    :haha: I let my rabbit out today and we gave him food. He loved it then i turned on the tredmil and he didnt even care! Right before he fell off I turned the tredmil off. Then I picked him up as usaull he started kicking so I put him down he started running around like crazy. And I think theres a problem with him. I think he has a shedding problem he sheds a real lot and I dont know when my ma is gonna take him to the vet. :confused: :no:

    You rabbit's probably just fine. He's probably shedding his winter coat. You can comb him to get the hair under control.

    Agree with MaineFarmMom. Remember rabbits are prey animals--EVERYTHING eats them in the wild--so they are not like dogs and cats, loving to be picked up. Mother rabbits don't even carry their young around like dogs and cats. In the wild, if a rabbit is picked up, it's something's dinner. Kicking and struggling is the natural reaction of a prey animal trying to escape, even if your bunny is otherwise friendly. My rabbits want "four on the floor": if they must be held, they'd much rather SIT in my lap rather than being HELD with their feet dangling in the air.

    Enough on this thread about rabbits and treadmills. Rabbitgal is correct to post this is not a forum for pet rabbits. This thread is closed.
