    Ways to get involved with rabbits?

    You could also volunteer to socialize or help out at a rabbit rescue. Smaller groups often need help getting rabbits to veterinary appointments or even just having people to determine how socialized a rabbit is for potential adopters. I'm sure lots of folks would love to show a rabbit enthusiast...

    When is a rabbit a senior?

    Happy fourth birthday Appollo! While I think some large breeds can be considered seniors as young as four (and not even getting started on the senior designation in show rabbits which is even younger) I would consider senior to be when you start to notice signs of your rabbit appearing more...

    Fun/Interesting Photos!

    I raise you Neal, acting as an example for the correct way to wear eclipse protection glasses (while he looked cute, our boy unfortunately, had to miss the eclipse as I decided he would be safer in a place where there would be no risk of damage to his eyes)

    What's Iris' colour?

    Broken fawn maybe, I think orange is a self-color while fawn tends to be blended

    Harness

    The most fun and safest option for both of you will likely be some kind of exercise pen instead of a harness and leash. Things can go wrong incredibly quickly with a harness and you will have to be on alert to changes in the environment all the time. In a run/play pen you can lie down in the...

    Get to know each other game!

    That's a pretty good idea! I use a cleaned-out terra-cotta flower pot as an extra hay bin for the bunnies to steal from! It's functional, cute, and best of all, free! TPBM is interested in adding more varieties of foraged plants to their rabbit's diet

    Hi some advice on things I might need additional to things I’ve already written down :)

    Rabbit emergencies are expensive man, it always pays to be prepared. Insurence or a scratch pay account cuts the cost and risk down, but an emergency anywhere can wipe you out fast. A broken leg, severe infection, GI stasis... the minimum I always expect for a minor emergency is $300 (in all...

    Separating buns for medical reasons?

    I would say to follow the vet's advice... health trumps ideal social situation in my books. Especially if there is any risk this is contagious. You can, however, find a way to separate where they aren't totally separate, so to speak. Perhaps using side by side x-pens so they can see and slightly...

    Get to know each other game!

    How could I ever choose!? I think the series I frequently loop back to is probably the Sight by David Clement-Davies or Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, or best of all the Monstromologist by Rick Yancy! TPBM what is your favorite book series (great question, ought to be asked again!)

    Hi! Future bunny mom-have some questions!

    In the US the only vaccine that I currently know of that is even slightly approved is the RHDV2 vaccine, which is only available in some regions right now, although will likely become more widespread soon. Globally there are vaccines for RHDV 1 & 2, as well as myxomatosis, however, none of...

    Hi! Future bunny mom-have some questions!

    I would HIGHLY recommend spaying and neutering, it tends to greatly improve rabbits' general behavior, prevents conditions that could crop up later in life, and is necessary if you were ever to consider getting a second rabbit as a bond. I tend to feel that the earlier you can get it done, the...

    ♡Books about rabbits. Fact or fiction♡

    Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep... kids' book about a brother and sister bunny named Willa and Willoughby... It is ridiculously cute! More abstractly, Of Mice and Men, which I quote to my rabbits at least once a week

    ♡Books about rabbits. Fact or fiction♡

    The "for Dummies" series in general are awesome, although the name can seem a little off-putting. They can teach you pretty much anything in a way that the total layman can understand. I like to behave as if I'm a "dummie" whenever I start something new because once you have an ego about what...

    Hi! Future bunny mom-have some questions!

    There are actually some pretty decent methods to rabbit-proof carpet if the carpet is the only deterrent to free roam. The method I used was getting a large (9'x9') flat woven area rug to cover 90% of the carpet and then placing "wood" linoleum tiles on the edge to prevent any access to the...

    Tripod Bunny - Injured Rabbit

    I have known a lot of animals whose quality of life greatly increased following an amputation, as the pain associated with a limb that needs to go is often very hard on them. Most quadrupeds adjust to being tripods very well. I'm so glad the little guy had a successful surgery! Also, on the...

    ♡Whats your favorite thing you have for your bunnies?♡

    While I have lots of favorite toys and things for the kids (the best is the outdoor play area and the stuffed toys I got each the day I brought them home), my favorite thing from my rabbits is a little carved wooden pine tree that my mom asked a friend of hers to make out of our beloved rabbit...

    Gallimimus (unless I'm wrong) is a species of bipedal dinosaur. My hometown has one of the largest collections of dinosaur remains in the US, I'm always down to talk dinosaurs! TPBM has been to Yellowstone National Park
