House Rabbit Guest

We are really enjoying the company of our house rabbit guest.  We have slowly built up a trusting relationship with him and he continues to enjoy a stress free home from home experience.
He enjoys watching tv with us and we like it too.  His owners very sweetly left him a christmas present.  We opened it for him on Christmas Day with our own, so he has had a couple of christmas treats but not too many!
 

The cold weather is here - water watch

When checking your outdoor animals please ensure that your animal has adequate protection from the cold and wind.
Remember that access to fresh water is vital for their health and welfare.  Even if you have insulated bottle protectors make sure that the drip nozzle isn't frozen.  I routinely check ours twice a day.

Oscar the Syrian Hamster

Our middle aged guest, is too cute! He is surprisingly more nimble than his waistline would suggest :)
Another guest we are totally in love with.
He was given a locust bean yesterday and it only tooks seconds for him to sniff it out from where I'd hidden it for him to find.

One of our baby rabbits has become a little shy

One of our baby rabbits has become a little shy. He's only a 11 weeks old but he had previously been the more outgoing of the brother and sister pair we bought. The previously timid sister is now the boldest and is almost dog like in her affection towards us.
 
We have decided to bring the boy (custard) back into the house again for a few overnight stays to try to get more accustomed to us....watch this space for progress.....

Custard and Doughnut are here

We are very excited about the arrival of the new Focus home rabbits.  They are brother and sister and only 9 weeks old.  They are dwarf lop x english.  They are just adorable.  They will live apart some time yet, until they are heavy enough to be neutured and then at least 5 weeks after that.  Then we will look to bonding them....

Hope you enjoyed your holiday Button

We found little Button to be a very intelligent and curious little bun.  He kept us entertained watching his jumps and spins in his run.  Tunnels and the willow stick roll seemed to be the favourite toys.  Look to your next visit.

Rabbit entertainment

Our two rabbit guests are enjoying the hay box with hidden treats inside.  Lovely to see such happy bunnies, their enertainment is changed each day to keep them stimulated and occupied, but the hay box is a new type of entertainment which has been explored to the full.
