1/4 cup rabbit pellets, ground finely in a coffee grinder
1/4 cup ground oats, ground finely in a coffee grinder
1 small carrot, pureed
1 tablespoon honey
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mash the banana half until it becomes very smooth. Add the pureed carrot and honey. Stir in the pellet powder and oats and mix until the mixture is well blended. Knead mixture with your hands for 2 minutes.
Roll mixture into a 1/8- or 1/4- inch thick layer between sheets of plastic wrap. Cut up the dough into 3/4-inch cookies, or use small cookie cutters.
Place cookies on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes (do not let them get too brown). Turn off the oven and let the cookies sit in there for 30 minutes. Then allow the cookies to cool before feeding them to your bunny.
Toys for Rabbits
Rabbits are fun-loving, sometimes even silly creatures, and they love to play. Moreover, exercise is essential to keeping your rabbit in good health.
Giving your rabbit the right toys can make all the difference. Here are some great options, many of which are free or very inexpensive, and all of which your rabbit will really enjoy!
* Cardboard tubes from toilet paper and paper towel rolls
* Paper bags (lunch bags or from a grocery store)
* Cardboard boxes (especially a closed box with two or three rabbit sized entrance holes cut in the sides)
* Concrete forms or large PVC pipes for tunnels (make sure bunny can not get stuck!)
* Untreated wicker baskets or other wicker items (wicker tunnels and other items are available from the online stores listed below in the Resources section of this report)
* Hard plastic cat balls with bells inside (just make sure your bunny isn't chewing up and swallowing the plastic)
* Hard plastic baby toys rings, links, keys, rattles, etc.
* Parrot toys and bells
* Kitty condos (the shorter ones), tunnels, and platforms
* Towels or blankets
* Small straw whisk broom
* Straw balls ( you can get the ones meant as hamster houses;for added enjoyment, fill them with timothy hay)
* A cardboard box full of shredded paper (preferably ink-free; you can sometimes get unprinted newsprint roll ends from the local newspaper printer)
* Fresh branches from apple trees
* Dried pinecones
* Large rubber ball
* Old books or phone books
* Plush bunny for your rabbit to groom
* A paper bag or box (e.g., a cereal box or any other type of small box) filled with hay
* Piece of wood for chewing
* A safe container (an empty plastic butter bowl, for example) with something inside to make it rattle
* Rolled up newspaper, crumpled up paper grocery bags
* Untreated grass mats
All of these options will give your bunny hours or healthy playtime and exercise. Best of all, most of them can be found or made from materials in your own home, right at this very moment. So go gather up a couple of toys and give your bunny a present he will love!
