How long can you leave a rabbit alone?

Post by scGra » Thu, 15 Jan 2004 11:19:04



Rob ... We do the same thing, leave the radio on for BB and Cissy. I
feel that, since they are so accustomed to the noise of the TV or us
talking, it will help them feel not so alone when we need to be out.
So far we haven't had to be away over night when they were home, but
that may be necessary at some time.

Maybe you do have a psychic rabbit :-) ... Seriously, I think they
hear things that are not in our hearing range and maybe he heard a
crackle or something before the power went out. My BB sometimes thumps
for no apparent reason, but I'm sure he knows why. I just wish he
could tell me <g>

 We do leave the radio on for him though.  I think it drowns out
noises that may otherwise spur some anxiety on his part.  Speeking of
anxiety... the other day Max did something Ive never seen him do
before.  He was making small little "Thumps" with his back feet.  Then
the power went out.  I have a magic rabbit.  (or is he psychic?  do de
do dooooo...)

You noticed that too, eh?

If you hang around for a while longer you'll just start ignoring a
bunch of people, maybe killfile one or two, and settle in with the
folks worth talking to.

Jessie and Quark's foster parents live across the street, so help would be
there as soon as they knew something was wrong.  That is why I don't give
the rabbits a 2-week supply of food ;)

It sure sounds like you have everything under control Anita ... You
have all the necessary precautions in place and Jessie and Quark have
each other for company. Sometimes I think BB and Cissy wouldn't even
miss us until it was treat time ;-) they do a wonderful job of
entertaining themselves.

Well, sometimes. The group dynamics change from time to time. I think we
might be a bit on edge right now.

Could be some of the emotions that get out of hand from time to time
(and affect the whole group), or possibly too much sugar at Christmas.

Yep, he's got to be psychic! He's going to be great if you ever have an
earthquake on the way.

Most rabbits are psychic & magic.....  Then again, I'm a
Magician, and tend to believe that stuff. ;)

Tipping is not the same as when a rabbit deliberately moves and/or picks up
his(her) water dish and tosses it.  If it's heavy enough that the rabbit can't
do it, then it's also probably large enough to be an annoyance and they will
try....

This is something that I am very aware of as a single person and one of the
reasons why my bunnys are out side in hutchs.
My imediate neighbour is a retired lady who takes great delight in feeding
Toffee having seen the codition that he was in when he arived here, and so I
supply her with his food :)
On the occasions that I have had to leave a bunny in doors while at work it is
a major worry while going to, being at, and coming home from work.
With my bunnys outside in their hutchs they are accessable by someone who while
lacking the finer points of bunny care does have feed for them, knows their
medical history, and knows what to do for them if I get hit by a truck.

What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?

Is there another word for synonym?
