While i was searching for my DIY Littertray Idea photos i shared in a local forum, i found a lot of Shiro’s photos in that forum too…

My post on 10 March 2010. I believe i haven’t upload these photos in my blog before :

Who is more handsome?

Of course la my 'Si Budak Bucuk' πŸ˜€

We miss u, Budak Bucuk!

A new rabbit owner was asking me about my bunnies littertray. So i have to dig some photos i shared in one of the local forum i joined last 3 years.

I have 12 bunnies in 10 separate cages in the Rabbit Room. I cant afford buying expensive littertray with grill on top, so I DIY them myself.

These are what u need for your DIY littertray :
♦ Cheap plastic trays, RM2-3 each from Kedai RM2 or HappyHome Shop nearby.
♦ Wiremesh/net. U can easily get it from hardware shop, RM6-8/meter. 1 meter can make 6 littertrays depend on the tray’s size.
♦ Wire cutter to cut the wiremesh/net

Cut the wiremesh. Make it bigger than the littertray.

Bend the each end of the wiremesh. This is to prevent your bunny from step into their urine.

Taraaaaaa! A simple littertray with grill on top! Easy rite?

I don’t use any litter material or bedding in the littertray.But if u’re using bedding material like Woodypet, u can use a wire net and put it on top of the bedding to prevent the bedding from kick out of the tray.

To maintain the littertray to be as clean as new : Soak the littertray with vinegar for 10-15 minutes once a week or at least 2 weeks once to get rid the urine stain. Then scrub and wash with mild detergent πŸ™‚

Alfie’s Vet Appointment

Posted: March 18, 2011 in Inside The Playpen

Alfie’s dental appointment with Dr L from Hill Park Veterinary, Kota Kemuning. We were supposed to take him for teeth trimming. And since he is not neutered yet, we decided to snip him too πŸ™‚

The appointment was on 27 Feb 2011. I was about to write about this appointment a few days later, but was too busy with some works and have not much time to make a long post.

Here is Alfie’s handsome look, a few hours before the long journey.

Well-groomed bunneh!

I gave him 1ml of Nutri-drops multivitamin.

I make the grumpy bunny swallow it all πŸ˜€

Knowing that he will not drink and eat during the stressful and long journey, I gave him about 0.5mg (2cm) of Benebac.

A must have 1st aid kit! Benebac Probiotic πŸ˜€

I also want to thank my online friend who helped me get my first aid kit from a vet in Singapore. Thanks a lot Cecilia Leong! And thanks to the vet from The Joyous Vet, Singapore :mrgreen:

Nice and cute paperbag from TJV..

What is inside the paperbag? Taraaaa….!

Electrolyte for the bunnehs~

RidWind Baby Drops Simethicone from Guardian! Finally!!

And i always make sure i have at least a pack of Oxbow Critical Care and other treats at home.

Critical Care and treats for emergency.

We drove off from Penang at 4am in the morning and reach Kl at 8.30am. The vet had an emergency in that morning. We met her at 11.30am. She briefed us about the procedure, and it took her about 45 minutes to done the surgery.

I was sooo nervous till i forgot to snap photo during the Penang to KL journey and inside the clinic.

After the surgery, we waited for another 45minutes to see Alfie’s progress before took him home.

Here is the photo i snapped on the way home.

My good boy

I have a video too:

And this is the photo of Alfie soon as we reached home.

Settling down himself

The good news is, Alfie didn’t show any sign of pain n stress due to the surgery at all. Unlike the other 4 bunnies i neutered in Penang. I couldn’t see any suture sticking out at his sacks. Different method compared to the ones we did on Dino, Mocha, Maxie and Achilles maybe. But of course the next day we found the sacks swollen, but now they slowly shrinking and getting smaller.

Swollen sacks, the next day after the surgery

The sacks are getting smaller and soon they will be gone πŸ™‚

Alfie would like to thanks all who pray for our journey to KL πŸ™‚

Healthy bunny is a happy bunny πŸ˜€

Luv ya~ β™₯

When Mocha showed signs of sickness – not eating, not drinking, pooping or peeing, I couldn’t help myself for being so sad and worried. When i reached home after work last Thursday, i’m getting more panicked to see Mocha was not getting any better. So i gave Mocha another 2ml of simethicone.

And thank God after 1-2 hours later, I saw Mocha hopped into his littertray and…. yayyy i saw some poops!!! Bunny people are weird people eh? πŸ˜‰

Can u see what i see? πŸ˜€

Closed up! :mrgreen:

He also took a bite on a slice of apple, munched his pellets, and take a raisin from my hand.

Yayyy! Yayyy! YAYYY!

And who is more happier than me? Mickybell of course!

Loving couple

And here is the video of a happy bunny who just recovered from his sickness πŸ™‚

Thanks for all the positive vibes sent by my friends in Facebook πŸ˜€
Luv ya! β™₯ β™₯ β™₯

Update On Mocha

Posted: March 10, 2011 in Inside The Playpen

1.30pm, I reached home.

No improvement on Mocha. He is sitting on his littertray in a hunch position. Eyes half close. Nose is not twitching.

I gave another 1ml of Simethicone, 1ml of Nutri Drops and a few pumps of diluted Critical Care.

Be strong, my boy...

Vibes For Mocha

Posted: March 10, 2011 in Inside The Playpen

My Mocha is not feeling well. I just noticed he is not eating this morning. He just sits quite at one corner, doesn’t make any move. Not even twitching his nose.

Normally when i refill the hay rack, all the bunnies will greet me at their door. But not Mocha today.

I took him out and put him in the playpen. But he just sat quiet on littertray until i moved him back to the cage. No poops in the playpen’s littertray. This is really not a good sign.

Mocha is not eating, drinking, peeing or pooping 😦

I offered him a slice of papaya and his favourite treat, Show Rabbit Feed. He shows no interest. He ignored his favourite raisin too.

No hard tummy. I took him close and listened to his tummy. Some gurgly sound. Stomach upset? Gas maybe?

Luckily we already have the Simethicone in hands. I gave 1ml of RidWind Simethicone at 9am just now. Not forgetting 1.5cm of Benebac Probiotic and a few pumps of Oxbow Critical care. I’m supposed to feed him another doses os Simethicone at 10am and 11 am. But i have to go to work. So i’ll come back during lunch time to feed the medicine again.

Mickybell is doing a great job, grooming and licking Mocha’s face. Giving some moral support for his brother’s speed recovery i guess.

Mommy is soooo worry. Please get well soon, baby..

I’m really worried about Mocha. Please send him some positive vibes. Hope he’ll get back to himself very very soon 😦
