Happy New Year! (and some bunny care and human care)

New Year's reminder from the humans:
Bunnies do NOT like fireworks.
It stresses them just like other sudden and/or loud noises.

If your bunny's neighborhood is firecracker noisy, keep the buns cool and quiet.
Close the windows and doors.

If needed to "cover" firecracker noise, play music - peaceful, easy listening (not loud).
Think elevator music. No hair bands or hare bands. Stay away from 1812 Overture.
Your TV service might even have a suitable channel in its lineup - you just never tune to those channels.

If you do not already have boxes for them to play on and in, get some plain cardboard boxes (not slick or a lot of ink/color; no staples, labels or tape). Cut at least two openings in each box big enough for your bunny to get in and out ... they can hide in them, to further mute the noise and feel a little safer.

Keep them company and reassure them that everything's okay. Pet them if they are the petting kind of bunnies. Have a couple of healthy treats handy (Bunya told me to say that).


Hi there. Bunya here.

First, Lucy & Ethel and I want to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Please be careful in your celebrations.
If you drink, don't drive.
We don't have anything against moderate imbibing ... the humans don't know it but we always ferment a little carrot juice to celebrate, too. But we are staying home to celebrate. We hate cars.

Even if you don't drink, be careful driving out there, because not everyone is as smart as you.
Don't text while driving either. Just concentrate.

Also, be kind to each other next year. And beyond.
Be kind to all pets and animals, too. (But especially bunnies.)

Take care!


  1. Happy New Year!
    I, also wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
    I also dislike cars, quite nasty things in my opinion (though it does take me to the park).
    Have a fun, festive time!
    Yes, let us be kind to one another, such an important thing that is so easily forgotten.
    Wish you the best this New Year!
    Sir. Fernly

  3. Hoppy New Year Bunya, Lucy and Ethel! Long may Ethel groom, Lucy hide and Bunya B Awesome. :) <3

  4. Happy New Year to all of you! You'll be happy to hear that pressure on the horrible angora rabbit wool industry in China is working. Many brands have pledged to go angora-free forever, and sources in China say that the industry has collapsed by about 50% since the undercover investigation. Bunny guardians everywhere are keeping up the pressure to get rid of the cruel angora wool trade forever! Thanks for all you do.
