hi everyone, my name is jennifer, i live in nebraska, i am 32 years old. does anyone else live here? its very nice to meet you all i was searching some rabbit info on google and cam across this website. i just had to make an account! i have three purebred belgian hares, lucy, taffy and nutmeg. they are loose in the house 24/7. they have full run. what active rabbits lol. i see binkies constantly and races around the house too. it is so cute. i have had lucy for 7 years, taffy for 2 years and nutmeg for 1 week! as much as they are active though, they love to kick back and do some mutual grooming. both lucy and taffy are spayed, and nutmeg is getting spayed when she hits 5 months. they have a litterpan in each room, filled with yesterdays news and timothy hay. we go thourough a lot of litter (full run includes full run of all levels, which is upstairs and basement too)
we have a cat named meeko who is actually very good friends with the three bunnies. her calico fur looks good with them lol. sometimes she sleeps with them. meeko is getting very old(21 years) and i am afraid i am going to loose her this winter. she hasnt been doing so well lately .
everynight when the buns get tired they jump on my bed and sleep with me in a big bunny pile. which usually includes meeko
heres what they eat each day(they get fed once):
unlimited timothy hay(in litterpans)
1/2 cup pellets (for all three)
and 6 cups of collard, carrot tops, beet tops, radish, mint, basil, dill, cilantro, romaine, greenleaf, kholrabi, kale, red leaf, escarole, and endive.
sometimes they get a slice of apple(each) or 1/4 or a carrot(each). but thats just a few time a week for a treat.

lucy: 7 years old / 12 pounds
taffy: 2 years old / 13 pounds
nutmeg: 9 weeks old / 1.8 pounds.
