    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.

    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??

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Rabbitat Collapsed in Ice Storm

    A friend of mine brought this disaster to my attention. A local woman had her rabbitat's roof collapse on her bunnies during the recent ice storm. Luckily, only one rabbit was killed in the collapse, but now she has nowhere to put all her bunnies. She has a page up on Facebook, and she's looking...

    Jumping out of his pen

    So, I just got my NIC panels, and I was really excited. I spent like half an hour zipping them together to make my new bun a run on his cage. I watched him explore it for a while after it was done, then went into the next room to check my email. Within 10 minutes, Ggio was wandering around my...

    Introducing a cat...

    There's a really long story that has something to do with a feline custody battle, but to sum it up, I may be adding a cat to our household. The cat has been around other cats and dogs, and never had any problems, but he's never met a rabbit. Both of my rabbits have lived in households with cats...

    How do I know when the hormones have leveled out?

    Salvataggio will be getting neutered next week, and I know it will take a few weeks afterward for the hormones to level out. But I'm wondering, how will I know? I really want to introduce him to my other bun, but the one time that they've met (Xenos slipped out of his cage during cleaning), Ggio...

    Is dirt safe for digging?

    So, my new bun is a digger. I've been planning on building him a dig box of some sort, and since I'm hoping to eventually house my two buns together, I would like to make something that's fun for both of them. I think that Ggio will dig in just about anything, but Xe's favorite place to dig is...

    Digging in the litter box...

    Today, I learned (the hard way) that Salvataggio is a digger. When I got him, he was using this shredded cardboard stuff in his litter box. I left it, one less change for him to deal with, until today, because I was dumping boxes and cleaning cages. I use the pelleted horse stall litter (don't...

    Sudden switch in pellets

    I just got a new bun, and I know that you are supposed to wean them off of the old diet and onto the new one, but I don't have any way of knowing what kind of pellets he was getting before I got him. So I put him straight on the pellets that I give my other bun. Naturally, this has upset his...

    Advice about second rabbit

    Tomorrow, I'm going to be getting a second rabbit. This is sooner then I had expected to get my next bun, and I'm a bit unprepared. They are both males, and currently intact. (full storyhere) So I have some questions that I was hoping to get some advice about. Currently, Xenos has full run of...

    Possible new rabbit

    Ever since my bun's bond mate died (over a year ago) I've been talking about getting a new rabbit. But there was always something, money problems, moving, etc., that caused me to put it off. Well, I've got a good stable job, and a very stable home, so I'd been thinking about it more and more...

    Healthcare and insurance

    So I've been reading up on insurance for my bun, and I don't like it. They don't cover annual visits, or routine procedures, or elective procedures, or a whole bunch of other stuff. I could see where it might be worth it for a cat or dog, but with a rabbit... If a dog breaks his leg, you take...

    Rabbit Licks Everything?

    Xenos has started this new habit, and I'm not sure why, or if I should try to stop it. He's licking stuff. He licks the desk, the chairs, the lamps, everything. He's not chewing (thankfully), just licking... Is this normal? Should I try to stop him?

    Free range bunny.

    My bun has only been inside for a few weeks, and I've been slowly giving him more freedoms. The first week I watched him like a hawk, and figured out all the places that I hadn't bunny proofed well enough, lol. But I've been trusting him more and more. He hasn't chewed anything, hasn't dug my...
