Happy New Year! (+ some bunny care)

 New Year's reminder:

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. Close the blinds to reduce flashes.

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. We have an air filter that runs all the time and provides a white noise background.

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.

Found this from Oxbow

Wishing everyone a safe, happy, and healthy New Year!

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

Wishing you a very bunny Christmas!!!

One of my all-time favorite bunny pictures, my standard Christmas bun - and it's not even our bunny!

 This is Mr Cookie, one of the cutest bunnies ever and my way of wishing everyone a joyous, happy and safe holiday! Hope Santa Paws bring you what you want and, most importantly, what you need.

[Mr Cookie passed over the Rainbow Bridge about the same time we lost our Lucy, August of 2015. The internet and our hearts allow our treasured pets to live on and I hope they're having fun together over the bridge.]

Funny Bunny Monday Meme*day

Spotted Sapphire on another bunny page and when I looked closer at her nose and mouf - I thought she would be perfect as a seasonally-appropriate meme.

Happy Halloween!

A Happy Halloween to all!

Pro tip: Buy the candy you (or your kids, if you want to play it that way) like and hide it around the house. Treat yourself this year and stay safe!

P.S. Lyla reminds me of what Bunya looked like when he was smoll.

Breaking news - there may have been some quid pro quo to get the above picture:

Bun o' lanterns -- Bunny pumpkins for Halloween

A Rabbit Ramblings traditional pre-Halloween post... If you carve a bunny pumpkin, please post a picture on the RR Facebook page so it can be added to the "library". (Bunkin pictures from miscellaneous sources around the internet and from past Facebook contributions, so also appreciate any picture credits you can add - thanks!)

Have fun! Be careful carving pumpkins and have a safe celebration!

Happy Halloween!

Carving a "bunkin" (bunny pumpkin) for Halloween?

Here are a few "Boo! Bunnies" to inspire your creative carving...

Was this bunny in "Lord of the Rings" or something?

Don't forget "EB" - the Energizer Bunny

This one is not so much a bun o'lantern
as Lyla reminds me of when Bunya was smoll.
