Just wanted to say hi and introduce mybunny. His name is Scat and he is about a year old, I have had him for one week and so far over all things have been pretty good. I have had to reconfigure his pen a few times because he has been escaping, hopefully i can find an x pen either on craigslist or at yardsales this weekend. Right now he has a 40x18in cage inside a 4x3.5 pen made of a disasebled/re engineered feret cage (hey it was free). Scat is a 5 lb bunny with black otter coloring (looks just like chacha). not sure of the breed. I got him off of craigslist from a family that decided they no longer had time for him. I felt so bad taking him, the kids were fine, but Mom was in tears. Fortunately he was well loved and handled so its just a matter of getting him to bond to me and slowly allowing him more and more room to run. He is not to thrilled with me right now, we had our first vet visit today and not only did he have to endure an hour car ride each way, he had earmites so he got a shot. (dont tell him he is getting neutered next month, he will never speak to me again). He has been pretty good about returning to his cage to do his business but i put in a litterbox today, hoping begin training him to use a smaller area and he doesnt seem too thrilled with the idea. so we will see, may just end up keeping whole cage as litter box if i have to.
I have already learned alot from reading posts her over the past week and just wanted to say HI.
Here are some pic of Scat.

Why do you keep sticking that thing in my face???
His favorite spot which he was kind enough to clean off for me by knocking my boxes of craft supplies on the floor.
