We've been hoping you would join us,
because we are catching up with some cuddles with Biscuit.
-Yes, we are. She's so cute!
-I know. I know.
Lots of animals make brilliant pets and we love meeting you and yours.
We definitely do. What are your plans today, Rory?
I'm glad you asked, Ferne. I'm off to meet some new friends,

Say bye-bye. Bye!

Today I'm in Dalgety Bay to meet Charlie and his rabbits.
Let's go and find them!
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK!
-And you must be Alfie.
-And you must be Mum.
-I am. Hi, Rory.
-Would you like to come and see our rabbits?
-I would love to, let's go!
-Wow! So this must be where your rabbits live.
-It's impressive, isn't it?
Rabbits love to run, jump, hide, and stretch right out,
so it's really important that they've got lots of space.
-You've done a good job of that, haven't you?
-Have you got a special name for this?
-A rabbit hutch.
-I think it's more like a rabbit palace, don't you?
-There's a castle, is there a throne in there?
-So, how many rabbits do you have?
-And what are their names?
-Ivy, Minty, and Leila.
-Who is who?
-The white one is Minty,
the reddish one is Ivy, and that one up there is Leila.
Wow, they are beautiful names and beautiful rabbits.
-Do you know what sort of rabbits they are?
I'm very impressed that you know that.
There are lots of different breeds of rabbit and mini rex is just one.
We can tell these guys are mini rex because they've got
very soft, velvety fur and sticky-up ears.
Let's see your sticky-up ears and your rabbity teeth.
That's very good.
I'm very pleased that you've got three rabbits,
because rabbits are social animals,
which means they like to live in a group,
and if they're alone they can get lonely, so that is excellent.
-Are they friends?
-Do they play together?
They play tig and chase each other in the hutch.
-Chase each other! A bit of tig.
These are some cool rabbits. What do you love most about them?
When they're in my living room, they jump onto my knee
-and they make me all cosy.
That's so lovely, isn't it?
Well, I think your rabbits are fantastic
and this is a serious rabbit palace.
Ferne, can you give us some rabbity facts about our new friends here?
-'Of course, Rory!'
'One - there are lots of different types of rabbits.
'Some are big and some are small.
'Two - baby rabbits are called kittens or kits,
'and they are born with their eyes closed and without fur.'
'Three - rabbits' eyes are on the side of their head
'and this helps them to see things all around them.
'Four - rabbits are known for having very long ears.
'They help them to hear danger,
'and they also help to keep them cool.'
Rabbits can be brilliant pets,
but they need lots of love, care and attention to keep them happy.
What do you do to look after your rabbits, Charlie?
-I clean their house every day.
-It sounds like a lot of work.
-I think I can help you today. Shall we do that?
-But where are the rabbits?
-My mum put them in the rabbit run.
Oh, yeah, there they are. Hey, guys! Right, we should get started.
-What are we going to do first?
-Put on our gloves.
Right, let's get to work.
-OK. So, will we sweep all of this up first?
Excellent. Let's get this nice and clean for them.
Rabbits love to feel safe, so this is perfect for them
because there are lots of places for them to hide.
-How are you getting on down there?
I'm finding a few poos up here. Just sweeping them up.
-Oh, it is heavy. Right, let's get it all in here.
-We have to clean out their beds.
-Of course we do.
Hay is not only food for them, but it can be bedding as well,
so make sure you keep their feeding and sleeping area separate.
-Let's get this sorted. Do you want to grab that one over there?
Great. There we go.
-Right, let's put this in the bin.
Right, well done.
Look, the rabbits are doing fine in their pen for now.
-What have we got here?
-Their bedding and hay.
So we're going to fill these up with bedding and hay?
Right, let's bring the bedding here.
You fill up these ones, I'll do this big one. Spread that out.
Nice one. Let's get this hay in.
There we go.
-We need to save some for the bedding as well, don't we, in there?
Let's pop them back in.
-This will be nice and comfortable for them.
-It definitely will be.
So, who sleeps where, Charlie?
