I washed my rabbits water bowls with hot water and green Apple dawn soap. I let them dry off then brought them back to my rabbits cage and he started smelling me then started to run around and thump his foot. I don’t know why??
Thank you so much! That explains it. I’ll use the vinegar solution next time!!Thumping is to express that they are not happy or to attract attention. My rabbits would thump if their water bottle is empty for example so I know I need to wake up and refill it.
Maybe your rabbit didn't like the smell of your soap. By the way I use 5% white vinegar for cleaning and disinfecting all around their place and food/water bowls and would recommend highly.
