    Hi! I was wondering if you could do a post on how to spin angora wool! My grandma purchased a English angora awhile ago, but we can;t seem to figure out how to spin the wool! Thanks for your time!

      Hi Mackenzie! It is definitely a skill I am still working on lol! I have taken a couple classes, but I still need to work on it. Once I get a better handle on the skill I will certainly do some posts. In the meantime, I would definitely recommend you check out youtube. I have spent many hours watching videos on spinning, there are some great how to videos on there

    Hi! my name is Nan and I am a first time bunny owner. I am so thrilled with your site! Thank you so much for all the information! My rabbit is an Angora of German/French persuasion. πŸ™‚ I was so worried about what to feed him! Now I can rest easy! I am no longer afraid of dreaded wool block. I also love the way you said, “Learn to speak rabbit.” I am good at speaking horse, sheep or chicken. I am happy I will be able to speak rabbit as well! Thank you for this site, again.

    Hi, Liz!
    I don’t have any (tame) rabbits but I do have a visiting wild bunny.
    After our recent very bad snow storm (12+ ” in 24 hrs) I went out to see how my container plants had fared. Snow had piled high over all the containers so it took about 12 days for all of it to melt. I knew not remove the snow as that provided insulation. Something had been eating the tops of some of my bulb leaves. And there were dozens and dozens of brown round balls.
    You came to my rescue with the great photos of what Bunny poop looks like! I think Bunny lived in that corner of my container garden for those days of snow. And now I also know what was driving my dog nuts when we went out.
    Great website. I love all your animals!

    We were caring for orphaned cottontails. Looked online for cecotropes but couldn’t find any. Would you know how We could get some please?
    Thanks!

    • Liz says:

      Unfortunately I do not know where you could purchase cecotropes. Most of the time rabbits eat these as part of their diet, and the mother rabbit would be providing these to her babies before they go off on their own. Perhaps check in with your local wildlife rehab and rescue and see if they have any suggestions

    Hi Liz,
    I have a young Angora buck that I need to re-home. It’s been a difficult decision to make and it’s a long story that I won’t get into here. Do you know of anyone looking for another bunny? He’s a big, beautiful boy. I don’t want to surrender him to a shelter, his coat needs too much care. I’ll keep him until I find a suitable home. You can contact me privately at my email address, which I would guess you have access to. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

  6. Sarah says:

    Hi Liz! I just came across your website and it has helped me a lot with rabbit care. I have two bucks that I got from a re-home and they didn’t grow up with each other so they always “hump” each other for dominance. Unfortunately, they are both not neutered. Do you think I should get the neuter surgery done, the only bad part is I am a bit worried because the boys are both mature adults and I love them so much, I wouldn’t want them to pass away during the surgery. But I have also heard from some other bunny owners to just let them “hump” it out until they stop and find out who is the dominant one. I don’t really know what I should do. Any suggestions for bunny bonding?

    • Liz says:

      Neutering can be hard sometimes on adult rabbits and they do occasionally pass away from it, but in general it is a pretty safe procedure. I would definitely just let them hump it out though. Even neutered males (and spayed females) will still hump other rabbits for dominance, although not as frequently. As long as they aren’t fighting or trying to hurt each other, I would let them work it out. Good luck! πŸ™‚
