This goes back a few years but still...

While I was working at the pet shop, my mother walked in carrying her bunny in her arms. I could see that something wasn't right. The bunny had the famous lil ball (you know the one with the holes around and bell inside) stuck to her mouth. When I checked her out, I saw that her teeth were badly caught in one of the holes and the ball was almost cutting into her gums. We had to restrain her and cut the ball off with pliers.

I never let the bunnies play with their toys unsurpervised and neither did my mom, but the bunny just wanted to toss the ball so my mother didn't think anything of it.

So anywho, I thought I'd mention it because it is such a common toy. I suggest you get one with larger holes.

Thanks for the head's up on this...I would never have assumed the danger of hooking teeth into the holes. I appreciate the warning.  I am very happy your bun bun is okay now!

Yep, exactly, it's those small cat balls. Who woulda thought? Heh!

Sadly, that bun passed away. She had malocclusion and developped an abcess. Despite all our efforts she passed away. She was such a special bun too.
