Rabbit Awareness Week
Given that rabbits are said to be one of the most neglected pets in the country I think this is a really important event and anything that raises awareness on an individual animal's needs can only help keep us all living happily together. Us dogs and cats tend to get a better ride; for starters we live indoors and occasionally get to sleep on the sofa - granted mum doesn't always know about that! Second we get a great variety of food and for most dogs a daily walk is a common occurrence. Rabbits on the other hand do seem to get a raw deal sometimes, they live outside no matter what the weather, I've read about some that never get let out into a run never mind getting a yummy selection of treats like I do. According to Burgess some bunnies don't even get access to the correct diet, fresh water and attention!
I think the bunnies I share my garden with are pretty lucky they have the biggest hutch I've seen, a huge run to play in, daily dandelion leaves, lots of fresh hay and herbage to nibble on as well as their Burgess food, and fresh water every day. In fact even when they are allowed out in their run they tend to spend more time in their hutch, I think that shows how roomy it is!
Although I can't test the small animal goodies we stock I have had a peek at the lovely designed hutches and personally I really like the pink princess castle rabbit hutch maybe it's because of the girlie pink and I'm always being mistaken for a boy... Here's a selection of my favourite bunny homes:
