Binky Day for rabbits. June 1st 2012
10:50pm Thursday 31st May 2012 in News
Binky Day on June 1st ... but what is a binky, you may ask?
A binky is what rabbits do when they are allowed to free run, and is an expression of pure joy. Most people know how dogs and cats express their happiness and their need for daily exercise, but sadly for rabbits, as the 3rd most popular pet - yet the most neglected in the UK - the rabbit binky is far less well known.
So, to raise awareness of the binky, and the need for owners to ensure that their rabbits have a proper environment in which they can run, jump, dig, rear up and of course ... binky, the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund is holding its first 'Binky Day' on June 1st.
There are lots of binky photos on the RWAF Facebook wall (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Rabbit-Welfare-Association-and-Fund/191449507147 ), posted by owners who know what rabbits need to live full and contented lives - please take a look and, to find out more about providing the correct environments for rabbits, also have a look at the website: http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/ahutchisnotenough.htm
