    Wonderful, useful content. Thank you so much.

  2. Anita Beeldsnijder on June 16, 2022 at 3:01 am

    i use a plastic cage as a litter box, my rabbit mostly free roams. He only stays in the cage when we go to sleep or when we are not at home

  3. Amanda Witherspoon on June 16, 2022 at 3:01 am

    My bunnies will free roam as soon as they get spayed and neutered,

  4. Blanka Gasparovich on June 16, 2022 at 3:03 am

    I was watching this video, looking at my bunny chewing on his hidey home. That I got off amazon – it’s wood. Lightbulb goes off. I check the order, the wood type is conveniently left out of the item description but a few of the questions responded to by other buyers say Pine… TT^TT I need a new hidey home for Hades… A better one, because otherwise he’ll be upset if I take this one away. Gosh dang it!

    Thanks Amy. <3

    No cage for rabbits !

  10. Bait on June 16, 2022 at 3:07 am

    What size cage do you have?

  11. Amy Gauthier on June 16, 2022 at 3:07 am

    Okay, so I have a situation…
    So I have a friend, who owns a one year old Holland Lop rabbit. (I own two baby Holland Lops) And she doesn’t have proper rabbit care and I’m not sure how to explain how to help her. She THINKS that she is like… the perfect rabbit mom. But here are some examples of her bunny care:
    doesn’t refill hay often enough
    doesn’t give ANY toys
    gives TONS of treats
    not enough veggies for meals
    small rabbit cage (4ft by 1 1/2ft)
    So how do I explain that she does have proper rabbit care? And thank you for your videos!

  12. Markeisha Robinson on June 16, 2022 at 3:07 am

    I am having so much trouble with the play pen options.. I can’t seem to find an area rug that would be the right size.

  13. FIRE DRILL on June 16, 2022 at 3:10 am

    my rabbit is basically kept in an extra-large plastic dog crate outside because my mom decided to get a boyfriend with allergies. So my rabbit has been booted outside with a bunch of things that can kill it I fucking hate her for this. I want to put her outside to see how she likes it.

  14. Alanna A. on June 16, 2022 at 3:12 am

    It my birthday tomorrow and my rabbit was supposed to be part of it but he died due to RHDV2 even though he was inside for the most part I am so sorry for being a bad bunny owner on a channel that teaches how to be a good bunny owner.

  15. Kayla Smith on June 16, 2022 at 3:13 am

    I have an ex pen and she still manages to push it around on the floor, and will eventually get out. Any recommendations?

  16. Amy Gauthier on June 16, 2022 at 3:13 am

    i love your hair! It looks so pretty when its down! Also, thanks for the tips! You’re so creative!

  17. Cheezitnator on June 16, 2022 at 3:13 am

    My REW velveteens are escape artists so the puppy pens don’t work. They pull them around and climb out. Even tried putting cardboard over the top. Looks like I need to build a wooden jurassic park level enclosure for them. I miss my buns so much when I’m deployed. I wish I could reach through and pet the Ellie every time she gets close to the camera.

  18. Sandy Reed on June 16, 2022 at 3:13 am

    Hi , I just got a mini lop rabbit, and I gave him a room to play but know he hides under the sofa. Then run when I come close to grab him and put him in the sleep cage. So I can sleep. Would he bite me, when I got him he let grab him out the boxer walk around. But now he just wants to be under the sofa which I’m not enjoying this at all, can of stressful for me. Thinking of taking him back.

  19. 3 Buns in a Pod on June 16, 2022 at 3:15 am

    How long did it take for you to bond this well with Ellie?

  20. Keri Sable on June 16, 2022 at 3:18 am

    All video I watch on bunny

  21. 414MrMilwaukee on June 16, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I accidentally gave him the whole room.
    Now I’m charging him half the rent

  22. News with We might go missing on June 16, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I’m gonna buy my rabbit a whole play house so is that good

  23. Gary The Life Squirrel on June 16, 2022 at 3:26 am

    How old is Ellie?

  24. ItzNotSoCreativeKyleigh on June 16, 2022 at 3:28 am

    Keep up these videos! You seem to know a lot about them and I appreciate that!

  25. Kayla Grice on June 16, 2022 at 3:28 am

    What vacuum do you have? I’ve been searching through so many reviews with the search term "hay" 😂

  26. Cocos Puglife on June 16, 2022 at 3:31 am

    What about large wooden hutches lined with Linoleum?

  27. Wendy Badea on June 16, 2022 at 3:34 am

    Just and FYI your links are not working correctly.

