Hi Everyone :wave: ,

Was just chatting with my other half last night while noseying on the site and we where wondering on average how much time you all spend with your bunnies? :bunny:

My trio are indoors and let out of their cage and with me basically all the time I'm home - I won't leave them unattended though as I have a rat living in there who'd enjoy biting any noses or feet that poked through the bars, should they reach his cage :shock:
The pair outside get let out when I'm in there feeding, cleaning out and checking on the other animals.
Both lots get at least an hour out in the run with me alternating between sitting in either to socialise with them too.

Always an hour at least- cos that is how long it takes me to do litter trays/hay/water.

I "play" five-six times a week for minimum half hour a time - usually more, but depends on work/social life/horses. At weekends, it's easily 5 hours a day

I work from home at the moment, so Kahlo is here with me all day. We have an interaction session first thing in the morning and then I settle down to work and she has a snooze under the tv :roll:. She follows me around when I go to make myself a drink, and demands strokes everytime I re-enter the room :D :D

She has a good run around and more interaction in the evening when my OH comes home from work :D

My rabbits are all in the living room so I spend all evening most evenings with them! :)

With Big Ben the foster bunny, he lives in the bedroom but I take him out for a good long harness walk every day, and give him a good fuss regularly when I'm in!

A lot more than 2 hours, but less than every minute of the day!

They're free range house buns and I'm at home mostly woth the children, so we spend a lot of time together.

All day every day except for the daily trip to Tesco/Vets etc!!
I miss them all (all 31 of them :roll: ) if I am out for more than an hour and as soon as I get home I go around to each and every one to say I am back. They probably think'SO WHAT, NAFF OFF WE ARE SLEEPING :roll: :roll: )
I even get up during the night to check they are all OK. Just aswell they are all indoor Buns!! :lol: :lol:

My OH spends time with them in the morning and I spend time with them on an evening. I spend at least half an hour sitting with Milly feeding her as I am taming her and she has all her food hand fed to her. Jack has also decided he would like the same treatment and so for at least half an hour I sit on the floor every evening with a hand stuck out either side full of pellets :lol:

During the evening Jack and I water the garden (well he eats my herbs and I water the garden) and have a play and a cuddle in the living room - I hope Milly will soon be able to join in with this.

Sunday morning I sit on the dining room floor from whenever I get up until about midday playing with them.

I would love to have more time to spend with them - Milly cos she needs to get used to human contact and Jack because he loves human contact!

i dont sleep so i also like jane check on my bunnies through the night, the neighbours must think i have lost it... :lol:

my bunnies are all in hutches outside in my garden all under my bedroom window, i go to sleep about 3.30 am and wake at about 8.00am i open my window and say hi, they binky and look up at me which makes me feel loves :)

i do my bit of shoping then home to quality bunny and doggy time, coffee in the garden whilst each pair are alowed out to run and binky in the garden. hubby is home for lunch, i take him back to work then visit mum pick up my son from school and home to more quality bun run and cuddle time.

my family and bunsters help me cope with my bad depressive illness. so you might say we build our life around our family pets.

I spend 15 mins with them at breakie time and about 10 minutes with them at dinner time. I then spend acouple of hours with them in their run a day playing with them and giving them attention. :D
