>>3860038Is it true rabbits can die from fright? What even is happening to it during that period? Does it heart just stop and it falls over or what?

>>3865014Hahaha a basket bunny. I love it!
>>3860374>Not Donald ThumpYou had one job.
is owning rabbits annoying? Doesn't the constant shitting just get overwhelming eventually?
>>3865078Depends on the rabbit, mine hardly ever shits outside his litterbox anymore. The territory marking kind are rock hard and barely smell anyway
>best general is also the slowest general
I want large rabbit breed, any one have some experience with them?
>>3865078It's a joy. But they require attention and love.
Pain in the ass, but at least it gets rid of the bots and fuck jewgoole, I won't have to deal with those pictures, fucking perverted fucks. Pic related, check out the center square.

>>3860038Sup,. BrosJust the cutest mammal ever coming through
>>3866042<3Thank you! They're such little lumps of love.
>>3860038There's something fishy about this bun. Is he trying to loan me carrots with a high interest rate?
>>3865078What >>3865720 says. Everyone assumes you can lock a rabbit away in a cage 20 hours a day and not have it be psychologically damaged the same way as a humanNothing makes you realize how smart and loving rabbits are like getting them a pen instead of a cage or hutch. I'd recommend it more if you have a big house/apartment you can set a pen up in so they don't get merc'ed by hawks or 'yotes
>>3860038this lil homie has been posted up in my backyard. Last year he killed a $75 dollar tree

>>3860045I want to tame one. How do I do it?
More buns please, I want to show to a friend
Sup /bun/ just moved recently and am now taking care of my families bun for the foreseeable future, absolutely adore having her around but I think she's been getting into a rebellious streak with me.Before the move she had a nice cage along with some fencing so she had some good room to run around, and she always did her business in the cage.After the move I let her free roam around the living room since I only had a cage for her and didn't want her cooped up all the time. Earlier this week I got the fencing for her again and she is not having it. I think I spoiled her with all that free space to run around with before, any way to get her more acclimated to her pen again?Pic related
>>3871643Forgot to mention that she has been actively pissing and shitting outside of her cage, and only in her pen. No other bun bowel movements anywhere else in the living room.Few nights ago while I had dinner she laid a large pile in her pen closest to me, when I noticed and looked at her she instantly thumped and grunted at me.

I asked my dad if he could mercy kill my 4 year old bun with a broken spine because I didn't have the guts to do it myself.Dad decides a good way to end it is to bury him alive in the backyard. fml
>>3873156>potatoThere you go
>>3873273>Dad decides a good way to end it is to bury him alive in the backyard. fmlmercy kill your dad
>>3873273Rabbits can hold their breath for 15 min, that was not a quick death.
>>3866892>>3868410Not him by my two don't either.>>3865663They're often more chill than smaller breeds. I wish I had a large breed but my GF really wanted a dwarf rabbits, and they are technically hers.
>>3873273Did you run away while he was doing it or something? Sounds like your entire family is fucking retarded. I'd wager the rabbit got a broken spine in the first place due to some idiocy by a family member. I have absolutely zero compassion for you.
>>3873579Rabbit got attacked by a stray dog while he was in our garden supervised, dog ripped the skin off his back and his scapula was fully visible. Spine was damaged and rabbit lost all control of his body. I did take him to the vet and took care of him via syringe feeding and regular cleaning for two weeks.I just couldn’t bear to see it, raised that rabbit since he was a kit. I’m not asking for compassion just wanted to vent.
Does castration really eliminate male rabbits desire to mark soft surfacess with his smelly piss?This cute motherfucker is getting into puberty and is doing that everywhere. Is castration 100% guaranteed? Are there any other methods that work?
>>3873675I have to say thats a hecking cute rabbit
>>3873675Yeah should stop the piss bulletsIn other news why has none told me I can get hay/pellets from farmers dirt cheap. 20 kg of hay for 12 dollars, hot damn I’m saving a fortune.
>>3873641That's terrible, I'm very sorry for your tragic loss.
