    Why Not Eating Cecotropes?

    Hi everyone, I've just adopted two 3-month-old lionhead bunnies from a sanctuary I volunteer at. Their diet there was meadow hay, adult rabbit nuggets, and whatever fruit and veg got donated. Now they're home I'm giving them timothy hay (high-quality, not pet-shop!), and they're getting small...

    Barking-like noises

    What does the barking sound mean?I tried looking it up and I didn’t know what it’s called. When I first got her cage i was fixing it and there was alot of noises and she made that sound, I thought that she was scared. The second time she was in the cage and i was cleaning her litter box and that...

    adult fur

    Hey guys, I just read somewhere about how would you know your rabbits fur color from their skin and they said that light rabbits skin would be white and dark rabbits skin would be dark or have dark patches. Haru has black/dark grey fur, but her skin is white and she looks alot lighter than when...

    Bunny grooming

    I have a question, how can you guys brush your rabbit! As I said before, haru hates it and as soon as she sees the brush she runs like crazy. I can only brush her when she’s sleeping or resting, and i can only brush the fur that is on my side, and only for 5 minutes maybe. So I’ve been brushing...
