Bunny Sitting!

So as of tonight I am Bunny sitting for a fellow Military Wife for about 4 days. My Son was SOOOOOOO excited when the Rabbit was dropped off it was so adorable!

She is a super cute little thing, although I've forgotten her name, ha.

Ahh poor baby does she live in the cage all the time? Cedar can cause health issues and they need a lot more room.
She is very cute.

Yes I know, she is not my Rabbit. I also don't have a relationship with the Woman where I could correct their care.

It is a cute rabbit but that cage is absolutely horrible. It is sad how people get animals with no knowledge on their care. My rabbit hates getting locked in his cage and it is 8' x 4' x-pen. Maybe when the owner picks the rabbit up you could recommend the site Binky Bunny http://www.binkybunny.com/HOME/tabid/36/Default.aspx . It's a great site with a forum, a rabbit care info area and a store that sells all kinds of great rabbit supplies.

She is adorable! I think she is out all of the time at her home. She seems very friendly and calm. Her Family have only had her for a month.

Honestly, it is none of your business whatsoever to be criticizing people's care of their animal as long as that animal is happy and healthy. You don't know how they care for it at home or if it is out all day while they are home.
Not my Rabbit and I don't just go expressing my opinion when it isn't asked of so I'm not about to go and tell her owner that they are doing everything wrong, even if they are.

Maybe the rabbit DOES have a large enclosure. We obviously haven't seen where it lives so none of us can judge. How do we know that the lady didn't just fish that cage out and give it to Kayla with the bunny as temporary housing. If she has a large enclosure at home then they're most likely not going to use it. It could also be a house bunny. My fiancÚ had a house rabbit (Parsley) and he would free roam. He also had a sleepy cage too. I have that sleepy cage at my place and honestly I wouldn't use it to house something in permanently but it does the job if you need to use it as either a sleeping cage or an away from home cage. People take their birds on holiday and such with them and keep them in a carry cage or much much smaller cage than what the bird is used to. You don't take a macaws double cage on holiday do you and as Kayla said, she is not in a position where she can say 'do this do that' to the person, which is fair enough. The rabbit looks very healthy from the photos and clearly well cared for

Exactly, well said. I have only met this Lady once for 5 minutes while she dropped off the Rabbit so I don't really know how they keep her at home, lol. I have started doing pet sitting for small animals on Base and she found me through our local Facebook group for Mil. Spouses. She seemed like a very nice Lady and the Rabbit is basically her Daughters. They adopted the Rabbit from the local shelter so they are definitely well meaning.

She is amazing I had her out in the kitchen running around the other day and she is so nice.
I also suggested to the owner that they stop using the Cedar bedding and she said she'd tell her Daughter/Husband as they are the ones responsible, ha.
