Today’s post is in honor of the little girl bunny pictured above who recently showed up in a friend’s garden. After several days, they were able to trap her and, though they put out ads for her, her owners haven’t claimed her. I wonder if she was someone’s Easter bunny who got dumped. Boo! She’s has a wonderful home now though—Margaret has already started clicker-training her. Yea!
It’s really important to provide your rabbits with physical and mental stimulation. They like to explore & play and providing toys is a great way to keep them occupied & happy. It gives your bunny appropriate outlets for chewing, digging, shredding, etc. and helps prevent destructive behavior.
Check out this totally kickass post on making your own rabbit toys! There are a bazillion ideas for entertaining & safe toys for your bunnies—most DIY and low-cost. (Note: it looks like the links to Amazon are affiliate links, but the author did put a lot of effort into gathering good info.)
