      I’m not sure what you mean by throwing the bowl, but my rabbit tipped his food bowl over if there were something inside he didn’t like ?. I bought him a bowl thingie that attaches to the wall of his cage or pen and he can nudge it, but nit spill its contents. You can also put hay into the back of the feeder. I would suggest getting him or her a bowl he or she can’t throw or spill because you can always stop your bunny from doing it when you’re there, but as soon as you leave, the rabbit will do what you don’t want it to do:-).

      Bunnies like to chuck things for fun!! My bunnies like to play with baby stacking cups or baby keys. Anything lightweight enough to throw around is amusing, so it could be that she is just playing

      Probably for a fun game?

      Your bun has been watching the food-fight scene in “Animal House” too many times. All kidding aside, I agree with the others – she’s almost certainly just in a playful mood. You can always try getting her a different toy that’s more, ahem, suitable for throwing and see if she’ll toss that around instead.

      My Olly used to do this, its Frisbee time, amusing to bunny, annoying to humans, anything that is empty, makes a noise against cage bars is great fun especially at 3:00 in the morning.

      I’ve had a full litter tray thrown at me.

      It’s not always a fun thing.

      Wick does it because he wants food in the most direct way possible. He doesn’t like needing to move his head around and in a bowl, so he throws it to get it. I serve food in heavy bowls now, and he still tries to throw it, if anything to rearrange the food inside so he doesn’t have to move…. Weirdo.

      … He thinks doing it helps his eating mission haha.

      In my experience, my bun does not like most “bunny toys” … she likes baby toys, and I know others whose buns like them as well
