how do you make your rabbit love you? 
For rabbits that are kept indoors or ones that used to roam but have since been moved into an area with no outside access, we recommended that they are given lots of play time within their own habitat.
Humans are able to go outside everyday and are stimulated by lots of different sensations – sound, sights and smells, but it’s a different story for a house rabbit who only has a small area to roam.
House rabbits do lead very endearing and fulfilling indoor lives, and as long as you give them entertainment and enrichment they will love you as much as you love them!


Help your rabbit with grooming. 


Bunnies are naturally good at grooming and clearing any dead fur that they have left in the spring and fall. As there coat changes from thick to thin and vice versa it is always a good idea to help your rabbit remove dying or matted hair. The reason for this is because if they ingest the fur that they have groomed from themselves it can cause internal damage and hairballs. 
When keeping a rabbit indoors, owners commonly do not provide activities to keep your bunny active and that in turn can lead to your bunny sleeping for a lot of the day through boredom as well as some rabbits becoming obese. It’s important to remember that rabbits are animals and way of a wild rabbit is to forage, play, eat and sleep.
Understanding your house rabbit, its wild natural behavior, will help you understand what needs to be provided in your home and it should enable you bunny rabbit to have the happiest and most fulfilling time it can, especially if it’s kept as a house rabbit. If your rabbit is happy, they will bond with you faster. Your bunny friendship will blossom and you will no longer be asking "How do you make your rabbit love you?"
Rabbit bite, scratch and play post.
Rabbits tend to keep their claws and teeth in good condition by gnawing and scratching at roots and other vegetation in the wild. As well as making sure they keep their claws trimmed down, rabbits scratch and gnaw to keep their muscles in their jaws and legs healthy, they also rub their chins on various objects to leave a scent. So this is a natural thing you should provide for your rabbit if you want them to be happy. This Rabbit bite, scratch and play post will allow them to scratch and play fully and have fun in a creative and exciting way.
Rabbit behaviour:
A house rabbit loves to explore and even look outside your windows as they are territorial animals and they love to keep a watch out for unusual things happening. This is a natural instinct for your bunny, it is common for wild rabbits to live in large groups and take turns watching each others backs.
Does your rabbit seem to just sleep or stay in their cage all the time while your at home? You make think your rabbit doesn't need as much play time as a dog or a cat. However you may be surprised to learn that they need as much time exercising and playing as they do eating and sleeping.

  • What is the matter with the rabbit? Is the rabbit sick? Why is the eye wet? and the ear area doesn’t look well. Not a good picture, rabbit doesn’t look healthy as in these photos promoting merchandise and advice.

  • Thanks for getting in touch Michelle :)

    First of all do you know how old your rabbits are now? And do you think these rabbits were from domesticated parents? Are the rabbits a male and female pair? It could help me understand their behaviour a bit more.

    Rabbits can be difficult. Unlike dogs and cats, training can be complicated. It can be done but you need to keep trying new tactics until you find something that works!

    For the escaping, could you try to make the edges of their enclosure a bit more secure? try to remove the chances of them getting out of their designated area in the first place perhaps.

    As for the toileting, you have a big task ahead of you when you are trying to teach your rabbit good habits. They do not learn easily and it takes many cycles of reinforcement to change their natural behaviour.

  • I have rescued two former meat bunnies while they were very young. They were tiny. I have them in the spare bedroom. They have a 5×7 rug and a digging box of hay with toys hidden in the hay for them to find, a under the bed tote litter box, a bed – they keep peeing in – and toys, paper towels rolls, a box I wrapped in paper over and over again for them to shred. My bunnies continue to crawl or jump out of their pin if put in the living room, they get on the bed and make bunny poo and pee – bedspread is at the cleaners 😓 I just put the gate on top of the bed to keep them off the bed. I have 3 dogs and a outdoor cat – bunnies are definitely a bit more complicated, any suggestions?? I have not found a vet yet that sees rabbits to neuter them.
