08:51 am - Clipping my bunny's nails
The other day I tried to clip my bunny's nails since they've been getting kind of long and sharp...yeah he didn't like that too much.  Took me an hour to do all 4 paws and earned me a bunch of scratches due to when he was trying to struggle away.  Plus he was pissy at me for the rest of the day X:

Anyone else have tried to clip nails on a bunny?  How'd you do it without getting turned into a scratching post?  And how often should I be doing it?

On that note, I think I have discovered that my bunny's a female XDD

Here's me assuming you keep your bunny indoors in a cage -

There's no set 'how often' time, just when it looks like it needs its claws trimmed (all of mine were outside bunnies, so we didn't need to very often - the cats, however, get theirs done every two weeks or so [even though they're also outside animals, for the most part])

As for avoiding scratches - personally I would've started clipping when you got the rabbit, just so it was used to it and didn't put up much of a fight. However, you can also wrap it snugly in a towel and just tug out whatever paw you need to get at. It also helps if you have another person there - either to hold the rabbit or to do the clipping.

My rabbits were both male. Maybe gender plays a role?
