Very Smart Rabbit Owner! - NOT!

Note:- This isn't my video!

This woman seems to think that her cat will play with her rabbit. It made me so Angry when I saw that she continued to shove the rabbit onto the cat when she knew that the cat wanted to bite the rabbit.

You have probably noticed that you can't post links on the forum until you have 20 posts, but I would love to see the video. I'm already fuming. If it is on YouTube I'll leave a nice comment, really, I promise!!

Send me the link via a personal message please! Thanks!

Yeah I saw that video or a similar one on youtube. There was even one with a ferret and a rabbit

I can understand some situations as I never knew ferrets and rabbits don't go well together.

Maybe because cat bites/scratched can cause some nasty infections in rabbits (and even in other animals/humans for that matter).

I must admit that Rocky my cat plays with my bun buns.......they snuggle up together on the sofa and he sits and watches them hop about and binky all over the place and he has never tried to hurt any of them i swear sometimes he thinks he is a rabbit lol my cat also has no issues with my rats he will just sit and watch them in their cages and then when they are out on the sofa he just goes to sleep lol

I think people got mad at the video bc a cat's saliva contains bacteria that can kill a rabbit, all it takes is a good scratch or bite

By the way,... I am not saying all cats will kill a rabbit, but this one looks like it would...

Even the nicest cat has the potential to kill a rabbit with something as simple as one scratch or bite, even if they are just playing. Bacteria in cat's mouths can be dangerous to rabbits, causing infections/abcesses and sometimes death without treatment.

Yup... When I was volenteering at a rescue, a huge 20 lb kitty took a chunk outta my arm- It got infected really bad, and i had to go to a urgent care clinic! Cat bites and scratches are definatly not something to take lightly.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

I remember about a year ago, before I had my rabbit (which I got in July this year) there was this cat (called willo) who kept coming to my house every day, one day I fed it tuna, ate it, then it got ran over outside my lane, and my dad and me took it to the vets, it had broken its pelvis, so we went round an estate near use, and found the owner, and told her. She thanked us etc. and then this other cat the exact same came in and it was its kitten, anyway, One day my mum saw Willo again and called it over, and i stroked it and it went very aggressive and scratched me deeply, and tryed to bite me so i chased it out and a few months ago outside my land AGAIN! I found one (don't no if it was her or her kitten) dead!

Even though I wasn't very keen on her I did feel sorry for her and the owners.

But now If I see a cat I just make sure it doesn't come near my garage (where my rabbit is kept) in its hutch/run.

by the way... don't worry, we don't keep our car in the garage! and my rabbit doesn't run around in the garage, its hutch and run are in there, it has its hutch inside the run which is 6ft by 4ft so it gets plenty of exercise, but I still bring it in to the kitchen every day or so, can't let it roam free because it would bite the wires and just incase (even though it is litter trained) it would you no what... But the kitchen is vynal floor so...
