    Male Bonding

    To make a long story short, a person I've known for a couple of years asked me to take care of her rabbit, Benny, because she can't take him with her when she goes home. Things haven't been going well, though. My rabbit, Astro, is not used to being caged, and I've been keeping Benny in an...

    Eating, But Not Pooping After Neuter

    Astro was neutered today, and he seems to be fine. He was fairly active when I brought him home, and he's been sleeping since. He eats whatever I put in front of him, and he's been drinking, too, but he STILL hasn't pooped. Twice now, I've seen him hop into the litterbox, and it looks like he's...

    Toilet bedding?

    So, I've been using paper bedding for Astro's toilet, and it only costs about $6 for two or so weeks worth, if used as sparingly as possible. The problem, though, is that he likes to dig in it, and if I don't put in enough bedding, he ends up urinating on on the bottom of the toilet, and it's...

    My Bed: Astro's Bathroom

    Astro has decided that my bed is the perfect bathroom, and is determined to convince me that what I'm sleeping on is not a bed, but his toilet. He especially likes my blankets, and I can't leave them anywhere, or he'll mark them, even when I'm under them! He hasn't been neutered, yet, and while...

    First-claw-trimming advice?

    I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on how to trim a fidgety rabbit's claws? There aren't any rabbit-experienced veterinarians in my area, and even though I have a pair of small animal clippers, I'm not sure if I could safely trim Astro's claws on my own. He's not used to me...

    Pinneapple: Yay or Nay?

    Three times now Astro has had difficulties with what I've been assuming is a blockage of some sort, and each time I've given him a little bit of pineapple juice. Within a few minutes, his pooping returned to normal, and he started eating his hay again. I'm currently trying to switch him to a...

    Bonding-with-your-bunny stories?

    I was hoping that some of you could share your experiences of bonding with your bunnies? Astro's been steadily gaining confidence in the last three weeks, but he can still be so timid around me, and he's so easily startled. What kinds of things have you mommies and daddies done to make your...

    Astro's Adventures: Down the Rabbit Hole

    So, I've read that rabbits can fit themselves into small spaces and everything, but I didn't think that I'd have to worry about it, as I didn't think that there was any space big enough in the apartment that Astro could wiggle himself into. I was wrong! I was in the bedroom changing into my...

    Feeding Schedule?

    I'm sorry I've been asking so many questions! It means so much to me, though, how helpful you all are! I'm curious if I should be feeding Astro on a schedule? So far, I've been feeding him his pellets and his veggies at random times throughout out the day. A friend of mine feeds her rabbit his...

    Breed?

    Could anyone identify Astro's breed? I tried the identification key at the top of this forum, but I'm still not sure which he breed he might be. He seems small for five months old, but he seems to be at a healthy weight, too, as he doesn't feel bony or anything. His fur is soft, and he's black...

    Orange urine?

    I'm not 100% sure why it hasn't concerned me until now, but Astro's urine seems to be a dark orange color, and I'm not sure at all if that's normal. I started noticing the color when I made him a bedroom in my closet -- it's a wide, open closet with no door -- and he started peeing everywhere in...

    Anxious, New Rabbit Mommy

    Astro has been living with me for nearly two weeks now, and even though he hasn't warmed up to me a 100%, he seems pleased with the living arrangements. I hadn't had the heart to restrict him to a cage, so I made him a "bedroom" out of my closet, and he only stays in there while I'm at work and...
