Things you need for a Bunny
Below is a list of things that you really need to think about having in order to own a House Bunny

Containing food bowl, water bottle, litter tray, hay, toys, sawdust on the floor of the home.

Try and buy the biggest that you accomodate within your home.


Essential for trips to the vet, but is left out for Rodney to rest in so that he doesn't always associate the carrier with nasty things like trips to the vets, (no offence Mr. Vet).

Space to Play

Try to allocate some areas as Bunny place space. I admit that this all looks a mess, but is purely superficial and can be easily tided away should any guests visit (!)

Space to Play

Try and make the play areas somewhere where you are frequently going to be e.g. living room.

Dustpan and Brush

Are essential. A Bunny can get used to vacuum but I only use mine when absolutely necessary (i.e. For Rabbit hairs). I prefer to use a Dustpan and Brush to clear out the cage and the surrounding area.

Bin Liners

You'll need plenty of these for clearing out the Litter Tray. I clear Rodney's every other day, and boy does it need it! We put the contents of the Home and the litter tray on the compost heap!


You'll get through loads! I put a layer of hay on the litter tray, just to cushion his bum (!), and a fresh pile of hay every other day.


The above brand is a wood based litter, and to date there have been no ill effects. It doesn't look like Rodney is eating any of it - that maybe due to the layer of Hay over the top of the litter itself. I find this a good and absorbant brand.

Kitchen Towel

A must at cleaning out sessions. You may think that your Rabbit is using the Litter tray with no problems - but as I found, they like to hang their bums over the edge at any opportunity.

Litter Tray

When.selecting a litter tray, here's a tip.

When I bought Rodney, the Petshop picked up a small cat litter tray and said it will be fine. What he didn't tell me was that Bunnies like to hang their bums over the edge, so I ended up buying a litter tray that fitted the depth of the cage. That way Rodney's bum is well within the boundries of the litter tray and there are no messy clean ups underneath the litter tray!


A brush is useful to help cut down on the Bunny suffering from Furball blackages within their digestive system. It also a natural progression for bonding with your Bunny by helping to groom them.


You needn't spend a fortune on toys for your Bunny. Rodney's favourite toys are toilet rolls and empty boxes. I even leave him my junk mail to nibble on (once i've checked it for staples). Newspapers and magazines are good, favourites are the little magazines you get in the sunday papers from "Innovations" or "Kays catalogue"! The Sunday Times has never been so well read!


Obviously! But I've found it good to use pellets, then you know your Bunny is getting a balanaced diet. I read that with Rabbit mix your Bunny could potentially only eat their favourite bits and therefore not get a balanced diet.

From 4 months onwards I introduced Rodney to vegetables. From books and the web I have built up a little list of vegetables suitable for a Bunny. Some of it will be down to personal Bunny taste!


This is recommended for use on bites and skin complaints when there is no sign of infestation by mites or fleas.

Apply a thin layer to the skin. Allow to dry (where possible) before allowing the bunny to return to the company of other rabbits.


As with Humans, this is to be used on Dry Skin areas on the bunny. Apply only a thin layer.





Quick Tips


Wicker balls and rings make great toys for rabbits and keep their teeth in good shape.

Make sure you provide plenty of fibre in your bunny's diet. Always have hay available and keep pellets or mix to a minimum. Rabbits love fresh greens too!



Does your cage have a front door like this. Do not let your bunny use this front "door". Many a bunny has seriously injured its leg in the bars.

If you have to use this door, cover the bars with wood or Instead buy a side opening cage and make a ramp if necessary.
