Remember to Keep the Holidays Hoppy

for your rabbits, too!

  • Keep light cords, garland & tinsel away from chewing rabbits

  • Keep toxic plants out of reach like mistletoe, holly & poinsettia

  • Set candles where they can't be tipped over

  • Set fragile tree ornaments higher on the tree

  • Children (and adults) guests need to know the rules of getting to know your rabbit!

(Sing it to the tune of "Let it Snow")

 

Bunnies Let It Snow

 

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,

But the carrots are so delightful,

And, since bunnies have no where to go,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

 

It doesn't show signs of stopping,

The Rabbits keep on hopping;

Eyeing the Christmas tree so low,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

 

When everyone says goodnight,

Rabbits chew up everything in sight,

Shredding packages, ribbons and bows,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

 

The Christmas tree is falling,

Busy bunnies keep on gnawing;

It's good their human loves them so,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

 

(Inspiration for lyrics by Connie Andrews (2002) based on

a true story about some very naughty bunnies)

Tips to Snap a Holiday Photo

of Your Bunny

Rabbit "Super Models" During the Holidays - You may want to have your rabbit in a Holiday card photo or take a pets/people portrait for the holidays yourself. Here are a few pointers:

  • Go to an experienced Pet Photographer

  • Make sure the photographer has the shot all set-up with all the props, etc. before the rabbit goes into the picture

  • Be sure your rabbit has several minutes to get used to the area

  • No tight clothing props attached to your bunny

  • Make sure the floor isn't slick so the rabbit has some footing if the he/she won't be posed in your lap

  • No hot lights until it is necessary (if at all)

  • Better yet take the photo at home with a timer yourself

  • Try taking the photo in natural light near a window instead of using flash, and if you do use flash, use the red-eye reduction feature on your camera

  • Check your background and make sure it isn't too busy and detracts from your subject

  • Get down at the rabbit's level to get the shot and that may mean sitting or laying on the floor

  • Have a bunny "wrangler" to help who is familiar with your rabbit and can distract the bunny with toys or a treat

  • If you have a digital camera, take as many photos as you want.  You will find one that captures your rabbit's personality!

  • Make sure you have plenty of time or have your camera on hand other times of the year to get a spontaneous photo 

  • Have a treat on hand for afterwards.
