    It's lovely you're giving the girls full free range ❤️

    Mine also have full free range 24/7 and everything stays exactly the same day and night. I've also found that they behave the same way at night as they do during the day. However early mornings is when they tend to be hyperactive. When I'm in bed I can hear them zooming around, jumping onto furniture and throwing their toys around. Chucking their baskets of readigrass all around the living room also appears to be a popular pastime!

    But, BE WARNED, a rabbit jumping on your bed at 3 a.m. feels like an earthquake (well, given his size it did )

It was when he got up in the middle of the night and wanted to play that was the issue. He got of the bed, then on it, then off, on, off, on etc. until I woke up to play too. It'd have been lovely if he'd just have slept!!

    I suspect it is a size/weight issue!

    He is gorgeous to snuggle with. We snooze on the sofa in front of the TV regularly. He really cuddles in and I have my arm around him.

    I love reading about all your snuggly bunnies

    I stayed up until almost 1:30am watching them on the camera.
    We went to bed around 11:30pm.
    They had their forage then snuggled down, but kept moving closer and closer to the open gate.

    Around 12:30am Phoebe took the first steps past the imaginary line and went downstairs.
    Daphne went down sometime after I fell asleep.

    Both came back up around 3:30am when OH got home so I gave them some more forage and went to sleep.

    OH has just gone downstairs and I don't hear any cries of damage.

    Max was very good, but he did wiggle the bed when he cleaned himself. I'm a light sleeper and it aways woke me up. And you know how often rabbits clean themselves

    I love the way you have CCTV to ID the perpetrator of any crime!

    Just a heads up, I don't think it will be long before they want to come in your bedroom.. All of ours started off, nope they aren't going in the bedroom but when we used to go to bed, they used to dig at the door to come in!

    So we thought we out smarted them by using cushions and pillows to baracade the door, but nope.. Think it was no more than 10 minutes to get through that barrier! Bailey used to go mad when digging at the door and as we haven't got the best of handles, the little turd would carry on until the door opened! And also use his teeth to push it complelty open!

    Once in our room, they'd do a couple of bunny 500's as they were so pleased with themselves and sometimes jumped on the bed in excitement but after the novelty worn off they used to sleep either under or at the bottom of the bed... Until 4am, when the sun used to shine through so Shortly after purchased some black out blinds!! Best thing we've ever brought and gives us at least an extra hour! Lol! Xxx

    I'm sure your girls will be great, but like you know they are far too smart for their own good!

    Thanks for the heads up but I find it doubtful.
    They've lived here over a year & half and have never been allowed access to our room apart from once or twice when we forgot to shut the door but they've never really shown much interest in it.

    They appear to have spent the night under their table in the front room. Didn't hear any hyper moments, nor did the camera catch anything.
