Do you think a regular thread for those that have indoor/house rabbits would be best served here or in the Finding Your Tribe area? It's such a specific type or care and I would really like to share our experiences and trials with our special companions.

I think the thread should be in the Pets forum. We can not only support each other but we could benefit potential bunny owners and new bunny owners. They're more likely to look in this forum for a bunny thread than Finding Your Tribe.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

Ok cool...so I don't know where to start since I have found some neat things out along the way. Like how I got a "loan" to pay for Hopper's spay, and even when I pay it back it's only $60 total. They totally screened well and do them regularly! So not only was the loan thing cool, but the vet is affordable for my other one too.

When we adopted Peanut, our vet gave us an "overpopulation discount" on her spay I'd never heard of that before...

Hi, I'm Emily, and I'm a bunny slave Right now I live with Rex Harrison, an eight year old black Mini Rex. His companion, my heart bunny Peanut, passed away a week ago. The house feels a lot emptier without her Rex is adjusting fairly well, though he misses her. Rabbits are such smart and sensitive creatures. I can't imagine not sharing my life with a bunny or two

Count me in the bunny lovers! I have a Standard Rex female named Kahlua and she is a sweetheart! she has such an attitude but loves to be pet and kissed. She hasn't been spayed yet but it is scheduled.

Both our babies are loops, one a rex mutt and the other pure-breed french. Our 'little' one is 7lbs and the big one is 13lbs. I find it odd that our apts have a one animal 20lb limit, and together the bunnies make exactly 20lbs. We're the managers so it doesn't matter anyway, but none-the-less Most people think Hopper is big, then they see Ginger at the glass door or in the bathroom. GIANT BUNNIES.

It's really a bad pic of her since she's white underside, but is brown,black, and gray on top. It looks like a different bunny upside down. But thanks! What did you think of dh with his bunny?

we had a b unny for exactly 10 years. he was the light of our universes while here, and is still a huge part of our life since he's been gone. it was sept 5 1997 when he came into our lives, and sept 5, 2007 when he left.

i love bunnies so much, and i loved my october j so very much. but right now, we're without any pets--and it's good for us.

we've talked about having bunnies again in the future, but we think it would be too much for us to have one now, and hten also when our children are very young. so, we figure that we'll wait until the time is right.

I understand. After having pets most all of my childhood, after my two cats passed away and then I found myself pregnant, we gave the new ones to other families. It was best, but weird for me to have no pets for years. Hailey was 3 when we got Hopper. Dh and I think we will continue to have bunnies for a long time.

zoebird - sounds like you're doing what's right for your family at this time

I'm still wondering what the future will bring for Rex and I. He has always been a social bunny, and even though I love him dearly, obviously it's not possible for me to be with him at all times. I first recognized his need for a companion when he bonded himself to the dog - he wouldn't even eat his breakfast until Pepper had been served and was eating his

He was three years old when we brought two year old Peanut home from the shelter. It wasn't exactly love at first sight (more like "loathing that led to resentment that led to semi-tolerance that led to like that led to love" ) But the bond that he would eventually share with Peanut was incredibly strong and beautiful.

Though he is adjusting well to being alone once more, it hurts me to know that he no longer has that constant companion. At this point, I have not felt that this is the right time to bring another rabbit home. Maybe that will change at some point, or maybe just the right bunny will hop into our lives. I don't know. I just want him to be happy

I've had 3 mini-lops over the past 13 years. I just have a thing for mini-lops. I can't resist their ears. Two of my bunnies have passed away but one is still with me though her head tilt and dizziness aren't going away even after 2 weeks of treatment. We're going to x-ray on Wednesday to see if it's something other than an ear infection. I can sympathize with you, Zoebird. I don't know if I'll bring another bunny home in the near future if Smokey passes away. It took me a long time to get over the deaths of my other two bunnies.

We also have a dog and several semiferal outdoor cats we take care of.

I have not heard of an overpopulation discount on neutering but that sounds like a great idea! Our local humane society provides a discount coupon one can take to vets for neutering/spaying cats and dogs. They don't have such a discount for bunnies.

Here is a picture of my Smokey.

Ah the trials of bonding bunnies. It's been really ruff with my two. I took full advantage of out move a couple months ago, and the car ride, neutral territory, and "stress" of a new place has changed things between them wonderfully! One is now totally non-aggressive, the other will still try and bite if I didn't stop. It used to be full on fur-flying, knock 'em out fights. With a baby gate, screen door, or sliding glass door, they actually lay side by side. The current biter even licks what ever is between them where the other is. Now that is one sided, and so much more manageable, I have great hopes for the post-spay difference.

I searched online for all sorts of financial help. In my area I found Animal Aid and doesn't matter the type of animal. The humane societies can sometimes help, but you have to really talk to the right person or a live one at that. Throughly check the Houses Rabbit Society, again area specific there is also Rabbit Advocates in Oregon. The humane society is a good resource for a less expensive vet that is regularly caring for rabbits, since the HS is not paying $200 for a spay/neuter.

Thanks Mama. I adopted Smokey from our human society and they spayed her as part of the adoption process. But it is difficult to find a vet here who will spay a bunny. I found a few who would neuter a male bunny but they didn't spay female bunnies.

So bunnies mamas ...what do you feed your bunnies? My bunny loves timothy hay. I buy a huge bag of it at a local feed store. It's $4/bag and it lasts a while. She also gets timothy hay pellets and the occasional treat but we've had to ease off the treats her poop was getting mushy. Sorry, TMI.

Yeah, I'm a mean bunny mommy, but we don't really do treats here : Peanut had the world's most sensitive tummy (couldn't even handle fresh veggies!) and so the bunnies have been fed limited Timothy pellets (Oxbow Basics-T) and unlimited fresh grass hay (from Farmer Dave on eBay ) I steer clear of anything that's excessively sweet or starchy.

