    We used to have a litter box trained rabbit when we still lived in town, he was a big old French Lop, until the day my boys decided to see how much water the (brand new on the market) absorbent cat litter would suck up. Answer, more than mom could carry. So bunny went to be someone else's pet. Boy were they ornery little buggers.

    I give my show buns about 1-2 tsp./day of sunflower seeds before a show to improve the coat, but if you feed too much of this stuff too long, it'll make them FAT. Other folks have used Calf Manna (high protein supplement) with some success.
