A New Old Rug for the Bunny Rabbits
We got this primarily so that the bunnies could have a larger space to lounge around and, more importantly, to run around. They weren’t able to get much traction on the wood floors, and our mish-mash of smaller rugs wasn’t really cutting it.
While they have carpet in their open pen area, we felt a larger space could give them room to sprint. Whenever the bunnies get super excited or happy, you’ll see them on a tear (similar to what a cat might do). During these phases, Liz and I have taken to saying that they’ve “got the hops.”
Because it’s a somewhat infrequent thing, and because it’s an indicator of their happiness – it makes us grin, ear to ear, whenever it happens. Hopefully it happens more, now that they have this rug.
