Can i Take My Rabbit In The Car?

Ah, travelling with rabbits. I don’t actually mind travelling with rabbits but oh my GOD make sure the cage is secure before you set off.

When to Take A Rabbit to The Vet

I’m one of those annoying people that always tell people to take their rabbit to the vet at the slightest sign of ill health. I know it’s annoying. I know the vet is expensive. But also, I’m not a vet. I’d hate to give advice that didn’t include a vet visit and then find out … Read more

Do Rabbits Need Vet Checkups?

I’m kind of on the fence about vet checkups. My rabbits do get vet checkups, but if i wasn’t also having them vaccinated, I probably wouldn’t religiously stick to a one-yearly checkup.

Dogs have learned how to look guilty (spoilers: they don’t actually care) but rabbits and cats … Read more

Can Rabbits Understand Human Language?

Dogs definintely can. Cats can, but choose to ignore it. Rabbits are more akin to cats when it comes to understanding humans. I know my rabbits know their names. I KNOW that when I say ‘OI HOLLY!’ Holly understands that I mean ‘stop fucking chewing the fucking sofa’ but she actually doubles down and starts … Read more

Why Does My Rabbit climb on Me?

In my experience, rabbits are avid climbers when they’re young, and then the desire to be a mountain goat and climb their human like a tree drops off a bit. Rabbits like to be up high I mean, it makes sense. The higher up a rabbit is, the more they can see and the faster … Read more
