    Anybody else have a house rabbit?

    A couple of weeks ago, we adopted our first bunny. He's a big, beautiful lop, who has the run of the house. During the day, he pretty much stays to his cage (the door is always open), but at night he'll come hang out with us in the living room (I think part of this is him waiting until the three small girls go to sleep).

    So far, I am just loving this rabbit. Anybody else have one?
    A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.

    Had one once. He chewed up the spine of a first printing of the collected works of Edgar Allen Poe. Also, he had cancer, so once per day I had to hold him down while the S.O. squeezed the pus out of his face.

    But other than that he was alright.

    Yeah, I was well-warned about the chewing. I have overloaded him with all kinds of acceptable things to chew. So far, we haven't had any problems.

    Aww. Poor little guy.

    My friend has one. It's bigger than their cat and it's really horny. ...poor kitty.

    Yep. Had one dwarf bunny that went 14 years.

    Current one (another dwarf) is 6.

    Great pets. (Good eating, too, but I don't buy them kind at the pet store.)

    I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon

    Had one.

    Little blighter was cute and everything, but had two issues:

    1. I have kids. Kids startle rabbits. Rabbits leave a trail of round little brown pellets behind them when panicked.

    2. I have an old-school wired home network. And blue network cable seems to be a rabbit favorite. Once she ate our network AND phone lines in one weekend, she moved into a cage.

    Heh, I hear ya. I have three myself - a six year old, and twin four year olds. All girls. The bunny has been an exreme lesson in patience for them, which I'm loving. They know that if they're downstairs (where the bunny is), that they must'nt run or yell. And they are not allowed to pick the bunny up, or take him out of his cage. They know that the best way to interact with Winson is to quietly sit on the floor, reading or drawing a picture, and perhaps he'll come investigate.

    (The kids are allowed to run and yell and horseplay all they want, as long as they do it upstairs, in their bedroom or playroom. I'm not one of those moms.)

    Ouch. We got some vinyl tubing to go around all of our cords, in anticipation of such an event. So far though, he has ignored all of it.

    Our bun has a cage, and most of the time (especially if the kids are around) actually prefers to hang out in there. We leave the door to the cage open all the time, excpet for when we are sleeping or leave the house. He usually only comes out in the late evening, or when one of us goes and lays on the floor by his cage. *shrugs* I don't know if it's normal or not ...
