Timing Bunny's Outdoor Playtime in the Spring to Summer
While spring is still in the air throughout most of the northern hemisphere, temperatures are on the rise and bunnies left outside or given their "outside play time" are at great risk of heat stroke.
Please remember any temperature over 80-85 degrees can be deadly to rabbits so if it's warming up where you are, take bunny outside in the early morning hours for his or her supervised outside time.
Once the thermometer hits 80 degrees coupled with the warm spring sun, tragedy can strike within minutes dependent upon the breed, color and age of your bunny.
Indoor play time can be just as satisfying for your bun so make some great cardboard houses, find some seagrass mats for bun to chew and dig on and spend time on the floor with your bun and a variety of toys to keep him or her entertained and you two bonded. It's never worth the risk to expose your bunny to warm temperatures so take precautions and move the party inside this time of year. Bun will thank you for it!

Apparently this guy has just started his. LOL)
Welcome to our page! We do our best to provide to-be and current bunny owners up-to-date info on the best care for their house rabbits. When we adopted our first bunny in 2005, there was almost nothing on the internet to tell us how to care for him. Just in the past few years, information has exploded online, and now it can be confusing! We try to simplify it by posting weekly articles on current issues, daily care, concerns, proper feeding, and other info so you can enjoy your house-bun! If you are just finding us, feel free to look through the older posts also. Please email us if you have any questions! Happy bunnies make happy hearts!
