  • A few recommendations when bringing your Cutest Bunny home:
    When your Cutest Bunny arrives home they may sit and observe in their cage for some time (up to a few hours) before they begin enjoying hay, pellets, water and cuddles. This is their way of observing and getting comfortable in their new home! We recommend 45 minute intervals holding your Cutest Bunny and then return them to their space so they can relieve themselves to ensure they know they will get an opportunity to go to the bathroom. We have practiced with them before they go to their forever home with intervals. By maintaining their training this will support your Cutest Bunny as they try to hold off on having accidents outside of their cage. We recommend no fruit or vegetables until your Cutest Bunny is 3 months’ old when they can better digest the sugars. When holding your Cutest Bunny support their back two feet to make them feel secure (rather than them feeling like they may be falling). We strongly encourage a water dish for your Cutest Bunny cage to ensure your dwarf furry friend gets the water they need, as sometimes the water bottle requires more suction power then the dwarf bunnies can provide. If you have questions or concerns with your Cutest Bunny feel free to contact us, we are always happy to keep in touch!
  • How are Cutest Bunnies with other pets and new friends in their environment?
    Curious and Friendly with human supervision. Feel free to ask us questions you may have with bringing a Cutest Bunny to your forever home.
  • What do Cutest Bunnies eat and drink?
    Main diet is water, rabbit pellets and hay. Water Highly recommend a water dish, rather than a water bottle as we have experienced issues with Custest Bunnies not having enough suction power to get the water they need due in the event of nozzle malfunctions Rabbit pellets Rabbit pellets primary ingredient is Timothy grass meal Typical other ingredients in rabbit pellets are: Soybean Hulls, Wheat Middlings, Soybean Meal, Cane Molasses Brands: Oxbow Essentials and Rolling Acres Note: Choose the pellets without the coloured pieces that are added in some small pet foods for Guinea pigs Hay Preferably Timothy hay that contains more grass than Alfalfa hay which is higher in protein) Cutest Bunnies often enjoy vegetables that are low in sugar, only after they are three months old and their tummies can better digest the sugars. For a list of suitable veggies and fruits we recommend the following source: Note: fruit is high in sugar and should be given as a special treat only
  • Are bunnies social and do they enjoy the company of other bunnies?
    Cutest Bunnies love love love to socialize as they have been interacting with humans at a very early age! They love socializing with other bunnies as most Cutest Bunnies are raised with siblings. Socializing with your bunny daily as you watch a movie, relax and cuddle! Remember to share the cuteness with pics and video clips of your Cutest Bunny! Bunnies love being in pairs and enjoy the companionship of another bunny! We recommend spaying or neutering if you are getting a bunny pair to reduce the risk of one bunny being territorial over the other once their hormones come into play.
  • Do your bunnies come litter trained and how to I maintain the training?
    Yes, Cutest Bunnies begin litter training before they go home. To maintain the training and assist your bunny as they transition at home, we recommend to buy a litter pan that is square (rather than triangular in shape). Purchasing a stable litter pan that does not move or tip is essential for success! Litter pans are to be filled with shavings or a rabbit safe litter that will absorb the wetness. Clumping cat litter is not safe for bunnies. When transitioning your bunny home, we recommend a maximum of 45 minutes away from the litter box to start as they get accustomed. If you are watching a movie on the couch cuddling your bunny that is great, but don't forget to let your bunny have access to water and their litter to avoid an unwanted surprise! You’ll want to limit their free roam space in the beginning to get them acclimated to their new area. Buying a puppy pen to confine them in one area is a good idea. As they are progressing in their training, you can open their space up more until they are fully potty trained. Then feel free to let them free roam with full access to their litter pan. If for any reason they start having accidents, retract their space again until they’re using their litter box. Some families have multiple litter boxes depending on how big of a space they have to run around in. Here are a few other tips for those stubborn, “outside-the-box” bunnies: If an accident occurs, wipe up the urine with a paper towel and pick up stray poop and place both in the litter box. This helps get the message across that the litter box is the place that they should do their business. Keep in mind that bunnies are generally not 100% perfect with their litter box. Sometimes they leave a few droppings next to the box, or they urinate over the edge of their box. This is normal, so placing a non-fibrous mat (that cannot be chewed) under their litter box or putting the litter box on a tile floor makes it easier to clean up these little mistakes. Some bunnies take patience and extra time where some are very quick learners mastering litter training. Bunnies pick a corner of their cage they usually like their litter. If the bunny is going in a specific corner make sure that is where you place the litter. Fun fact: some bunnies will even go in their food dish if it’s in the corner they want to call their bathroom! Cutest Bunnies generally like the top right corner of their cage for their bathroom.

