Luv-N-Bunns

Rescue and placement for abandoned bunnies in the Philadelphia area. We take in rabbits who are no longer wanted, have been abandoned, and/or have been abused. Once cleared by our vet, we have them neutered/spayed and find new, loving homes for each. In addition, we host various events to educate people about rabbits and their needs.

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Well, friends, another Tuesday has rolled around, and you know what that means : it's time for our weekly chat! Today I'm taking a quick pause from our reader suggestions (I wanted to be funny and write 'paws' instead, but Ma said that isn't proper grammar. Humans can be so persnickety.). That's because I have a BUYER BEWARE to tell you about, and it's super important. Thank you to Diane Bestider for bringing this to my attention. Take a look at the picture below, everyone. All that white stickiness? It is glue. Can you even believe it? Instead of this toy being made only of hay, the center is completely different - and unsafe.

Please, please, please make sure to always check the toys you buy for your rabbits. We rely on you to keep us healthy and safe. No matter whether you purchase your toys at a pet store or online, give them a thorough once-over before letting us play with them. Sometimes items will have silica packets hidden inside that should be removed before we get to them, sometimes there will be sharp edges, and then, of course, sometimes there are also cases like this hay ball. Checking your bunny's toys first will help avoid a sticky situation. (Get it? Sticky? Glue? HahaHA)

So let's talk about what toys you can choose that ARE always safe! Homemade options are super fun. I'm a big fan of empty wrapping paper tubes. The cardboard is free from adhesive and okay to chew on. I can jump over the tubes, roll them around, and even pick them up with my mouth, because I am super strong like that. You can also stuff hay inside these tubes (or the ones from paper towels and toilet paper, as long as they, too, don't have any adhesive) so your bunny can munch while playing. Personally, I also love blocks. Sometimes Ma makes them into towers I can knock down, but most recently she has been building me really fun mazes! She sprinkles a few food pellets inside and I go through the maze to find them. Sometime she even turns it into an obstacle course, hiding them in corners, under my stacking cups, and inside my slinky! Speaking of snacks: there are some cool "find the treat" toys, too! I have one from Drs. Foster and Smith online, and I became an expert at picking up the knobs to find the pellets on the very first try. What can I say? I'm a very motivated and clever little dude. Some of my other favorite toys include untreated willow cubes, fabric tunnels to run through, igloos, cardboard boxes, and huts to hide in, and my crocheted cupcake hat from Bunfest! Ma is also planning to get me one of those awesome cardboard mazes, since I like my block ones so much. I'm quite an inquisitive bunn. If there's something to explore or a new item just waiting to be discovered, I'm there. Because I like to be a part of anything and everything, toys that stimulate my mind are my favorite. I like to figure things out and show everyone how smart I am.

And now it's your turn : what toys do your bunnies love? Anything else I can ask my Ma to buy for me? And has anyone had an experience with a toy like the hay ball in this post?

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
