What do rabbits see?

Make Mine Chocolate!

Momma's report:
I've been wearing my chocolate bunny pin at church and getting lots of comments and questions. Now that we have Samwise (most likely an abandoned Easter bunny) it makes it a lot easier to talk about the importance of not giving in and getting your kids a bunny for Easter. I always ask them if they are ready to get a cat or dog since a rabbit will quickly grow into the equivalent of an unhousebroken puppy when the adolescent hormones kick in.

30-second bunny theater!!!

Bunnies do 30-second parodies of your favorite movies! SOOOO FUNNY!!!
Highlander, Alien, Titanic, Jaws, even Brokeback Mountain......

Remember, if the movie had strong language/violence, so will the cartoon parody--so view at your own risk!

Bunny's grocery list

Having a rabbit as a companion pet can be good for your waistline and for your heart. Our family no longer buys iceberg lettuce since it is not good food for bunnies (who get their fair share and all the soon to go brown leftovers!). We eat the much healthier romaine, leaf lettuce, endive, escarole, butter lettuce, kale and spinach instead (I buy frisee just for Sam who loves it so much that its fun to watch her eat it!).
I have an herb garden that the bunnies help to fertilize and I grow some of the lettuces and greens myself as well as fresh and delicious herbs such as cilantro, parsley, basil, mint, and lemon balm. These are all great for adding a little gourmet into your cooking and the mint makes excellent tea! We were never this healthy in our eating choices before the bunnies. I eat healthier snacks--Frodo and I like to share a pear and I even find myself munching on the carrots that I use to treat the buns during clicker training.

So here's the list of "Healthy Foods for the Healthy Rabbit" taken from
Print this out and take it with you when you go shopping!

Greens and Vegetables
Mustard greens
Turnip greens
Collard greens
Bok choy
Radish tops
Carrots (limited quantity)
Carrot tops
Salad Savoy
Swiss chard
Lettuce --not iceberg!
Green leaf

Lemon balm


Bermuda grass

The Busy Bunny liked our idea!

Have you seen our idea for a bunny (or cat) privacy screen for the litterbox? Busy Bunny linked to us on their site: Other Rabbit and Small Animal Related Sites

Momma's report:
So far its working great. Frodo can still chew on it if he likes but he seems to love hiding in it and snacking on the hay we put for him twice daily in the box. The fit is just perfect--snug enough that it stays on and easily removes for cleaning the litterbox. It also saves us floor space and looks better in our kitchen than a regular litterbox!

Make my momma's Chocolate--I prefer hay!

It's that time of year again--a special Ash Wednesday Message to everybody thinking of purchasing a pet rabbit for Easter.

Each year, unwanted, former Easter rabbits fill local rabbit rescues and humane societies. Help spread the word that rabbits are NOT disposable pets.
Before you bring a pet rabbit into your home at Easter, please consider these facts:

• Rabbits are NOT low-maintenance pets! They require as much work as a dog or cat.
• Rabbits can live 8 to 10 years, sometimes longer.
• The necessary spay or neuter can cost $100 or more, and rabbits require routine veterinary care.
• Rabbits are not cuddly — they can become frightened when held!
• Pet rabbits cannot be set “free” — it’s a death sentence.

This Easter, why not make it a CHOCOLATE bunny or a cuddly stuffed toy instead? Let’s make it a Happy Easter for bunnies, too.
