I noticed something new that my dwarf bunny does, and I have to say it worries me. My bunny was sitting in its cage and started vibrating/shaking and then fell over on its side in a laying down position. I want to know why my bunny started vibrating/shaking like that. Is my bunny sick or is that a way for it to cool itself if to hot? Please help.

    Does he get back up and act normally afterwards, or does he stay down? Sometimes rabbits will shake to help cool themselves off - so definitely make sure he is not in an area that has extreme temperatures during any part of the day (either too hot or too cold). If he doesn't get back, there's a possibility it is more than just the temperature and he may be sick. I would take him to the vet if this continues to happen and other signs show up - such as him not eating, etc.

    Yes, he did get back up afterwards, he laid there for a few seconds and his nose was still twitching so tha'ts how I knew he was okay. Could it be a seziure? I don't want to wake up one day and find my rabbit dead:( I tried looking it up on the web but nothing seemed to give me an answer. It just seemed like he was violently shaking...I dont know how else to explain it. He has already done this twice now.

    We had a Dutch that would occasionally have what appeared to be seizures, but generally when we had a Christmas tree in the house. He would go into some sort of a trance and roll over on his side or back. Whenever I saw this happening I would right him, and after a short time he seemed to be normal again. This happened when he was younger and not when he got older. We lost him around 10 years, after he developed bone cancer around 9 and 1/2. Never had this issue with our ND, who we had for 15 years after the Dutch.

    Try a whole bunch of names Timmy, Floppy, Sadie, Alex etc etc and see the one your furry floppy likes. They have a way of liking certain sounds - so just rattle off a bunch of names and pick the one your little one perks up the ears to or looks at you for. Then give her that name. Just an idea as worked for me.

    I just got one as well...I named mine I-Hop....

    Some other names thought of were... spaz for spastic or taz for tazmanian devil

    Enjoy the new bunny...I know I am!

    I don't know how to tell how old they are - no idea but if you go to and enter sexing a rabbit, there are images and descriptions of how you can determine the male from the female.

    They do growl. In most cases it is just a sound similar to a puppy playing. However, it can be an alert if he is moddy, not wanting to play or afraid of new people, which happens the more they bond with you. Have you read the article on Havana Rabbits on Animal World? There is some good insight there.

My bunny, Abby, is well natured and very friendly. A bunny is a blessing, especially Dutch. They have great personalities, and love people. They can eat and be messy, but they are made like that. They are great pets. If you have a bunny {Especially Dutch} you are an angel, and to your rabbit, you are a blessing.

    Recommended size of cage for 1 NZ is 30 X 36 and you have two. I built a cage 5 feet wide by 8 feet long and 5 feet high out of bird cage 8 guage wire. There was room for nesting places - I used dog houses and there was room for a litter. You can buy the wire precut from Morton with cage clips etc. I lived in Florida so mine were outside but off the ground and had a tin roof so they didn't get wet. It is easy.

    Always provide rabbits with the biggest space possible. They must also be given freedom of at least a portion of the garden at least for a specified time. The more natural, the better. Did you get your rabbits?

I have a Silver Martin who is about 2 years old now. Her name is Angie and she is such a sweetheart. When I first got her she bit me, but I didn't mind. Now she's an angel. We let her out of her cage and she hops out and hops on the couch to watch tv. I don't know what I would do without my angle. She was named after my aunt who died, so I know she's an angel. She also like SNOW! Believe it or not she loves it. She doesn't really like my other rabbit, thumper. They fight so they have to have different cages. But anyways, they are wonderful.
