    me and Miffy have just spent a week in Derbyshire, I just wondered how people transport their rabbits? and if there is such thing as a leak proof water bottle?

    Mine just have a cat carrier but then they are never going that far! I also have a dog crate should Mercedes and Mclaren need to be taken somwhere, they dont fit in a normal carrier! Usually I dont worry about a water bottle cos it isnt far, if any length of time I just attach it to the door of the carrier.

    We had a solid plastic carrier for Leo but we use a airline dog crate now as that was what we flew him in over here. Maybe put in a bowl of water every so often

    because of uni and things Miffy has got quiet used to traveling although i admit its not ideal, she seems to sleep most of the way, I've been using just the normally ball water bottles and have tried 3 of them and each one seems to leek half empty in the car oh well..

    My last bun used to have to travel with me to and from uni, 150 miles about 6 times a year, he didnt mind the car thankfully but we never had any big leaks, only slightly. you could maybe try not attaching the bottle while driving and just stop regually to offer drinks. or could you use a deep bowl and just not fill it and take a bottle of water to top it up if need be.

    Quite a bit but we went through a transport company who sorted everything out. Not many airlines will let them fly and they have to go in the cargo which we didn't mind. He flew in a dog kennel for a cocker spaniel size dog because their ears have to clear the top of the carrier. I think they put in ice chips in the water bowl so it didn't spill and they had water.

    I could never have left him behind or any of them I can't understand people leaving them behind if they can take them.
