Hey! I'm a new member here at Binkybunny, but already have seen quite a bit of information on the forums. I have two new bunnies, i believe they are both Lop's but i'm not 100% sure. They are both intact males, of the same litter, and are 5 months old now. I named one, Cinnabun, but can't think of a name for the other yet! I also have two Spayed cats, Moo-Cow and Mufasa. Mo-cow is intrigued by the bunnies, where Mufasa is terrified of them! I have them a nice, 4foot cage, but let them out in our computer room everyday and lay on the floor with them so that they don't go near our computers. I haven't potty trained them yet, but they seem to only go in their cage which is good. Any advice would be great!

Welcome to BB! We're destined to be friends as I have a bun named Cinnabun as well! She's a year old mini lop. Be careful that as their hormones kick in, they will want to start claiming territory and may start fighting!

Lyri: I'm glad they havent gotten territorial yet, but within the next month or two, they will. BB has links for finding a bunny savvy vet in your area. You may have to go a little out of your way since exotic vets are more rare, but it's very important that you find one who can neuter your boys when the time comes. And yes, pics please!

Lyri: here is the official forum on BB for finding a vet in your area with lots of links. Good luck! And they are super cute. Does the black one have a name yet? Your Cinnabun and my Cinnabun look a lot a like!

My little black one sadly, is still nameless. I want to name him Lola so bad but it's just not a fitting name!
Also, i just suddenly thought about their diet, though i'm now thinking it's better suited for another thread. They're 5 mo old, so i'm wondering if they should have any Alfalfa hay? I've been feeding them unlimited Timothy Hay, and some pellets that have small bits of hay in them as well, but no alfalfa at all. Also giving them about half a cup of cut celery every other day.

Personally, I wouldn't. They are almost "adult" buns (7 months is considered no longer teenage/young buns) and alfalfa is a treat hay. Stick with the timothy since it's the best kind there is! Have you tried other veggies? Celery is ok, but there are lots of other veggies that might be better. Cilantro, for example, is a very good veggie and lots of buns love it. My Cinnabun also enjoys red leaf lettuce and romaine lettuce. Buns should be getting about 2 cups of veggies a day, according to the House Rabbit Society.

I haven't tried any Cilantro. Personally, i hate the stuff, takes my breath away, but i can give it a try for them! I heard lettuce was bad for them though, as well as carrots. Something about the carrots having too much sugar in them? Are there any certain Greens to stay AWAAAYYY from?

Also, my little black bunny does the cutest thing in the world. If you get him to lay on his back, and scratch his chest, he'll put his paws up in front of him like he's praying. It's adorable.

That's the official list of veggies. As to the things you asked about:
1) Stay away from Iceberg lettuce. Not good. Red leaf and romaine are good (and my buns loves them)
2)Carrots are a treat. If your bun likes them (I find that there aren't many that do..or not as many as you would think given what movies and TV teach us) then I'd give no more than 4/week. You're right: too much sugar which can lead to upset tummies and runny poos.
3) Stay away from iceberg lettuce, and any kind of beans/onions.
4) Does he get a far away look in his eyes? If he does, it's because he is tranced. Bunnies, when on their backs, often go into a trace which can be a great way to clip their nails.

You know, he kinda does, now that i think about it. He just lays there with a death grip with his paws like he's praying and he only stops when we stop petting him.
