To bring that heavenly symptom on my lip, I took an appointment from her. Because, it’s getting tougher for me to set an invariable rabbit bedding, even could not detect the right bedding for my Prince William.
If you are surprised for calling my bunny as Prince William, then it’s okay, because Ruth also felt the same. But trust me!! The name was able to bring a great voice from the consultant, and that is: “DIY Rabbit Bedding.”
Through that grotesque idea, I have become one of the most fortunate rabbits, indeed. Then, I decided to share some significant sparks by blending expert consultancy and my experience, for your ultimate convenience. So here we go:
Healthy Rabbit bedding ideas:
Usually, Rabbit bedding depends on the nature of bunnies, by analyzing the quality; a parent should choose the ideal bedding for them. But some basic things the owner should consider, for example, chewing habit which is 120 per minute with 17,000 taste buds.
Can you imagine? 7,000 taste buds which are more than a human being! With that, it tears down all the surrounding things for keeping away overgrowing teeth disease. Yet, this caution brings immense sorrow for the rabbit in some cases, due to swallowing unhealthy objects.
Therefore, the early requisite afore installing bed for the tiny prince is selecting material according to their health demand. And the healthy bedding ideas are throwing below:
1. Cardboard Bed:
Clasping the first throw with cardboard idea, and it is packed with colossal Cellulose. As a result, the parent doesn’t need to think about digestion issues because it can be considered as an alternative to vegetables & Leaves.
Thus, the idea of making a bed from cardboard is very good and cost-efficient, for executing the concept, the guardian needs mid-size cardboard, after collecting the material, tear the whole board off into little pieces, soak it with water and dry it quarterly. Then, spread it on the indoor rabbit cage or outdoor rabbit cage, that’s it, you are done.
2. Paper Bed:
The next catch is the Paper bed idea, straightforward to generate and perfect for rabbit health, but it depends on the paper you use. To execute the concept, I prefer white paper. So the process of making the bed is:
Take some white paper and put that into an old clothed pillow cover then soak it into water. After that, dry up the paper pole and rip off by rubbing your both hand, until the hand feels comfortable. Put that inside the rabbit cage afterward; monitor the comfort of your rabbit.
With those two ideas, parents can easily fosterage a healthy rabbit; in fact, the best options one can utilize for a rabbit bed. As the experience of my past rabbit bedding was not that much good, those Paper bed and Cardboard bed ideas pulled the trigger finally for me as a blessing.
