    Well Stan now has a new habit which makes it very hard for us to tidy up after him! lol :D

    We get the dustpan and brush out to clean up and he goes bezerk! He punces on it really nasty and growls really loud and aggressively like a big dog! lol! Its so funny but very annoying when you are in a rush! He also does this with the hoover and the mop but not quite got the growiling with them yet!

    But then when we put the dustpan and brush down he sometimes just goes and lies down with it so that his head is in it as if it is comfort! Very odd bunny! lol :D

    I never even knew that Rabbits could growl like a dog until Stan came along! But then again i think he actually thinks he is a dog! :p

    Maybe give him something to occupy him, like a carrot or something nice while you clean

    I have the same problem with my two. Infact Louise is worse that Thelma....she'll wait till I have a dustpan full of poos, then she comes along and flips it for me, so I have nothing! Very helpful!

    boo attacked my dustpan and brush this morning and bit it. i wait until he goes out of his cage to clean it but this morning he jumped back in mid clean and attacked the brush!!!

    then sometimes he just sits in it, very bizzare.

    Funny!

    I have heard that bunnies growl, but have never witnessed it.

    Harry stoms his feel really loud if he is not getting attention, as if to say come look at me!
