All my pets, Barnaby included, are pretty spoiled. But it's been quite awhile since I last bought rabbit toys. Homemade toys are cheap; many of them can be made with common household items that would probably end up being discarded anyways. They're a great option for destructive rabbits, because they are affordable and easy to replace! If you're looking for fun new toy for your furry friend, consider checking out these bunny approved homemade toy ideas!

Most of Paw Print's long time readers probably won't be surprised when I say that I have a love-hate relationship with flea products. I hate the idea of using potentially dangerous chemicals in my home, especially on my pets. When Kit was a puppy I decided not to use flea products on him. Until, that is, he got fleas for the first time.
We quickly learned that Kitsune, among his many other allergies, is allergic to flea bites. Just a couple of flea bites sends him into an itching frenzy. He bites and scratches at himself so much that he bleeds, his fur falls out, and his skin gets covered in irritating scabs. Poor pup! Obviously those fleas had to go, and fast. Over the years I've tried quite a few all natural products/remedies to prevent and eliminate fleas, but in the end always ended up resorting to using spot on flea products from our vet. I hate putting pesticides on Kit, but, for his sake, need a flea product that works. ...continue reading Our First Impressions of FleaHex All Natural Flea Control
How crazy is it that 2016 is already half way over? Monday was officially the first day of summer, although it's already been feeling like summer here for quite awhile. There are only 185 days left until Christmas, for those of you keeping count. In the crazy city we live in, that pretty much means it's time to start putting up Christmas decorations. Seriously, I walked by a house yesterday with Christmas lights up! ...continue reading Happy Summer
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! Happy belated Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there. My fiance, the Paw Pack's dad, has been sick for the past couple of days. Luckily over the weekend he finally started feeling better.
The dogs always get so excited when the mail man delivers a box for them. Last week we received our June Pet Treater box and really the timing couldn't have been any better. I've been having to work extra hours, and with my fiance being sick, we've been pretty boring lately. The dogs very much appreciated a box full of goodies. ...continue reading June 2016 Pet Treater Review
Our beautiful Miss Poppet passed away on December 17th, 2015, 6 months ago today. It's always heartbreaking to loose a pet. Poppets loss, for me, was all the more devastating due to the fact that we had her here with us for only a short time. We started fostering her on September 23rd, 2014, and officially adopted her just a few days later. In September of 2015 we celebrated her 1st "gotcha day" here with us, not knowing at the time that she would be gone just a few months later. ...continue reading 6 Months Without Poppet
5 years ago yesterday (June 14th) I was overjoyed to have been able to watch my Leopard gecko, Miyuki, hatch from her egg. My other female gecko, Aurora, is Miyuki's mother. Aurora laid Miyuki's egg on April 24th, 2011, and after incubating for 52 days Miyuki blessed us all with her presence. Miyuki's egg wasn't the only one Aurora laid, but it was the only one that ever hatched. ...continue reading Happy 5th Birthday To Miyuki
For most dog owners putting a collar on your dog is something so common place that you often times don't even think much about doing it. Collars and leashes can save lives, keeping pets away from dangers such as traffic and other animals, and they can be central to helping lost pets find their way home again. But what a lot of dog owners don't always realize, or realize too late, is that collars can also be dangerous. ...continue reading Dog Collar Safety
Did you know that rabbits can tolerate cold weather much easier than they can tolerate heat? With the temperatures on the rise around much of the country, it's important to make sure you protect your rabbits from the summer heat. ...continue reading Protecting Your Rabbit From The Summer Heat
I've probably mentioned this before, at least in passing. When Kit was a puppy he developed the nightly ritual of chewing for awhile before going to sleep. It gives him something to do while the rest of us are in bed, and it seems to help him to relax before heading to sleep himself. He really seems to enjoy his relaxing chew time. So much so that often times if I give him a chewie during the day, he'll stash it away and not actually chew on it until bedtime. ...continue reading Kitsune’s Nightly Chew
