:lol::lol:biggles used to do that when he was stuck in for too long (i.e. i had to go out duringthe day )and make his statement known, he wanted out, you tried letting him run round the house at night for as long as you can , he got toys to play with that he can nibble?

You could superglue some little padded booties to his feet. :lol: Or maybe not... :lol: You can get cheap carpet offcuts, or our local carpet shop sells their old sample squares for 50p each.

Hiya not sure if this is of any help but I picked up a pet blanket for 2.99 from Aldi today and have put that in my rabbit hutch its thick and padded. I know how you feel as my bunny has done this from time to time but luckily not too often

Just a thought but what is over the other side of the fence behind them? I know there is a lot of trees, just wondering if there was a fox or some bats flying about over there that have maybe spooked him.

That just what I was thinking. Maybe theres a fox around at night that you cant see or some sort of noise that you cant hear but he can

we did have a rat getting through,i reported this and its gone,iv checked all around the garden fence and no sign of anything getting in.
so i think its either a fox or a neighbours cat.
i think i might leave the sensor light on tonight and see if anything happens.

just wondered could a fox scale a 6 ft fence?

we have seen a squirrel during the daytime.

My rabbit Honey thumps a lot as well I don't know why. She is deaf so she can't be doing it because she can hear something! :)

Unfortunately yes. :(

Hope you manage to work out what's bothering him.

could the fox get in and out over the fence without me hearing,or would he stay until he had got to the rabbits.

Either is possible. We had a problem with foxes quite a few yrs ago, with my previous bun. The fox used to come into the garden and poo on the roof of the hutch :evil: but, thankfully, Reggie was never bothered by it and the fox never seemed to want to get into the hutch either.

hmm will have to keep an eye out when hes thumping,and see if i can see anything,thankyou for the advice:wave:

He could do it easily unfortunately, possibility he would come over via the fence but get back via the hutch and onto the top of your shed. Thankfully you have a good secure hutch but a determined fox wont give up. Give the gorgeous guy (Coco) a snuggle from me.:D

I have a real thumper of a bunny too. I had no idea as to why she did it. I just assumed something might have been spooking her but i could never see anything that could be scaring her. Since i've moved her hutch in a more sheltered area she never hardly thumps her feet at all.
I've never had problems with foxes as fortunately we have a very enclosed garden and i've only ever seen a fox twice since living here on the street.
