....any parcel that comes your just as excited about whatís in there for you, and what packaging will make great bunny toys haha!!

I just bought a new hoover, so toy for me! Then the big cardboard box I cut a hole in the side for cats and bunnies to play in. It came with lots of compressed card trays which the buns looooove to chew and I can put treats, hay or pellets in.

Everyone wins! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180227/0e47fb89adb6fd641cc154f5d34b7392.jpg

:D I'm the same - my bunnies live outside so they only get the boxes I give them but keeping my cats out of any box I've just opened is impossible!

I see your new vac is a Shark. will you let us know if you're pleased with it ie does it pick up hay/poops from the carpet, I need a new one soon, and am looking for recommendations! Thanks.

Your pics are lovely, laughed at the black and white cat laid out in the box, they are so funny, can't resist investigating everything.

Sort of, but I tend to collect boxes for putting dried forage in! :S Bunnies occasionally get a box, but being outside I tend not to bother ;P

Yes, I went with my OH on the weekend to look in Curryís and the sales rep that asked us if we wanted help knew nothing and had to basically google my questions or I answered them myself.
Anyway! It came yesterday and I was very excited (sad I know lol!) so set it up to have a go right away.

Putting together was easy peasy as are the instructions. It came with 3 accessories, 1 upholstery tool, one for crevices and the pet tool which looks like a mini hoover head.
So I got a bit of a shock when I first pressed go because it was fairly light anyway, but when on the thing wanted to go by itself! It was so light! The carpet function was very good at getting into the carpet and fluffed it nicely. Off the carpet it picked up hay, hair and bunny poops with no trouble, and using the crevice tool was great for small areas and you can adjust the suck rate on the hose so it doesnít try and eat rugs etc.

I used the hard floor function in the kitchen and it worked well at getting hay and hair, but didnít really get poops. But the crevice tool was easy to use to finish those up and get into the hutch too. So not too bad but the carpet was the biggest aim for me.

The only other thing it struggled with, we have a very large thick/tall pile rug in the kitchen which was to help the bunnies get around when they were bonding and we were expanding their space. The hoover being on carpet mode hated this and thought the roller was jammed because the pile was so thick, it still sucked though so I got it mostly done (to be honest we donít want that rug much longer anyway).

I havenít tried liftaway mode yet or the pet tool as I got worn out by that point because we hadnít hoovered for a week and I already did one canister of dirts worth lol! So stairs and sofa next!
Oh and I like the lights on the front so you can clearly see any dust bunnies youíve missed :-) x

Yeah things like that are great to put hay and forage in. We are using a knobbly shaped card divide that cake in a delivery to hold their hay, they love munching and shredding.
Ah yes outside buns I guess youíd have to wait till the suns out so they can have a box in their run etc, or youíd get a soggy box lol. Been there! We left one out in the wet and it got sluggy :-/ eew!

Nice to see the boxes etc being put to good use!

What model is the hoover? We need a new one that can cope with dog hair, hay, guinea pig poop ...

Haha thank you.

Sure itís a Shark liftaway true pet NV601UKT. Thereís a brand new version of it but that was £299 which we canít afford, but the only difference was the newer one has a powered liftaway but I would only do that for stairs which arenít that dirty so a bit less suction just for that didnít matter to us. Sharks website sold it £10 cheaper than we bought it for at currys but curryís had a 5 year guarantee.

Oh yeah, slugs! That's very true :S

Another 'you know you're a bunny parent' moment when this happens to your bathroom:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DXJjEWDXcAAMZYc.jpg (oh, this picture won't show, not sure why yet :S)

The pot has Venus Fly Traps in it, and they could do with not being frozen solid :( The brambles are inside so they don't just freeze as well; also Matt likes to keep them in water if he gets a lot and, well, there's no liquid water outside except the canal which is a bit awkward!

I can see the picture now :-)
Oh no your poor Venus flytraps! The weather has been awful for plants the last few days.

Oooh I just discovered brambles and buns, I did some gardening on the weekend and thought Iíd let them try. They seem to like some branches, de-thorning took ages mind! Apparently Truffle has a molar that needs wearing down but he doesnít really chew any willow sticks or toys so hopefully brambles will help.

Itís funny how they take over haha!

Tee hee, we've never de-thorned ours! They just get the lot. Only the occasional issue with Lopsy getting his ears caught, or somebun deciding to stand on it, then realising, then it getting caught on the other one and that's followed by mad careering around the run until it comes off of a human intervenes :S We even put it out so they won't just get it caught in their fur but they inevitably move it!

I still can't see that picture...!

Aww bless them.
I wasnít sure about the thorns, I googled it and it was very 50/50 but i did think wild buns donít have someone taking thorns off for them lol. I thought it was probably for the best just in case because knowing our luck (and pets that arenít all there in the brain department) someone would impale themselves haha!

Oh thatís weird....I definitely can :-/

I take it you're nothing bathing at the moment then, keletkezes!
My standard bunny parent one is the fact that there's always bits of hay and Fitch in the microwave and although I have outdoor rabbits there are always bits of hay dotted around the house. No idea how the hay gets everywhere!

No idea how the hay gets everywhere!We have two bathrooms (such a luxury!) and I only shower once a week, although the only time I used the upstairs shower it cut out on me so I only use the downstairs one now :D

A friend exclaimed 'why is there hay in your microwave?' once, to which me and Matt answered in unison 'bunnies' :lol: It DOES get everywhere though, and having outdoor rabbits makes no difference, does it! :lol:

I can say Iíve ever found any in the microwave :-/ lol! But I sympathise with it getting everywhere, you sweep the floor and by the time the dustpan load hits the bun the floors covered again. It doesnít help our two cats eat it and trail it around too.

My favourite thing (not really!!) is when Iím sweeping the floor, the cats roll in my piles and traipse it around the floor again or into the living room! Lol.
