Thread: Hello!

  1. #1

    Default Hello!

    Hi, Iíve just joined hoping to find out different ideas on making my rabbits lives the best possible!

    Iíve had rabbits for years, only the past 5/6 though have I done it properly. We had a rabbit in a hutch in the garden as kids. Now I know thatís not right
    I currently have Johnny, heís a rescue from the Blue Cross who Iíve had for a few years. Heís very nervous and hates me as much today as the day I picked him up sadly. His companion doe died about a month ago and I had trouble finding him a new friend with rescues being closed at the moment.
    So I collect a new baby doe on Monday night! Super excited.
    Her name is going to be Bella and she will be a big bunny! Jon currently lives in a huge shed, Iíve penned off an area for him and Bella so they will be able to meet through the walls first 🤞🤞

    Thanks all!
    Iím having a bit of a worry, sheís used to being outdoors but is currently bundled up with her litter mates, she will be the first to leave. Itís so cold! Iím worried sheís going to be freezing sleeping alone.
    I had a snuggle safe to collect from pets at home yesterday but living in the sticks the snow put pay to that.
    Is there any other ways of safely keeping her warm?

    Hi and welcome. I am sorry you lost your doe recently.
    I am sure that you will find loads of good advice and tips to help you, especially with bonding. There are some extremely experienced bonders and we are very lucky to have them on the forum. You can always post a new thread under the bonding section.
    With regards to the outside dilema, Im afraid I don't have much advice I can help you with. This is a tricky time of year especailly with bonding and keeping the bunnies seperate and outside at the moment is pretty cold so all I could add for you is that personally if there was a way to avoid keeping your bun outside, I would. I know that's easier said than done but a solo bun will be very cold. There are things like hutch huggas that will help to keep the worst weather out.
    As I'm in a similar position as you, then I can appreciate what you are facing, although my bun is a house bun and when we find a new doe for him, we will have to do some serious shifting around to accommodate both buns during the bonding process.
    PLease keep us updated and hope all goes well.

    Thanks Craig, I say outdoors but itís not ďoutĒ as in a hutch in the garden. Itís a large brick built room that has double glazing and a door but no form of heating
