    Anyone have rabbits who will drink from a pet fountain? The kind generally marketed for cats. My buns do not like water bottles. They do however loooooooove the gravity waterers, and drink much, much when we use those. The downfall of standing water is that the buns step in the bowls, shead, the bowl gets loaded with hair .... and of course thats a very bad thing. These guys are all about 3lbs, so the bowl has to be low so they can get to it.
    Thx

    I've never tried a fountain before. My rabbit uses both water bottles and will drink out of a dog bowl. I'm not sure if a fountain is a good idea, because they continuously circulate water over and over again. If your rabbits are shedding really bad the hair might clog and damage a fountain. May not be worth it for that reason. However If there was a way to keep the hair out and if you can find a cheap one on sale (tester) might be worth a try.
