A heat wave!!!!!!
Our bunnies are okay and although it is hot, they love to play the game “how many bunnies can fit in an empty milk crate?” ….lol
It is sooo hot this week : 40degrees Celsius! and it just doesn’t get any cooler. We are very lucky to be in a cooler zone surrounded by mountains and forests BUT it is still very hot ! Our bunnies are doing well and are kept cool, but for any of you out there: please take care! Get them out of the direct sun, put them somewhere cool and if they show any signs of dehydration or slumpy behaviour PLEASE do the following: get a iceblock (you know the ones that you put in an esky to keep your drinks cool, it has the protective plastic stuff round it. I do not mean ice cubes…that would make a terrible mess…lol), put a teatowel around the iceblock and place it in the cage where your bunny is …in no time you will see that the bunny will move to the strange object, sniff it and then gently lie belly down to COOOL DOWN…lol If the bunny doesn’t seem to move on its own accord, please pick it up gently and just lie it next to or on top of the iceblock.
