Bunnies On The Run

Because Larry and Curly need regular exercise to keep their tummies working properly, Jim and I move them to the carpet where they can do binkies, jumping straight up and down, and chase one another.

This video is the third take. It is difficult to catch any animal doing whatever is wanted on film. This little clip shows some adorable movement, chasing, binkies, and playing with the ball. No wonder we think they are so cute.

Like any pet, there are important things to remember. First, bunnies can get bugs in their fir if permitted to romp outside. Ours are indoor bunnies only. Any cage with a wire floor can hurt tender bunny feet. We have linoleum down and a relatively large enclosure for our bunnies. Carrots are not good for rabbits. Timothy hay is the number one safe food. Timothy pellets are a good secondary food. Occasional crasins and lettuce are nice treats. If food rules are not observed stasis can develop which is so serious that a bunny can die within a few hours.

Good news, bunnies are litter trained and rarely if ever have accidents.
Now go back and see again how cute my bunnies are.

Binkys and Flops ... yup ... bunnies!!!!

Lucky and Winston there always will come in ... except when it is TIME to come in. Then they run and hide!

Thanks for visiting my sight. How do you keep your bunnies from chewing at the furniture. Do they use litter pans when they are in the house?

Our bunnies are spoiled rotten and that's the way we like it.

I know the rabbits are cute. We spend too much time not to notice. Don't we?