  28. Dreamin-Al-Aqsa on June 16, 2022 at 3:35 am

    your rabbit is so cute

  29. Elaine Goh on June 16, 2022 at 3:36 am

    If my rabbit grows older/bigger and starts to hop out of the pen, would it be okay to drape a large piece of cloth over it (especially at night) to deter her from hopping out when I can’t supervise her?

  30. Mommy bird by Thasli on June 16, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Could you send a link to a cheap play pen (in the comments)

  31. JRKeys on June 16, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Poppy is free roam she is litter trained and desexed she enjoys sleeping on the end of my youngest son Joey’s Bed 💖 we use cable covers and ccpen walls and they are even handy to keep my youngest child away from power points and cables aswel 💞

  32. Holly Hall on June 16, 2022 at 3:37 am

    What about 9 Bunnies

  33. crazybunny on June 16, 2022 at 3:38 am

    Your channel is one of the best out there for rabbit info….probably the best tbh! And I watch alot. I’ve had apollo 2 months and he is hilarious. Chases the hoover and tries to hump my cats (yes neutered) I have him half free roaming and half in ex pen as dont believe in cage either x

  34. Nexii Vanadis on June 16, 2022 at 3:41 am

    I’m trying out Yo Gorilla Mats for my next rabbit. I haven’t seen them recommended anywhere else; perhaps because they are a new product. They’re thick rubber mats that are durable and waterproof with good grip. The downside is that they cost more than area rugs or foam mats.

  35. Summer Rae on June 16, 2022 at 3:42 am

    I love your channel! You have helped me out so much with my rabbit. You do an amazing job. Thank you!

  36. ItsBlanquito on June 16, 2022 at 3:42 am

    I can’t concentrate on you I just can’t stop looking at Ellie, she is the cutest 😍😍😍

  37. Mozame Mogki on June 16, 2022 at 3:43 am

    This is some good info, I had ended up getting my bun a large cage that’s her safety zone, it was bare wire so i cut some carpet to shape for it and closed off the edges so she has comfy footing and then attached an exercise pen to it for some more space.

  38. Catherine Baldwin on June 16, 2022 at 3:45 am

    That you for your content. I am planing to buy or build a crate that 54×36 (4.5×4 ft) that around 36-42” tall. And I’m planning to get two exercise pens for a total of 64 sq ft of running space. It because of you and my best friend that made me want to get a bun, and I feel like I will be a good pet parent because of your content. So, thank you.

  39. Elaph Ali on June 16, 2022 at 3:46 am

    Thanks for the amazing content ❤ you look so pretty

    Thank you!!! I am a subscriber and I am10 and I have a rabbit and I just got a new hutch for my rabbit and it has an upstairs and a downstairs and he loves it ❤️❤️❤️ again thank you!!😊

  42. Cheezitnator on June 16, 2022 at 3:48 am

    Alternatively, the plastic cage bottom can be used as a large litter box.

  43. Dawn Dolinski on June 16, 2022 at 3:49 am

    my boyfriend found a beautiful rabbit in his backyard, someone must of dropped him off 😔 he’s pure black, I looked I up, he’s a black Rex, but rite now we have him in a small cage which is killing me, he let’s him roam when he gets home, I don’t live there, so I’m ordering a excersise playpen, thx for the tip! I will continue watching u🙂

  44. Hoffman Happenings on June 16, 2022 at 3:52 am

    Great video very helpful. Love all your videos! So helpful for a new bunny owner. My Snowflake looks just like your Ellie so I like to watch.

  46. Lieutenant Simon Riley on June 16, 2022 at 3:54 am

    Hey! We just got our Rabbit/Bunny yesterday! He’s huge and i’m scared to pet him! We won’t be getting our bunny cage for a few days, so we made a cardboard box for him to chill in and gave him food and water. Any good ideas on where he should belong? Is this okay? Thanks!

  47. Don Johnston Jr on June 16, 2022 at 3:54 am

    Hi, we are looking into getting two lionhead babies from someone we know. We have been watching a lot of you videos and I have some questions about the housing. We are looking into this xxlarge crate. Visit the MidWest Homes for Pets Store

    Midwest SL54DD ‘Ginormus’ Double Door Dog Crate for XXL for the Largest Dogs Breeds, Great Dane, Mastiff, St. Bernard. It is on Amazon, I was wondering if you think it will be appropriate for them.

  48. 21agfilming on June 16, 2022 at 3:55 am

    Great ideas!!

  49. Powerful Muslimah on June 16, 2022 at 3:57 am

    hey! so I clicked on the link for the exercise pen, and it took me to a 24 inch pen. Is this the size you recommend?

  50. Katya Chavez on June 16, 2022 at 3:57 am

    I keep my Holland lop in a large kids play pen while I am at work in the daytime
