How to take care of rabbits?
May 11, 2009 6:16am CST
Recently one of our Korean friend gave us two rabbits as pet. The kids love to play and feed them with veggies and rabbit foods. Sometimes they brought it inside the house to frolick because we don't have some garden space for them to run to. My children will say to me, it's good for them to have some exercise which i don't mind unless, they will make some mess in the living room. My problem now is- how to take proper care for them - what do i do with their fur, sometimes it becomes messy - with dirts clinging to it in spite that we do brush them. what about theeir nails? its growing too long for comfort - one time i cut them and it bleds , i know that it hurts - how to cut them? Another thing is - they are sexually active but both of them were males...and sometimes it becomes a messy business. I have been thinking of making them into rabbit stew, hehehe.. but pet lovers will murder me for that! lol! Is there anyone there who were kinda of expert on animal care? do share your ideas.. love to hear from you.

Two males together usually fight, so you might have to end up keeping them seperate. Most important is to make sure their homes are kept clean, it's very bad for them to have to sit in their own poo. If they run about a lot on hard surfaces like concrete, that will keep their nails short, but if you do have to cut them you have to clip just at the ends otherwise you will cut a nerve. I know some people keep rabbits indoors and have them running around all the time, and somehow manage to toilet train them to use a litter tray! I never managed that with mine, I just had to go around after them with a dustpan and brush.