  • I read somewhere about an outbreak of a deadly rabbit virus in USA and Alberta. Anything to worry about in Ontario?
    Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is a highly contagious disease caused by a calicivirus that affects rabbits. RHDV is often a very swift and sudden killer, giving little warning. Rabbits may die without showing any symptoms at all. Cutest Bunnies has been free from RHDV and is committed to not providing pet hoteling/ mining services to ensure isolation to avoid risk of RHDV. We share with a couple other rabbitries bunnies tips and processes that are RHDV free to ensure no other bunnies are brought to our premise. This is a deadly virus that we are very very cautious about. We are thankful that we have a safe rabbitry and strongly warn against getting a bunny from a rabbitry that is not using top safety practices or that is out of province given the current situation. Notice: Updated June, 2021.
  • Is my bunny a boy or girl?
    Gender is difficult to determine before 3 months of age. Best way is to check using these steps you may find helpful with cartoon images:'s,the%20fur%20with%20your%20hand.
  • Do bunnies need to get spayed or neutered? When do most people decide?
    There are health benefits with spay/ neuter and there are also risks to surgery with more associated with spay. Its you personal choice as a bunny owner. We offer advise based on our experience as we are not a professional veterinarians. Many people opt to spay or neuter if they have more than one Cutest Bunny. Most vets recommend 3-6months of age in my experience. The cost I have seen a wide range and Guelph area usually comes in at lowest rates with Toronto highest.
  • Where do you get supplies and cages to prepare for your Cutest Bunny?
    We are excited to be offering the Cutest Bunnies Essential Kit at a competitive price with all the necessary items to get your new furry friend started, with the feed and bedding fresh from our local farmers. Cutest Bunnies Essential Kit items: Local fresh hay, pellets and bedding shavings.

Most bunny supplies can be purchased at the following stores: Amazon (visit our supplies & nutrition page for links to Amazon products) Walmart The TSC Store Petsmart Pet Value
  • What is your tip for introducing bunnies to each other?
    If you are bringing home two Cutest Bunnies that are siblings there is no bonding required as they don't know life without one another. If you have another bunny and are introducing it to a Cutest Bunny be sure to slowly introduce the bunnies together in a ‘neutral space’ or with a gate or cage first to see how they interact with one another. This allows them a chance to greet and establish the initial bond with safety. The younger the bunnies the more likely they will bond with ease. A bunny older than two that has formerly had a bunny partner often will wish to have another bunny as company. We have had success within our CB community of introducing a young Cutest Bunny to an older bunny that has lost its partner. Please inquire if you are hoping to do this as we do our best to get the best match possible. Neutral space is a space that is not either bunnies home but rather a clean space (no harmful chemicals or cleaning agents) to allow them to meet without either bunny feeling like an intruder.
  • Can you recommend vets for exotic animals or bunnies?
    Depends on the area you live we find outside of Toronto is where most of our customers go for lower rates.
  • Have you heard of other bunny homes getting pet insurance for bunnies?
    We don’t recommend pet insurance at this time and have not heard of it commonly gotten for bunnies.
  • Nail clipping - How often and how to do?
    Recommend starting over 3 months of age with curled nail clipper as required (do not straight nail clippers for human nails, as you could crack their nails!!) Nail clipping is typically every couple months. You can use a natural block of wood for them to grind their nails too. Deciding after 3 months of age to clip bunnies nails there is a risk that the blood vessels have travelled down the nail bed so please be very careful to avoid risks. Some grooms and vets offer nail trimming services if you prefer. Most of our Cutest Bunny furrever homes simply do it quickly themselves.
  • What fruit and veg can we or should we give our Cutest Bunny?
    None until at least three months then I prefer you stick to leafy greens for treats. Fruit is high in sugar for the dwarfs tummies.
  • Do you recommend disposable absorbent pads, blankets or string toys?"
    No, I don’t recommend as the bunny could chew and ingest without human supervision. Please don't leave in the Cutest Bunny space unattended to ensure safety.
  • What do we look for in a pellet if the recommended brands are not available?
    We offer Supplies! visit our page for details. Remember the greener the hay and pellets the fresher it is.
  • Any dangers we should be aware of?
    Chewing fiberous items that can be a choking hazards like carpet, blankets, and towels. To much sugar in their diet! Water dish, over the water bottle is preferred to ensure enough water intake for your Cutest Bunny.
