Cuddle Bunny is a quiet, comfortable place where people can interact with bunnies and fellow humans and where only peace and love are allowed to cross the threshold. Positivity reigns! We ask visitors to leave any negativity at the door.
We strive to maintain a clean space with air filtered by a central HEPA air purification system. That said, visitors with FOFF (Fear of Floating Fur) and contact lens users should beware. Rabbits molt their fur several times a year. Brushes are available and visitors are encouraged to kick back on a comfy cushion to brush our furry friends. They enjoy and it helps to reduce the amount of FF. We are diligent about sweeping, but you may find a stray cocoa puff here or there. If tiny brown balls of chewed hay are not your thing, a visit probably isn't your thing either.
Often in our society, activities are centered around food, drink, and mind-altering substances. Cuddle Bunny is a place for one to find pure enjoyment through simple oxytocin release. We ask visitors to arrive clear-minded for the safety of the bunnies and to open themselves to an alternative form of pure happiness and joy.
Bunnies are enjoyable simply by being bunnies. The way they groom themselves and each other is adorable; the way they drink water is adorable; literally everything they do is adorable. If, however, you are expecting back flips, summersaults, and tap dancing, you may not find a visit to be enjoyable and that is totally fine--Cuddle Bunny is not for everyone. Bunnies can be aloof requiring visitors to slowly, gently, and quietly initiate interactions, preferably at their level. If a bunny chins you or happens to give you a kiss, consider yourself special.
All the bunnies at Cuddle Bunny are incredibly social creatures and thrive on human attention. The greatest of care is taken to ensure their health and happiness in the least stressful environment possible. In addition to daily nap time from 1-3pm, the bunnies alternate days upstairs engaging in interactions and are given a day off in between as a break from the action.
Their diet consists of 80% Oxbow timothy hay, 10% fresh greens, 5% enriched pellets, and 5% treats of fresh fruit including apples, bananas, blueberries and an occasional biscuit. Their water bowls are sanitized and refreshed with filtered, room-temperature water daily. Their litter pans are lined with a training pad (for the non-chewers), filled with Timothy hay, and changed daily. They receive a weekly papaya tablet or Laxatone supplement to keep their digestive systems moving smoothly. Their nails are trimmed and weigh & temperature taken monthly. Their intake and output is continually monitored, they are regularly examined by a veterinarian, and all are spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated.
At the end of the day while the humans are undertaking closing activities, our bunnies are given free roam of the interaction area to stretch their legs, exercise and binky about. The carpeted runner spanning the length of the interaction space is the bunny race track! At night, the bunnies retreat to the living/boarding area downstairs where they enjoy hearing and witnessing each other's antics
