Rabbit Life Hacks: Ten Useful And Easy Life Hacks For Bunny Owners
While Rabbits are
amongst the Small animal category in Pets, Rabbit owners are often amazed at
how much fun and joy their pet Bunnies could bring them, and the never-ending
life lessons they provide through a rewarding Pet ownership. These experiences
are valuable sources of tips to share around, so fellow Rabbit owners can take
heed too ☺
Did you know that Rabbits are one
of the top most abandoned Pets in Singapore?
These tiny fluffy
butts and twitchy noses are also victims of impulse buys, and often wind up
getting abandoned, only after humans realise that these Buns actually require
much more responsibilities than they’d imagine! So before you judge them by
their sizes and fall swooning over their furry cuteness, please do your research
and be absolutely prepared for all the commitments to come. With that said,
Rabbit ownership is enjoyed by many around the world, and here are 10 useful
tips and tricks to make life for you and your Bun just a tad more breezy!
Life Hacks For Rabbit Owners
1. Keeping A Rabbit Cool —
It’s important to
keep our Pets cool and hydrated in a scorching weather, and even more so for
our Bun friends, as they are actually much more susceptible to heat. Freeze bottles of water and tuck them in the cage beside your Rabbits. Catch them laze in absolute serenity ☺
Swap out the bottles once the ice has melted!
2. Frozen Treats —
Bun pals can enjoy a frozen treat too when the heat is just too unbearable. Pop
some fruit or veggie bits into an ice tray or silicon moulds, fill it with water, and freeze! When done, break out the treat cubes and feed it to them. A cooling dose of water and fun time getting to a tasty snack, talk about killing two birds with one stone.
3. Stop Pissing There! —
One of the
most effective cleaning solution as recommended by Rabbit owners happens to be
White vinegar. White vinegar blocks out the urine stench and prevents your Bun from going back to piss in the same spot! Combining it with a little
Baking Soda can also help remove stains. Just be sure not to leave behind any
baking soda residue.
We can’t express how impressed by how this combination works all
the time, even with simple household cleaning, and now even Rabbit litter training? Take all our money!
4. Recycling Old Toilet Rolls —
are a Rabbit owner, toilet rolls should be your next best friend. Recycle all
of them if you can, and turn them into fun toys for your Buns! Toilet rolls
work great as treat or hay stuffers
, and doubles up as a scratch/chew toy when
they try to get to their hay treats! When they are shredded up, simply change them out with new ones ☺
Tip: You can get longer rolls from kitchen paper towels.
5. Resting Those Feet —
Many Rabbit owners are taking to using a fence structure as an enclosure instead of cages now. While that eases a Bun's hocks and provides a large space, things may get messy even with these fastidious creatures. You could make cleaning up easier by laying a flat rubber mat as a base, to catch spillage of hay or waste. Waterproof— for easy washing, and anti-slip so the space doesn’t budge from all the hopping!
6. Line The Tray —
keep their Rabbit’s litter boxes lined with special liners, which can be quite
costly in the long run but extremely useful. When you run out of liners, a quick alternative you could grab for are newspapers! Liners serve as a protective layer in litter trays so you don’t get nasty urine stains and better odour control. Plus, it makes cleaning a whole lot faster too!
7. Maximize Litter —
As part of
eliminating odour and keeping the litter tray clean and dry, most Rabbit owners
also include litter on top of liners. However most Rabbit litter packs are too
small for what it’s worth. Get Cat litter instead
, they come in much larger packaging, but be sure to pick a scent free, paper-based litter. Also, avoid clumping litter at all costs, as these clumps can be potential choking hazards for your Buns!
8. Protect Your Cables —
cords, cables and wires out of reach! Though at some times, that cannot be
helped. Well for the safety of your Buns and your cables, get protective casings that will deter your Rabbits from having a chomping festival with dangerous “toys
”. Don’t forget, chewing is something your Buns can’t help doing!
9. Grow A Patch —
We may not
be able to grow vegetable from our apartments here in Singapore, but we could
most definitely get our hands on some grass seeds. Grow a small patch for your
Buns to lounge in, knowing that it is absolutely safe and toxic free. Rabbit owners have reported occasional munching too! Use this grass patch for playtime, and supervise their intake closely. Try growing wheat grass, timothy grass
or oat grass
10. Getting Rid Of Fur —
ol’ hair of our Furkids. If you are a Pet owner and you have not invested in a
Pet hair vacuum, you sure are patient! Some other ways of ridding hair and fur
includes hand sweeping with rubber gloves on fabrics, lint rollers, or using a curry brush.
fastest and most efficient cleaning has got to be a vacuum! Again, Rabbits are
smaller than Dogs and Cats, but that does not mean their fur shedding is any
lesser (you’d be surprised
). Here are some vacuum recommendations from us and
fellow Pet owners!