Minty sleeps there,
Leila sleeps in there,
-and Ivy sleeps in there sometimes and down there.
-Nice and cosy.
OK, that's the bed sorted, what do we need to do now?
-Fill up their water bottle.
-Good thinking. There you go.
There we go. That looks good.
-There you go.
Excellent. Very good.
-That water will help the hay go down, won't it?
So, what do you feed your rabbits?
-Grass, rabbit nuggets and special-treat carrots.
You know a lot about rabbits, don't you?
Eating grass and hay helps to keep rabbit tummies healthy
and helps to wear down their teeth, which are constantly growing.
Things like carrot should only be a special treat because
-they've got natural sugars in them. Shall we give them some food?
Fill these up. Just a wee bit, isn't it?
OK, that food looks good.
So, we've got plenty of hay and bedding,
we've got water, lots of food, what do we need to do now?
Put the rabbits back in the house and wash our hands.
Of course we do. Let's go.
We've done a great job, Charlie. Your rabbits look like they love it.
-Do you have a favourite out of your three rabbits?
-Who is it?
Ivy. I like Ivy a lot, too.
We all know rabbits love to run and jump and hide,
but if Ivy could do anything, what do you think she would do?
If my pet could do anything,
she would fight crime in New York City.
She would jump from building to building
and use her very long ears to hear what was happening in the city.
She would find a giant carrot and pull it out of the ground.
CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH!
Wow! Charlie, how lucky are you to have this awesome vegetable patch
-in your garden?
-You certainly are.
-What have you got growing here?
-raspberries and kale.
-That sounds delicious.
How about we dig up some of the vegetables,
and hide them with some grass and hay,
-and see if the rabbits can find them?
-Let's get to work.
-There's some radishes in there.
-Pull them up. Let's go for it.
-Mine's a bit small.
-Look at that one! It's big, isn't it?
Now for some rocket. These leaves here.
-We just pick the leaves off.
-Do you like rocket?
Well, I do, but I don't eat it that much.
-This is going to be so fun for the rabbits.
-It definitely is.
-What will we go for now?
-A bit of kale.
-I think we can pull up the whole kale plant, don't you?
-Oh, it looks good. OK, shall we go and hide it?
-We should probably wash it first.
We've got all these vegetables now, before we hide them,
-let's wash and chop them. What do you think?
OK. Let's get to work. You wash and I'll chop.
-These have lots of soil on them.
-Yeah, give them a good wash.
So, Charlie, rabbits are herbivores,
-do you know what that means?
-They eat leaves and plants.
-Right, you can help me rip some of this up now.
Right, that's the last bit of radish.
-Shall we go and hide it?
So, do you want to put the things in the boxes?
Right, let's hide them. Now, no peeking, Minty, OK?
-I'm going to put some under this. Do you see that pink tunnel?
-I'm going to pop some in there. In that turret there.
-I'm going to put some up high.
-Yeah, up here.
So, if we put that radish in there, then we could put that there.
-Oh, and they have to pull it out?
-That is very clever.
Let's see how smart they are.
Look who found it straight away! RORY LAUGHS
-She was hiding in there.
Rabbits are very clever animals,
so hiding some leaves like this is a great way
of keeping them entertained and stopping them from getting bored,
-and it also gives them some exercise too.
-Good work, Leila.
Oh, Minty, have you found something?
-Ivy has got the one on the bridge!
-Oh, yeah! So she does.
-She knows it's in that one.
-Come on, pull it!
-She got it!
-Well done! Look!
Well done, bunnies, great work.
How clever are you? I think they've really enjoyed that.
And you know what?
I've really enjoyed meeting you and your cuddly bunnies.
-Thank you very much for having me.
My pet and me!
-Hi, Rory. You look like you've had a great day.
-What have you been up to?
-I had an awesome time.
-It was so much fun.
-Oh, fantastic. I'm just giving Sunny a brush,
-because he was a bit mucky.
-He looks spectacular!
Pets are brilliant, but remember,
you shouldn't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK.
But two pets you can definitely play with are our ours.
Go on the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.
-Thanks for joining us, we hope you've had fun too.
