A new housing option is now available to rabbit owners! For those who want to keep their home looking classy, RabbitHouses.net offers beautiful wooden enclosures for your house rabbit that complement the furniture in your home. They are multi-storied, and they come with an opening roof for upstairs, a grass den downstairs for relaxing, a removable plastic liner pan, and rabbit sized holes so your bunny can go in and out as he pleases. Other accessories are also available such as a rabbit cabinet (another enclosure with two drawers), a plastic floor tray to catch any accidents, a litter box, and a box of hay.

Home Decorating Bunny Style

Monday, March 24th, 2008

I came across these cute bunny salt and pepper shakers at wrapables.com. I think since it’s post-Easter, they’re on sale. So it’s the perfect time for bunny lovers to find rabbit-themed gifts. They also have napkins, towels and candles.

Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunnies

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

Well, I don’t actually like chocolate, so I can’t confirm if dairy-free, egg-free chocolate Easter bunnies taste similar to non-vegan chocolate bunnies, but I did find a comprehensive list of them for all the vegans out there.

Go Dairy Free recently published an article listing 8 chocolatiers selling dairy-free, egg-free chocolate bunnies: http://www.godairyfree.org/200803062325/News/Nutrition-Headlines/Now-Where-am-I-Going-to-Find-a-Dairy-Free-Chocolate-Bunny.html

They have since published an addendum to the list: http://www.godairyfree.org/200803072327/News/Nutrition-Headlines/Introducing-New-Members-to-the-Dairy-Free-Chocolate-Bunny-Family.html

Nabaztag Rabbits

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

I actually saw an ad for one of these WiFi Nabaztag Rabbits on this site and had no idea what they were. After some investigation, I found out they’ve actually been around for a few years. Basically their purpose is to connect to your wireless network, and read you the news out loud, notify you when you have new emails, read messages you receive, tell you the weather, obey spoken commands, dance, and play songs. They are essentially little Internet beacons – and they work even when the computer is off and are able to speak 16 different languages.

It’s kind of neat, but I don’t know if I want to add “Talking to a technological object” to the list of things I do everyday. I already spend the majority of my day talking to real, live rabbits. That said, it might be useful if you were trying to learn a new language or something. You could just make it talk to you in that language all day.

Make Mine Chocolate!™ Pin

Friday, March 7th, 2008

The Hay Experts, one of the UK partners of the Make Mine Chocolate!™ campaign, is now offering ceramic pins resembling chocolate bunnies in their store. The idea is to promote MMC’s message that chocolate bunnies are better Easter gifts than live rabbits. By wearing the unique pin, people will be inclined to ask you about it, and this presents the perfect opportunity to spread the word that rabbits are not disposable pets. This helps reach MMC’s goal of educating the public on the proper care of house rabbits, so if they do decide to adopt a rabbit, they are adequately prepared to take on the responsibility.

All the profits from sales of the pins will be donated to a rabbit rescue.

Thanks Vicky for letting me know about the pins! (Vicky is the owner of Clover, the French Lop who can be seen in our photo gallery.)

For US residents, you can purchase the pin from MMC’s store: http://www.makeminechocolate.org/products.php
