January 30, 2006, 7:30 p.m. - Rabbit Crisis - The dedicated volunteers at the Buckeye House Rabbit Society are managing a rabbit hoarding situation.  20 rabbits out of 105 have been placed.  They still need volunteers to donate or help provide care, foster or adopt the remaining rabbits.  See the latest information on this crisis at Buckeye HRS Crisis Update  You will find a Wish List and the rabbits' story.  It is truly unfortunate when this happens.  (Link to article on animal hoarding by the HSUS.)

Right Now, You Can Help whether or not you live in Ohio by going to the links above and making a donation of time, money or by giving one of these rabbits a home.  Dr. Mandel, of the Lyndhurst Animal Clinic is spaying and neutering all the rabbits and has done 45!  What great people in Ohio!

Remember 85 Bunnies need your help!

 

George Lucas plans to feature a talking animated rabbit in the new Indiana Jones prequels that are in the planning stages.  The rabbit will be the pet of a six year old Indiana Jones and will be named Bo Bo Cranks.

 

Hoppy Ending for Cat....according to the BBC a bullying bunny gets a fat cat to loose weight.  Apparently, the pet cat, Benji, was so fat he couldn't get away from the family rabbit who kept jumping on him.  The vet put Benji on a diet and he lost half his body weight. (He had been twice the size of a normal cat.)  No one reported if the bunny quit jumping on the fit feline.

 

January 28, 2006, 3:00 p.m. - Hoppy News for Peter rabbit from Bermuda  -  the Boston Herald reported that a pet rabbit, Peter, flew to Boston from Bermuda for lifesaving jawbone abscess surgery.  The rabbit is only a year old and should make a full recovery.  Peter's human companion said Peter was worth it even though some people criticized her for doing all this for her bunny.  Those critical people should have met my Mr. Hops who recovered from an inoperable abscess behind his eye, pneumonia, paralysis, parasites, and more.  See Hops Story (pictured right) He was worth it.  Good for the young woman in Bermuda who wanted to save her rabbit. Here are two excellent articles on head abscesses in rabbits:  Nonsurgical Treatment of Abscesses in Rabbits and New Treatments for Abscesses

 

Miffy, the small white storybook rabbit by Dick Bruna has been a real hit in Japan since it was the Year of the Rabbit in 1999.  Even 4 years later the Japan Times reported that "adorable Miffy is still a permanent fixture in Japanese life, and she appears on a wide array of character goods from wineglasses to bathtub thermometer boats. Boyfriends are sometimes so smitten with a girl, they buy her a whole Miffy bathroom ensemble including a toilet seat cover, bathroom slippers and towels, all with Miffy prominently displayed on them."  Miffy is the creation of writer, artist, Dick Bruna, from the Netherlands.  See his website at www.miffy.com  The website contains many of his drawings that created this "Miffy Mania" in Japan.  Check out this cake created for a special Miffy promotion in a Tokyo restaurant. 

 

The Japanese company, Honda, in 2005 launched a campaign for the Element.  The commercial shown (and heard) on their website shows a rabbit having a conversation with the Element car on the ski slopes.  Plus, there is an interactive game.  Honda Element & Friends 

 

 

January 26, 2006, 8:00 p.m. Holistic Rabbits - I received a couple of emails today asking about natural treatments and home remedies for rabbits.  I keep a kit with several emergency home treatments in it for my rabbits.  Here are two links to start with (and ask your vet, too):  Rabbit Medicine Chest, Natural Health Care for Rabbits Plus, for a list of what to keep in a rabbit first aid kit try this link at the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society  (If you like the doctor bunny pictured  above go to Rabbit Doctor.)

 

Something Fishy Hoppening

A Bunny Blog reader sent me this photo of "rabbit sushi."  The ThaiAm2 Restaurant in Madeira, FL has apparently served this at Easter (not sure about the rest of the year).  Click on the photo to see a larger photo since it is truly a work of sushi art. I think a vegetarian version of this creation would be more like a rabbit.  It occurred to me that this is less fattening and healthier than all those chocolate rabbits at Easter.

