Is Your Bunny a Happy Bunny?

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Remember the RSPCA’s video Happy Bunnies? (If not, watch it above!) Well, they’re putting together a new Christmas Special of even more happy bunnies, and they want to feature your rabbit!

Here’s how to get involved:

  • Take a video of your rabbit playing, interacting with toys, animal companions, or people. (Make sure your rabbit is playing naturally and actually enjoying the experience- do not make him/her perform or dress up in costumes for the video.)
  • Make sure the clip is under 1 minute long and is not too dark or shaky.
  • Upload your clip to  http://dropbox.yousendit.com/RSPCA by Friday 18th November 2011.

Japanese Earless Bunny

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

An earless bunny in Japan is sparking up debate about whether we are seeing signs of mutation as a result of the Fukushima nuclear site’s meltdown back in March. I wasn’t going to post since I felt like the sample size of one rabbit wasn’t sufficient to back up these claims, especially since we’ve posted in the past about another earless rabbit named Vincent Van Gogh.

But the video of the white bunny was cute, so here it is:

It’s Rabbit Awareness Week!

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Rabbit Awareness Week logoFor all the bunny lovers in the UK, this week is a wonderful time to learn more about proper rabbit care and get free health checkups.

It’s Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) from May 23 – May 29, 2011!

Here are a few facts about pet bunnies:

  • Rabbits can be litterbox trained.
  • Rabbits need space to run and play everyday. In fact, many rabbit owners opt to let their bunnies have free reign all the time in a bunny-proofed room or entire home. They don’t actually need to be caged.
  • Rabbits’ main diet should be hay (not pellets!). Hay should be available to rabbits at all times so they can graze when they want.
  • Most rabbits don’t like being held. They prefer that you sit down with them at their level.
  • Spaying/neutering your rabbit is essential. When spayed/neutered, rabbits become less aggressive and territorial, males stop spraying, litterbox habits improve, there are no accidental babies, and cancer risk decreases significantly.

Watch an adorable video from the RSPCA of how rabbits act when they’re not stuck in a hutch all day:

To find out which places are offering free health checkups and other rabbit-related events, go to the event locator on the Rabbit Awareness Week website.

Rabbit Organizations Band Together to Save 79 Rabbits

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

After a Florida rabbit breeder appeared on the news saying she was broke and would be forced to sell all 79 of her rabbits to a zoo as snake food, first euthanizing them with a homemade gas chamber, several rabbit rescues came together to help. The rescues raised money to provide the woman with the $8/bunny that was promised by the zoo and picked the bunnies up yesterday to be transported to various foster homes and shelters throughout the eastern US.

See the original news story of the breeder and a followup story.

Although the rescues have raised enough money for the “bailout”, they still need donations to reimburse costs for transportation, spay and neuter, and general care of these rabbits. Learn more about this rescue mission and donate to their cause at BunnyTransport.com.
