He's eating/drinking/pooping fine maybe it's just dark cold day and he wants to stay in?Hey guys my bun is very quiet today ! He is spending most of the day sleeping . I opened cage doors for him but he won’t come out. He is eating and drinking ok . Is this normal behaviour?
We take him outside all the time , he’s used to the harness as well. We had some fireworks around and this evening as well and he doesn’t like them at all. I just get worried , as we had hamsters before usually when they get very quiet they die . We really all love him and wouldn’t want anything to happen to him .I'm glad your bunny is fine now. I suspect he got very stressed when you took him outside and that can cause a gut slowdown. Most bunnies really hate being taken out of their familiar environment.
We live in an apartment and the only way he can be outside is to have a harness otherwise he would never get to go outside. It feels too cruel for me to let him spend all his life insideSorry but I think harnesses are a very bad idea for bunnies. They should have lots of space 24/7 so they can properly exercise when they want. There is no benefit to them of being taken out of their home. Keeping bunnies stress-free is really important.
We cleared this with our vet . He told us how to introduce it to him and we did gradually. The leash on it is very long and it’s not like you can lead him he leads you . The most important this is finding the right harness so injury can be avoided. He’s a happy bunny and if you leave a harness on the floor he brings it over .I live in an apartment too. It really is not cruel to keep them inside as long as they have plenty of room to exercise. They can't exercise in a harness.
If you have a garden, much better to buy or build a large predator proof run or aviary. I have seen many injuries, accidents and stress related illness from harness use with bunnies.Hello fellow bunny lovers. Very interesting to read all the comments on all bunny topics. Regarding a harness, I would love to take our bunny outside (she lives in basement, which is our main entrance to our house, and roams freely) but it was very difficult putting it on her. Plus, I’m worried she would squirm out of it when outside. Any tips on either