 

From Japan see this wonderful home for a rabbit pictured on the left.  They aren't available in the US yet, but they do look cozy.  The website is in the Japanese language and the English translation was more hilarious than helpful. I was unable to decipher any ordering information. However, it could be inspirational for anyone who might want to make something similar. 

 

January 24, 2006, 10:00 p.m.  Bunny Found in Blue Bag. The Edmonton Journal reported just last Saturday the lop earred rabbit pictured right was found tucked away in a blue bag in a park.  The bunny was found with food and a quilt.  A man walking with his dog found the rabbit and took it home to care for temporarily.  The Edmonton Humane Society has the rabbit now and will put the bunny up for adoption.  Obviously, this was someone's pet. I cringe to think about this after rescuing pet rabbits abandoned outdoors. See Hops & Dill for two stories.  Fortunately, this rabbit was lucky enough to be discovered probably soon after being left in the park. See my list of Why Rabbits Should Never be Abandoned Outdoors

 

Pap T-Shirts From Sussex in the UK sells  rabbit t-shirts for rabbit lovers.  Just click on Bunnies & Fluffies and you will go to the bunny web page.  It's worth a look even if you don't want to wait for a t-shirt all the way from Sussex!

 

By request from readers yesterday, here is the link to the company that makes the K-9 Carts  pictured in my last blog entry below. 

 

January 22, 2006 7:00 p.m.-  Special Needs Rabbits.   After seeing so many rabbit websites with special needs rabbits, I decided to put one on as my Adoptable Rabbit of the Week.  The Vancouver Rabbit Rescue & Advocacy,  a chapter of the HRS in British Columbia, does a wonderful job of presenting these rabbits on their website. The rabbit, Hash, pictured above has a K-9 cart and enjoys his life in spite of his disabilities. See my webpage on Disabled Rabbits. Go to this link for an excellent article on Quality of Life

 

Peter Rabbit's creator, Beatrix Potter will go Hollywood via the big silver screen and has the Lakes District hopping.  According to the Northwest Evening Mail in England today, Renee Zellweger best known for her role as Bridget Jones will portray Miss Potter.  Filming will begin in April at several different locations around the Lakes District.  For more information on Beatrix Potter's books and the Lakes District where she lived see World of Beatrix Potter

 

January 20, 2006, 11:00 p.m.  Easter Starts January 2nd in Australia - A newspaper in Illwabarra Australia reported that Easter wares were being sold in stores the day after New Year's Day in the Australian city.  Apparently, "Woolworths broke out the hot crossed buns on January 2nd with Easter eggs to come later this month." Religious and concerned citizens were disgusted.  Haven't they heard of Valentine's Day down under?  I haven't seen any Easter displays since Valentine's Day has taken over Hallmark here in the US. Maybe we should celebrate Valentine's Day for rabbits like Romeo and Raindrop pictured above and ready for adoption from the San Diego House Rabbit Society  Those two deserve a loving home.

 

 Australians have the Easter Bilby, also known as the bandicoot, a marsupial and nocturnal animal with large ears like a rabbit.  It has been endangered for sometime in its indigenous home of Australia.  The introduced European rabbits (which are ancestors of all domestic rabbit breeds) are competing for the bilby's habitat.  See these online sources about bilbys in Australian Bilby and Easter Bilby.

 

By the way, if you want a personalized rabbit card for Valentine's Day or any other holiday take a look at Alison Giese Photo Creations

 

Learn how to Say Rabbit in Lots of Different Languages by visiting this webpage on the House Rabbit Society website.  Say "aloha" to your "lapaki" in Hawaiian for instance.

 

January 19, 2006 - 9:30 p.m. Fat  Rabbits -

I admit it.  I have one... an overweight rabbit, Mr. Bumble.   Bumble is a 7 year old mini-lop who isn't so "mini" anymore.  I know better and Bumble is on a diet now.  His bonded mate, Rosemary, never gains weight because Bumble eats most of the food.  I feed Rosemary Rabbit separately now. Bumble loves his food and was pushing Rosemary out of the way to get more than his share of veggies. He may be loosing his sight to cataracts, but he can always find dinner! 

