    Do you agree with allowing animals to meet?

    I’ve always been very much against letting animals of certain species meet. Obviously it’s bad to let something like a snake meet a mouse as it’s the natural prey for many snakes. And in terms of health certain animals can carry diseases that could be harmful if passed from species to species...

    Shocked And A Little Angry.

    I just had a very Interesting conversation with someone about baby rabbits. They knowingly let their rabbit get pregnant and have babies, I don't know much about rabbit health during pregnancy and birth but I imagine it's just as hard on them as it is for GPs. There's loads of rabbits needing...

    Any Idea What This Might Mean?

    I'd say for the 6ish months I've been having recurring nightmares that the animals, specifically the rabbits have died. But it's not a natural death or an animal attack, it's because I've forgotten to feed them or give them water and they've died of dehydration. I don't know what this means...

    Bonding -rabbits.

    Hi I realise there is a rabbit forum but I wanted to post on here because I haven't yet quite figured out how to work my way around it :lol!: Basically a close friend is moving away, but is first staying with someone (until they get a house of their own) who won't allow for her to take her pets...

    Struggling To Trim Rabbits Nails.

    Hi guys! We've got some rabbits, two I believe are giants or in any case very large rabbits and one is a normal sized. Flick the normal sized doe's nails are perfectly fine, I think she spends a lot of time in the run so files them down naturally but my two large/giant grey rabbits seems to...

    Not Too Sure What To Do...

    I was outside in the garden getting some grass for the pigs when this big beautiful thing came bopping up to me... I do not own a rabbit.:blink: He was quite happily digging away at my garden. I have no idea who he belongs to as none of my neighbours have a rabbit ( I've just went round and...

    Embarrassed Myself In P@h

    I feel so stupid now. I was in Pets at Home getting nuggets for the pigs and I always have a little look at the animals in the adoption centre. There was a beautiful rabbit called Ollie, not sure what type of rabbit but he was absolutely huge, and only about 2. I asked a member of staff how...

    Guinea Pig Or Rabbit

    Hi! I know this has been asked a lot (I've been trawling through both this forum, the rabbit forum and even yahoo for good opinions!). Originally I was set on getting guinea pigs, but unfortunately with the death of my cat 2 months ago (passed away just before her 21st birthday, can't believe...
