    Will he ever like me?

    Sorry if this is a bit long and ranting. Slight back story. About 2 years ago, I think, I got a second rabbit, Ggio. He was a 5yr old intact male, and I got him from a rescue that said they would neuter him for me, only they never did. I was in no financial situation to neuter him myself, so...

    Cleaning bad eye gunk.

    Hey everyone! I thought I'd give you an update. It took three sessions with warm water and a rag, over two days, but his eye is cleared up. It wasn't his eye itself, like the eyeball, just gunk in the fur around the eye. And no infection or anything, my vet has told me what to look for for that...

    Cleaning bad eye gunk.

    Hi everyone. I'm feeling like a horrid owner right now, so Please don't make me feel worse. Xenos is a 6.5 year old intact male Hotot Lionhead mix. He has head tilt, has for years. Last week, I was overwhelmed, dealing with an ill fiance and an ill dog, and fighting off the flue myself. Ever...

    Rabbit Peeing in his food bowl??

    I've tried the am pm feeding thing before, for another reason (Basically I was trying to put him on the same schedule as my other rabbit) and after a while, he started to loose weight. He's always been a grazer, and he was just miserable when he didn't always have food. He always has hay, but...

    Rabbit Peeing in his food bowl??

    For some strange reason, my rabbit has started peeing in his food bowl. He's an intact hotot mix, about 5 years old. Nothing has changed... Same cage, same litter in his litter box, same food, same amount of out of the cage playtime, everything is the same. But he's decided that his food bowl...

    Discipline has become a game.

    Lol, I had the same issue with Xenos. At first he would run off and clean himself, then he started just ignoring me or looking at me defiantly... Luckily he's a pretty good rabbit, so it hasn't been a real problem...

    How long do I need to watch him after neuter?

    So, one of my two buns is a rescue, and the rescue I got him from has promised to pay for the neuter. I will (hopefully) have the money for it on the 2nd of next month. But, I'm leaving for over a week of vacation on the 15th. I'm not sure how soon I could get him in for an appointment, and I'm...

    Feeding rabbits that live together

    I was wondering how to deal with this too. My buns aren't bonded yet, but once they are... One get's free fed, because he doesn't gorge himself. The other will eat anything you put in front of him, no matter the amount. :rollseyes I'm going to have the same kind of issue with litter habits...

    Wood Stove pellets for Cat litter?

    I've been using the wood pellet litter for my rabbits for a while, and I love it. I've considered switching my cat to it as well, but I've been hesitant to make the change. Well, it just so happens that I forgot to buy cat litter last week. So today is clean the boxes day, and I have no kitty...

    Thinking about letting my bun come out to play! Need some advice!

    Cardboard is a wonderful thing. I have my whole basement bunny proofed with cardboard and you can't even see it. for example, i have a desk i didn't want the buns to get under, because of cords, so I wedged some cut boxes under it, but i put then about a foot back from the front of the desk, so...

    Overgrown Nails

    Once it warms up he'll get to run around in our yard, and since we have a cement driveway, I can encourage him to spend some time running on that. His free time right now is spent running around the basement, which has cement floors, but it's the smooth type, not the rough stuff. Also, same...

    Thumping over and over again....

    Ggio thumped for two days straight when I got my cat. He was not happy.... Eventually I went in and thumped back at him for like 10 minutes. He would thump, I would stomp my feet, pause.... Thump, Stomp, pause.... It took a bit, but he got the point, and stopped thumping, lol. :biggrin2:

    Overgrown Nails

    About a year and a half ago, I went through a really rough patch where I didn't think I could afford to keep my bunny, Xenos. I gave him to my aunt and her 4 kids, thinking that they could better provide for him. I'm not sure exactly how long they had him, it was a very hectic point in my life...

    Digging carpet

    i have a few carpet covered pallets in my bunny room, that act as a stepping stool for Xenos, who's cage is about 2 feet off the ground. Xenos has always ignored them, but Ggio *loves* to dig on them and rib up the carpet. I don't care that he's destroying the carpet on the pallets, but I'm...

    help me find nic cubes!!

    I can't find them locally either, though admittedly I didn't look too hard... I ended up buying mine online from a store supply store. You can buy them individually, or in any quantity you want, so I've been buying them in sets of 24 grids at a time. It's about $34 after shipping, which is about...

    Why is kitty litter bad?

    Thanks everyone. I tried to convince him that the wood pellets are just as good (that's what I use) but he has a good point in that he already gets cat litter for his cat, and the closest store to buy the wood pellets is quite a bit out of his way. I'll keep trying, and I probably let his read...

    Why is kitty litter bad?

    I have a friend with a 4-year old female mini-rex. When I found out that he was using kitty litter in her litter box, I told him that it was a bad idea, because kitty litter is bad for bunnies. He uses a box with a grate over it, and his response was that she couldn't eat the litter, or dig in...

    Curious: how ofen do you clean litterbox(s)

    I clean the bunny boxes the same time I clean the cat's box. On Monday they all get dumped, and on Wednesday and Friday I scoop out the dirty parts as best I can. About every other week I clean out the trays under the cages, which is mostly just hay and dropped treats, since both my boys are...

    Accidental bonding between two of my males?

    I've had 3 unneutered rabbits before, and I have two right now while I'm saving up the money for the neuter. While I normally agree that unneutered rabbit will fight like mad (like my two boys are now...) I did have a pair that really loved each other. Xenos is pretty mellow around everyone...
