If you do catch the "quick" and it bleeds then cornflour is excellent for stopping the bleeding

yes I believe it is, possibly why my daughter gets mad with me trying to give the rabbit some of my mars bar as a treat :) I thought all animals liked chocolate.

Ours has eaten all our wires as well, no idea how they don't get shocked.


I know oO , but i got a major shock when i plugged in the hoover and touched the bare wires that the toothy little swine must have nibbled at earlier

I am the same with my hens.

They peck at the window so I let them have a scratch of the mat.

Try to keep the rabbit in one room away from anything electrical.

Easier said than done though , as every single room in the house has eletctrical cables , apart from the bathroom and he is not allowed in there as that is the only room he will deposit LOADS of' currants' for some reason ,( right room i know , but not impressed X))

Our rabbit is toilet trained, wouldn't be a good house rabbit if he wasn't would he. Hops over to the toilet when he needs it, scratches at the door to the room if it's shut.

oO........on the toilet :D.........got some strange visions now , lol, ,,,ours is trained and will not go anywhere else but a certain place in the garden ( corner of decking , Nice !! ) doesnt do it anywhere else in the house BUT if gets the oppertunity to get in bathroom he will , right by toilet ( is he trying to tell me something do you think , lol )

No, he has a plastic one with cat litter in it. He can't just roam into the garden, has to go out in his run. The garden's too big so he'd either escape, get got by a cat or fox or even if he stayed in the garden it's too big to be able to find/catch him.


Cats dont seem to bother ours tbh and vice versa , plus Rooney , ( sad name i know , but kids named him with my dad being a man u supporter ) has a two storey wendy house in the garden that he has the run of .

I think I will get my friend to train his cat's he would save a fortune on cat litter

My hens would definitely not be trained.

yeh saves me a fortune too.... tho the only time she wont go is if I havent noticed the downstairs loo is full... so shell leave me a pressie elsewhere... so I keep a tray out by the toilet just in case.

She prefers the toilet and will use that if its empty....

What was the question again? guinea pig toilet training????


no guinea pig nail chopping... thats it..... almost forgot cant think why :p
