    Pet sitters who actually specialise in rabbits or even rabbit specialist house sitters. Plenty of dog and cat sitters out there but not people who actually understand rabbit care.

    Bertie would like a robot to open his treat box when I am out.

    Yes, this would be amazing. Someone that understood about behaviour, health & needs - who could inject your bunnies with penicillin, burrito them or trim their spikey claws

    Yes: I need this when I take mine to the vet! They stress-floof everywhere and it's AWFUL XD

    If you're lucky it might work once.
    It won't work the second time.

    + 1 for the bunny bonding muzzles
    Can I also add chainmail elbow-length gloves (something like what they use in falconry but heavier duty) for use for nail trims/meds of extremely difficult bunnies who don't like being picked up
    Yes Snowflake, I'm looking at you.

    Edit: Oh, I've just realised you probably mean some kind of capsule-like thing. I was thinking like a dried raspberry that's hollow etc.
    Still don't think it'll work though, it's their sense of smell-!
    I was surprised Lopsy didn't notice baytril soaked into a fenugreek crunchie, but I'm not complaining! He can smell banana as soon as it's out the back door, regardless of wind direction :S

    Air taxis for taking pets on holiday (air taxis used to really be a thing, wish the still were so they were cheaper!).

    Second (third, fourth) the bunny-savvy sitters. I'm lucky I've got fellow bunny people nearby but when they're away it'd be nice to have some peace of mind.

    Some kind of bunny-holding thing that actually works on bunnies who are too strong to be burritoed. Lopsy is too fast and too strong to be burritoed and there's bound to be times I could do with the bunny equivalent of a cattle crush!
    The geeky one... Pronouns: she/her.

    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    A great thread!
    I would say more rabbit products especially for the giant breeds. Either far too small, too small a selection or things get trashed in a milli-second! x

    Diva resistant food bowls. I have a family size, pottery, heavy casserole dish for Dillons pellets and he can still sling it about!

    Something that traps hay as bunnies come out of their house.

    I agree on the bunny sitter, they feel so few and far between! I've been struggling, thankfully a friend is around to help but I would have been unsure of what to do otherwise.

    I wish I could do it, but I couldn't insure myself yet
