|I've not been feeling well these past few days...nothing really bad, but just a "blah" type feeling. Alvin has decided that he loves sleeping on a plastic bag. He's just over there rolling on it makes lots of crinkling noises. I took it away from him once because I didn't like the noise and I thought he was chewing on it(he wasn't). But he just made the saddest face ever, let out a few squeaky noises, and stood on his hind legs staring at me, and so I just *had* to let him have it back. So now he's rolling on it again. *sigh*
Bunny- The vet said the problem was mites. I think it's a combination of mites and sore hocks, though. The debate was new to me. I love rabbits(probably more so than dogs)and have always thought they were accepted amongst rabbit people as outdoor pet...but anyway. I did look at the pen setup again, and the person who posted it said it was only for the rabbits to play in, not a permanent outdoor pen. It did give me a great idea for the flooring, though. I was wondering how I could keep Alvin and future rabbits from digging out of the pen. I had to google Wendy houses, they're awesome!
I did some more googling and came across this:chicken coop rabbit hutch With some tweaking, such as making it wider and using the same flooring idea with deeper dirt so the bunnies can dig tunnels, I think I'd like it for my bunny(s).
Can't advise you on the Spoodle issue as I have a habit of taking on more than I can handle. It's tough though, having to ignore what you want in favor of what is best for now.
Dunlop- I think I would favor plywood over metal, for the same reasons you give!
Jewel- Good luck with the radio interview!
Flicka- How much dirt goes into any bunny pen depends on how much my dad wants to cart in! He really wants to build a turtle/koi pond and has been researching different sizes and such and I told him to dig out two holes of the same size and depth, one for the pond and one for my rabbit pen. That way the rabbit pen bottom
can be sealed with concrete and have dirt instead of water poured in, with grass sod placed on top. Voila! Dig-proof! My dad just shook his head and mumbled something about being made of money...
Roxy- Ouch! The hand sounds painful! Maybe you should have a pair of thick work gloves laying around just in case this happens again.
Hope everyone experiencing the blizzard or just too much snow and cold is doing well! I am now glad that I don't have to deal with snow for a few years!
