Students at Fremont Middle School in Fremont, Nebraska were surprised by an interesting view when they entered their social studies classroom. A wild rabbit had created a burrow in the snow right next to the window.

For those of you who read My House Rabbit’s blog this past spring, you will remember that we hosted Audrey from Audrey on Tour for a few days here in New London, CT. Audrey then went on to Bow, WA with A Houseful of Rabbits.
You can see photos and descriptions of other places Audrey toured on the All About You site by clicking here. It looks like they are still gathering photos, so if you hosted Audrey but you’re not listed on this page, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo of Audrey’s stay in your area.
Rabbit Haven reports that Copper, the rabbit saved from euthanasia, is settling in nicely at his new permanent home with the rescue. Experienced bunny volunteers are already making progress getting Copper socialized with humans. If all goes well, they hope that after he’s neutered, he will form a bond with a spayed female rabbit as well.
From their press release:
On Monday, November 23, 2009, Kathleen Olsen, Executive Director of the Tacoma Humane Society, agreed to allow Rabbit Haven of Gig Harbor, WA., to take Copper. Copper was picked up and brought to Rabbit Haven by Sue Brennan, the rescue’s founder. “We are thankful that we could work with the Tacoma Humane Society to find a solution for this very famous rabbit,” said Brennan. “The Tacoma Humane Society does wonderful work and has found homes for many bunnies and other animals, and we’re grateful for what they do. At Rabbit Haven, we have bunny specialists well-equipped to handle even the most terrified and anxious rabbits, who sometimes bite out of fear and because they’ve been so mistreated in the past. Copper is a healthy, rambunctious teenage rabbit who will get the love and care that he needs to turn into a good house bunny.”
“This was a potentially sad story that had a very happy ending,” said Brennan. “House rabbits are wonderful, intelligent pets with great senses of humor. They can be litter-trained, do tricks, and more and more families are finding out how fun it is to share their homes with a house rabbit. We hope that Copper’s story will inspire more people to learn about house rabbits, and to support the work of animal shelters.”
Copper has already started to show progress at Rabbit Haven. Under the care of highly experienced rabbit experts, he has even started to ‘purr’ when held (rabbits purr by chattering their teeth.) At Rabbit Haven, Copper will continue receive the attention and care he needs to recover and learn to trust and socialize with humans. He will be neutered and, if possible, he will eventually be ‘bonded’ with a spayed female rabbit, as rabbits are happiest when they live in pairs and groups. Rabbit Haven will continue to work with local rescues to find homes for abandoned and mistreated rabbits.

The babies are 4 weeks old in the pix and the adults are doing fabulously after everything they went through. Notice the bunny that has a heart on its side!
We have a pair traveling to a rescue in TN this weekend via the Bunderground Railroad and another pair going to a rescue in Tampa Thanksgiving weekend. It has been so heart warming to meet so many nice people who all share the same interest of helping the bunnies.
Thanks Megan and Luv-A-Bun for all your hard work!
Sometimes Coco and Cosette like to snuggle. I thought their first formation was a little bizarre, but it seemed to work for both of them…
until Coco decided he needed to groom… maybe he got fur in his eyes somehow?
He decided on a different formation when he finished grooming.
Biscuit is a 2 lb Dutch with an unusual means of transportation, a scooter. Biscuit accompanies her owner on his scooter while he travels to work at a produce stand. There she becomes the center of attention as people stop by to say hello and watch her sample the wares.
Her owner, Coleman Rogers, has had house rabbits for pets for the last 17 years. His first was left at his house by a friend, and he was soon hooked on raising rabbits. Each of his rabbits has been litter box trained and cage-free. Biscuit spends most her time in Rogers’s kitchen.

I guess Cosette found chewing envelopes to be quite exhausting.
It’s funny what rabbits find to be comfortable resting places. I used to try to make/buy nice soft beds for my rabbits, but eventually determined from their reactions that these beds were apparently too wrinkly and weren’t saturated enough with rabbit urine (quickly remedied by them). Instead, I discovered that rabbits (at least my own) prefer hard areas- like plastic food mats, hearths, vents, and as pictured below, entertainment stands.