With Peanut gone, I've been reintroducing fresh greens to Rex's diet and he really loves them; just a handful of parsley or dill with dinner. I've also just started to give him pinch of flaxseeds with his dinner.

I'm glad I found this thread. I could use some help/support from other rabbit owners.

We have a New Zealand bunny, around 1 yo, adopted in Jan. Billy is a very friendly, great rabbit, however we have some problems


2) When we first got him, we used to let him hop freely around the house (when we were home) and just put him in the cage when out. Then he started pooping on the baskets of toys we have, and since then EVERY TIME he is out and gets into the playroom (now I only let him out, when I can make sure that door is/will stay closed) he WILL poop on the toys. Unfortunately he now spends much more time in his pen, since I can't make sure the playroom door is kept closed all the time when the kids are awake and playing.

3) He chews on our wires, and we even have them ALL encased in that wire protector and he still chews on that, and I am afraid he will chew through.

4) We tried putting baby gates up to keep him in certain rooms/away from the computer...he hops right over them. IN fact his "cage" now is a pen (like one of those small animal playpens) with a mesh netting on top, since he was hopping right over the top of that...(and it is pretty high).

Any ideas on how we can let him hop freely (or more freely) w/o sacrificing our wires or having him poop on our toys???

I really want to let him hop around freely more, (ideally I would let him out of the pen whenever we are home), however I just can't figure out to do it so he isn't pooping on toys or chewing wires.

Can I join? We want to get a bunny. I miss having a bunny, but also need some bunny poop for my compost bin : We can't have any livestock since we moved to the burbs . I had and bred Standard Rex's when I was in FFA. I want a big bunny that won't be too skittish and that can run around out in our yard, while we are supervising of course. I miss watching bunnies kick up thier heals in joy and running around the yard or laying out in the sun. :

Kahlua gets limited pellets, we use alfalfa pellets due to not having timothy pellets sold in town and shipping is quite expensive for online orders. She gets unlimited bermuda grass hay and gets veggies a couple times a week, we keep the higher calcium veggies very limited. She also gets papaya tablets twice a week.

First off, is he fixed? Bunnies are very territorial, but it lessens with the neuter and spaying. With the large breed, you need a 4ft height to keep them in. You can buy them that way, they are more expensive. You can buy Bitter Apple or other nasty tasting spray to put on things you can't move. Bunny Bytes have it in there inventory. http://www.bunnybytes.com/cgi-bin/start.cgi
The pooping is part territory part normal behavior. You can use a spray bottle and spray him each time he tries to enter the room or put a potty box in there. Add some of his poop and litter so it smells like him and a handful or hay to encourage staying.

I get pellets call Albert's Double Duty recommended by the Breeder that Ginger originally sold from. One ounce per pound, then I keep a bale of hay wrapped up and give it to them unlimitedly, and it seconds as cheap bedding. The 40lb bale was $8 from last year and I still have half of it left. It appears to still be fresh since it's wrapped and the bunnies still happily munch it. I use Good Meows for litter, very economical and safe.

She said "We can't have any livestock since we moved to the burbs" livestock not specifically bunnies, like goats, cows, pigs since she was a farmer. Rabbits are categorized as livestock not pets, but most don't know that.

It must not be like that everywhere. Domestic rabbits are considered pet animals under our state laws.

Hmmm... wierd I never knew they were classified as livestock. It's more a pet animal to me. Yes, I can have a bunny. I was just saying since I can't have livestock poop to fill my compost bin I was looking at getting a bunny to help me out. :-)

Yes, he is neutered. We got him from a rabbit rescue, and the automatically fix all bunnies (that are old enough). .

Thanks for the spray idea. I will try that and see if it deters him and just keeps him out of that room.

I've tried putting a potty box in there. He still poops on the toys...even if the box is right next to the toy bin.

You can also stomp your foot on the ground, since that is a warning STOP message for Lagomorphs. You have to be consistent just like with our other kids, sort of hang around when you can closely monitor. With the spray, the face is best since they hate the water and will eventually stop to clean there face up. Stomp and spray at the same time and see if that works.

what do you feed your bunnies?

here is what i did feed my bunny. actually, there were multiple diets.

when he was young, we bought a high-fiber rabbit feed that was for 'lab rabbits.' it was an excellent feed, though made by purina. we also had timothy hay--which october j hated to eat. he would get a variety salad greens every day and for treats, 3 blue berries (frozen) per day.

eventually, we gave up on timothy hay because he wouldn't eat it. he would occassionally eat the tufty parts, but otherwise he would just piss on the hay and i'd have to change it right away. so, we stopped doing that.

over the last 3-4 years, this was pretty much his daily diet:

organic pellet feed
fresh water
5 dried goji berries per day
unlimited mixed salad greens (included kale, swiss chard etc)
wheat grass
carrot (baby) twice a week
garden fresh tomato (twice a week)
1-3 blue berries (frozen) per day

raw scone (made by a friend) which had many sprouted grains, dried fruit and nuts, etc. this helped him gain back and maintain a healthy weight.

he rarely had soft poop, and he ate a very diverse diet of a lot of local organic green vegetables. his health was amazing until the last two days. it was then that he stopped eating.

So Ginger has gone back and forth with a sore on her hind foot. I'll clean and Hydro peroxide it daily, then a week later I'll check it and it's pussy AGAIN. This has happened 3 times!!! Otherwise she is healthy, eating, drinking, energy, doesn't seem feverish. I tried raw honey and wrapped it up. Shockingly she hasn't ripped it off yet!
