How to Keep and Care for Pet Dustbunnies

Bored out of your mind? Or are you just plain Crazy? Then listen up. I will give you all the information need to keep and care for a pet dustbunny. Since no one else had the time to create a page about this topic. anyways here is the info. Enjoy!


1. Find your dustbunny(s). Their natural habitat refers to dry, cozy places like under sofas, mattresses and vents from a dryer. The best place to adopt a dustbunny is at laundrymats. (This is like heaven to them.) Cotton balls work wonders for neat freaks.

2. You'll want to rid him/her/it of D.M. a common disease that new born dust bunnies get. They are called dust mites.

3. Dunk your dustbunny in water, or for a more safer way, peroxide.

4. Don't worry, dustbunnies are like 20% air so you don't have to worry about drowning them!

5. Dry it off on a window pane, or with a blow dryer.

6. Give a name and a habitat. I'd prefer a shoe box lined with felt and old cloth.


* Being a dustbunny breeder, I have discovered the secret of multi-colored dustbunny coats! Simply let them live on felt that is the desired color!

* Don't forget to feed your dustbunny! They like pocket lint and weaker and smaller dust bunny brethren. (Unfortunately yes, dustbunnies are cannibals.)

* Wash your dustbunny about every 1-2 weeks to prevent more dust mites.

* The best way to keep dust mites away is to keep a moth ball in its habitat or a line of bugspray.


* You cannot kill all the dustmites and scabies on or in a dust bunny so be sure to wash your hands after handling these exotic pets.

* I warn all people who have or have had any allergic symptoms due to dusty particles.

 Things You'll Need

* Dustbunny or Cotton Ball (whichever you prefer)

* Shoe box for a habitat

* Food: pocket lint, bits of cloth, or shreds of felt