>>3873574damn you're lucky, my bun is eating everyting, even the walls
>>3871678Thank you, anon. They are nimble.
i want to get a rabbit. what should i know about them before i get one?
>>3874831First know thyself.
>>3874856spending the past three years locked up inside a small room has given me plenty of time to reflect upon myself.so second?
>>3874831Do not feed them too many treats, even if they beg you. I just lost my rabbit today. The best thing you can do as a rabbit parent is to know when to say no. They're cute, too cute for their own good.Once she got hurt from GI stasis it was all downhill from there. 2 months of slow agony and burnout till she died in my arms. As a first time rabbit owner it was heartbreaking. Whatever you do, stick to hay and organic greens. Treats only once a month, and only a tiny spoonful or less. Your rabbit may seem upset about it, but better to have a disappointed rabbit than a dead rabbit.
>>3874857They eat their own poop and can be scared to death, literally.
>>3860038>how do you do, fellow australian fauna?
Anything I need to be worried about with regards to getting a Flemish Giant rabbit?
>>3875051>Your rabbit may seem upset about it, but better to have a disappointed rabbit than a dead rabbitconfession time.>be me 8 years old>love my first pet rabbit. >beautiful grey dwarf rabbit with the softest fur imaginable.>also very smart and could escape when she wanted.>quite affectionate and would lick you. Or nip your clothes if it was being sassy>I would go out into the the garden and kneel down.>It would creep up to me and go in-between my knees.>stroke for 10 minutes.>have these little chocolate treats for rabbits.>she likes them and they taste pretty much like bad chocolate.>only want the best for my lil bun.>give her real chocolate now and then.>she loves it>dies around 4 month later or something laying in the garden, fur surrounded her with no wounds.>cry and bury her.13 years later and I think I killed her bros...
>>3875141Rabbits are truly fragile creatures. You have to be especially careful with what to feed them. Because anything slightly awry can lead to big vet bills, horrible pain, and death for your rabbit.Losing her today was one of the hardest, most heartwrenching moments of my whole life. And if I could turn back time, I would do things right, and care for her like a good rabbit owner is supposed to. No treats, just proper dietary care.I hope to get another rabbit sometime, and when I do, I'll devote every precious moment to making that rabbits life better than the one who came before. She may be gone, but her sacrifice will not be in vain. It's a hard sobering lesson on what can happen if you're complacent. A mistake I will never repeat.
>>3875141>It would creep up to me and go in-between my knees.>stroke for 10 minutes.What did you mean by that anon? Stroke for 10mins?
>>3875160>Losing her today was one of the hardest, most heartwrenching moments of my whole lifesorry anon. I bet she was loved, at least
>>3875343Jesus Christ anon, did you fuck that poor rabbit?
>>3860084When I was in my teens, I chased and caught a baby rabbit myself. I had it for like a night before it died from stress/fear. I felt awful.
>>3866572>>3860038That bun is obviously a criminal mastermind plotting.
>>3875064Large amounts of poop
>>3868410She did when she was young, usually the fan cable, so I rubbed lemon juice on the cable, she chew that cable and never chewed another cable in her life again.>>3871643>>3871678buns hate change, moving is very stressful for a bun>>3873641f-fuck :(good thing your bun got someone that loves him>>3875160Only treats i gave to my bun was 1 hazelnut a day>>3869469
Considering adopting a rabbit, but I also have a cat with me? Can a bnuuy and a cat get along?
>>3877044depends on the cat, my rabbit gets along with the neighbors cat, she's a very sweet cat
Well this is gonna be a long night
>>3877799>>3877800you gonna wait for the mom?
>>3877800Anon what are you going to do with these buns?
>>3877897>>3877994Captured the mom and babies, placed them in a makeshift pen with AC, no way these domestic rabbits would survive out there so might as well keep them safe.
>>3878203Keep us updated.

My little shit refuses to eat timothy hay, what should I do, he eats alfalfa fine, but he says fuck you to timothy even if it's the only thing there
BIG, VEINY, ____
After 8 and a half years of unforgettable adventures and lovely mischief, our bun passed away on Sunday night. Hop in peace my dear little friend, your love and affection will be treasured forever.
