A personal friend and Feeding Rabbits blog follower recently contacted me in a written state of tears. It seems that she too loves feeding rabbits, but is having trouble getting her rabbit to eat. Well Jessie from Tacoma, although I make no guarantees, here are three tips to get the pride and joy of your life, Milo the rabbit, to eat so much that you might get tired of feeding rabbits (just kidding, that could never happen to an avid lover of feeding rabbits).
Trick one – Try talking to your rabbit. It seems that scientists in Norway have found a link between human vocals and a rabbit’s dietary health. So next time your rabbit won’t eat, try reading out loud to it, unless you’re Stephen Hawking. Then you’ll need to get a recording of James Earl Jones reading one of your books. (A Brief History of Time was great by the way)
Trick two – Increase the amount of cardio that your rabbit gets on a daily basis. I know what you’re thinking, shouldn’t a rabbit’s cardio to calorie burn be about 12/88. The answer is “Nope”. Not for a rabbit that is not eating a healthy amount of carbs.
Trick three – Just like people, some rabbits are better visual learners. And no, this bit of factual information does not have any correlation with a rabbits handedness, like it does with people. It just seems that a small percentage of rabbits learn and retain better when shown a visual aid. So next time your rabbit is eating like a fat girl before prom (not very much) try posting it up in front of a photo of them + food = happiness.