 

Obesity in pet rabbits is a big problem according to my vet.  Even with all of Bumble's problems he will have a lot more medical issues sooner if he is overweight. Here are a couple of links to informative online articles on obese rabbits and how to handle the problem:  Weight Watching for Rabbits by Astrid Kruse and Obese Rabbits at Risk (pdf) by Jackie Schulman, a vet.  Remember to gradually put your bunny on a diet.  Drastic changes can be dangerous.  Only give treats of a very small bit of fruit.  Never give your rabbit any human "treats" or store bought treats.  Restrict pellets or eliminate.  Feed leafy green veggies once a day.  Hay should be made available at all times as well as fresh clean water.  And, rabbits need exercise everyday outside of a cage! 

By the way if you like the painting of the "Fat Rabbit" above see this link Karen Fincannon, Artist out of Tucker, GA.   

 

January 18, 2006 - 8:35 p.m.  On the Wild Side: The Volcano Rabbit is endangered in Mexico. This little pygmy rabbit pictured to the right lives on the slopes of 3 or 4 volcanoes within a few miles of Mexico City.  It has been reported that the Volcano Rabbit may be resistant to Viral Hemorrhagic Disease.  Genetically it is a discovery that makes the Volcano Rabbit very valuable for developing resistance in other species of rabbits.  It is endangered due to loss of habitat and overhunting.  A species of rabbit that could someday save other lagomorphs including domestic rabbits from VHD shouldn't be target practice!

 

In other medical news, the University of New Mexico is spearheading a program to create a vaccine for Tularemia which is also known as "rabbit fever."  This would be a vaccine for humans.  It is spread by the usual suspects like fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.  Rabbits and rodents are affected by it and it occurs mostly in the southwestern states. It is not life threatening if treated early with antibiotics in humans, but it can be deadly.

 

Rabbit Toothpick Holder.  Those Italian Designers are at it again.  The Italian designer Alessi created a small useful work of art.  The Bunny Blog reader who sent in this picture wasn't giving up where it can be purchased. I am also searching for a photo of an Italian pink bunny.  It is a giant soft sculpture installed on a hillside in Italy somewhere.  However, the toothpick holder is much more practical.

 

January 17, 2006 7:30 p.m. Rabbitude You can find out if your bunny has rabbitude or if you have the signs of rabbitude yourself at Signs of Rabbitude Anyone who lives with a house rabbit knows the signs are all true.  An example of Rabbitude would be a rabbit like "Fennel,"  pictured left.   Fennel is a male and has perfect litter box habits.  A beautiful black rabbit who could someday rule the warren at your house. If you live "Up North" you can adopt him from the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society in Edina (651-768-9755).

 

Take a web surfing trip to Japan to see Yuebing's Homepage and the beautiful photography of Yuebing, the rabbit.  You won't need more than sushi bar Japanese since there is enough English to understand where to click on the links to pics. You can also visit Oolong's web page from there. Oolong is the rabbit who has had many photos taken with things like cookies balanced on his (or her) head. It's different and my rabbits would never hold still for it.  But Oolong  seems to have had a very good life.  Whether or not some photos are silly most of the photography is stunning and inspired.  Domo Arigato.

 

January 16, 2006 6:33 p.m. Human-Rabbit Hybrid?  Several newspapers reported today that British scientists want to grow "human" embryos using rabbit eggs for stem cell research.  This seems very "Frankenbunny" to me.  Enough already!

 

Oakland Shelter Over run with Rabbits according to the Inside Bay Area news online today.  There are at least 40 rabbits who need loving homes.  According to the article several of these rabbits were confiscated during an illegal sale at a Coliseum Swap Meet.  The Oakland Police have jurisdiction over the Oakland Animal Services Dept. A real hero by the name of Police Sgt. Dave Cronin and his dedicated staff care for all of these rabbits.  Like Sgt. Cronin said in the article "They get rescued and now we need someone to rescue them again."   Pictured above is Otis (# 1431) a very handsome all white rabbit at the Oakland Animal Shelter.  He certainly looks like he would be a lively, happy pet.  If Otis is already adopted, don't worry, there are all shapes and sizes of rabbits waiting for homes. 

