    I have two guinea pigs currently, and there bedding currently is fleece.
    I was thinking of maybe getting a rabbit (separate home of corse) but I was wondering if fleece was ok for rabbits too.
    Thank you :)

    yes this would add extra warmth but i'd say to also add more hay
    fleece should be fine to use as long as it's not ingested :)
    one of my friends has used fleece inside a plastic box which was full of hay in the bed area.
    rabbits enjoy company so another rabbit to snuggle up to would be great, maybe you should think of getting a bonded pair rather than a single bun :)

    Thank you ever so much :)
    I was really hoping for just one bun bun but if its best to get two then I shall :p
    Thank you for replying x :)
    P.S I have a rescue down the road so maybe when I'm ready I should talk to her.

    A cosy fleece is fine for a bun, unless they beging to chew it - and lots and lots of hay, which is the main part of their diet.

    It would be lovely if you could give a good home to 2 rescue buns. There are so many out there needing caring homes. They often come vaccinated, ready bonded and neutered too, which makes life easier.

    Bunnies do need a lots of space though, to live happily - ideally a 6ft hutch that is permanently linked to a large run, so they can have the space they need to run and play. Alternatively a shed/run combo, or free range in a room if indoors.

    They are most active at dusk and dawn.
