  • Timothy Hay in Australia

    Hay should make up 80% of a rabbit's diet. Many online articles refer to timothy hay as a staple in the diet of rabbits, which is the case in the US. However, as the climate isn't suitable, timothy hay generally isn't grown in Australia so is mainly imported and available for purchase in bags, which can become quite expensive. As a result, in Australia, most bunny owners use local produce (e.g. oaten, meadow, rye, or teff hay) to make up the bulk of what they feed their rabbits, which is more affordable and can be purchased in bales. However, if you are going to purchase timothy hay in Australia, there are generally 4 brands available. Oxbow Peters Burgess Alfalfa King We have found that if you shop around and buy them on sale, all four brands can be purchased for $20-$25 per kilogram. You can see a quick comparison of 3 of the brands available in the photo. Please note the Oxbow sample came from a 4kg bag, the Burgess sample came from a 1kg bag of 'Excel Feeding Hay with Dandelion and Marigold', which is made up of 98% timothy hay, and the Peters sample came from a 1kg bag of timothy hay imported from the US, which is completely different to their timothy & rye hay blend that is grown in Australia. We like using timothy hay in our treat toys because our bunnies love it and it isn't their normal everyday hay, which makes it feel like a treat whilst remaining very healthy. References

  • Our Willow & Apple Products

    In Australia the term 'organic' can be used on a product irregardless of how it was produced without any legal consequences. We use apple and willow from Loriendale Orchard, which is a small family run farm just outside Canberra and is #certifiedorganic so you can be certain that no pesticides have been used. We restock every few weeks, during which the #applechew sticks you ordered from China are still making their way here. You might find silica gel packs in your order because its still fresh so best to keep well ventilated and somewhere cool. We have endeavoured to use every bit of produce because we think it is that good and have incorporated it into our #bunnytoys. Anything leftover is then vacuumed by our b-boys.

  • Rosewood Small Pet Toys to Avoid

    We received someone else's order and got to see some of the products from Rosewood that we'd only ever before seen in photos. Although I was pleasantly surprised that the products were larger than I envisioned, I am sad to report that my suspicions were confirmed. There was so much unnecessary glue all over the toys, which can cause intestinal blockages and potentially be fatal to rabbits. I wanted to write a bit more about the danger of glue but that will have to come later as I've seen so many stores recently start stocking these products and thought it important to warn about these toys in hopes of preventing them being bought and endangering more bunnies. Please note this is not an exhaustive list. Carrot Dream Catcher Loofa Hoola Corn Rattle Roller Loofa Toss 'n' Treat Roller Bunny Fun Tree

  • Product Information | Bless Their Cottontails

    Safety General Safety Policy We take the utmost care in selecting our products, with each product being thoroughly assessed before becoming available for sale. All materials we use in making our handmade products are non-toxic and are generally accepted as safe for pet rabbits. Our products are tested by our own bunnies and we would never sell products that we considered unsafe. However, we are also aware that bunny owners will have varying opinions on what is safe so we list all materials used in our handmade products so you know exactly what you are buying. Colour Toy Parts We colour parts using non-toxic human grade food safe dyes for all colouring we do in house. For customers who prefer toys be made without colour, simply leave a note when ordering. Glue We do not use any glue in the production of our handmade products. Glue, including 'non-toxic' glue, is dangerous in toys for rabbits because it may cause an obstruction, which is potentially fatal. Toy Safety We celebrate every bunny is unique so products that are appropriate for one bunny, might not be suitable for another. When choosing toys for your bunny, please factor in their size and play style. With regard to products that we handcraft ourselves, we are more than happy to discuss any aspect of the production process as well as any materials. Furthermore, we can tailor our products to better suit your pets' needs. We often get requests to customise our products to suit other small pets such as guinea pigs and birds and are happy to oblige but do not have the knowledge and experience to advise on safety in relation to any pets other than rabbits. ​​ In any case, no toy is 100% safe and we recommend supervision, particularly for new toys, and regularly checking for safety hazards that may develop from wear and tear.