 

January 15, 2006 4:00 p.m. Check this Out - You can support the House Rabbit Society by ordering checks with your rabbit's photo at this link:

Support HRS with checks featuring your rabbit's photo
This is a great idea and you can take that to the bank!

 

One of my favorite websites on the feeding of pet rabbits is www.carrotcafe.com  They have easily digestible information on what to feed your rabbit including information on topics like:

Syringe feeding recipes, and Hay in the rabbit diet.  Also, see the FAQ on Diet  at the House Rabbit Society website which is excellent.  Hopperhome has Rabbit Diet with vegetables that guide you through the rabbit's diet.

 

You have probably heard of Will Bullas for his humorous posters of ducks, but he has a entire line of rabbit watercolor paintings like the one pictured to the left called "Harebrained."  You can find  prints and originals at his website at:

www.willbullas.com  There are several paintings of rabbits at bars like "Hare of the Dog" featuring a dog and a hare, of course.  I like the "Dust Bunny" myself.

 

January 14, 2006, 4:00 p.m.  The FUNNY BUNNY TOY COMPANY was started in 1997 by Kerry Sullivan and her two bunnies Wallace and Sophie with her first product the BUNNY BUNGALOW. (My rabbit Mr. Hops loved it.)  Since then the Funny Bunny Toy company has gone on to offer very a popular line of wooden toys like the rattler to the right.  My rabbits, Miss Rosemary & Mr. Bumble enjoy the wooden toys because they can really sink their teeth into them.  A kitty toy brought into their pen by my cat, Pele, offers endless hours of fascination, too.  However, it is better they chew on these wood toys so I buy them!   For information on why rabbits should have toys see these two articles online by the House Rabbit Society: Why is it important to provide toys? and also,

What are good bunny toys?  The Rabbit Rehome website in the UK also has a great article on making your own rabbit toys.  If I ever have the time, I will follow instructions in this article: Make Your Own Rabbit Toys about a variety of easy to make toys.

Visit the House Rabbit Network for more info on Rabbit Toys, too.

 

Holy Carrots! Someone jumped the fence with these garnishes.   Thanks to a Bunny Blog reader in New York for taking the time to share this over the carrot top garnish with everyone.

 

January 13, 2006 6:35 p.m.

BYOB (Bring your own Bunny) if you live near Goleta, California this weekend.  BUNS (Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter) will have a free class on rabbit care on January 15th at 1:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Goleta Library at 400 N. Fairview in Golet, California.  They will even have a teaching rabbit for those without a rabbit.  Email them at buns@silcom.com for more info.  Mr. Freeze & Frosty pictured above are just two of the beautiful rabbits that BUNS has available for adoption.

 

BUNS is also offering a "Clicker Training," training class on Rabbits & Guinea Pigs on February 12, 2006 at the Santa Barbara County Stray Animal Shelter.  This technique can enrich your rabbit's (or guinea pig's) life by improving communication, behavior and socializing shy animals.  There is a tuition fee and proceeds benefit BUNS.  Call 805-683-0521 or email buns@silcom.com for more info on the class.

January 12, 2006, 10:15 p.m.

A troupe of animated rabbits parody Hollywood movies on The 30-Second Bunnies Theatre Library collection online.  The "re-enactments" are about 30 seconds long. I have watched them all.  One of the "movie stars" is shown on the right.

January 11, 2006, 7:05 p.m.  Much of the email I receive asks whether or not a rabbit is sick.  I'm not a vet and it's really hard to tell from cyberspace what the symptoms mean.  However, there is an excellent article on the San Diego House Rabbit Society website called:  Is Your Bunny Sick?  I always recommend a trip to the vet because early diagnosis can save a rabbit's life and a  check-up can avoid future problems .  Also, see What's Up Doc on Hopperhome.

I love my rabbits, but I think the wedded bunny bliss pictured left hops over the line. Thanks to Melanie on the East Coast for sending this photo just for some lagomorph laughs.  I believe in bonding pairs of rabbits and adopting out rabbits as couples, but this is a first.

