As most of you may not have known, I have been running two blogs for around six months now and have decided that it may be more reasonable to just have one blog. I will still have this blog although I will not be posting anything on it. On my new blog I have uploaded all of the posts from this blog onto my Oria blog. If you would like to still read my blog posts on Oria each week, feel free! As I will still be posting about rabbit stuff on Oria.
To summarise everything you've just read, I will be posting a 'rabbit nibbles' post each week on my Oria blog and will also be posting about fashion, beauty, lifestyle, home-wear and rabbit stuff!
Rabbit Nibbles instagram account it will stay the same and have the same content.
And all the posts from Rabbit Nibbles are already uploaded onto Oria so you can still check out all of my previous post from Rabbit Nibbles!

I hope you enjoy my new blog Oria!

Pros and Cons Of Getting A Rabbit As A Pet

There are many Pros of getting a rabbit and everyone thinks that having a rabbit as a pet is easy. Let me tell you with 5 years experience with Nibbles it is not all 'smooth sailing'. Although a rabbit is great company there is a lot of work which comes with the 'company' of a bunny rabbit. If you are reading this to decide whether a rabbit is the right pet for you or your just curious as to how much work goes into taking care of a rabbit, you've come to the right place!


  • rabbits can't make loud sounds (so your neighbours won't complain).
  • they like eating carrot peels, banana peels, broccoli. etc (If you would like to find out what you should and shouldn't  feed your rabbit check out my blog post Things You Should And Shouldn't Feed Your Rabbit ).
  • Rabbits don't need a lot of toys
  • As most people think rabbits are .nocturnal, rabbits actually adjust to your time, if you take them out of there cage when you get up they will stay up till you put them back into there hutch and they may have the occasional nap from here and there.
  • rabbits are a lot more independent then dogs but not as independent as cats in the way that they won't leave your house all the time.
  • rabbits poo can be used as composed for your garden.
  • you won't need to bath your rabbit as rabbits clean themselves, the only time you may need to clean them is if they have poo or something stuck on their paws but make sure you don't ever wash there ears or get there ears wet as that could cause complications with your rabbits ears
  • Rabbits don't usually bite you although if a rabbit has not been desexed a male rabbits teeth can come in contact with you, keep in mind that your rabbit does not think that you are a carrot as that would draw blood from you, they bunny simply will just play fight you and give you a few 'nibbles' here and there, as I have witnessed Nibbles doing this to me, this only happens in the first half of summer when it is mating season, but besides that your rabbit will only lick you or nudge you.
  • Rabbits tend to pick a spot in a room and do there business there in that particular spot and that means even if it is carpet or tiles your rabbit will still do his or hers business there.
  • Rabbits need at least 3 hours of running around each day, with a minimum of 3 metres to play in, they may be small animals but as i said before they require a lot of work.
  • Rabbits attention span is a couple minuets meaning if you are training a rabbit they won't listen to you for long so make your training gradual throughout a couple weeks.
  • rabbits like to chew paper and anything straw or wood mainly because they need to grind there teeth down.
  •  Rabbits pee a stain on carpets which is quite hard to get out and also tiles although tiles are easier to clean there pee is also acidic which means it will work its way through something very slowly throughout time, if not removed.

I hope these pros and cons have helped you with deciding whether to get a rabbit or not, they are great fun although as I have shown you may be a bit of a handful with cleaning but I promise you if you decide to get a rabbit you will not regret it!

What I Do To Take My Instagram Photos Of @Rabbitnibbles

First Step - Where the pictures are set
I first choose where I am going to take the photos at. I think about the lighting, the way the plants are, whether they are a bit untidy or there are to many leaves and sticks on the ground and if Nibbles will run away because he is not allowed to run free outside because it's not fully closed off so he won't run away, but I do let he go outside now and then with a harness on. Besides making sure Nibbles won't run away, the number one thing I think is the most important in taking photos is the lighting, as the lighting can either make or brake a photo because you don't want a dull and blurry looking photo, I look for an eye catching bright photo to catch peoples attention.

Second Step - Taking the photos
Once I have decided where I will take the photos I bring Nibbles outside, my favourite two places are on the bench

as this always has really nice moody lighting or on the red bricks with plants behind it
because I always get great focused shots of Nibbles with a blurry background (my favourite kind of picture).
I take around thirty to fifty photos each time I think it's a sunny day. I try low angled, close up, eagle eye view shots I try different kinds of photos whilst trying to make sure Nibbles wont run away, it's quite a balancing act when you have an adventurous bunny. I try and take the most natural shots as possible with natural lighting, naturally positioned bunny (I let him just play around, and always give him his favourite treat, kale afterwards).

