What S&L said. He’s feeling overwhelmed. He’s gone from a place he was raised and felt safe in, to a new place and a vet visit, and back to a large, wide open space he’s not sure of and doesn’t trust.
My suggestion? Go back to basics. Give him a smaller, more personal space he can “claim” as his own (and treats), and feel safe and…[Read more]
My Clover and Dawn play with our cats all the time. What you’re describing is normal. The only thing I’d caution you about is that kittens don’t always mind how rough they can be with their claws, so always monitor their playtime. Accidents happen. But sound like they’re buds. Post pics, we love seeing Flemmies and their buddies!
I’m an atheist, and make no bones about it. I’m also a very practically minded person. Having said that, everyone here knows how special Clover was, and how wonderful our bond was. She was one of a kind. The grief never goes away, but like an open wound, it eventually heals up and leaves a scar as a reminder. What’s important is to not see…[Read more]
I haven’t been posting much of late, because well, without Clover it’s hard. And lately all I seem able to see is sad stories.
That said, I love this place and all in it. You folks (And the hoomans you’ve enslaved), are my daily inspiration. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and the new year is brighter than the last…[Read more]
Unfortunately no. Fleas have gotten much harder to kill, and once you’ve got an infestation, it’s hell to get rid of. Advantage II doesn’t hurt them, and works VERY well.
I tried the natural route, and as a result, I’m still struggling with them. Bite the bullet and nuke the little buggers from orbit.
Get yourself a flea comb and start combing, after applying a dose of Advantage II for kittens. Comb every other day to take away any fleas still living, and continue until your bunny is flea free. DO NOT slack up on combing and treating with Advantage II for at least 3 months. If you let them get entrenched, fleas are a nightmare to get rid…[Read more]
As far as the Papaya treat goes, Papaya enzymes are supposed to help rabbits break down and pass the fur that accumulates in their gut from grooming. We give our dwarf Dawn Papaya and pineapple as treats, but they’ve also helped with her Cecal Dysbiosis. Keeping a good gut biome is essential for healthy bun buns. As long as it’s not an…[Read more]
It all went VERY well. I did tell them her full name, and they were all, “Aww, she’s so tiny and cute and adorable!” And then she lunged for the tech, boxing and grunting and scared the crap out of her. Clipping her nails (With me holding her) took only second without so much as a hint of blood.
BONUS!!! Whilst discussing my pets with…[Read more]
Yep, large plastic storage tubs are the way to go. I get 40# (18 kg) compressed bales, cut the straps off and store it in a huge plastic bin. Keeps it fresh and easily accessible. Course, when Clover was alive, I had to keep taking her OUT of the bin when I opened up to add new hay, because she preferred to do her own shopping….
Clover and Pyewacket were best buds. Clover would find Pye when she was on the floor and start grooming Pye, who would return the favor. Then they’d snuggle up together for naps. Never got a picture of it, sadly, because everytime I reached for my phone Pyw would move.
We require pictures! (Giant bunny fan here.) Clover was, at 14 lbs, on the large size for a Chin. We suspected she maybe had some Giant chin mixed in. Bossy? Oh my yes she was. Queen of the house and not afraid to let you know it. She was a gentle tyrant though. On the infrequent times someone knocked on our door, she’d hope up on the…[Read more]
We had a flea infestation a while back. I used Advantage II for cats for long term protection, and the Advantage spray for immediate relief. Got it from Chewy.com https://www.chewy.com/advantage-flea-treatment-spray-cats-8/dp/139688 I have to tell you, this spray works GREAT. Kills fleas instantly, and not just where the spray landed…[Read more]
