Going camping, is it okay to leave her???

We're going camping for 4 nights/5 days. I'm planning on having a large enclosure attached to her cage so that she can come out of her cage and run around a little. I will have ample amount of timothy hay, timothy hay pellets, vegetables and water. On day 3 I will be having someone check on her to make sure she has enough food/water, ect. But my friend cannot come everyday. Do you think that she will be okay??? I've never left her alone before and not sure.

Thanks
Heather

I'm not sure, I wonder if she'll eat the big supply all in the one night you give it to her? Does she usually eat like that? But it's good to have someone come check on her.


You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.

I would definitely not leave your rabbits alone without someone checking on and feeding them every day. It's very easy for a water bowl to get overturned, a bottle to leak, or someone to have an accident and need medical care.

Yeah, I agree. Anything can happen.

I agree. I would never leave my bunnies without having someone check up on them at least once a day.

And its an outside hutch? If so, DEFINATELY have it checked everyday more than once if possible bc it only takes a couple minutes for a predator to come by. If its inside its a little safer but you want to be careful about leaving veggies out for 3 days before someone will come by and poop needs to be scooped everyday.
Food could be eaten in one day if your bunny has a problem. I know for sure if I was leaving my bunnies alone for 3 days Akina would do badly bc she looooooves eating when she's bored but Acacia would save hers. Plus, like the others mentioned water can run out or become spilled and hay and veggies can attract bugs.
