    Mounting a stuffie

    I gave Cali a stuffed rabbit to play with, it's supposed to be a surrogate rabbit that looks real and I got off years ago for another bunny that never took to it. Well to my amused shock Cali was quite aggressively mounting it and grooming it, sometimes giving it nips all over...

    Rabbit fight - please advise

    Hi everyone, We've had chip for over a month now, hoping to bond him with our spayed female. He was neutered in January. They have lived side by side and We have done about a half dozen bunny dates in neutral territory. Cali, the female, has growled and tried to bite him several times now...

    How to safely remove sticky residue from fur?

    Hi everyone, I'm just wondering the best way to remove an unknown sticky residue that has formed a clump with fur on my rescue bunny's face. He had this when we adopted him a week ago and it hasn't improved. I have no idea what it is, just that it's sticky and maybe a big greasy. No colour to...

    Question about wood stove pellets

    I have decided not to use shavings anymore, I can't live with the mess they create. I have looked in vain for these horse stall pellets but no one carries them here. Finally I bought a pelleted litter at pet smart that is made from recycled paper. It works fine but it's so expensive! I know some...

    Cage niceties

    I'm always looking for ways to spoil my rabbits and make their home as comfy as possible. Unfortunately they're always looking for ways to thwart my efforts and destroy the nice things I give them. Cali has a nice new enclosure with a hidey hole in a lower cabinet. I had put a small memory foam...

    Raise your hand if you have a rabbit that's a jerk

    Anyone else? The rabbit we adopted before Christmas, whom we have named Clark, is to be honest a bit of an A-hole. He's just over a year old, has been neutered since late spring or summer. He lunges at my hand when I try to give him a treat. He ducks his head and runs when I try to pet him most...

    Two marble sized lumps on neck

    Hi everyone. So we adopted a 9 month old spayed doe from the humane society yesterday. Today I was petting her and noted two firm marble sized lumps on her neck. THey don't seem to cause her discomfort at all. I am dreading they are abscesses. I will be phoning the shelter to let them know. But...

    Bonding two spayed females

    I hope there are success stories out there when it comes to bonding two spayed does. Because only the bunny chick seems to advocate for it when I look around online. Today we went to the humane society with Cali, our spayed 4 year old doe. She lost her partner Steve two weeks ago but has been...

    Goodbye Steve

    Steve passed away suddenly today. He had an issue with his teeth where he would choke and spit up phlegm sometimes. About 8 months ago he had his teeth worked on which helped solve the issue but today he had a choking episode which took him from me. I couldn't help him and I will have to live...
