    Rabbit no longer interested in eating pellets, still eating greens and hay

    Hi all, One of my rabbits has lost all interest in her pellets. Both of them eat twice a day, with both meals consisting of about 1/8 cup of pellets next to their greens. The boy goes wild for them but she doesn't touch them anymore, causing him to steal them and get more than his diet's...

    Rabbit absolutely hates being picked up

    So my rabbit Mac has always been against being picked up and held but recently he's been especially stressed about it. If you try to pick him up he will struggle, and I mean REALLY struggle to get out of your grasp, to the point where I get covered in claw marks and he's huffing and puffing for...

    When can I officially call my bunnies bonded?

    Hi Everyone!! I’m so excited to finally say after 4 long months of separation and bonding dates, my two buns have FINALLY figured it out and have been living together in a pen for the past 4 days. I have not had to separate them, there has been no fighting, nipping, or aggression. On Friday...

    About a year after getting my rabbit and he is still too skiddish to enjoy being pet

    I got my male Leo almost a year ago now, I bonded him right away with my female Luna. He still will only really relax when he is around her and not around humans. I spend lots of floor time with them, Luna begs for pets all the time but if I ever reach for Leo he will always run away and kick...

    Litter training or territorial?

    Hello everyone my bunny who's about 7 months old will soon be going in for a spay but I was wondering if anyone could give me their opinion. I'm having trouble with my bunny wanting to poop and pee on my bed constantly. I thought it was territorial but now I'm thinking maybe she thinks its...

    Acting Odd

    Hey guys! So my bun travels around with me quite a bit (he has stayed between me and boyfriends houses at uni and back home and travels about once a month tops) he's always been okay with travelling (he flops in the car and eats and drinks through the journeys which are only 1-2 hours long)...

    Habit of getting poop stuck on foot

    My rabbit who I’ve had for about 4 years has made a new habit of getting poop stuck to the same back left foot. It’s leading to a bit of a sore foot that has been seen by a vet, but I cannot figure out this behavior. He is healthy, eating and acting normal besides this weird habit. Poop even...

    First time I've heard a clucking noise after being neutered

    I'm maybe being a bit paranoid, but my 5 year old rabbit got neutered on Friday. He's eating well and is acting normal. However, after coming home from the vet he clucked while eating. (I'm guessing clucking since it sounds like what's titled rabbits clucking on youtube). He now does it a few...

    How can I win over my bunny

    Hi, So I adopted a lionhead male rabbit in July. I don't know anything about his history. He is 2-4 years old and was found at a park in a box. At the shelter he was so friendly and let me pet him during our play session. He was not scared at all. Like a week later I was able to take him home...

    Desexing my 4mth old

    I’m a first time rabbit owner, so I’m unsure on how to proceed. My sweet Buffy is 4 months old. I’ve know since planning on getting a rabbit that I’d get it/her desexed when they were old enough. Buffy has recently taken up digging as an increasing behaviour that has me thinking it might be...

    Stressed and anxious

    I've had my bunny, Dante for almost 2 months now and I don' know what to do. First of all i have no idea if he likes me or not, he lets me pet him when he's laying down, other times he just hops away. He usually goes on the bed and tries to pee there and when I try to move him to the litter box...

    How do I know if my rabbit is depressed

    I recently got a new Rabbit, Bunilla Ice to bond with my boy bun, they've been bonded for a little more than a week when unfortunately my boy bun had passed away. Bunilla is still quite new to me so I'm worried I won't be able to notice her sadness. The only difference I've noticed so far is I...

    Aggression?

    Hey all. Bear with me , I’m gonna try and explain this since I’m at a loss. I recently lost one of my rabbit friends. So I saw one for adoption at a pet store who was contracting through a shelter that has a high kill rate. I wanted him out of there and here where I could best care for him and...

    Possible bunny depression? (Sad story)

    Hello. Something incredibly sad happened to me in my bunnies over the weekend. One of them was rather horrifically killed. I had two outdoor bunnies. I'm pretty sure one is a velveteen and her daughter is a half-lop mutt. The daughter is about 4-5 months old and about 3/4 the size of the...

    Possessive Bunny

    hi, So I recently got Lumi the bun and was sold him at 5 weeks of age. So I’ve had him for about 3 weeks now. So recently he’s been supper possessive. When I’m on my phone to long he’ll nudge it away, when drawing he’ll grab the pencil and throw it or bite the paper, or he’ll intentionally...

    Bonding Rabbits With Two Different Eating Habits

    Hi all, I am currently in the process of bonding two female rabbits. I've noticed that one of them, the more dominant one, eats a lot quicker than the other one does. This leads to her trying to steal the other bunny's food after she finishes hers. I'm not sure how I will be able to house...

    My bunny keeps scratching my door when I’m inside my room.

    So I have a bunny and she likes to scratch underneath my door when I’m inside my room with my door closed. She keeps doing this and I assumed that she wants food or something, but I just recently gave her her greens, but she still wants to go inside my room. This happens day and night. She’s a...

    Rabbit personalities

    Nine years ago I adopted a rescue, and I still have the paperwork on how they determined his personality. I thought I would share an abridged list of the things they looked at. This was done with the help of a computer program. Is he good with children under 8? How much bunny-proofing does he...

    Discouraging Biting/charging?

    Recently, my bunny has started charging at my hand to bite when I clean his cage. Surely it’s territorial, but I still don’t like the behavior. He’s free roam, and he’s fine when he’s outside the cage. I’ve had him since March and he just started doing this a couple of weeks ago. I tell him no...
