Since the onset of COVID-19, I’ve had lots more things delivered. I’ve converted the ensuing logjam of shipping boxes into bunny toys, and even whole rabbit recreation areas. But amid the pandemic, there’s been social media warnings claiming companies are spraying their packages with antibacterials that are toxic to our furry friends. Is it true?

What to buy for the rabbit who’s got everything — and never plays with it!?!? Lots of sites have rabbit toys that look great. You buy them, your bun just stares at you, hops away, and chews the sofa. Sound familiar? Here’s a guide to the Bunny-tested and approved — toys that all get three tails up.

Moraea here. So, my female humie probably had other plans for her blog this week. Like some dreary treatise on all the yummy snacks rabbits aren’t allowed to eat because it’ll make them fat. Anyway, she left the keyboard unattended and her desk chair out, and I’ve got something much more important to tell you:

It’s my bunniversary!

So this post is all about me.

Snuffle mats are fantastic!  I’d never heard of these excellent toys before last year when I was working on my certification as a dog trainer.  I certainly never imagined there would be such a thing for bunnies, but thanks to Twitter, I recently discovered there are!  So I bought one, and here’s what happened next.

Something to do! Everybody needs something to do, including pet rabbits.  Besides just giving your bunster a rockin’ good time, it also helps keep them from doing things you might not like them doing!   But how to give your bunny a steady supply of entertainment without breaking the bank?  One way is to make your own puzzle toys. 

A puzzle toy is simply a rabbit-safe object that hides food.  Your bunny should be able to detect the presence of the food, and then do something rabbity, like dig — or chew — or pull — to get at the food.  Presto!  He not only gets something tasty to eat, he also gets an activity he’ll enjoy.  Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating puzzle toys for your whisker-nosed friend.

Things are weird – I think we can all agree on that. Make a silver lining for your rabbit.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, including our pets.  My two bunnies have had to get used to me being in “their” space all day long, 5 days a week, talking and tapping away at the computer.   I wonder if it affects the quality of their sleep?  At any rate — the silver lining is, I have more opportunities to do nice things for them.  Like petting, training, and trying out ideas for enrichment.  So I hope they see my intrusion as a plus. 

Today I’ll share one rabbit enrichment tool that was born out of the circumstances of the pandemic.  I’ll also show you how to easily create one for your rabbit. Read more >
