    Leg Abscess - the healing process

    Quinn has never liked me. He's tolerated me, but that was at best when we were at a distance. I was generally okay with this. I could still clip his nails and make sure he got everything he needed, I just didn't pick him up very often. I now regret that. I was cleaning their cage when I...

    No longer using the litter box

    The story goes something like this; my rabbits were really well litter trained. They occasionally would pee on the blanket, but it would be a one time thing every so often. Primarily they used their box and I had very little to clean up. Their litter box was decent and it lasted about 2-3 years...

    Hay bales damp inside?

    I recently bought a couple of hay bales after searching for a local place to buy them all summer. I opened the first one up and the grass is still really damp on the inside. Is there anyway to dry it a bit more? Is it safe to feed to my rabbits? It doesn't smell all that rancid and I haven't...

    Ear mites?

    I noticed Briar really going at her ear earlier, so I gathered her up and looked in her ear and saw a fairly small roundish red rash-like mark half-way up her ear. She hasn't been shaking her head or even scratching at her ear an unusually high amount of time. When she does scratch it though...

    Not eating fresh food

    Over the last few months I've gone from just simply washing their vegetable bowl between feedings to dumping out 70-90% of the vegetables that have been offered. It's all typically the same stuff they've always gotten, about a cup of organic baby field greens, with random topping vegetables...

    Bathtub traction stickers?

    So I assume with the heat that's been here lately, my buns have been a bit more agitated than usual so they've absolutely destroyed the last bit of carpet they had and I've had to replace it all with coroplast. For most of the cage it's fine, the areas are large enough that I can secure down...

    RIP Griffith

    I feel so dumb for even having to post this. It's completely my fault, which is probably why it bothers me so much. I've been dealing with a mess in my room the last little while and had moved all of the animals out while I was still ripping up carpet and moving things around. So some animals...

    Chewing

    Is there anyway to discourage chewing on fabric? It's been getting worse as the months go by ever since I bonded them. Quinn is usually pretty good about it unless he sees Briar doing it, but I can't give them beds or blankets or anything they can shred. It's gotten to the point that I can't...

    Pet Store angry rant

    The basic story is this: I've been looking for 3-4 newts (more specifically, fire bellied newts) for my 40 gallon tank the last month or so. So not only have I been to pretty much every single pet store within an hour's drive, I've also been horrified beyond words at what I've seen at all of...

    How to convince someone about cat food?

    Okay, my sister works in a vet clinic, my mother takes the vets word as the law. My sister has no real training for animal care, in fact, for a living she works mostly in human healthcare (she takes blood mostly) but does mostly small jobs like helping hold animals and taking blood and such...

    Hay eating habits

    So I have a system of where to put their hay that seems to work out fairly well, for about a day. I made a hay rack out of a few spare NIC cubes by their litter box and have one that hangs outside the cage up on their second level. They eat out of both of them, but they will dig and rip out all...

    District 9

    Has anyone else seen this recently? So good. I don't think I've seen a better movie all year. A tiny bit of a spoiler warning, nothing massive: I was reading some user reviews that gave it low scores today and their reasoning is just ridiculous. Too much blood and gore? It's rated 18A! You...

    Vegetables and rabbits

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I was reading an old article from one of the local papers about Easter rabbits and it was trying to give people honest information about rabbits and how they shouldn't be given as pets for the holiday. I came near the bottom where it made...

    Briar and her hatred of me

    Okay, so maybe hatred is a little strong. But it's been bothering me for a few months and I had hoped it would get better but it never really has so here's my question. When I first got Briar she loved me. I would pet her and she would sit beside me forever and ever to get more pets. She never...

    Anyone play World of Warcraft?

    I was just talking to one of my old guildies tonight and it got me thinking about WoW again. I pretty much had to stop playing recently with the loss of decent high speed internet (have satellite internet right now) and I still play a bit here or there for leveling characters. Right now I have...

    Trying new pet stores

    Usually I'm very wary of going into those random little pet stores you see in strip malls along the side of the road. I figure it's going to be horrible or there's going to be only dog/cat food and maybe some generic small animal pet food. I saw one while I was driving in the city a few months...

    Briar won't eat

    So last night was fine, she was eating like a pig and running around being bad as is the norm for her. This morning my mom came in and was giving them some dried apple as she normally does, one each (they're about the same density of a raisin) and Quinn ran up and took his all easily...

    Pooing/peeing outside of the cage

    Alright, ever since I moved their cage and cleaned everything up my adorable bunny Briar has been peeing/pooing in one specific corner. Quinn was as well, so I got fed up of chasing them out of the corner and I cleaned the carpet with some vinegar (with a carpet cleaner, it was great fun to see...

    Oxbow treats?

    I've been seeing the Oxbow treats around and I'm usually rather paranoid about what I give my rabbits, and have stuck to giving just plain dried fruit or fresh fruit to them for treats. I know that the Oxbow food/hay is pretty decent, and that many people have suggested their products to me...

    Three rabbits?

    So, I pretty much hate myself for thinking about it, but here goes anyway. How hard is it to bond three rabbits together? Is it better to just leave it in even numbers? Is there a serious risk of ruining the current bond and making it so that all three rabbits hate each other? I looked around...
