Never had a bunny, but I do like watching Bugs Bunny.

Enter it into a bunny hop. Big Grin

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,

RE: Found a pet bunny - anyone w/ bunny experience?
If the neighbor doesn't come looking for it then they don't give a damn.

If you keep it long term then you'll want rabbit food that has balanced nutrients, fiber, etc. For the short term fresh veg will do. They'll eat most vegetables (and many fruit) in a pinch but prefer some over others. I had a rabbit that thought its name was "celery". It would eat carrots but with no more enthuiasm than anything else. Celery vanished at an alarming speed. Dandelions too, though those likely aren't in season. We had the neatest lawn. Not a single damned yellow poison poppy in sight (allergies suck).

As others have mentioned, they chew. Everything. Including plywood and chicken wire. They have to or their teeth get overgrown so ask your vet about bunny chew toys. They also dig and they do it quickly, so if you keep them outside do not rely on well-buried chicken wire to keep them in as my father did to the sorrow of his garden.

They are a prey species so when frightened they run and hide, typically under furniture. If it's out and about then it's unconcerned and likely wants your attention. A scratch behind the ears is always welcome. Avoid sudden motions.

If your neighbors ask to keep their "boy" bunny with your boy bunny the answer is no, unless you want lots more bunnies.

They're called "rabbit pellets" --- and no -- they don't come from Purina.......

My sister had a bad temper and we had a bunny drop dead when she threw a temper tantrum and slammed a door.

RE: Found a pet bunny - anyone w/ bunny experience?
A few years ago a mama bunny had her babies in our back yard...we didn't know it until our dog caught and killed one. The momma hauled out of here. We caught three of the bunnies and put them in a cage we had along with some litter I picked up at the pet store. I also got some pellets. But we had no plans to keep them. A dish of water and some fresh greens from the yard every day and they seemed to be happy and growing well. We handled them little. They doubled in size and we drove then up to a park by the lake. When we pulled in we saw other bunnies along the wood line. We opened the crate and they happily hopped off into the woods. I hope they did okay.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
