About Nibbles

Age: 4 (at the moment)
Birth date: 17 of September
Type of breed: cute and fluffy?
Gender: male
Age when adopted: 6 weeks
Personality: VERY adventurous, and just in general crazy!
  • Running (or in this case hopping)
  • Chasing me all around the house (and nearly making me trip over him all the time) 
  • Kale
  • Parsley
  • Carrots 
  • Getting rubs on the head
  • Flopping out (as shown down below)
  • Being cheeky and going out and adventuring into the garden
  • Going through the tunnel
  • Playing with a see through curtain
  • Big dogs
  • Stairs (yet he is adventurous and enjoys going for a little wonder upstairs, even when he is not supposed to)
  • Dried corn
  • Going into his hutch

So as you can tell Nibbles loves many things but when he is put in a situation in which he 'dislikes' such as being put into his hutch which normally ends up with Nibbles running up and down kicking the sides of his hutch a couple of times, just to get the message across that he is annoyed and wants to be brought back inside (that cheeky munchkin). My favourite thing that Nibbles loves doing is playing with the curtain, he just runs around with a bit of the curtain in his mouth trying to twist it and just playing and having fun with it in general, which I think is adorable.

What Nibbles Eats Daily

In the morning Nibbles normally wakes up before I wake up especially in the holidays. Every morning whilst I watch TV and eat breakfast, he hears the TV on and realises that I'm up so he starts to kick the sides of his hutch to get my attention. Once I have finished eating my breakfast I finally give into the urge of getting him out of his hutch and bring Nibbles inside to have his breakfast.

There is half a cup or less of pellets which is always at his reach throughout the day and also a bowl of water which he can drink or eat at anytime because they are the most important source of nutrients that a rabbit can have.

Around lunch time or dinner time I would give Nibbles either a seed mix or some kale (which is his absolute favourite food). At lunch time I would let him go outside or play with him inside with some of his toys, if you would like to see what toys Nibbles plays with to help stimulate his brain check out my last blog post.

After Nibbles has gotten a bit tired out from either playing with his toys or running around outside, or I guess just chasing me around the house. I give him a carrot once finished if he is still hungry I'll give him either some parsley or a homemade treat which I have also written a blog post on how to make them. The good thing about making your own rabbit treats is that you know there aren't any chemicals or preservatives and you definitely get a lot of rabbit treats which will last you around 4 weeks or more.

After dinner I let Nibbles stay inside until he needs to go into his hutch, which is bedded with hay and newspaper underneath. Nibbles also has a drink bottle. Small animal drink bottles cost from $5 to $15 here is a cheap one which seemed to last quite a long time.

I hope this helped or informed you on what is good for your rabbit to eat and what Nibbles eats daily. As at times I am not at home with Nibbles, before I go I put a carrot or a couple pieces of kale into his hutch so he wont go hungry. For rabbits, it is ideal to have around 4 hours of play time and free roaming whether it's inside your house or on the grass area.
