Hang on tight, Bunny lovers

It has come to our* attention that several good peeps on from Flickr’s Bunny Lovers Unite pool have lost their buns over the weekend.

It’s always hard to lose a pet—especially a precious, soft, snorgly bun. Even when that bun shows her "miniature disapproval", she’s still a sweetheart.

Here’s to you and your wonderful pets, let’s hope they’re all snuggling in that great rabbit warren in the sky…


Tobias F., thanks for the bunneries.

    RIP little buns… and a big snorgle to all the parents who lost a loved bun.

  5. Kris, in New England says:

    My own dear buns – Sable and Blossom – are over the rainbow bridge. I like to think they are running thru fields of rye grass (their fave), binking and digging.

  6. Eep! High alert!

    And so sorry to the bun lovers who have lost theirs…losing a pet is never happy 😦

  7. Kris, in New England says:

    Oh, and begging for bananas – never saw anything like it. Sitting up on their hind feet, begging for a banana…

  9. Oh man. That’s so sad! Condolences to everyone who lost their bunnies!

  10. Notice the bed sheets bun is on. If you turn your head sideways, can’t you imagine that you’ve just woken up and bun bun is saying, “Oh, you’re awake. Let’s go frolic.”

  11. Huh… this little hoomph looks like a baby version of our Willow (the Pillow).

  12. spoony earses! Love the wee gray bun.

  13. Did anyone check out the dissaproving bun site? Stern buns make my morning.

  14. Well that’s just great: Thanks for linking to the “secret bunny burrow” page. Now I have to close my office door, before anyone sees my eyes misting over.

    And I’m not even a bunny person. In fact, the fear of losing a bun prolly means I never WILL be a bunny person.


  15. I can’t stop looking at this picture. It’s so perfectly proportioned, it’s mesmerizing. It goes beyond simple cuteness to adorable perfection. Bravo!

  16. Wow — click on the pic and the large version is *really* large (plus it’s called “flufferkins.jpg”)!

  17. aww, that is so sad. snorgling to all the pet owners who have lost a bun recently!
    “spooney ears”, that is great! the disaproving bunnies are now my new subject of converstion for the water cooler today. i cant wait to gather the confused and worried looks at my mentioning of their ‘tude.

  18. AuntLisa says:

    Thanks Theo. Your comment about the large version made me realize I could use Flufferkins as my desktop image.

    Even with all the adorable bun photos last week, this is the one that reminds me of Nina, the “emergency” bunny we snuck into the dorms when I was in college. Flufferkins is bunny perfection, and indecently snorgable.

    Condolences to those who’ve lost their bunny companions. I dread the day I may have to do without Ballou.

  19. Oh, my…it’s so perfectly proportioned – the tiny li’l paws are killing me!

    *iz ded from cute!*

  20. Those ears! *Whine* I want to go home and snuggle with MY bunnies and look at pics of my late bun.

  21. Courtney says:

    My condolences to whoever lost a bun over the weekend. 😦

    The bun in the picture is mighty sweet. He looks ready for action!

  22. Bunnies are perfect, especially this little fellow. Sympathies to all the peeps who have lost that little bit of perfection in their lives–for now. 😦

  23. The giant little bunny who could! Thanks, t-o.

  24. OK, I might’ve gone a little overboard here…


    (at this point I just had to say “enough” — since there are almost 5,000 of ’em to sift through)

    E.C. — you’re all over that group, eh? Can’t say I’m surprised.

  25. I’m gonna get myself fired here…but I’ll go down happy!

  26. teho, I’m hardly “all over,” but I do like the folks and their bun-rabs just fine. Can’t help noticing, though, that *you* seem a tad mesmerized by the blinding cuteness there. 😉

    And Flufferkins is quite da bunnery…!

  27. Awww….. pretty baby… my husband actually bought me a stuffed bunny just to satisfy my desire for a bun… one day I say…. one day I TOO will have my very own REAL bunny!!!

    Quick question… did anyone else fall in love with bunnys from books? I absolutely LOVE the Velveteen Rabbit and Bunnicula from when I was a child and I wondered if others started their bunny love affair this way too?

