     If you can't here's a very humane way (which is arguably more humane than the euthanasia shot)



    Its called a CO2 (carbon dioxide) chamber. take a small, airtight box or bowl, a small cup with a good bit of baking soda and another cup of vinegar. say goodbye to your rat, and put him in the box. put the cup in as well, and pour in the vinegar. shut the box tightly, and leave it alone for 20-30 minutes. then remove the lid and bury your rat

My little hotot (Pancakes) does not ever want to be held or picked up. Is this normal?

    Generally when a rabbit matures and hormones start kicking in they become stand offish or irritable, maybe even showing aggressive tendancies. One way to help resolve this issue would be to have your rabbit spayed or neutered (it takes alot of research to find a good rabbit vet in most locations that will do a spay/neuter and especially at a reasonable price so check your local shelter or rabbit rescues for recommendations). The other possibility is that your rabbit has issues with the way its being handled or it feels that its personal space (generally being its cage or litter box) is being encroached upon by humans or other animals. Researching rabbit behavior and learning to read your rabbits "body language", modifying your behavior and adjusting things around your home to appease your rabbit will better your relationship. Also, does your rabbit have an ample supply of toys to help de-stress? Rabbits may stress over minor daily activities like humans or animals coming in and out of the home or being noisey and they simply need something to preoccupy their minds with and play is just a great source of relaxation for a rabbit. Make sure your rabbit has plenty of toys and boxes to dig around in that are its personal "things" and not used by other animals (or humans). Good luck!

    No this is not normal it is probably because it wasn't handled from a young age which can result in that. There are other reasons look it up I bet you'll find something!

    I just adopted a hotot and I've taked him out of his cage but he just hops back in. Should i be worried? I leave the cage open hoping he would come out. He leans out but doesn't come out

Hi, I had a black and white dutch and he was the most friendly rabbit that I have ever met. He was very social and loved people and our dog very much. If you ever want a pet rabbit, definitely choose a dutch rabbit, a male if you can. They are much more friendly than the females. Mine lived to be 10 years old. They make fantastic pets!!

hiya there. I have a light brown dutch rabbit ans she is so cute. She always licks me and my family and she licks my dads socks. She is so so so sweet. Her name is lady short for marmelade. She runs around my garden and when i come in from school she runs up to sniff me. Also, when my dad is in the garden gardening, Lady follows him around and once my dad was looking at what he had to do next and lady was sitting next to him looking as well and it was so so so so so cute.
She has a black stripe going across her back, shes very different from the other dutch rabbits. She loves everyone!

    If it is a baby than it is young and why don't you think of a name that isn't gender specific. List a bunch of names and then say them and name your little furry one the name it responds to.
    Names like Billie, Cory, Sam, Bobby, ..........

    Look at the belly. If there appears to be a bellybutton, it's a boy, and that's not a bellybutton lol. You can sometimes tell age by looking at the teeth. If they are small and not quite in yet (still teething) then he/she is likely under 12 weeks. I would take him/her to the vet for a checkup and to get updated on shots. I there are 2 dots tattooed in the ear, then he/she is already altered and desented and has had their first set of shots. The vet will also be able to give you an estimate on age to keep updated on shots if the ferret is old enough to need boosters.

I have a havana rabbit. He is the best thing that ever happened to me. He lives to be pet and loves kisses, but he also loves having his own alone time. I love him so much. His name is rhino. Because when I bought him they gave him to me in a box that had rhino on it. He is perfect and beautiful.

    I know this was written a few years ago and you probably already have what you were looking for. However, there is a great breeder who carries dwarf hotot bunnies in Gastonia, NC. www.hippityhoppartiesandmore.com We bought my daughter's hotot there and he's great!

    I believe a bunny can eat pretty much anything you eat as long as it is nutricious. A whole lot of sugar or salt isn't good. The rabbit pellets provide a nutricious diet and are geared to do that. If you wish than a few pieces of vegetable (obviously carrot) or maybe a little piece of fruit. These little guys only need 1/4 cup pellets a day but they will eat anything and everything so just don't overdoo it. They do love oats though so that is probably why they love the oatmeal. Just a little - they aren't very big.

    My rabbit has had a nibble of cliff bar(with no chocolate) and a frosted flake! She also likes our baseboards! I hope your rabbit doesn't like baseboards