>>3879647what about oat hay?
>>3878831Mom is violent
>>3879714Is oat hay a good alternative to timothy? At first I thought he just didn't like the bagged stuff but even small pet select timothy hay he refused to eat but he will devour the crappy kaytee alfalfa and all the other alfalfa haysI'm trying to get started transitioning his diet into an adult one
>>3879692F;_;He's in heaven eating carrots with Pringles Bun now
>>3879876>Mom is violentaww she's smiling :)
>>3873579Should have made a stew out of him. Your entire family are faggots.
>>3879692Big F for a little cutie.
>>3880070Oat hay works but the pieces are huuuge compared to stuff like Timothy or orchard grass so your bun might not like it for that reason.
>>3875141I sorry anon :(
got a rabbit. any suggestions towards name?
>>3860210>Activate mental state that is meant to prevent you from dying>It kills youThe irony. How the fuck did they survive the evolutionary race?
moved out last year to a studio apartment and looking to get my first pet soon. how do rabbits compare to say, an indoor cat?
*paw rubbing intensifies*
dog found a baby rabbit nest in a flower pot in my backyard. she picked up one of the babies i heard it squeeking. i cant tell if it has blood on its nose, but it was still breathing they can barely open their eyes. we moved the flower pot out of the backyard and to the side of the house so they dog wont find them. will the mother abandon the nest? i put the injured one back
>>3875141My very weird and autistic type friend told me recently a story>has pet rabbit as a kid>rabbit hops around in his room>he is playing around>he gets excited and is running around not looking around>accidentally steps on bunni>bunni deadhe is really messed up and has no personality, he is very hard to get along with and he is mostly nice but always turns into a jerk.I think he got serious trauma from that and he sounds so depressed and he plays games to win. I feel so bad for him and I feel so bad for that bunni. It was no one's fault, everyone has be very careful around tiny animals and tell your friends and kids to be careful as well!All I wanna do is protect tiny bunnies! >>3871682>>3871682>>3871682>>3871682>>3871682look at this tiny little cute bunni babi! Sooooo cuute :)Thanks for the cute bunnies ITT and you are all beautiful and amazing people!
>>3873273I refuse to believe this isn't bait
>>3860038So my dad brought in a wild baby bunny about a month ago because apparently a cat was about to attack him. I told him it's dumb and illegal and he needs to let it go but he didn't listen to me (he said he was going to let him go this weekend though). Anyway he's been keeping him in a cage and when he's gone I let him out and let him run around in my room for a while because I don't like him sitting in a cage all day.About half an hour ago he was running under my bed when all of a sudden I hear some noises, I see he's on his side just flopping around, unable to use his legs. I tried standing him up and he just falls over. There's no ledges or anything under my bed that he could have fell from so what the fuck did he do to hurt himself? I put him on my bed and he's just been laying like this for the past half hour. Idk what to do besides just giving him some comfort.
>>3885653>so what the fuck did he do to hurt himself?hit is back on something while running around. possibly your bed framevet to see if his back is broken
>>3883659just an update on this, the bunnies are all getting bigger in their nest. will have to wait and see if there is a corpse in the nest once they all leave
bros how do i pet my bunny so he does this pleasure grutning noise, he enjoys it already but i dont reach the full relaxation tipping point>3 am hes doing the fast runshaha fuck you neighbor
>>3887482good morning bunnies. nest was fully uncovered this morning
>>3883242By creating many babies.
>>3865663When I was really young my family owned a British Giant Rabbit (descendent of Flemish giants) and he was really chill and well behaved. We would let him run freely around our yard for hours unsupervised as he was too large to fit through any gaps in the fence and wouldn't get harassed by any cats or anything due to his size. Thing was a beast, he once scared away an escaped dog that came into our yard.
is castrating a male bunny a must? can i not balance his hormones via diet ?
>>3873641I'm really sorry for your loss, fren.Also, fuck dogs. What a plague.
>>3873641>Pet rat got attacked by a hawk while running around my yard wtf man fuck hawksWelcome to nature. Rabbits evolved to be food for everything else. Getting emotionally attached to food is modern folly.
