Ok, I have a funny question for all of you, has your buns taken to any strange foods as their absolute favorite? My bun Cuddles loves Doritos chips! Its so funny! She snuck into some of mine in the past and now every time she hears that chip bag, she comes tearing over begging for some! I have given her a few pieces of a chip here and there, and its the regular cheese ones, but that isnt bad for her is it???
If I ignore her begging she gets mad! She'll start thumping at me and go pout behind the couch.
Anyone else's bun's like this???

Bailey will take to any kind of food you put in front of her.  She really is an oinker.   Rucy would love to get hold of Doritos or anything chips and nuts oriented, but I do caution you.  I have read, and have had a friend who experienced a bunny with serious digestive issues due to snacking on those foods.  (too much carbohydrates for a bunny's system)

Depending on how much is offered in a single sitting, it can happen overnight, or an imbalance can occur long term with this as a regular snack, even if in smaller amounts.  By serious digestive issues, I'm talking mostly about Gi Stasis, which ends up being a slow-down or stop, and if not caught soon enough, can become fatal. 

So just be careful, and don't let her sucker you in.  They are sooooo good at that.  How can we refuse those cute fuzzy faces?!!!  It seems so cruel,  But I  would recommend offering something healthier for her system.

My bunny-girl Bobo (RIP 12/31/05) used to eat EVERYTHING.
I don't think she knew she was sposta be a rabbit.

One day my boyfriend made scrambled eggs, and put the plate on the coffee table and walked away. Next thing we heard was a huge crash cuz Bobo knocked the plate off the table! She was trying to steal his food!

Another time, he was eating bacon. And she was being a pest on the couch, trying to get what he was eating. He literally tried to show her (put a piece of bacon to her nose) to get her to realize she didn't want it. Usually after sniffing meat she would run off.
Instead, she took a bite of the bacon and ate it! We were amazed and also scared, since bunnies can't eat meat!
But thank god, that time nothing happened.

yes - I also worry about the sugars and carbohydrates leading to sluggish motility, so seriously limit treats. When they're things that aren't really for bunnies I'll give them a TINY little bit very occassionally. mostly i try to stick with oxbow treats since i know they're not too taxing on bunny's tummies and they seem to love them.
