wishing-still asked: I have a floppy eared bunny named Mr.Rabbit. My teacher had a rabbit which made me want one and she gives hers a bath. Are you suppose to give rabbits baths? If so is there a specific way to give them baths? (:
No, you’re not supposed to bathe your rabbit as they can go into shock. Sometimes, they may need to be bathed because of messy fur. When we first got Poptart, she had poop dried in to her fur that we had to wash out, but we mostly just used a damp cloth and cut what we could away with a scissors. Some people bathe their rabbits regularly, but I wouldn’t advise it. Bunnies are naturally very very clean animals, and they love cleaning and grooming themselves, so they don’t to be bathed :)
sugar-celebi asked: I feel so bad for my former rabbit, we were terrible bunny owners just because we didn't know. We got her when I was only 6, and my siblings were even younger. We didn't mean to mistreat her, but you know, kids. She hated us even as we got older, but she still never bit us, ever. She just tried to escape and jump back in her cage every time we took her out :P Such a sweet girl. I still miss her even though she died years ago (after 10 years with us). RIP Cottontail <3
I don’t think you were bad owners, you just didn’t know how to treat a rabbit. Bunnies make such bad pets for children - my boyfriend’s younger sister is only 8 and whenever she visits us all she wants to do is play with Poptart. Children just don’t understand that buns aren’t toys, and that they are very fragile. Parents make this mistake, as they think rabbits are easier to look after than a dog. If your bun never bit you, maybe she didn’t mind! All rabbits try and escape when picked up :)
oceanofdani asked: is taking care of a rabbit a big time and effort commitment?
Yes, having a rabbit is a huge responsibility. They require so much attention, especially if you only have one. If you keep them indoors in a cage, they have to have about 4-6 hours a day out of it at least. You have to spend a lot of time with your bun so you can bond with him/her. They also need to be neutered/spayed when they reach sexual maturity. It’s very important for a female bun to be spayed, as they have such a high chance (approx 85%) of getting uterine cancer. You also have to make sure they have something to gnaw on, to file down their teeth, as their teeth keep growing and can cause serious issues with their gums.
I hope my information helps :)
Anonymous asked: I've had my bunny for around 6 years. I'm worried because i read that rabbits need another friend that is neutered and I only have the one. was I supposed to get two? is she lonely? am i a bad person for this?
You weren’t “supposed” to get two, it is only recommended. If you spend plenty of time with your bunny, then she might not be lonely. If you’re very worried, then you could get another bun, but bonding is very tricky and requires a lot of time and patience. You are not at all a bad person! Lots of people don’t know this :)
moshernuggets asked: I love bunnies!and i have one her name is Azumi. Unfortunately I can't have it in my house since my grandma doesnt like pets so she is in a little farm my family owns, but its not the same. I miss her really badly I wish she could be here w/me :(
Awh, I’m so sorry :( I don’t know what I’d do if I had to leave Poptart in a different place :( Which I think I will have to do next year for college, so I’m going to miss her so much :(