>>3890836Yeah people should still keep their predators behind their own fences. For all they know anon was going to eat that rabbit himself. It's equal to stealing food.
>>3888348No, he was spray his piss everywhere and aim that shit like bullets.Do the snip
This was our baby bean Arlo. She passed away after being put under for spaying. We're totally heartbroken because she was the cuddliest pet i've ever had and has completely changed my opinion on bunnies. I'm a bunny person for life, rest in peace baby bean.
>>3893810>She passed away after being put under for spayingSorry ;_;Thats why I never spayed my bun
>>3893810Man that's pretty unlucky, the chances are almost 0
>>3895712That bun got autism
>>3896317Mutations that kill you instantly in the wild but make for very profitable YouTube channels
Rabbits are by far one of the best pets to have but one of the most misunderstood. People treat them like big hamsters and complain that they’re a pain or don’t do much. >They use litter boxes that are easier to clean than cat boxes>Their waste can be used as fertilizer straight from the source>They’re equivalent to small dogs if trained properly>They have tons of personality>House trained rabbits are basically dogs/cats that don’t need to be crated and don’t scratch and don’t have huge vet bills >very clean animals
RIPI lost her today :(she was really sweet and just wanted head scratches all day
How do I make wild bunnies not so tough and dry apart from cooking them for 10 hours?
>>3898114Let the meat age properly.
>>3898123I never heard about ageing rabbit meat. Hares yes, venison yes, but rabbit?
>>3897973RIP bunny.How old was she anon?
>>3898690How did it happen? If you want to talk about it.
>>3898855came home, she was in her cage, flopped over completely on her side which she never does, not breathing
Here are my buns. I like them but they hate me.
My dwarf rabbit went insane last night. I let him free roam and I also have a dog. At 3 or 4 am they decided it was for some reason time to fucking party. The rabit jumps on me and runs over me while im sleeping and starts zooming around the house. This triggers my dog into play mode this rabbit proceeds to JUMP to bite the wall and they start chasing each other around. My dog starts flying at me with toys and jumping over he rabbit who proceeds to run around even more. the rabbit then runs to try and chew on some dog food then runs to try and knock down the garbage. Any hope of sleep is ruined. He proceed to take a monster shit while chattering his teeth in the litter box. The rabbit only calms down when i take him too the couch and start petting him and he starts doing his rabbit purr. He has slept for like 2 or 3 hoyurs max and he is already up running to me to lick me and tearing up his little bed. He also freaking REFUSES to play with toys not made out of willow sticks on and only chews on large pieces of cardboard too small and he ignores it. I was told rabbits were shy but this dude just had a real crazy part last night.
>>3901690Does he not often get to free roam? They usually do that when they’re excited and happy. Try to let your bun roam more.
>>3900731>So how do you like the lettuce?>Lettuce? More like lettuce have some good food for once!>DOHOHOHOHO
Tourist here. I found what looks to be a dwarf rabbit by the side of the road, probably bolted from some neighbor's home because I've never seen one of these guys just out and about.My question is: how do I take care of this guy properly until I find the cunt it belongs to? I bought some rabbit food at the store but I guess I could just feed him some grass or lettuce or whatever if he prefers that. I really have no idea
>>3903597Some rabbit food and some green veggies per day is good. Rabbits usually get hay too, but that's not necessary if you'll only have it for a couple of days
>>3903597set up a litter box for it
I still feel guilt over the bunnies I had when I was younger, i was a shit owner who had my dad take care of them.I fed them things I probably shouldn't have and they even birthed baby bunshalf of the litter died, and we gave away the remaining buns (including the parents) to some dude that takes care of rabbitsI haven't owned any pets at all since then, and I just wanted to ask if it'd be a good idea to start over with buns now that I'm older and live independently.
>>3903597Plenty of Timothy hay, available at pet storesPlenty of Water in a bowl. Handful of spring mix greens in morning and evening.Food pellets in morning and evening. Litter box if you can.Give it room to hop around, eve if it's only for part of the day.
