    chew, chew, chew, chew… fibrous, teeth filing, gut maintaining hay… don’t you just love it when they get a long piece of hay and the chewing motion makes it windmill?

(ignore the photo-bombing snake)

    Anonymous asked: i have outside rabbits who have had the double vaccination against vhd and moxi,i would like to know what the amount of days they have to stay in their hutches for.

    The vaccination will not take long to take effect and get the immune systems (both primary and secondary) up to par with fighting the viral cells if ever infected. Bunny may feel a bit off for a few days- though, due to the vaccines being so new there is still a wait on side effects being reported or to be statically relevant. Bunny can hop about as they please assuming they are feeling up to it :)

    Rocka loves the red lids from drinks bottles, it is such a funny sight to see a tiny rabbit carrying his red bottle lid around with him.

    The lids do get chewed up and the plastic in some degree will get ingested so always supervise if you give you rabbit plastic toys.

    He happily ran off, rather comically, with the first empty bottle but this one is proving more difficult… and spinny.

    Take one small cardboard packing crate, handful of nuggets, put nuggets into screwed up paper balls, add to crate, watch rabbits make it their life ambition to get every single nugget.

    Mayday, mayday cover is blown! Abort… ABORT.

I was covertly taking pictures, trying to get Rocka and his bottle cap. I was hiding behind a little pot basil lol when Morgs’s head appeared from nowhere in-front of the lens.

    We are still here!

    … just stupidly busy. The Facebook page, email questions, ultimate edition editing, 10 short stories editing, NARFS and my Advanced Behaviour course are taking up a lot of time- as is looking after two insane bunsters.

    Hopefully we will be catching up with your fabulous lot very soon with something blog worthy and productive!

    Although Rocka looks a little violent, manic and starved I promise they are fed properly and adequately. It just seems that hard-won food is the tastiest!

    Enrichment toys are essential for your rabbits peace of mind. They are mentally stimulating and rewarding and keep your rabbit busy. They prevent boredom, provide exercise and are fun for you to watch too. No one wants a bored, frustrated bunny.

    Rocka has mastered the ball that we pop nuggets into and Morgs has mastered the treats stuffed into the cardboard tube with lots of hay d(^_^)

    Fleas and Rabbits

    On our facebook page we have an ‘ongoing quiz of bunniness.’ We’ll ask a question, wait for a few answers to roll in then bump up the answers with a lil more info.

    We are currently on question 52, but I thought I’d make note of question 45…

    [Q45] Frontline, flea powders, flea shampoos and flea room sprays are never to be used on or around rabbits… even if they say they are rabbit friendly. Why?

    The shampoos, the Frontline spot on, the sprays even the bombs are highly toxic and will harm your bunny.

    Their skin is so, so fragile that not only will these chemicals burn the skin but when absorbed into the body will harm them internally. Not to mention poisoning from when they groom and ingest the chemicals. Flea treatments are merely consumer friendly, nicely packaged insecticides and insects are very resilient so imagine how toxic the chemicals have to be to kill them?

    Flea collars- absolutely categorically no, just pass over the idea. Never restrict your rabbit or panic them by putting any sort of collar on them let alone a chemically infused one. Not only that but you cannot adjust the dosage- the collars are dosed for cats and dogs not little rabbits, you’d stress, panic, terrorise and then kill by overdosing them with insecticide.

    Shampooing your rabbit for whatever reason, less your terribly-fabulous rabbit savvy vet tells you to, should never be done. A wet rabbit is an immune system compromised rabbit and chances are if they have fleas and that is why you are bathing them then they are already compromised from having the fleas thus very stressed already. Reports regarding death after flea baths/ dips/ shampooing are reported. Drying a rabbit safely and thoroughly is a hard and time consuming task not to mention stressful for the bun.

    Sprays are bad for their respiratory system and can poison them internally and irritate their eyes.

    Ingesting the spot on will make them ill and burn their skin.

    Bombs are the same as sprays and it is advised that ALL animals and fishies are removed when using bombs and sprays for at least 24hrs before settling them back in.

    Even if the product says it is safe for kittens it is NOT safe for your rabbit. Many herbal ‘all’ natural flea treatments are also unsafe and highly poisonous.

    The only brand we are currently aware of that rabbit-savvy-uptodate vets are confident using is Advantage which has been tried and tested, so to speak.

    The best thing to do is have a nice informative chat with your uptodate rabbit-savvy vet and ask what products they are happy with. Ask them to help you work out the dose for your bunny and ask them to help you go over bunny with a flea comb (most rabbits LOVE flea comb grooming, but always be gentle as rabbits have very fragile skin and hair can easily be pulled out- you don’t want a balding bunny)

    Hoover the house regularly, flea your other animals appropriately, even clean the carpet every month not forgetting the upholstery and curtains.

    And always bear in mind with rabbits and medicinal concerns- just because it hasn’t harmed your rabbit yet doesn’t mean it won’t and just because they seem ok it doesn’t mean they are. Always exercise caution, read the instructions, call the manufacturer and ask if the product is rabbit safe- even if you’ve been told else where it is, the manufactures will tell you straight :)

    In the process of making a giant NOT-A-RABBIT fish squishy. I’ll be making a few as limited edition and one or two as custom requests and they will be popping up on our Etsy store eventually- when I stop losing blood to copious pin pricks.

This one still needs its extremities sewing on and its rabbit ears headband making but he is sooooo comfy to lay on (minus the pins).

No doubt Morgs will take a liking to him and groom him till he has soggy bunny-spit patches all over him.
