    So true....well they might taste nice in soup, who knows hahaha

    Remind me never to eat at your gaff http://smilies.blazemint.com/s/cwm/3dlil/puke.gif

    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))

    Im lmao at that ^^^^ (sorry) x

    lol, its so true, if he ever manages to get in the bathroom ( we try and keep door shut now ) he deposits about 200 currants right by the toilet oO......and as mad as i am clearing them up i have visions of this white fluffy ass trying to get on the toilet seat X)

    I think he is... train him bet youll find he picks it up.

    I trained my cat it only took a week, she cant flush it tho.... would be great if she could lol

    No, he has a plastic one with cat litter in it. He can't just roam into … 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 .

    lol, still trying to get my 6yr old son to do this

    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

    our first rabbit was killed by a cat, it got in his run & clawed him just under the neck, it was my son's & he was a lovely black & white rabbit, Honey is our daughters & female rabbit, say no more she is house trained & only uses her litter tray, the rabbit that is, not my daughter !
