Oh my......oh my......

I'm planning on getting two of these (same sex) dwarf bunnies....it's been a long time since I've had a bunny, I need a refresher course! Also, how does a person litter train a bunny? Is it the same as a kitten? I'm so freaking excited!!!

It's sooo cute!

I kept my bunnies outside but taught them to walk on harness and cuddle (I'd sneak them into our conservatory/sunroom. They make such lovely pets :)

Bunnies are so darn cute. If I remember, it is like kittens. All I did was place my bunnies in the litter box whenever I saw them start to move around figuring they were looking for a place to go potty. They both picked it up quickly. If you have the choice, get females. If males decide to start marking corners, that's a very hard habit to break.

Ok changed my mind. Just looked at the SPCAs adoption page, lots of nice bunnies. Spayed/neutered, vaccinated, litter trained, handled......I'd rather pick up a couple of these guys and give them a nice home, plus they're just as cute Just have to get two that aren't too skittish with kids. I feel better picking two from the SPCA

Plus it works out to a great value for money, $45 for first bunny spayed/neutered/vaccinated and $25 for second bunbun! It's around $50 alone for just one baby from a breeder, nothing extra.

Yes SPCA bun buns!

Two sisters I know have two SPCA bunnies and an SPCA kitty :)
The people I board with also do lots of fostering and rescuing and have rescue Bostons, a Chin, a Healer and all their cats. I would be shunned for buying an animal instead of adopting hahaha :P

Good luck with your bunnies!

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I have a 1/2 Flemish Giant, "Benjamin T. Bunny" - he's the 3rd house rabbit I've owned. They're very smart and entertaining! Be aware right away that if there are electrical cords of any kind, anywhere, they will find them and can nibble down to the wires in a flash! Benjamin has a large cage indoors giving him room to move around, and is let out to run around only in a designated area of the house, and no access to electrical cords. He's put outside regularly for fresh air for a few hrs. each day as well. Enjoy your rabbits! They make outstanding pets :)
