Hello and welcome!! Some lops can maintain total or partial control of their ears so Benji's alright!! ^^ He's also super cute!!!
I currently have a 4 1/2 yr old sable point (I think) mixed dwarf. She's a little sass and we have developed quite the personality for her... ^.^
*4-5 yr old spayed Spotted Mix (white with gray and black spots) named Maxine
She came from a Bunny rescue- was rescued from a hoarder. Was pregnant, dirty, and very malnurished when they found her (babies died)
Now, she is a very moody 14lb female with PMS. But loveable....she LOVES her food.
*3 yr old neutered New Zealand (white with pink eyes)named Victor
Also came from Bunny rescue- dont know background. He was young when we adopted him.
He is very soft and very very loveable, but since we got our newest rabbit he has turned into a little devil who is obcessed with digging in his litterbox then flipping it over. LOL
*1 yr old un-neutered Tort-colored Holland Lop named Barney
Taken in from a breeder we met- couldnt find home for him and we couldnt resist as I had one JUST like him as a child.
He is very loveable and follows me everywhere. BUT he is a typical un-neutered rabbit- He tries to breed with anything and everything. LOL
*5 month old un-spayed grayish with brown markings flemish giant named Sam....aka Flemish. (of course never anywhere near our un-neutered male).
Taken in from another family who needed a home for her. So, I took her in too. As, I always wanted a flemish giant too. But no more after her!
She is still a fiesty little bunny just entering teenage years. But she is very loveable and VERY fast. impossible to catch when she needs to be rounded up at night. She runs around and stamps her foot at me!! LOL
Well, we have 2 new family members! Just had to share....2 baby guinea pigs. One for each of my boys. As they have been wanting another since our beloved guinea pig 'gopher' passed away in February. He was the friendliest sweetest (and plump) little piggie ever. But then he suddenly started losing weight and a huge tumor appeared on his jaw. After many tears from my boys- we put him down. We knew he was suffering and is buried out back.
Anyways.... our new piggies are both males and successfully bonded in gopher's old cage. Now our current household count:
mommy and daddy
11 yr old and 7 yr old boys, 9 month old little girl
1 chinchilla named chi chi- bought as father/son pair but son sadly died last fall
1 hamster (second one- Bob, passed away last month.....as my 7 yr old wrote in school after his passing "if I had one wish I would wish that no more animals will ever die. Its too sad."
And 2 baby guinea pigs- ralph, and some strange name from dragon ball Z cartoon. LOL.
soon as i figure it out, i will post pics of everyone!
Aw they are such squishies!! I would seriously recommend you take them off wire flooring which leads to foot problems and possible nail injuries. I know a lot of people do it for convenience and their buttons fall through but its just not comfortable for bunnies with bottom heavy proportions. The way they sit on their hind legs makes wire flooring impractical for bunnies :/ But they ARE real cute! You can get outdoor hutches without wire flooring ^^
I used to put non-adhesive linoleom flooring or vinyl carpet runner on the bottom of my hutch. And a little rug or carpet for comfort (Make sure your buns won't eat the carpeting though, if you use that).
Those pics were taken by the breeder. We aren't picking them up until next Friday. We put untreated wood in the bottom of our pens. I may try the carpet idea. Do you think rubber vinyl fooring would work too?
We built a rabbit cage out of those wire storage cubes, it worked out well, took us a few days, but we've never built anything, so we made many mistakes. We used wood for the base and shelves and covered them with linolium, I put in a few small carpets and blankets for comfort and small kitty matts too, so far so good.
