Daisy, glad to see you back, hope you had a ncie christmas! I am looking forward to receiving your piccies! And I will post them on the forum for you, and return them if you need them back, ok?


My mum wouldn't let me have a bunny when I lived at home, but now I am 27 I can have as many bunnies as I like!!!!!!:) :D
I didn't get my first rabbit till I was 25 and I probably appreciate them more now than I would have when I was say 13 or so. Your time will come!

Bunnies do not, as a rule, "stink".

What stinks is if they are unneutered, their urine has excess hormones which attract a bunny of the opposite sex to them. Getting a bunny spayed and neutered not only cuts the urine odor problem down but bunnies also tend to have reproductive cancers so the neutering takes that potential heartbreak away. Neutering/spaying will also calm a bunny down so that instead of being driven by his or her hormones they look to their caregiver for companionship....3 excellent reasons for neutering, not to mention aleviating the homeless/unwanted bunny problems.

The other reason why someone thinks a bunny might stink is that the litter box (!) is not being cleaned often enough. That is NOT the bunny's fault obviously.

The only other reason I can think of why someone would say a bunny stinks is that the bunny has been ill and unable to groom and clean himself up. Bunnies are usually very fastidious when it comes to keeping themselves clean. In fact if you watch a bunny, you will notice that they repeatedly do 4 things over and over and over.....eat, play, groom and, once in a great while, you might catch them sleeping.

I would not hesitate to keep a bunny inside, where their chances of living a long, healthy life improve dramaticlly over those kept outside. In fact you will note from my signature that I am a little over the top and currently have 8 bunnies, all living inside (I work with a rabbit rescue group and have a hard time saying no). I truly feel the major trick is to keep the litter boxes clean....in summer with the heat and humidity high I will change litter boxes twice a day. I may not be little Suzy Homemaker but neither do I want a stinky house. So it IS possible to live happily with bunnies indoors. I hope you have found this info helpful.
