About Us!

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!

Litter Screen: 

This screen sits directly on litter. It is not a raised type of screen --- please see the video to see how it works. Check out our Product Feature video about the Litter Screen on YouTube
We created this for our own bunnies many years ago, and it's still in great shape. It saved us money on litter and kept our bunnies feet clean, so now we've decided to share what's worked for us, with you! 
As we all know rabbits like to get into their box not only to do their "business" but to also hang out and eat hay. They will get in and out many times throughout one 24 hour period. By doing this, the unused litter gets mixed with the urine soaked litter, poos and hay pieces, making it difficult to scoop the bad without wasting alot of the good.  With the screen, it allows the urine to soak through into a nice neat confined area which is easy to scoop up, and the poos sit on top of the screen, making them easy to throwout, while preserving the litter below.
NOTE: If you use sheets of paper or shredded paper for litter, this screen will not work well with it. -- Needs to be an absorbent litter like compressed pellets of paper or wood. 
Plus, the fact that it is so easy to just lift the screen and dump the poos daily makes it a cleaner place for your bunnies to hang out in. And if your bunny is a "digger" and loves to make a mess of his habitat, then this is the perfect solution.
When you put hay in the box like we do, the screen makes it even that much easier to separate it all and then just scoop out the soaked litter spots.

The galvanized metal handles acidic aspect of urine very well, and the tightly woven mesh screen makes it easier on bunnies sensitive hocks.

We've had the same litter box screen for over five years now and it's going strong--and with no less than two bunnies at one time it gets alot of action!  Plus, it has held up very well against our scrub brushes and soaking when needed.  

Cautionary Note: IF you have a larger bunny, a rex breed, or a bunny that likes to hang out in the litterbox, then we advise you to put a a little hay over the screen (as we did in the video) so that your bunnies feet are fully protected.
