Me and my boyfriend Jack recently got his son Taylor a rabbit as Taylor loves animals, especially cuddly and fluffy ones. He does already have a goldfish but he's started to get bored of her (sounds harsh!) so we decided to get a slightly larger but still reasonably small and easy to look after pet and settled on a grey lop eared rabbit called Rosie who we rescued from a local animal shelter. She's very placid and although shy/doesn't do alot, is great with Taylor.
One of the items we got before getting Rosie (along with the cage etc) was this food bowl. We wanted something simple but didn't want anything that she could chew as i'd done research on the internet and discovered that apparently rabbits chew alot, so plastic woudn't be ideal. This bowl is ceramic so is not chewable (she does knaw it a tiny bit but only when she's bored, so we try to let her run in the garden as much as possible). From the little bit of knawing a patch of the paint work has come away exposing a bit of white, crumbly ceramic but not alot of damage has been done.
The bowl was £2.40 from an online pet accessory retailer, Pet Net Shop. This is in my opinion a good price as the bowl is very sturdy, generous in size and is the type of item to last quite a while without needing replacing. The bowl is a beige/brown colour and very simple. It has 'Rabbit' in raised writing on the front which is the same colour as the rest of the bowl so blends in.
This bowl holds around 2 handfuls of rabbit food and can also be used for water. It is easy to either wipe with a damp cloth or wash in the sink, and i've also washed it in the dishwasher a few times. Rosie has taken to pooing in her bowl so the fact it's so easy to keep clean is a big plus side and helps keep her living space hygenic and not smelly. The only (very minor) downside is if you drop this bowl (accidently) it will smash, but obviously most people will be aware of this due to the fact it's a ceramic bowl!
We have had this bowl for 7+ months now and it's a good, solid bowl. It doesn't slide about while Rosie eats and is overall good value for money as i have a feeling it will last for absolute years.
