I love it. Can you craft rabbit related stuff?
Happy Easter 2013
You might have noticed it’s been a little quiet on the British Bunnies pages. That’s because we have just welcomed a new addition to the family, our son Daniel. While he is such a good baby boy he is obviously still demanding lots of our time settling into our little family.
Please keep sending your bunny photos and stories, we’ll share them for you as soon as we can. firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the rest of Easter and eat lots and lots of chocolate.
Just wanted to share this lovely wintery themed video of bunnies enjoying the snow.
There are some concerns on YouTube over the way the bunny is ‘thrown’ into the snow, what do you think?
Advice for keeping your outdoor rabbits happy in winter
As the colder weather hits it is important that your bunnies are cosy and happy in their home. If you can’t bring them into the warmth of your home, shed or garage (free of car fumes) here are a few steps you should make sure you have taken:
Make sure that your hutch is weather proofed and there are no leaks, the hutch should be raised off the ground to make sure the floor does not become damp. Wood should be treated with a pet safe preservative every couple of years.
Ensure that the cold wind cannot get into your bunny’s home by using old carpet or tarpaulin to cover the hutch but allow some daylight and ventilation to get in too, perhaps opening up the covering during the daytime. If your rabbit has a run make sure that this has a waterproof covering too.
Provide plenty of bedding – hay, straw and old blankets will do but if providing blankets you need to be confident that your bunny isn’t going to chew them as this can create a dangerous intestinal blockage.
Continue to regularly clean out the hutch to make sure your bunny’s surroundings are always dry. Wet bedding can freeze and this would be miserable.
Make sure that your rabbit can always stay hydrated. If your bunny’s water bottle has frozen over you will need a spare one to swap it with quickly. You can also buy bottle snugs to prevent freezing.
If you notice your bunny has had fun digging in the snow give them a little dry off with a warm towel to help them get snuggly again.
Has your bunny been to the vet this year? They should get a check over and vaccinations at least once a year. Your vet can also advise you on care during winter.
It is beneficial to have a pet insurance plan in place because it is impossible to predict if your pet will become seriously ill or injured. People usually won’t go without health insurance for themselves, but they don’t value pet insurance as highly. This could be because people don’t know about the benefits of pet insurance and falsely believe it will be difficult to use. Some of the benefits can be seen below.
