Rabbit Bonding Problems – Brando and Casey

By:  Wendy Duffus

I have had the pleasure of living with rabbits since April, 1999. I came home with my first bun, Bunny, when all I had gone to the pet store for was bird seed, cat treats and fish food.

Over the years, I acquired a few more rabbits and at one point had 4, all bonded to each other. This made living with them all very easy as they were free-range, only being confined to one room at night – the room where their litter boxes, kibble and water dishes, hay rack and toys were all located. In 2010, I lost two of my buns, Blackie and Rex, to illness, 2 months apart. Anyone who has experienced loss of a dear pet knows the heart wrenching pain associated with their death. I thought I would never recover.

Beau: The Gentle Giant – Flemish Giant Rabbit

Picture of Flemish Giant GreyBy: Claire Reid

My name is Claire I am 23 years old and I have a Giant Flemish house rabbit named Beau. He is more of a dog than a rabbit, being that he is bigger than a domesticated house cat, and the fact that he demands to be petted.

I fell in love with him when I saw him at the bunny farm. He was so big, and only 3 months old! Beau loves to run around the house and play with his flinging toys. He absolutely loves Cheerios.

Review – Rabbits: Gentle Hearts Valiant Spirits

This easy-to-understand and intelligently written glimpse into the lives of house rabbits takes a new approach to shedding light on the lives of domesticated rabbits.  Stories of rescues will make even the most uninformed reader into an advocate for rabbits and the plight they suffer at the mercy of factory fur farms, meat farms, research institutes and laboratories.  These stories will tug at your heartstrings and outrage to the point of disgust, however, you will be inspired by the ultimate rescue of these bunnies at the hands of some noble and caring human beings.

Introducing Hershey the House Rabbit

By G.G. Hall

I have had pet rabbits now for about 9 years. They are all rescues and came from one situation or another where they were not living a great life. Several were actually found running around in neighborhoods, most likely either escapees or possibly dumped into the outdoors when their owners no longer wanted them.

About four years ago, I decided that there had to be a way to let people know about the good qualities of rabbits as pets. I was upset to hear so many sad stories about rabbits that had been abandoned or even neglected. I thought, “what if a rabbit wrote his autobiography- telling about his life and his home and perhaps how he had discovered a way to secretly explore it?”

Indoor Rabbit Cages: The Good the Bad and the Ugly

Bunny in an Indoor Rabbit CageSo you have a house rabbit and now want to know the best way to contain your bunny.  Many people allow their bunnies to run free range around the house 24/7.  But for some rabbit owners this is not practical for many reasons.

Below we will look at several different "cage" ideas and what is the best choice for you and your bunny.  Just remember, whatever cage you choose, you bunny MUST have several hours of exercise and social time everyday!



Common Health Problems for House Rabbits Part I

The list of health issues faced by mature bunnies and their owners may seem overwhelming to the novice.  However, some problems can be easily remedied at home, and avoided altogether by maintaining the proper diet, keeping a healthy environment, and taking care of your pet.  Once you’ve established a bond with your rabbit, care and concern will be second nature to you.
