Rabbit bed? And other rabbit questions.
« on: August 31, 2011, 12:57:50 PM »
So I have had my bunny Max for a couple of weeks now, he seems happy enough, but there are a couple of questions I still am not certain of. I have a hard wood floor apartment, so he has not been hopping very much, so I plan to buy him a floor matt to put around his cage, but the one thing that really boggles my mind is how to set up his sleeping for when it gets colder. he doesn't sleep in his cage, I leave it open and he just lies on the floor on his side or sleeps in my boyfriends bedside table because of the opening and over head cover. But neither of these areas offer much... cushioning or warmth for Max. I am worried that when winter rolls around, that is going to be a problem, any thoughts or experiences to share that may point me in the right direction?

And how do I get this guy hopping more?! He's a rabbit, he should be hopping! lol!

Rabbits seem to like the cold. My rabbits are always laying over the air vent, in front of fans and on ceramic plates even when its not hot at all. Since hes inside it wont get too cold. If you worry you can get him a blanket to lay in or a soft bed.
To get him moving getting a big rug should help. My rabbits will absolutely not go on slippery floors. When I had one of my rabbits in the kitchen I had to put her cage by the rug or she wouldnt leave her cage.

I don't know what the weather is by you, but if it is hot he will probably be less active.
Is he eating and pooping normally?

Montreal Canada, so it has been quite humid some days, less others. He is eating, drinking and pooping properly, my boyfriend also mentioned that he is more then capable of jumping when he wants to, so maybe he just hasn't felt the need to do it when I am around?
