Rabbit Report

Bun, our rabbit, whom we raised from a tiny, severely injured ball of bunny fur, has been growing like a weed. Since Bun seems to like chewing wires in half with his (her? still aren't sure) side-cutter like teeth, Bun doesn't get to roam the house, and is watched carefully when out of the Bunny Hilton.

"You wouldn't mind if I go chew off the telephone cords, would you?"

Bun will sleep on my lap, but never for very long. When you are on the top of the dinner menu of just about every carnivore in North America, sleeping soundly is probably not a good idea survival-wise!

"The cell phone charger doesn't work? Would I do a thing like that?

Bun also loves to chew on stuff, and shredding newspaper is a particular delight. Bun's diet is primarily alfalfa, mixed rabbit pellet food with assorted seeds and grains, and fresh kale as a special treat every day. Rolled oats are also a favorite treat.

I had no idea a rabbit could have so much personality, though.................

I've raised a ton of rabbits and they definitely have different personalities. You have something for it to chew on to break down it's teeth? From what I understand their teeth are like our nails and just never stop growing. That's part of why they seek out cords and stuff like that to chew on.

My kids used to give their rabbit, Oscar, cardboard boxes to chew on and play with. It seemed to keep him out of trouble but the boxes don't survive very long.

My sister had a rabbit that would attack people in the back yard it didn't recognize as one of our friends which led to great hilarity.

Better than Monty Python's attack rabbit and predated it too.
