There are few things in life Coco enjoys more than a nice snooze in a sunbeam.

Hay Day for Coco and Cosette

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Our big box of Timothy hay from Small Pet Select arrived today, and needless to say, the buns were very excited. They could smell the fragrant contents before I even opened the box. Cosette decided I was too slow opening it, so she started to help. She’s very good at unwrapping gifts.

She became a blur when I finally opened the box, swiping the first bite.

Coco decided he’d have better luck on the other side.

He happily munched away…

Cos started to wonder why I was taking photos. The clicking was ruining her dining experience.

“Still here, eh?”

I took the hint, and turned off the camera so they could eat in peace.

You can buy this hay online for your buns at Small Pet Select. Their boxes of Timothy hay come in various sizes all the way up to 60 pounds. (Click on the link for Timothy Hay on the left to see the larger size options.)

On the topic of hay, be sure to check out our article about the importance of hay in a rabbit’s diet.

 

The January Cure: Bunny Space Rejuvenated

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Here at My House Rabbit headquarters, we’re taking part in Apartment Therapy’s The January Cure. The idea is to spend a little time each day this month decluttering and organizing various rooms in our home. Of course, we had to include the bunny space on our list.

We started by recycling some of their overly-renovated cardboard castles and removing some of our underused items from the area. We then took the opportunity to tend to the flooring. After a thorough vacuuming, we shampooed the carpet with eco-friendly carpet detergent and a steam vac. What a difference!

Here is part of the rabbits’ space, decluttered with newly-shampooed carpets.

With the space now clean and decluttered, the fun began!  We rearranged the bunnies’ remaining cardboard castles and tunnels, which is always a delight for them. The change in scenery equates to a whole new playground for them.

Here they are enjoying their “new” space:

Product Review: Screwy Rabbit Hay Buffet

Friday, August 6th, 2010

When we switched from store-bought timothy hay to a locally-grown timothy hay-orchard grass mix from a farm, we realized there was one disadvantage.  The hay was more tangled together than the store-bought kind, and Cos, being very greedy/possessive of her food, started running away with large clumps of hay in her mouth. The hay got all over the carpet, and it was a big pain having to constantly clean it up.

Enter the Screwy Rabbit Hay Buffet.  We recently acquired this durable (but lightweight) hay feeder from Wabbit Works.  It’s actually large enough to hold a substantial amount of hay, unlike the hay feeders available at the pet store.  This feeder caters to a rabbit with a proper hay-based diet.   It keeps the hay contained (so no dragging large clumps out of the litterbox anymore), and it fits next to a litterbox.  (We actually have three small litterboxes surrounding it because our rabbits seem to like having options.)  There is less waste because the hay stays more or less in the feeder rather than being sat on in the litterbox.

Sunday Bunday

Sometimes Coco and Cosette like to snuggle. I thought their first formation was a little bizarre, but it seemed to work for both of them…

until Coco decided he needed to groom… maybe he got fur in his eyes somehow?

Coco Bed

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

It’s funny what rabbits find to be comfortable resting places. I used to try to make/buy nice soft beds for my rabbits, but eventually determined from their reactions that these beds were apparently too wrinkly and weren’t saturated enough with rabbit urine (quickly remedied by them). Instead, I discovered that rabbits (at least my own) prefer hard areas- like plastic food mats, hearths, vents, and as pictured below, entertainment stands.