  28. Oh, I almost forgot:

  29. Hey Bunny bun bun! I wanna cuddle with uuuu

  30. Awww what perfect alert ears!

  31. M-
    ‘Rabbit Hill’ and ‘The Tough Winter’ for me. Wonderful books, and beautifully illustrated (by Robert Lawson – who also wrote them). I still read ’em.

  32. Awwww that is a sweet bunbun!

  33. Stuh-op. If you have not visited the “disapproving rabbits,” you must do so. I have found my bun soul mate: Hazel, the rabbit who disapproved of Christmas.

  34. that is the perfect bunny. perfect.


  35. Isn’t she, k!!! She looks like she’s at a bunny show ready to win first prize. Are there bunny shows? And are they televised?! 😀

  36. M-definitely! Peter Rabbit and kith and kin an’ such. (pssst…my closest friends call me “bunny.” What an honor!)

  37. Just wanted to add my condolences to the people who have lost their bunnies (many *hugs* to ya) and say a big fat AWWW! to the little grey bun above.

  38. For those dying to be roundly disapproved of by The Masters:


  39. warrior rabbit says:

    I feel for the parents who lost their buns this weekend. Such an awful, heartbreaking experience.

    Re: the bun above — adorable. I wonder how much smothering (face smooshing) he’d put up with before pouting and turning his back on me.

    As for rabbit books, my dad bought me a book when I was a kid called, “The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes.” Awesome, awesome book written by a dad for his daughter back in 1939. It’s a tail (sorry) of empowerment in a fuzzy form. A classic. It really influenced me. It’s on my bookshelf, and one day will become a tattoo.

  40. warrior rabbit says:

    Um, I should probably add that the “Country Bunny” author was Dubose Heyward, the man behind Porgy and Bess, among other things.

  41. Oh the fluff and the beady eye factor and the EARS! *Thud*

    Poor lost bunnies, I sympathize T_T

  42. *chomp* i shall eat this bunnie.

  43. Awww, sweet bunny! I lost my bun last month :(, but best friend’s kitty brought in an uninjured domestic baby bun yesterday. Bunny karma 🙂

  45. I’m from Bunny Lovers Unite. Sadly, I lost my rabbit last Thursday. Thanks to all of you for leaving such nice comments.

  46. Julie, Kris–my heart goes out to you.

  47. Such a greedy weekend, to take so many buns.

    A while ago, friend of mine lost a very beloved dog. I advised him to – as soon as he felt able – get to the pound! FORTHWITH!

    He did, found a new dog-friend and hasn’t regretted it since. I always thought – as one who can’t keep pets, though dearly would like to – that the best justice one can do to the memory of a lost pet is to adopt another.

  48. Oh aiyeeeee!!!! Such a cutie cutesy cute bunny!!!!!!!!!!!!! Am suffering an ACS (Acute Cutecongestion Syndrome)!!!!

    I WANNA HUG YOU!!!!!!

  49. cuteness lover says:

    I’m so sorry for everyone who has lost a bunny. I’m sure they were all loved very much, and had great lives. I just lost my GP, I still go to his cage to feed him every morning. It’s hard to break those habits. I agree with AUBREY though, the best thing to do when you are ready, is to save anothers life, in memory of your friend. One of their little friends will certainly appreciate it.

  50. Speaking of “miniature disapproval,” here’s anotherbun who’s tops at it:


  51. AuntieMame says:

    Help! I’ve been trying all day to find the post someone made earlier today or yesterday of a bun with one ear perked up and one lying flat. Where did it go???!?!?

  52. It is the cuttest i have ever seen.

  53. AuntieM — will this do? It was a member of my Link Platoon…

  54. Those disapproving rabbits make me wish I had a water proof camera. I’d get some video of my cats scolding me while I’m in the shower (Although not any footage of ME in the shower.) They sit up on the shower wall and say things like, “Oh. My. God. That can’t be good for you. All that water and soap. Are you mad? Have you lost your senses? Meeeee-mee-mee-oooow!” It drives them crazy seeing anyone bathe. They do not approve.

  55. i swear everytime i look at this picture i see the nose going up and down for a split second

  56. Sorry for the VEEERRRY late post, but does anyone know what type of bunny this is?

  57. oletko itse ottanut tän kuvan?? Mulle varotettiin sun kuvista että ne on laittomii!!! vastaa mailiini.
