My housemates and I have two rabbits, and right now they are going mad. They are hopping around doing their bunny things, but every few minutes or so one of them will do some unusually energetic succession of hop-things, while changing direction in the air. What is up with them?<br><br>
I am wondering if it has something to do with them wearing off excess energy. We let them roam free whenever one of the housemates is home and able to watch them, which usually amounts to at least five hours a day. However, 19 hours a day is still a long time to spend in a cage... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
Edit: I should probably mention that they are foster rabbits, so we don't know them very well yet.

Oh, I'm so relieved; weird seizure thing is exactly what they are doing! Our reason for fostering bunnies was to make them comfortable and happy, so I'm overjoyed. Guess they are all settled in and that we are doing an okay job as rabbit foster parents <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

You should take a video of them doing that and post it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> It sounds funny and adorable!

Haha, it was for selfish reasons, but I agree, fostering is great. We are all university students, and can't really commit to caring for an animal long-term. However, being a house of animal-loving veg*ns without any pets was not so great. We needed some animals to love personally, and there were animals who needed some love. It's just such a perfect solution! And yes, Jessica, it is adorable. I'll see what I can do about a video <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> yep just means they're happy and having fun. My bunny still binkies everyday and he's about seven now, when he was younger he did it all the time, running around and flicking his legs and then stopping really suddenly - it's so cute!

One of the cutest things ever, if you ask me. I love watching <a href="http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bunny+binky&aq=f" target="_blank">videos</a> of buns binkying but I can get carried away and could honestly spend hours just watching bunny binks. I still squeal when my buns do it and we've had them for 3 years. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
But when I first saw a binky, it was from my girl Basil. I thought there was something wrong with her and she might have been a little <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:"> in the head. Then I looked it up and saw it just meant they're happy and was definitely relieved, haha.
