Is it okay to give my bunny unlimited pellets while I’m on vacation? He is only a few months old and my dad is going to come once a day while I’m on vaca. I just don’t want him to go into GI stasis. He also eats a lot of hay. If someone can let me know that would be appreciated.

Give limited pellets and make sure the hay fills up and your bunny have hay all the time of the day.

How long will you be gone and how many hours will your bunny be alone ?

he will be alone for about 11 days, I do have 2 cats as well and they get along well. I’m also debating on wether or not I should leave his door open so he can roam in the kitchen/dining area do he doesn’t get to lonely. All the doors will be closed and I’m going to have a gate up for the living room so he doesn’t get into it.

Better to keep him in his room, maybe your dad can just spend a bit of time with him in the room and give him a plushy.

Myself only spent around an hour with my outdoors bunnies but they had each other. So your bunny should be fine for a few days ☺

I went on vacation for about that long and had someone come in to check on bunny 2x day. He gets a small bowl of pellets a day, eat at will and still eats hay. Pet sitter would give him greens once a day. I would be concerned about the cats. Animals act different when owners are gone, why take a chance? I also bought a pet camera and was the best investment and peace of mind! I could check on him while I was out of the country. The best idea ever! I got the YI, simple to use! I also got magnetic calendar on the fridge door with all instructions and things to watch out for, like small poops and chewed furniture or mats or whatever.

My dad can only come once a day so I’m just going to have him top his hay off. I don’t really know my neighbors cause I just moved in here. I think they might be fine with the bunny cause my female cat doesn’t care but the male is kind of a big dummy and bangs his head into things.

I understand that. The camera allows for you to talk to him so that he can be comforted and leave a shirt or something with your scent for him. He can use it as a security blankie.