MY SEXY BUNNY ASS NOT APPEASE YOU?
>>3905365Haven't seen you post you bun in a bit. Still taking her to work with you?
My bin refuses to eat anything that isn't alfalfa hay, I tried to fill his litterbox with a small bit of alfalfa then a good amount of timothy hay and when I came back out s bit later his litterbox was completely pull out of the corner and the timothy hay was buried or tossed out of the box
>>3908067does he eat veggies?
>>3908079Yeah, he's eating his greens, but he just won't eat different hay
>>3908067I also bought some orchard grass hay and he won't touch that either, I've tried all 3 cuts of timothy and still he only fucking eats alfalfa, what should I do
>>3909062Giving buns alfalfa in the first place seems to be a trap
>>3904516I'd say that's a you question my dude.Start with a deep dive into rabbit care. There were undoubtedly a bunch of things that you as a kid never observed or understood about the process.You can only make an educated decision when you are educated.
>>3862620>>3862623Made me so damn happy when the woman who owns those bunnies was (rightly) harassed off the rabbits sub'rabbit'. She keeps them in a shitty pen with no entertainment, soaked pisspads, claims they "didn't play with toys so they don't need any", but will spend six hours forcing them into cute outfits for instagram clout.Adorable fuckin' bunnies, but shit person. Social media is cancer.
Bunbro (7) died at the vet after waking up from anesthesia for a routine teeth checkup. Vet said it was a heart attack. No idea what really happened though. Feels bad mang
>>3860913woooow so cutee and floooooofe :)))))
>>3897973Aww, I'm so sorry.Stray strong anom
>>3909062alright so i got him eating timothy hay, for some reason he wont eat small pet select 2nd cut, but he seems to like oxbows bagged stuff since its crunchier i guess
>>3901690>rabit jumps on me and runs over me while im sleepingthisPic related but at 3 AM on my back
>>3912824Wow that's awesome, I wish that would happen to me!I hope that one time instead of waking up to endless nightmares, I will wake up to cute little bunny jumping and running on top of me :)
>>3883242Because evolution is fake. They are sensitive creatures. You would never understand.
>>3906894different person. This is meatbun from a thread or 2 back.
My rabbit just suddenly stopped pissing and eating in the last 12 hours or so. Soonest I could get a vet is tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed he'll make it.
>>3913720good luck, hope it's nothing serious
Just got this little one a week ago but he's still afraid of us and runs away as soon as he thinks we're onto him (he's 2 months old now).Any advice on building trust with the little bun ?
>>3914175That's not a bun. That's a marshmallow.
>>3914175Spend a lot of time near his cage/pen and talk to him. Read him books if you have to, just make sure he's hearing your voice a lot so he gets used to it and by extension you.
>>3890836>Welcome to nature. Rabbits evolved to be food for everything else. Getting emotionally attached to food is modern folly.
>>3914175get down on the floor so you don't seem like giants to him
I think the bun's been eating chalk
Anyone know where to buy cat poison? My neighbours outdoor cat killed my rabbit and I want get even
>>3919573Just use rat poison and put it on some cat food
Does anybody here know how to make a dig box at home? My biggest concern is for my bunny to poop in the dig box because it thinks it's a litter.
>>3919958>poop in the dig box because it thinks it's a litter.so don't put litter box stuff in it
>>3860038>lagomorphswhat are they?
>a bun thread in /an/What is this bullshit?
my cute little friend
>my bunny only binkies when he thinks I’m not lookingWtf….
>>3860038What is the appeal of this animal? It's dumb.
>>3924008They're like cats but without the constant meowing
Love bunnies , back yard buns always scattee when I cross the back yard.No need to be scared lil guys.Start walking wide around them, and making sure not to spook them. Over time they learn me. Now they only split if I get within 20 feet of them. Can go work in the back yard and be surrounded by cute little buns. Its nice.
My bun here is paralysed, is it ok to clean his butt everyday? I know rabbits can die if bathed but it should be ok if it’s just the butt right? Don’t want him to develop a rash or mites from excrement.
