Being new here why post pic after 20 posts?
Any was she has to stay out side because we have two cats in the house with VERY high prey drive and they would just mangle her. Is it okay to use straw for bedding or is pine shavings best.
BTW she is already getting better about the cage aggresion. We give her small treats 2-3 times a day and pick her up every time we go to the barn. She sometimes still tries to hide but is getting so much better.
Thanks for all the help!
First of all, congrats on your bunny
Many years of happy to ya
You have to have at least 20 posts when your new in order to be allowed to post pictures.
As for her living outdoors, make sure the pen is prey proof (people here can help you with that), and warm for the winnter. Also, attention since she's alone. My 2 bunnies live indoors and I have 2 cats as well. My male Illusion picks on the bunnies but I keep his nails clipped so he can't harm them. Introduce them slowly and they can get along.
I support spaying her where she's so young. My bunny Acacia was SO aggressive prior to her spaying! At times it seemed she was alright but once she was spayed and her hormones died down she was so much easier to train and tame. She binkies now whenever I go in to tickle her or feed them. She comes to my lap for her treats.
Pine is NO good! There are harmful toxins in them and Cedar which can cause their systems to deteriorate. Not good. Use Yesterdays News, newspapers, (maybe someone here can suggest something else since I dont cage my rabbits. Im not sure of ground material) Litter material should consist or paper such as Yesterdays News since if it happens to be ingested she can pass it safely. Cat litter and clay based ones can potentially block their sensitive colons.
Pro-active is better than Re-active!
She should ALWAYS have fresh grass hay like timothy, meadow, etc... to munch on. If you can, I think you can use it as bedding in outdoor pens for added warmth in the winter. But you have to change it frequently. And add more every day for eating.
I hope if you have any more questions you know we're here to help! ^.^ Good luck!
