My rabbit died at the weekend, new rabbit purchased.


Recommended Posts

Don't mind me asking. Why did you choose a rabbit instead of a dog like most people?

 

Does a rabbit need less maintenance than a dog?

 

What happens when an intruder cat meet your rabbit in your yard?

Sorry to hear about your loss. We also lost my niece's pet rabbit to a snake last week in Phuket. A little bit more than a bite as the bad girl Python swallowed it. Quite a scary beast to appear in the garden:

Rabbits only need a service once a year or 10,000km, whichever comes first.

Took my Thai rabbit in for a health check after the white rabbit died.

Had visions of a terrible disease running through them all.

50bht at the vets, verdict perfectly healthy.

We have one cat at home and another in the wife's shop to discourage rats. Furniture and shop stock suffers from their scratching. We'd rather not have to keep either. Would a rabbit be of use against rats?

The last rat I saw in my home was this weekend - drinking out of the cat's water bowl.  It must have been poisoned elsewhere as it expired a couple of hours later.  The cat's too busy sucking up attention to be of any use.  The dogs are good ratters so I'm surprised this got into the house.

Only if the rabbit can set up a glue trap.

They don't attack people.

They don't bark and howl.

They don't leave dog $hite all over the place.

They don't hump visitors' legs.

 

<deleted> with intruders though.....

I like it! Twice a previous shop cat got covered in glue with rubbish and old newspapers stuck to it. We used cooking oil to soften the glue and shampoo to remove the glue/oil mess. Fortunately that particular cat didn't mind soap and water. Shortly after the second occasion it must have eaten poisoned bait and soon died.

Very unusual as rats will, invariably, run a mile from the odour of a cat.