The North Georgia Chapter of the House Rabbit Society is planning a BunnyFest and needs volunteers.   They are also organizing a Bunny Bonding Party to be held the weekend before Valentine's Day. Visit their website for contact information:  North Georgia Chapter HRS  Now, that's a better way to "share the love" than the "harebrained" pair above!

January 10, 2006, 9:02 p.m. The Scotsman Evening News reported Monday that Domino, the rabbit, is "lucky to be alive after being found shivering in a plastic carrier bag."  The "timid black and white bunny is believed to be an unwanted Christmas present, abandoned to die....."  It goes on to say the rabbit is recovering in Balerno with the SPCA.  The SPCA hopes to find the person who dumped Domino.  Like many other rescues and shelters they are over capacity with abandoned rabbits, dogs, cats and other small animals after the holidays.

On a lighter note, if you think your rabbit is cute then visit this website: Cute Overload  The rabbits are too cute for words, but the pictures do them justice.  I like the rabbit with the cookie (left) ... just like a sweet toothed rabbit I know here at home named Mr. Basil. 

Chat About Rabbits on the House Rabbit Society Chat Room. Just click on the logo pic to the right and go there for live chat with other rabbit fans.  There is normally a moderator in the chat who can answer questions and a lot of "buneriffic" people who know rabbits.  That's where I go to ask questions.

 

I also located another chat and forum called the Lagomorph Lounge out of central New York.  Click on their blue logo to the right.  The have a Membership Map showing where their members are located throughout the world. The pic of the rabbits in New York - saying "where's the Big Apple" on the home page is very funny. 

January 9, 2006 7:00 p.m. - This big hollow Violet Rabbit is art in Italy. (See explanation of the art at Coniglio Viola.)  Looks like fun for the kids to me. And, I thought mother nature's iceberg in yesterday's blog was silly.

Bird of Paradise & other plants toxic to rabbits are listed online. The following link includes scientific and common names of plants poisonous to rabbits.  Many of the entries include the part of the plant that is toxic to rabbits. Cindy Fisher compiled this list and it is online at Larissa's Bunny Guide.

Starbucks needs to hop to it.  There is a barista out there who knows how to thrill rabbit fans. The mocha drinker who emailed me this photo didn't disclose the cafe.  However, I think it's great someone thought to take this shot (pun intended) so we could all enjoy it.

 

January 8, 2006 9:30 a.m. - Iceberg Rabbit. . . it's an iceberg photo displayed on the US Coast Guard International Ice Patrol web page.  No mention of where they found it.  If anyone knows where it is, let me know.  Looks like a cool rabbit to me! 

 

The Gallo wine family is helping restore an endangered species of wild rabbit on their 2,000 acre Faith Ranch in California.  The half dozen rabbits were released into stands of century-old oaks, cottonwoods and lush undergrowth. The rabbits were raised in captivity since their parent's home range continues to shrink due to encroaching suburbs.  Now all the little rabbits have to do is breed like rabbits.  This is what the wildlife researchers are hoping for over the next few months. Thanks Gallo Family!

After Subaru pulled the ads (thank you Subaru!) showing a pet rabbit being released in the woods, I started looking at ads featuring domesticated and wild rabbits.  I found they are just as popular in other countries as in the United States.  The ad on the left is for a cell phone company in Japan. Can you hear the rabbit saying, "Remember to get radish greens on the way home."

January 7, 2006 - 10:00 a.m.  It's a UK Kind of Day:  Jane Burton, a photographer with Warren Photographic in the UK creates beautiful photography of rabbits with other pets like the cat to the right.  Check out the website at the link above. Click on "Photographers" near the bottom of the web page and then Jane's name on the left. Right now they are not selling prints.  We should all email and encourage them to do a calendar or sell prints.

