    I've given mine red cabbage before no probs, but maybe just give wee bit at first just in case!

    Yes, it's fine but as with all new foods, it needs to be introduced in small amounts at 1st.

    The red colour in the cabbage dissolves in water & can come out in the urine if he eats a lot. Bunny urine is highly alkaline & makes the red colour change to blue. Blue & yellow = green. So don't get the fright of your life from the litter tray. It's perfectly harmless.

    I had 3 male uni friends who enjoyed freaking out the public by changing the colour of their urine, retiring to the gents, & passing different colours in unison. Amazing what we learned at uni!
    Those were the days.

    I don't think rabbits usually eat enough red cabbage to do it, - but just in case!
