Bunny Fun in the Snow!

No, I haven’t turfed Scamp outside in the cold. Not that I think he’d mind but I don’t fancy playing catch the rabbit in wellies. Instead I brought the snow to Scamp. I emptied out his digging box (usually filled with paper) and filled it with snow instead. I did the same thing last year and I think he remembered it because he was straight in and digging as soon as I put it down and had half the snow across the floor by the time I got the camera on.

It’s great enrichment for him and snow is great for digging. It’s slightly less messy that soil, though in hindsight perhaps a towel underneath would be a good idea. I didn’t think he’d get quite so energetic about throwing the snow around!

Here’s a video…

And some photos…

Of course after all the digging he needed a cuddle to dry his toes off. Actually, rabbit’s fur is pretty amazing stuff. All that mucking about in the snow and his toes, and the rest of him, weren’t cold at all.

  5. How wonderful! Scamp is a handsome boy! I’m new to this site as I am doing my research before I bring home my bunny! Thank you for all of the great insight!

      Thanks 🙂 Well done for doing your research first! That’s such an important part of successful bunny ownership.

    Aww.. Cute! But won’t he get cold with his fur damp afterwards?

    • Tamsin says:

      No, rabbits coats are really well insulated so although the surface might get damp the skin underneath stays dry. Plus indoors, they dry/warm up very quick and he can hop out the snow any time he wants 🙂

    Looks like he thoroughly enjoyed playing in the snow! He doesn’t seem to mind the cold at all (I certainly do) and he is obviously the world’s happiest bunny. If we have any snow this winter, I shall copy your idea for our two girls, Sauron (who definitely is a doe; it’s a long story) and Pancake.
