    Default How to convince OH to have indoor buns?

    I am dying for a pair of indoor buns. I have 10 outdoor buns (2 groups of 5 both with Sheds and large runs) and love them to bits, but I am really missing having indoor animals. Over the summer I bring a couple of them in during the evening to have a play and then put them back out again, but over winter I can't do this (obvious temp difference and also they get very muddy feetsies and OH goes mad with paw prints acorss the cream carpets ) I am missing that companionship and interaction and would love to bring a pair inside and have them here with me. Only prob inconvincing OH who is very houseproud and worried about the mess, hay, poop etc (I don't worry about such things!)

    Any ideas on how to convince him they are a good idea?

    Why not ask him if you can have some in as a trial during the summer? That way they can go back out if he's really not enjoying it. You could try different pairs that way and see which are the most suitable as house bunnies.

    I'd love to know the answer to this one, but in my case I think it would be the buns or him, no chance of them living together

    Ohhh possibly, but mainly because he looks a bit like my Snoopy
    Who has no incisors and therefore can't chew things!! (And is also extremely gorgeous!!) So therefore the perfect house bun

    They are messy there is no getting away from it, if he can't handle hay everywhere and a few stray poops he will be driven insane
