Hiya My partner finally caved in and got me a little bunny, shes a 12 week old lionhead cross. I have owned rabbits in the past but they have been more of a family pet rather than my own pet. Our rabbit tigger lived until he was 8, he was a free lance bunny meaning he had the run of the garden (even though he had a hutch he never went in it) and the run of the house, he use to lay with our dogs in their bed lol never scratched or chewed a thing in the house, we was very lucky to have such a sweetie of a bunny! My mum use to feed him hay pellets but he also had toast for breakfast, biscuits, weetabix, a number of greens, lettuce.. the vet always said he was ok whenever we took him.. Now i have moved out and have my own bunny i done some research before and to my horror read that none of the above should be fed to them! Also the internet contradicts what i should be feeding her, her behavior, where she should be kept, if i should have 2 bunnies...... so many websites say different things and Im not sure im doing best by her.. Im a worrier by nature anyway, although i do have a tortoise and have kept him alive and healthy for 10 years! What things can i feed her at 12 weeks old? Apparently i can only feed her pellets and hay for the next 2 weeks? no toys or treats? I feel bad giving her the same food day in day out.. Also i have only had her 3 days, she has a double hutch with a litter tray, a hay bale and a giant tube in, I am buying her a run at the weekend as she needs her jabs first which she is due to have next saturday. Is there a specific run she should have as i read chicken wire is the safest material to be used for one... I will take her into my home eventually for some exercise in the living room where i can keep an eye on her. is this advisable to do if so when can i introduce her to my home? She seems friendly but was told not to handle her for a few days to let her settle in. I go out every morning at 5:30 for 30/40 minutes and talk to her while i drink my coffee (my partner thinks im mad lol) and when im home from work i sit and talk to her again, putting my hand on the cage letting her sniff me, i did open the cage and put my hand in yesterday and it didnt really faze her, she let me stroke her and then nudged me, whenever i go to her cage she comes to the front and pushes her nose to the front, she likes to stand upright to look around too.. I hope shes not bored being stuck in there for the time being until her jabs! How often should i handle her? i dont want to over do it and frighten her too much.. Should i have got 2 bunnies? She was the only girl left in the shop, i had seen her the week before and fell in love but my partner said no to having another pet.. a week later i get home from work and shes there, my partner had surprised me with her.. Should he have got her a friend or will she be ok on her own? my tigger was a loner but he loved life getting all the attention! We both work and i worry when im at work if shes ok at home, shes kept in the garden however we have a full hutch cover that i leave on during the day to stop any cats possibly entering the garden and scaring her, she can see out of it as its a clear plastic with breathable holes in.. is this ok? i can upload pictures. sorry in advance for the extremely long email! I just want to provide her with a great life! Any advice would be great and thank you for being patient with me!