>>3926070>My bun here is paralysedwtf, how?;_;
>>3926370I have no idea, vet couldn’t figure it out is just opted to either an attack from the mother or some kinda accident.
>>3926070Here’s him in the little box I set up
>>3926434aaaaa, I hope this little bunner will be alright, godspeed for taking care of him anon
>>3926070>>3926434>is it ok to clean his butt everydayyes, can he move at all?
>>3926462He struggles, can’t move his legs at all and anytime he tries to raise himself immediately collapses. Also if he’s not supervised will flip himself like this.
>>3926608Honestly God bless you man.
>>3926608How did you come into the possession of a paralyzed rabbit?
>love that cute squeaking that baby bunnies do>GF and I will make that noise when hugging or whatever since "bun" and "bunny" are our pet names for each other>find out that it's actually rabbits screaming in absolute terror and they only make that noise when they think they're going to dieA-alright then
>>3926779Took in a lionhead that turned out to be pregnant, all babies survived and are healthy except this one. >>3926769Thanks
>>3926815Horny bunnies make a honking sound.
>bunny is entering GI stasis again No…..not again please that’s how I lost the last one
>>3928086Wishing the best for your bun :,(
>>3926070>>3927325>>3926608what's your buns average day/routine like?
>>3928343Poor dude is stationary the majority of the day, and willl only force himself to move to eat. He has to be taken care of like a baby, can do nothing by himself and will not eat or drink without everything being laid out infront. Like here >>3926608 I dug a bit and laid in the water bowl so he dose not need to raise his head to drink.
>>3928997>>3926608would the merciful thing be to euthanize him?
lionhead turning 10 soon...his cataracts are getting worse, and hes missing his litterbox more often than not now.man.
>>3929446my bun started to piss everywhere after the age of 9, never had cataracts or anything tough
>>3928997>>3928997Is he able to have any sort of simulation throughout the day? Even if it's just music or TV? Idk what you could do to make him less bored other than walking him around and cuddling
>>3873641if you wanted a mercy kill, there at the vet is the time. when ours broke its back after it got caught in the cage door bars and panicked the vet even recommended it, said there was basically no way to rehabilitate and we'd just be putting the poor thing through more suffering trying.it wouldn't eat or drink at all. it knew its time had come.and yeah, absolutely heartbreaking. took us quite a while to get over. but eventually we missed >>3875051on third rabbit now, second lived 10 years third has lived 7 and still feisty, treats we've found works pretty good is a flake of unsweetened bran cereal, a thumbnail sized piece of cracker, or certain kinds of kitchen scraps like say a finger-length of apple peeling, the little base of a banana that nobody eats, or lettuce stems. We know this because my dad sneaks them to the rabbit basically every time he eats himself, like sneaking candy to grandchildren.timothy hay and fresh grass should be main food.alfalfa and clover hay are sometimes foods, too high in protein for regular diet.they like clippings from fruit trees. we had decorative plums in our front yard and they love those, but i'd bet they'd like apple even more.Looking into it here, it seems like GI stasis happens mainly from not enough fiber, not enough water, stress, or a foreign object in the gut. Knowing rabbits, that last one can be a pain to prevent. Lost several pairs of earbuds, very lucky the rubber or copper never was an issue. Seems like just about anything flimsy plastic they'll chew on, toys, plastic bags. Even after threat of squirt bottle, after they try to pretend like they weren't up to anything you'll see them inch their way back and start "just sniffing" and test nibbling to see how much they can get away with and restart the moment you look away.>>3880607oh yeah, bugs bunny is a sweettooth, carrots like fruit, is a treat food. high in sugar, high in starch, it's a treat food. they'll get diarrhea if they have too much.
>>3929944*missed having one around more than the pain of losing one.
>>3929286Considering it if nothing else works, I hope once he grows older and medicine the doctor gave me he'll be healthy. I was told to keep movig each limb 10 min a day for 2 weeks in the off chance he might regain his movement.>>3929588He still likes to chew on stuff I give him and gets plenty of head rubs. Also shower him with treats as well might as well give him my best if he might not make it.
>>3879876momma buns show no mercy
