

    Marriages pellets: are they any good?

    There is a new brand of pellets that I’ve seen going around called “Marriages Hypoallergenic Nutri Pressed Pellets”. At first, I just thought it seemed over the top and more like an ad because the person who advertised it gains profit off their sales. However now, it has gotten quite big and...

    Can an 8 week old and a 9 week old bond?

    My aunt and uncle are getting a second bunny, who has just turned 8 week old, to bond with their 9 week old bun that they got last week! They’ve got more rabbits than me 🤣 I know the process with adult rabbits is that they’re not allowed to be put together and they have a whole bonding process...

    What age should a puppy be introduced to a rabbit?

    My family are getting a German shepherd in a few months (I’ve mentioned before in a previous thread). We have ended up going with a breeder, because the rescues at my local shelter weren’t compatible with rabbits, and keeping Apollo safe is the #1 priority. Apollo lives in my room on the second...

    Weird eating pattern

    Since maybe the first week of January, Apollo has only been eating after 6pm. He’ll eat his breakfast at 9am, and then anything given to him during the time between 9am-6pm, will only get a nibble or a sniff. And then after 6, he’ll eat like normal until maybe 1am. And will repeat it over again...

    Moulting & microchip help?

    I’m putting these both in the same thread but I’m not sure if it’s a good idea. 1. Apollo is going through a. Heavy moult at the moment - as I think many buns are, but he’s had a reduced appetite because of it. I’ve been brushing him out twice a day but I’m still a little worried that he’s...

    Best rugs?

    I’m currently using four layers of blankets, towels and fleece in my room to help with Apollo’s sore hocks but I’m looking for a rug - as honestly, the blankets are a bit of an eye sore (and they trap a ton of hay). I’m looking at this rug (see picture), but not sure it’s okay for a rabbit...

    How long will it take a rabbit to grieve their bond mate? Also, head tilt?

    Apollo has been acting a lot sadder, which of course, I had expected but not really prepared for. For the first few hours, he was really good, binkying, running around, eating a ton of hay. But as we settled more into the evening, he began to get more reserved, didn't eat as much, and stayed in...

    Sudden death

    i feel sick to my stomach to have to post this. My rabbit Athena, who I got last September, passed away sometime in the last 4 and a half hours. And I have no idea why she died. We are taking her to the vet in the morning. But I just don’t know what to do. I made sure she was eating last night...
