Example text

Baby toys made out of hard plastic often make good bunny toys. My Mini Lop’s favorite toy is a set of plastic keys on a ring made for a human baby. Some cat and bird toys will function as bunny toys, provided the plastic is hard enough that the rabbit won’t be able to chew the toy up and ingest it. Rabbits often particularly like toys that make noise, such as cat and bird toys with bells inside. It is not necessary to buy toys. There are several items from around the house that can make excellent rabbit toys: the cardboard center from paper towel and toilet paper rolls, hard plastic tops from liquid detergent bottles (well-cleaned), old telephone books (rabbits love to tear these apart), plain brown cardboard boxes, or a tissue box filled with shredded newspaper.

Finally check the teeth for any malocclusion. The incisors should align properly and the teeth should not protrude from the mouth. Wherever you get your rabbit, insist on a small supply of the pellets the rabbit has been eating. Rabbits are very sensitive to changes in their food and you will need to mix the pellet the rabbit is used to in with the one you have purchased to prevent gastrointestinal problems. Adopting Special Needs Rabbits Although it can be difficult for some of us to leave an older rabbit or one with physical or behavioral problems behind in a shelter, I don’t recommend adopting such a bunny until you have some experience with rabbits.

Your rabbit will probably come over to you of his own accord during his investigations of his new territory. When he does, let him investigate you a minute or so. Then it is OK to pick him up and hold him in your lap a minute or two, gently stroking his head and nose. You will need to be able to handle your rabbit, and it is necessary to touch him and hold him to get him accustomed to you. But if he wants off your lap, let him down immediately. Rabbits dislike being held against their will, and will learn to dislike being in your lap at all if you force them to stay.
