Hey /an/, I'm a rabbit owner of just a few months, and today, mine is acting a little bit strange. She is in a very good mood, but isn't taking interest in her pellets at all. She will eat hay and some greens when offered, but I haven't seen her go for them on her own. She is going to the bathroom and drinking water regularly.

I noticed that my roommate had refilled her food bowl while I was out last night, and she had emptied out what I gave her that morning. This morning, the food bowl from last is still not empty. Should I be worried about this? Again, she IS drinking and using the bathroom regularly.

Just a little update on her; I dumped out her pellets and placed hay in her bowl instead, and she seems to be more interested in actually eating.

Is she pooping regularly? What are they like?

She seems to be, and her droppings don't seem to be out of the ordinary in terms of quantity. They're not runny or anything, if that's what you're asking.

If a rabbit has a sufficient supply of leafy greens (the only type of lettuce that should be given is romaine) and an unlimited supply of hay then they may not need to eat pellets at all. Pellets are generally formulated for weight gain (i.e. to be fed to rabbits being raised for meat or fur). You should always have some pellets available to your rabbit, but if their nutritional needs are being met elsewhere then don't be alarmed if the pellets are rarely eaten.

Your rabbit is like, the opposite of mine. I give him tons of hay but he doesn't like to eat anything but oats and pellets

since this is a rabbit thread, how do I tell if he's happy?

I took a picture of my rabbit and I think he looks happy
