    Bunny Question

    So you have seen my thread/rant about my daughter's upcoming bunny acquisition. Santa has also arranged to have it at a nearby bunny rescue, how nice! Anywho, It will be housebroken and free range (in our house) but sleep at night in it's cage at the foot of my daughter's bed. At what temperature should her room or cage be at night? We keep the kids rooms between 62-65. Does the bunny need supplemental heat? Any other advice is welcome. We have had rabbits before (Rabi Foo Foo) but it has been a few years and I was not that involved but am in the middle of it now. Thanks

    Donít hate me but I use to do a lot of rabbit hunting in my younger days. They are one of the most resilient to anything little critters Iíve ever seen. Iím sure a cozy little spot to sleep in some hay and your normal house temp is fine.

    62-65 will have to change when you get your snakes! Lol when my room temp drops to 68, the cold end of my rack is at 73 and thatís with 12 inch heat tape.

    I think the temps are fine for a bunny...I've seen them being raised in outside cages where it snows. They've got great fur...but I'm sure the 'rescue' folks
    can fill you in more. I've only had a temporary guest (abandoned-rescued) rabbit for a short time...my dogs went nuts, lol, & he was welcomed as a shared
    pet in a convalescent hospital.

    When I was younger my gram had ďpet rabbitsĒ for me that we raised in outside cages. Never did understand how those big rabbits always escaped and ran away, but the smaller ones never did.

    And there always seemed to be an abundance of rabbit stew?

    OK, just checked. It's 59 in said room. Is that moving in the right direction?
