I am going to have to stop checking this thread or I'm going to run off and get a bun. I might name mine Banh Mi.

That's great...I haven't been blessed with a bunny that loves being snuggled. All mine have either not wanted contact very often or wanted it only on rare occasions (and not off the ground). Maybe one day I'll have such a snuggle bunny of my own...she's lovely!

Doooooo it!



I want to be able to let her run around, but I live in a studio, so it's kind of difficult to give her run of a room or block off an area for that. Her faaaaavorite thing to do when hopping around is bolt underneath the coffee table, along the side of the bed by the radiator, and hide between the head of the bed and the wall, by all the cables. I've tried turning the coffee table on its side and blocking off between the bed and the cage, and the side of the bed (or the archway between the living area/kitchen, and bringing her in the kitchen), but she just hops right over the table.
Here is the layout of my apartment (it's about 375 sq ft total). Suggestions of how/where to let her run around safely? I think I'm going to make a barrier to put around the sides of the bed...

Check out the House Rabbit Society website for help (http://www.rabbit.org and especially http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/rabbit-proofing.html). I used some bunny proofing stuff on my wires/cables, I think it's spiral wrap or wire wrap. It's really better to try to keep the cable out of the way, but if it's impossible, it does help to have all the cables/wires wrapped in spiral wrap. Some bunnies don't like certain smells/tastes like perfume, but different bunnies are different on what they like or hate. Maybe you could cram boxes or something under your bed to keep her from going under...your apartment set-up does make it difficult, hunh?

so damn cute.
I love that she lets you hold her. Most bunnies don't like their feet off the ground.

I really want a bunny. What do you think would be a good and safe way to see if my Doggies will be good friends or not with a bun?

She is sooooo adorable! I wish that Gizmo wasn't so used to roughhousing with big dogs, I would love to get a bun but I think she'd be too crazy for one.

I would again suggest http://www.rabbit.org (especially http://www.rabbit.org/journal/1/dogs.html) as they have articles on introducing a dog/cat to a rabbit. One thing they suggest is that the dog be obedience trained (at least to the point of stopping when you want him/her to) and that you only allow supervised interactions (at least for a while). [Maybe you have a local bunny rescue that will have a safe way to see the chances of your dogs getting along with a bunny?] Also if there isn't a big size difference it's generally better and some breeds are better than others at getting along. I have a 12 pound toy poodle and a 9 pound cat that get along with my 3 pound bunny. (As a matter of fact, my bunny bosses around my laid-back cat.) They were both raised with bunnies.
