    Yeah agree with you Jay, Bailey is such a chilled out bun and even slept on the journey dreaming away! He did 3 hours absolutely fine, he always has water and a mixture of herbs, hay and treats but similar doesn't really eat. Although he will have the occasional nibble at hay and as soon as we arrived in his new temporary room, he scoffed the rest and was absolutely fine!

    Always provide them with hay and water and let them stretch their legs whenever you can, rabbit will hardly eat some people try their favourite fruit/veg watered down and they may nibble on that when on break.s

    Thanks, Julia25. Not sure about the stretching legs bit, do you let them out of the carrier inside the car during breaks?

    I've never been into a motorway services with a bun but I once had to take a longer than usual car journey with my old rex girl Hazel. She had water and hay and greens in her carrier. We had to make a whistle stop to Tescos on the way back. I stayed in the car with her, but let her out of the carrier. She hopped about the car and even sat on my shoulder like a parrot, she was quite interested in what was outside and was getting a better look. We got some funny looks from shoppers that day. All went well until she decided to have a wee on the back seat!

    That sounds like a really good way to get a break. *note to self: take litter tray* !
