Snowy - My Mini-Lop Bunny Growing Up Fat & Fluffy :)


Snowy - My Mini-Lop Bunny Growing Up Fat & Fluffy - Snowy has been increasing in size and growing up bigger day by day. I guess I have been feeding it well with sufficient rabbit pellets, oat hay and fresh green vegetables that include mint leaves, bok choy, beans etc. Sometimes I also feed Snowy small portions of carrots, bananas, pears and pineapple as they contain high levels of sugar.


I also realized that Snowy sleeps with his eyes closed and he usually sleeps more in the day. When he sleeps, he curls up like a "Fur Ball" and looks super cute! He is extremely active at night, trying to climb all over the place and following me around the house closely.


When Snowy smells something fishy, he stands up to sniff the air as a sign of inquisitiveness. It's amazing how long he can stand on his feet. Almost like a human!


The first time I saw Snowy lying down flat on the ground, I panicked and started asking everyone what I should do! I thought Snowy was sick or not feeling well, but after searching online for answers, I found out that bunnies only lie down flat on the ground when they feel extremely safe and comfortable. Snowy lies down in absolute bliss and relaxation! Snowy has big ears and he reminds me of Dumbo the Elephant :)




I have also been a really lucky "Bunnymama" as Snowy responds to his name. Whenever I call out "Snowy", he would listen and run towards me. He also enjoys being petted on his head and neck. Sometimes, he also licks me as a sign of love and affection. Snowy is a friendly and lovely bunny and is never aggressive. He does not bite me and loves to sit near me to enjoy my company beside him.



Litter Training - Just yesterday, the most amazing improvement is that Snowy runs to the toilet to poop and pee automatically despite the fact that he is allowed to roam freely around the house. I did not toilet train him and was surprised to see that he is able to make the right decisions himself. I have not even bought a litter tray. It makes cleaning up much easier and I think Snowy is naturally intelligent :) I really love Snowy as he has brought me great joy and happiness in a nondescript way.


If you are considering getting a pet, a bunny is highly recommended as they are timid, docile and loving creatures. They are not noisy and are easy to manage too! I'm one super happy Bunny owner :)


More information about how to keep a bunny can be found at these websites below:

A bunny does not make much noises and communicates based on their unique behavior. Based on the numerous Bunny Behavior explained, Snowy has showed Binkying and The Bunny 500. Snowy has been sprinting in fast speeds around the house in extreme excitement especially whenever I open his bag of food to feed it. It's such a delight to see Snowy being happy as it makes me happy too! A more detailed explanation can be found here http://www.myhouserabbit.com/tip_noises.php


Binkying

People unfamiliar to pet rabbits may not know that bunnies have a very dramatic way of expressing excitement and joy. They dance! Leaping in the air, contorting and twisting their bodies, and kicking their feet out, binkying rabbits are quite the spectacle. Sometimes rabbits lead up to a binky by taking a running start. Other times, a binky is a sudden burst to the side. What's really fun is when the binkies occur in succession, creating a grand acrobatic display. I'll submit that anyone who thinks rabbits are dull has not seen a bunny in the act of binkying

The Bunny 500

When rabbits zip around the room in a blur, they're performing Bunny 500s. Their bursts of speed are sometimes accompanied by fantastic binkies and demonstrate extreme excitement. Expect a Bunny 500 whenever you're about to give your bunny a treat.
