Hello! So in the past few months I have sort of...ended up with a rabbit. It's a bit of a long story but basically I work at a nonprofit (on a farm) that works with at-risk girls and horses. One of the girls had a bunny she couldn't care for and brought it to us. The poor thing was underweight and had some really gross, matted fur. I took him to the emergency vet, got him cleaned up, and now he lives here on the farm. Turns out...I am OBSESSED with this rabbit. He's so cute and snuggly and loves people. The vet told me rabbits are basically tiny horses so since I care for horses I had a jump start on rabbit ownership. But I had a couple of specific questions. 1) I'm having trouble keeping his bottom area clean. He's got very long, fluffy hair and it's been a bit of a struggle to keep poop from sticking down there. Any advice on how to keep him clean? 2) He's a male (fairly young I think, since I'm pretty sure besides gaining weight he's also gotten a bit bigger in the three months I've had him). Should I get him neutered? I'm thinking it might help with the keeping him clean situation down there. 3) He's in a bit of a small hutch right now. I'm working on having something built for him. We are in NC and it gets so dang hot during the summer. Any clever ideas about how to keep him cool outside? I'm not opposed to him being indoors to be cool but there's not a great indoor space for him to get enough exercise. Currently I let him out in our dog run to hop around for a couple hours a day but only supervised as it's not covered and I know there are hungry hawks around. I am super excited to learn more about this adorable dude and hear everyone's great advice!
