Bunny overload

Baby buns - There are a number of baby buns appearing recently looking for new homes. If anyone is interested, please check out our adoption page. If you would like to adopt a bunny, please contact the bunny carer on the advertisement. BOING recommends indoor housing for bunnies as it's the safest and happiest environment for humans to bond with their bunny.

Rosie - Our funny and gorgeous holiday bun, Rosie, went home today with his adoring family. Rosie is the most charismatic bunny I've come across since Pancake. Very funny and oozing personality and he will be missed at our house, even though he was only with us for two weeks. Hi Rosie if you're on the computer!! (he's very bright and can probably log on by himself!).

Gus & Angelina - I moved Angelina over next to Gus for a week to see how they would get along but I'm not sure if it's a match made in heaven. I ended up moving them all back to their original spots since Annabelle looked very depressed in her new spot. Angelina also looked unhappy at being in such an open spot. In the end I moved them back and they were instantly happy again.

Holiday buns

Stuey - Our cutie little holiday boy went home with his family on Sunday. He is an adorable little guy who was the perfect holiday guest and we'll miss him. However, it's fabulous to know he is so loved by his family.

Rosie - We have a new holiday bunny staying with us for two weeks called Rosie. Rosie is a boy and he is quite feisty (a bit of a swap from Stuey). Having Rosie stay reminds me of how out of control our Peanut was when he came here. Rosie is not desexed and he's very "enthusiastic" when he's out having a run. It is very interesting to see the differences between an undesexed male and an undesexed female. When Angelina is out having a run (separately of course from any other bunnies) she doesn't have that instinct to mate. With Rosie, I feel terrible for the poor little guy that he just can't relax. His breathing is always fast and he can't lie down for more than a couple of seconds before he's off and racing around again at full speed. He nips, grunts, circles, pulls pant legs and is a bit scary when he runs at you full speed and leaps into your lap before jumping off again and racing off up the hallway.

HAPPY 2005!!

Christmas & New Year - I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas & New Year! We had a lovely time with lots of pressies for all the bunnies. Each one had a stocking and they received fun things to play with - seagrass mats, throw balls & treat balls.

Missing survey results - Unfortunately I missed retrieving a bunny story from the survey (I have a limited time to retrieve them before they are locked). Whoever posted their story, please post again!!! I love receiving stories and publishing them. Sorry about that!!

Shelters - After Christmas there are always a number of animals that are dumped at shelters for so many reasons. As a New Year's resolution, take some time to donate, adopt, help out or just take a moment to think of the animals that end up at shelters and how you may help in the future.

Boarding bunny - Our little guest, Stuart, has been having a lovely time bouncing around and running madly in our loungeroom. He's such a cutie and very gentle. I thought our two bunnies, Peanut & Lavender, who are sharing the same room, would be very interested in him but so far the closest they've come to saying hello has been from the end of the mat. Stuart has been fascinated by the other two and they all keep an eye on each other but are happily just admiring each other from a distance.

2005 - Looking forward to the next year, we hope that 2005 will be the best year ever. I don't know what the future holds but I plan to get more information out about companion rabbits and see where the ideas take me.
