(No cost to you) Bunny Rescue Fundraising Challenge

Rabbit Ramblings will donate funds to the The House Rabbit Society and the Georgia House Rabbit Society based on the net increase in RR page "Likes" on its Facebook page by September 30, 2014. [Starting Likes count is 6,060.]

This donation will be for much needed emergency rescue medical care and vet expenses. An influx of mistreated bunnies recently has depleted medical funds.

If you have already "Liked" RR (thank you from RR & G/HRS), then tell your bunny friends to "Like" RR on Facebook, re-post the challenge or "share" it from the RR Facebook page. (Non-bunny people will “un-like” it and that gets us nowhere.)

P.S. On this page, there's a "Like Us on Facebook" button near the top of the right hand column, under the Pages list. The donation is for increased "page likes" (versus individual posts on the Facebook page - but you can "Like" those, too. Comments welcome).

If you would like to make a donation yourself:
And Thank You!

So many bunnies need help...

[08-19-2014] Bubba and Willa were dumped on a loading dock. GHRS took them in and gave them the best medical attention and care. They were doing great and almost ready for adoption. Then they started rapidly losing weight. After several trips to the vet, x-rays, lab tests and blood work, it appears that they have some form of poisoning or an extremely rare genetic disorder. GHRS has been giving them injections, sub q fluids and a mixture of oral medications twice a day. Recently started weaning them off of some of the meds and reducing the dosage on others. They were holding steady but the next several days will be a deciding factor. Please keep these babies (7 months old) in your thoughts. Believed to be a Lionhead-Flemish mix, they are going to be gentle giants if GHRS can get them through this. They will be going back to the vet this week for a repeat of x-rays, blood work and other labs.

[08-10-2014] Rio was very underweight on arrival, but is slowly gaining back some of that weight now that he is at the center. He seems like a very sweet bunny, and will hopefully continue to improve as time goes by. The hardest part of his rehab is not giving him all of the food that he can eat. We have to be very careful not to feed him too much too fast; he is on medications to help his body get used to absorbing nutrients. He is steadily gaining weight and beginning to trust humans.

Bunnies are the new Cat (?)

There's a movement going on RR must report to you. There's a feeling that the cats have ruled the internet long enough and there's a new player in town... the bunnies. The bunnies are organizing their PR machine and here is one of their videos.

It's Hoppy Hour from Lucky Branded Entertainment on Vimeo.

Be sure to check out:

2m50s - Binkypalooza

Go HERE to vote for your favorite Rabbit Representative. Voting is through August 29th.

Bunny Monday Meme*day

Bunnies need exercise - hours every day, morning and late afternoon, to run around. Bunnies are crepuscular, active at dawn and dusk.

When Bunya first returned from the vet...

When Bunya first got home from the vet, he might have been still feeling a little surly from his special treatment. The girls watched him from a distance...

As Bunya checks out the toys (chinning),
Lucy watches from atop the funhouse
and if you look hard, you can see
Ethel hiding behind it, to the right.

Here's a better "aerial" shot of Ethel
behind the funhouse,
sitting on the cinder block.

The Bunnies of Biltmore

After a tour of Biltmore House, we (naturally) hit the gift shops. After some food. And ice cream. But before the wine tastings. Yes, that was shopS, plural; there are about a half dozen different themes (located in the "stables") and you could find bunny somethings in most of them. (P.S. If you take the house tour, spend the extra $s on the recorded tour narrative - totally worth it to better understand what you are viewing.)

Okay, loose bunny connection but spotted in the eatery.
"Silly Rabbit, Trix are for..."

Bunny version of Hear no evil, See no evil, Say no evil.

Tiny little bunny figures

This little bunny figurine opened up
(like a Limoges box).

Thought this big bun hugging
small bun was really cute.
