Walking rabbits...



Since these cute little fluffy things arrived on Christmas morning we've been wanting to buy some leads and harnesses so that they can have some walks outside (apparently pet rabbits do need to have lots of exercise) without getting eaten by roaming cats or lost by inattentive children.

I was rather horrified to find that a small harness and lead set would cost well over $50 in our local pet shop - and we wanted two.

My ever so D.I.Y. husband was adamant that we could make our own - so we took the plunge and check these out... two very pink harness/lead sets for two very happy bunnies, and for under $5 per set.

Miffy & Cookies are super pleased...

  5. ahhh yes, I have memories of chasing 10 baby rabbits (the size of tennis balls) around the backyard.
    Once they are loose, they are fast. REAL fast. However you could look at it as exercise, but sounds like your hubby created the better option. Good plan! :)
