Bad Bunny, Good Bunny

Understanding your rabbit is the first step to encouraging behavior you want to see.

By Lucile Moore, Ph.D., and Kathy Smith

Bad Bunny, Good BunnyBy nature, bunnies do things that upset their people. They chew. They don’t know the difference between their wooden chew toy and your antique desk; between the phone book you gave them to destroy and the chemistry textbook your son left on his bedroom floor; or between the towel lining their cage and the designer sweater your daughter carelessly draped over a chair.

Have you ever looked carefully at the mass of cords that keeps us connected to our high-tech world? Notice how much it resembles the underbrush you see in a wooded area. Given access to the cords in your office, your rabbit will do exactly what it would do in the wild — begin methodically chewing through the tangle!

Do you accept articles for your magazine? I have a great one for you---a portion appeared in my column for a local newspaper and I received the most feedback in 8 years.
