I absolutely completely understand that Rabbits must have an intake of around 80% (or more) of hay in his diet. I have tried multiple times and I am beginning to wonder if he even knows how to eat the hay.
He isn't my rabbit, but my mother's. I'm going to be very blunt here but she is the type of person who will get a pet onsite without researching anything into it. In her eyes, a rabbit is an easy peasy animal. All she feeds him is pellets. Unhealthy dried bits of corn, etc pellets.
It is excruciatingly frustrating telling her about how important it is, but all she has to say is she pities the poor rabbit for me trying to only feed him hay and questions why there are pellets for rabbits in the first place. Sigh. I just feel so hopeless and frustrated. She may as well view him as a dog. "Give him so pellets and he'll be fine."
So, now that you know what's kind of the main issue here, I want to encourage and wean off the pellets but also if my rabbit did forget, how do I provide/appetize the hay to him?