Third Step - The choosing of photos
I take the SD card out of my camera (Sony DSC-WX500) which is a vlogging camera although I really want a DSLR they are a lot of money. I insert my SD card into my laptop and look through the photos and put them into my hard drive even if they aren't the best of photos. From there I choose
the photos which I think have the right angle, the right lighting and not to blurry, there may be only two or there may be twelve it really only depends on the day.

Fourth Step - Transferring the photos
From there I send the chosen photos via email to my ipad one by one as most of them are to big of files, and  downloading the photos before sending one photos takes around two minuets at a time even before sending them! So in other words I need to find a quicker way, but for now it works.

Fifth Step -  Cropping the photos
I take the photos from the emails I have sent to myself and one by one I position them on Instagram to get the right shape (Square) to fit Nibbles Instagram page, and to determine whether I should have Nibbles in the centre of the photo or to the side to give a nice effect. From there I make sure the wifi of my ipad is off so I don't post the picture to Nibbles instagram. I post it "offline" and it saves it to my camera role, the I delete the post so it won't post once I put the wifi back on.

Sixth Step - Adding the white background
I use Pic Collage to get the white background in Nibbles Instagram feed. I straighten the photo up and try to position it in the usual spot and try to have the same amount of white as my other photos, then I save it to my camera role and delete the original photos which were saved from the email and Instagram.

Seventh Step - editing unwanted text
As Pic Collage have a logo down the bottom of the page I remove the logo by using the app called Retouch as I want my photos to be of bunnies as it's a rabbits Instagram page. This app isn't really worth buying, as I once use it for that purpose only and the app was not for free.

Eight Step - Posting it
Out of the numerous photos which is prepared I want to post something around each day or two days apart on his Instagram so I prepare heaps of photos ready to post as I can't take photos each day because I get really busy during the weekdays and would like to keep refreshing his posts with new content every so often. As I have done heaps of preparation before posting I make them into a square on the photos app which comes with Ipads so I can just click on the photo and go straight through to the caption. The caption is where I like to try and write something to interact with the people who are following Nibbles so its a more open and friendly environment. I ask about the weather, where they're from, how long rabbit owners have had there rabbit for etc. I of course say where I am from (Australia), how long I've had my rabbit for (almost five years!) just so then people don't feel like they are the only ones replying to the question. I love engaging with his followers as they too most likely have a pet of there own.

So from this blog post you can see the steps I go through to post and Instagram as I love photography and Instagram is a great way of posting amazing artwork which I love seeing, I think everyone is an amazing artist in there own way. You probably have guessed it, my favourite subject in school was art, and surprisingly maths as well (weird combination, I know)  If you have read this far you are amazing and comment down below saying "I read it all!" and I'll know your an amazing person.
Thanks for reading!

Where I Buy Rabbit Toys/Training Gear

Hi everyone! This week I thought I would share to you guys where I get Nibbles's Toys from...
DISCLAIMER: I am not trying to brag or show you expensive toys I get Nibbles, I wanted to write a helpful blog post if you are trying to find good rabbit toys and don't know where to look.

Cheap as chips -
I get such great toys from here, I love to experiment to see what kind of toys Nibbles likes, so I have many cat toys and dog toys as well as mouse toys and bird toys which Nibbles loves. As there aren't many places in Australia which don't have a lot of rabbit toys I go for other animal toys which I think he will like and Cheap as Chips definitely have an amazing range of animal toys.

Pet stock -
This shop by far has the most rabbit toys in stock, as this is a pets store. pet stock has the best quality of toys and has an amazing variety of different toys, they sell edible toys, wood toys, training toys etc. my absolute favurite toy from there range is the wooden flexible bridge, because it can be used in so many ways, it can be a bridge for your rabbit to climb over or a tunnel for your rabbit to go under, or it can be just for your rabbit to sit on. Nibbles also has taken a liking to chew on it as it is great to grind rabbits teeth down.

Here are the main places where I like to find toys for Nibbles, I hope this gave you an idea of where to get rabbit toys from, as I have shown you you can find rabbit toys in many different kinds of shops.
