Good Morning! I am a former bunny owner. I adotped a 3 year old male cat in November but I miss having a bunny bouncing around. I'd greatly appreciate the group's thoughts on bunnies and cats co-habitating. Clear it's not an issue in THIS photo. haha

Sarah: I know of quite a number of households where bunnies and cats live in harmony. The cats are a little puzzled about how a furry critter can hophophop like bunnies do, but they generally don't mind. I would suggest adopting a bunny from a local shelter or rescue in your area. In the weeks and months after Easter, way too many bunnies get dumped at shelters. You would save a life by adopting one of these poor forgotten bunnies.

@Sarah: Two bunz are just as easy to care for as one bun and they keep each other company! Adopt a bonded pair or two singles that are bondable! I don't let my dogs alone with my bunnies, but the bunnies do rule the house. Even the dogs are afraid of them! I've seen cats and bunz live together quite nicely. Make sure they're always supervised when they're together and keep the bunz safe when you aren't there. They are prey and predator, remember. Good for you for adopting!

cat and bunny very funny!

Sarah said...

Thank you all for your advice, I really apprecaite it! I'm going to take Oliver (the cat) with me to the HRS adoption event this weekend (the coordinator said it was OK). I would feel more comfortable bringing Oliver to the bunnies and testing out his comfort level (through a cage) than bring a bunny home on HIS turf. I would never, EVER want to put a bunner in harms way!

If it all works out you can expect to see a posting from me on DR! My angel bun, Simon, is already a DR-star! (December 2007)

My cat Abby "pretends" to ignore or dismiss my bun Bandit. However, it is all a ruse because I occasionally catch them playing and chasing each other. Bandit on the other hand, will run around Abby and be quite submissive to see if she will play. They are really fun to watch. Luckily Abby is declawed and I rarely leave them alone without Bandit being in his cage.

Yeah, my buns and cat are on DR. :) Oreo and Tank are bunnies we adopted from a humane society and Olive is a stray cat we took in.

The bunnies do seriously disapprove of the cat because she is naive enough to think that she runs the house. :)

My cats and rabbit are fine with each other, so long as the cats remember who is in charge. While they mix together happily, I never leave them together unsupervised. My rabbit goes into "protective custody" when there are no humans around. I also have "cat-only" and "bunny-only" places, where each can go for a time out.

Sarah: Thank-you for considering adopting a bunny from a shelter.

These little furry friends need people like you to save their lives.

Please let us know how you go on, and share pictures of your new long-eared, loving, furry friend(s).

Queen Cinnamon will definitely approve! And so will we all!

Tank and Oreo have taken over this kitty palace and turned it into a condominibun. No more free ride for this kitty! Free rides for bunnies...that just sort of goes without saying....

DB said...

Olive earns her place in the condominibun by acting as decoy. Being on the top shelf she is the most exposed therefore if any of the annoying apes that plague the area pass by hoping to "snorgle" something olive will be the most likely target, allowing Tank and Oreo to escape and rain disapproval down on the perpetrator from afar.

Make no mistake buns are brilliant strategists.

janet2buns said...

Setting up the kitty to bear the brunt of the snorgling is indeed brilliant. When the revolution comes, Olive will no doubt be awarded plum government contracts in recognition of her usefulness to the bunny overlords.

What a container-ful of cuteness!
