Most of you kno, I've had Thane for well over a year and he's usually pretty happy and active. A few months back I moved into my grandparents. The room we stay in is big enough, has wooden flooring and is quite cold. When I was sleeping on the floor, Thane, loved his dashes around the room. Now I've gotten a bed and he no longer runs around, he mostly sits on his rug, sleeping. I feel terrible, like he's unhappy. No binkies in weeks and no crazy runs.

What should I do?

have you tried putting more blankets and rugs on the floor? When I temporary stayed at my parents I had to put 4 or 5 rugs and then Bunjamin would binky and run around them.

Have you tried some new toys? Something to spark his interest? I also agree with FF about the rugs.

Sorry to hear that Thane is acting off- it's such a worry. I wish they could talk! The adjustment might be hard for him- bunnies can be strange about their environments. I agree that the hardwood floors can lead to les activity- my bunnies slip on hardwood/linoleum floors. I would get inexpensive rugs/runners so that Thane has a "trail" of secure footing all the way around the room. That way, he can binky or run around without slipping on a patch of hardwood . If you've done all that and he still isn't seeming right, I would say the vet would be a good idea. I hate to bring bunnies to the vet unless I'm sure they are ill- so traumatic & expensive- but better safe than sorry. Hopefully Thane will perk up on his own! Oh yeah- how's the weather? Heat can make rabbits lethargic too.

Nope, not at all. No health issues. I mean, he LOOKS happy...

I would try the throw rugs or runners and just keep an eye on him for a bit to see if it helps. maybe even call the vet and talk to them about it. best wishes to you and your bun

Also, I live in Ireland

It's practically winter all year lol.

He's currently stretched out on his rug, he does stretch out. I'm certain there's no health issues, he's just back from his op a week ago.

He sounds pretty relaxed. How old is he now?

He's a year and a half now. I caught him chewing the wall and went over to give out to him. He ran off binkying! I think he's just a brat!!

Haha, since he is over a year, he may just have calmed down. That is what my Chacha bun did. She is pretty much laid back, but demanding (butt nudging, thumping at me, etc). She still does her nightly runs, but mostly likes to laze around the entire day.

D'awww, probably! I also reckon this little mite issue he might (no pun intended!) have isn't helping.

I bought these really inexpensive (what I call) waffle flooring. i found it in the pool section at Target (i saw pictures of them on here) for Dizzie as, i have hardwood flooring in her room. She really likes them, they are easy to clean and i havent had issues with her chewing them. check out the bunny room picutes they have on this site...
