    REW is Red Eyed White. Often, white animals with red eyes have poor vision and tend to 'scan' (move their head side to side) so they can see better. I've had it in a range of pets (rabbits,...

    She is just being a rabbit. They dig, chew, run, jump. She may grow out of the digging to a large extent. As she seems happy, has a bonded mate and is just being a rabbit, it would be unfair to...
