next doors rabbits keep coming in my garden

my next door neighbours have two big rabbits and they let them run freely around their garden. As rabbits do they have dug many holes under the fence and keep coming into my garden. Not only have they dug these holes messing up my garden but there are now rabbit droppings all over my lawn. I have two cats and am really worried about my cats attacking the rabbits or even them attacking my cats, as they are large rabbits. I have an 8 week old son and with this gorgeous weather we want to go outside and sit on the lawn and play, I can't do that with poo everywhere!

So rant over but I need some advice about what to do now, we don't particularly get on with our neighbours and have had a few problems with them in the past about our shared drive. I don't really want to confront them and cause an argument, what should I do?

I am a rabbit owner. My rabbits also run free in the garden. I think your neighbours are being really inconsiderate and its totally reasonable to expect them to do something about it.I have put paving stones over burrows our rabbit dug if I felt they would end up accessing the neighbours gardens, and given them huge piles of earth elsewhere to encourage them to dig in more suitable places.
I'm not sure how you approach it with your neighbours. But yes leaving your gate open is one way. I keep our gate padlocked so that no one can call and leave it open accident, so I would hate to think my rabbit could get into an open garden and be lost.
