Boo and Rollo were doing their usual and snuggling in front of my radiator. I noticed Boo stick her head under Rollos butt then come up chewing. I went over to see what she had eaten but she had swallowed it by the time i got there.
It could be that she just found a tasty bit of dust (what is it with rabbits being total dust hoovers?) or she may have eaten one of Rollos cecal pellets.
Just wondering if this is harmful. I have read that sick rabbits can sometimes be given cecals harvested from healthy bunnies. Rollo is 100% healthy apart from being deaf in one ear. So i shouldnt envisage a problem. But if it isnt harmful is this normal behaviour?
