    I wonder how you all spend time with your bunnies and bond with them.

    How’s a normal day for your cuties?


    Myself I spend a few hours during the weekend cuddling with my bunnies, I just rotate them when one dosen’t want to cuddle I just change rabbit and get the next one. So watching a serie on Netflix I can always cuddle with a bunny.

    I spend between30 mins up to 3 hours with my rabbits outdoor, cuddling or taking them for a walk. The indoor bun will only get picked up and get a few kisses while he will give a few kisses back.

    I love hearing the bunnies purring and watching them run around binky and playing.

    Mine all live outdoors, in a big 'rabbit shed'. When it's feeding and care time at night I let the 5 friendly girls out to play together. One of them gets to follow me around when I do yard chores as well (because she'll actually behave and go back inside when I tell her to) and does her agility practice every day. She also goes to the bookstore and pet store with me on a leash and thinks that is just quite fun. She might be a bit spoiled lol. The mean girl, however, I don't play with very often and I think she's perfectly content with that. Each rabbit has their own needs. When its a nice day out and I have extra time I let them exercise in an exercise pen on the lawn too. Leash training and agility, though, I've found is a good way to get my rabbit some exercise in and bond with her.

    My inside rabbit Nebula: she is a mini rex, she gets lots of cuddles every morning and every night and a few minutes in between, i am currently working on free roaming her i just have to bunny proof, Comet: he is my friendly outside buck and i play with him when i feed him and i am gonna get a leash and harness for him and Venus i bring him inside every few weeks, Atlas: my other outside buck, he is a little mini rex chinchilla mix and loves to be brought inside and fed, his favorite thing is to be in a blanket burrito and get a celery snack, but besides that he doesn't want to be carried and runs to the back of his cage and hides if you open his door, he is a sweetie but isn't very social. Venus: She is like a dog, she is super social and loves scritches on her head i like to feed her snacks and pet her, i am gonna get her a harness and walk her also she is a french lop so she is literally the SIZE of a dog C:

    She’s the same as my french lop bunny but I often just let her run loose without harness. But my french lop Lilja it’s quite the boss. Getting jealous if you pet other rabbits and will chase them away, so she can have all your attention. When I had her indoors, every night she had to be in the bed. Try waking up with a 6 kg rabbit stepping on your face or suddenly jump up onto the chest, begging to be petted and cuddled. She seemed to be really scared indoor during the night, outdoor she’s an angle that love being cuddled and dig big traps in the lawn which I’ve stepped in and tripped.

    She’s outdoor now, so I can sleep during the night.

    Yeah, they are a lovely breed. So calm and cuddly, never met a french lop that doesn’t have that personality trait in them. Most people that meet her finds her scary because of her size and they rather want to cuddle with my 700 g netherland dwarf which often only can cuddle with for a few minutes. While Lilja you can cuddle hours with and she will enjoy every minute.

    We bunny proofed a special room for our bunny Harvey. When we wake up one of us goes to feed her and spend a few minutes with her. After that her door is open for the day so she has access to the bunny proofed living room. Sometimes she will go play a little bit usually naps on her blanket in the hallway. That way she can she and hear us whenever we walk by. Whenever we walk by we stop to give her a little pat. If she wants to play I’ll play with her but she is silly more into napping. Sometimes I’ll call her to come take a nap with me.

    Around eight o’clock she becomes very lively and playful and we play with her for about an hour. I will continue to play with her sometimes if she’s in the mood.

    When it’s bedtime she hops to her room for supper. I always tell her I love her as I close the door for the night and sometimes she honks at me

    We bunny proofed our bedroom. We have 2 mini rex one 4.5lbs one 3.5lbs. Then we have a dwarf lionhead who's about a lb. We made a cage a liter box using buildable storage squares to make a shelf ontop cage for a box where we keep meds, treats and those type of things. We removed everything but an end table bed and our dresser from our room and let them freely do whatever. When we sleep theyll often jump on bed and cuddle with us. 3.5lb mini rex jade loves to jump up for attention all time. Other 2 very selective.
