Rabbits and guinea pigs show even more subtle signs to cats when it comes to fear but this doesn’t mean bonfire night isn’t a distressing and frightening time for them as well. You can really help your furry friend by making a few simple changes to their environment which will help make them as calm and comfortable as possible.
Signs to look out for include:
- Stamping their back legs
- Staying motionless
- Attempting to escape
- Grinding their teeth
- Refusal to eat - this can be very dangerous in rabbits!
