pet rabbits fascination with stuffed toy
« on: 21/02/2006 02:03:31 »
My pet rabbit has recently fallen in love (lust) with a stuffed cat I have. Numerous times a day the rabbit mounts and proceeds to hump (for lack of a better word) the stuffed toy. Is this a normal occurence? Should I be worried, or should I encourage the behaviour by keeping the stuffed animal around...

i have two pet cats at my parents house, that could make for some interesting play...

-Meg

It's perfectly normal behaviour. It's a rabbit doing what a rabbit does...and there are many funny video compilations which include this activity...after all, it's  really funny !! :D....Please do not worry..........

......Of course you may wish to clean the STUFFED (pun intended)toy every once in a while !! ;)

Where have I been? Working. I've been so f'ing busy at work since the new year, it's unbelievable. It's hard to find time to get on the net these days.  And on the odd occasion I do, I only have the energy for mindless games (like counterstrike) - I'm unable to concentrate enough to digest the heavy stuff on TNS.

So what's changed on TNS?  Do we have an environmental forum yet? Or a chatroom facility? Have you moved on from only posting food-related queries?? ;):D
