Monday sees the start of this year’s rabbit awareness week in the UK, which runs from 23rd May 2011 until 29th May 2011.

Each year RAW picks a specific theme, and this year focuses on Rabbit Behaviours.

This year we’ve not planned any major events around RAW due to conflicting diaries (we’ll hopefully be in a position to become more actively involved next year), but we do intend to support the campaign online with a daily blog running throughout the week and lots of tips & advice on Facebook & Twitter.

In our experience, we so often meet rabbits that sadly don’t get the opportunity to fully display their natural behaviour because of the conditions they’re being kept under – no company, no space, no stimulation, wrong diet, limited exercise. We’re looking forward to another opportunity to share some advice and experience of the flip-side of this and help you all get the best out of your pet rabbits.

If you have any questions or topics you’d be particularly keen for us to cover during the week, email them to us or post them onto facebook and we’ll do our best to pick them up during the week.

In the meantime, checkout the Rabbit Awareness Week website for further details, including events that may be happening in your area. Participating vets will be offering free health clinics and various pet stores are getting involved with information and fun days.