 Wallace & Gromit Movie Website  The DVD due out in February.  Not only is this movie "hare"larious, it also has a great message.  Okay, I won't give away the ending if you haven't seen it, but it is a lot of fun.  On the website which is based in the UK, there are products for sale including a cute backpack depicting "Hutch" one of the rabbits in the movie.  I was told there was a town in Dorset that does not utter the word "rabbit" since years before a crane gave way due to a large warren underneath causing a fatal accident.  The producers of the Wallace & Gromit movie removed the word "rabbit" from ads in Dorset.  The movie tagline "Something wicked this way hops" or "furry things" would be appropriate. 

January 6, 2006 - 10:30 p.m. A great website that should be an example for any community dealing with colonies of feral rabbits is Woodland Park Rabbits.  The Seattle Times reported in late December that this huge population of abandoned pet rabbits showed a "census on Nov. 30 of a mere 18 rabbits, although others likely were hiding." (The warrens are huge and probably hiding many, many more.) The round up of rabbits is being conducted during the winter.  Most of the rabbits will make their way to the Redmond Meadows Sanctuary and others will be adopted out through the House Rabbit Society  chapter in Seattle. For more information on feral rabbits see Hopperhome's web page on Feral Rabbit Colonies.

January 5, 2006 - 10:00 p.m. This past fall I learned my lop, Mr. Bumble B. Bunny (Bumble),  has cataracts and will go blind eventually.  Between myself and his bonded mate, Miss Rosemary Rabbit, Bumble will get along fine even as he looses his eyesight. Two articles available online I recommend about rabbit eye health are:  With Blossom Eyes Herta Rodina and Your Rabbit's Eye Health  by Astrid Kruse.  I also have info on disabled rabbits at Caring for a Disabled Rabbit

From Japan I received this great photo in celebration of the New Year (shogatsu or oshogatsu).  This is celebrated January 1st - 3rd.  The Chinese Year of the Rabbit is only 5 years away in 2011.  

January 4, 2006  9:00 p.m. - Just a few days ago in The Humane Society of Canada offered a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of people responsible for killing a family's pet rabbits in Gordon Head.  The family had already had four rabbits stolen in September. The HSC is serious about enforcing the law on cases like this. 

In December TV Station KDKA ran a great video online they had broadcast about a domesticated rabbit found outdoors in Westmoreland County.  The local animal shelter treated the rabbit's ears for severe frostbite and will put the rabbit up for adoption. (He looks like lavender point Californian.)  The reporter made a point about the cruelty of letting rabbits and other domesticated pets loose in the wild.  Thanks to KDKA for caring!  Remember to keep your rabbits warm this winter!

January 3, 2006 8:30 p.m. - Don't try this with your house plants.  Dutch farmers are spraying their fields in first phases of growth with American Tabasco to deter rabbits.  It works.  The Dutch animal welfare people seem happy with the spicy repellant since "It's better than going into the fields with a shotgun."  

There is a Canadian rabbit hero in Ontario.  A pet rabbit woke up a snoozing family of four so they could escape safely from a house fire a couple of months ago. 

Try this with your bathroom towels.   I was sent this photo of cruise ship bath towel origami.  If anyone has instructions for this, please send so I can publish online and we can all try it at home. However, I think I will stick with bunny slippers and leave the towel origami to cruise ships.

January 2, 2006 9:30 p.m. - My cat, Pele, made a new friend this New Year's with a Holland Lop called "Speedy".  The cat brought Speedy several kitty toys each evening.  The photo shows Pele offering his favorite toy to Speedy.  Speedy sniffed it politely.

Dogs can be heroes for rabbits like a recent story about a drowning rabbit who hitches a ride on a Labrador.  It seems the dog chased the cottontail into the water and when the rabbit started to struggle, the dog swam over.  The rabbit hopped on the dog's back for a minute or so.  Once they got to shore the rabbit jumped up and ran again.

January 1, 2006 9:00 a.m. - Hoppy New Year!  Rabbit resolutions to make:  Clip your rabbit's nails once a month.    Adopt a second rabbit.  All rabbits love company since they are so naturally social.  Get your rabbit a new toy.    Start planning a "carrot patch" to plant this spring to grow fresh veggies for your rabbit.  Take your rabbit for an annual exam by a rabbit savvy vet.  Find vet directories here
