Ongoing Heat Wave Continues to Swelter All

“Watch it, Mildred! If you’re not careful you’ll step in one of them bunny puddles and end up with disapproval all over your shoe!”

Radiating disapproval, Kristin H.



  1. Oh noes! He’s meeeeeelting!!

  2. Welshgrrl says:

    Poor melting bun.

  3. Noelle (the First) says:

    I feel your pain little bun! This is just what I look like in extreme heat…without the fur, of course. Thank GOD for air conditioning!

  4. Mary (the first) says:

    looks like a melted Reese’s Cup or something.. a delicious mix of chocolate and peanut butter! I don’t see disapproval, only scrumptiosness!

  5. Mary (the first) says:

    scrumptiousness, is what I meant to say. Don’t ever forget the “u”! 😀

  6. victoreia says:

    My cats look like that all the time….one of them even has the disapproval almost down…..

  7. I had a bunny once, well my ex has him now. I never saw him sleep.

  8. janet2buns says:

    If Mildred stepped in THIS bunny puddle, she’d be disapproved of, all right, right up to her knee! Then her friends could call her “Stumpy”

  9. Actually, I thik that bunny is almost content.


  10. earlybird1 says:

    With his coloring, he is a melty, gooey cinnabun.

  11. Carolyn says:

    On hot days we used to buy a block of ice for our bunny. He grooved on it.

  12. Aurhora says:

    Hot cross bun?

  13. Queen Zola says:

    I’ve seen squirrels to that, but never bunnies! Quick, iced carrot juice STAT!

  14. My buns get frozen water bottles in this weather! Phew!

  15. Poor, poor bun… I know how he/she feels! And like Jo, I used to give my bunnies frozen water bottles in the heat of the summer. Sometimes I wish I had a giant, frozen water bottle to curl around in our 100+ degree heat (us Oregonians just aren’t used to this kind of weather!) 🙂

  16. 260Oakley says:

    Judging by the size of that puddle, it must have been quite a bunderstorm.

  17. ViolaDeLesseps says:

    AAAAAAAAAGGGHHH! Adorabuhlbuhlness overwhelm!! Kiss & kiss & snorfle till my leeps fall off & I splode!

  18. @Mary (the first) Heh, I actually like that word you came up with “scrumptiosness”, like it is the state of being scrumptious. 🙂

    And I love love LOVE the coloring on this bun. (lays down on cool floor & melts with bun) ahhhh. I love summer.

  19. @260Oakley: Um, all other buns aside, I think that was your best evah. I’d give you a standing “O” but I’m all melty with teh bun sorry, remind me in the Fall ok? 😉

  20. 260Oakley says:

    Since you’re bunder the influence right now, I won’t hareass you for that standing o.

  21. Don’t put the bun in the freezer, put the freezer next to the bun!
    He’ll perk right up!
    Olaf knows how to keep his cool

  22. @Mets
    I read “O” totally, totally wrong and had to stare at the screen thinking for like fifteen seconds before I realized you didn’t mean what I thought you meant. I think there might be something wrong with me.

  23. Rooanne says:

    Thank goodness I put the air conditioner in my bunny’s room. Yes, he is very spoiled!

  24. You know if you step in angry bun and get disapproval on your shoe, you never really get the smell off…


  25. Tammers says:

    Mmmm…I want to nom on the warm floppy ears…mmmm

  26. victoreia says:

    @Oakley & Metz: very bunny, you two!

  27. victoreia 07.14.10 at 7:24 pm
    @Oakley & Metz: very bunny, you two!

    what? I’m multiplyin…

    Thanks victoreia, I just hope my bunning isn’t going to become a bad rabbit.
    (groans at self, that was especially bad)

  28. Flufffffff!!!

  29. Bunosicles.

  30. BStrange says:

    @Aurorha at 12: “Hot cross bun” made me grin. It’s fitting, and I haven’t heard that nursery rhyme in about six thousand years, either. So of course I have to do the whole thing, now:

    Hot cross buns!
    Hot cross buns!
    One hot bunny, two hot bunnies,
    Hot cross buns!
    If you have no carrots,
    Buy some – better run!
    One hot bunny,
    Two hot bunnies,
    Hot cross buns!

  31. Hon Glad says:

    “Actualy I’m working out some differential calculus.”

  32. I have melted into a pile of bunny from the heat today.

  33. What a wonderful picture… inspiring joy and happiness inside all who view it. 🙂

    With Love and Gratitude,

    The Intentional Sage

  34. a flopped lop *so cute

  35. andi in NC says:

    the floppy ears look so soft – dare I try to touch them? *reaches out to screen*

  36. Somebunny’s squishing his eyes shut, wishing for a cool breeze! Do you think an ice cold carrot juice could help?

  37. AnnieStuart says:

    baha, our lop bunny does the same thing, sprawled next to the a/c. Sometimes he lives a mouf-print on the towel where he’s drooled in his sleep……

    Love those “airplane ears” btw.

  38. janet2buns says:

    HRH Queen Phoebe and Prince Consort Drizzle like to hog the cold air vent in my bunny room. Drizzle’s lionhead fur tufts blow around in the breeze….so cute!

  39. Katrina says:

    Yup that IS one hot, crossed bun. YOU got there first, ah, well it is worth repeating.

  40. Oh my Gawd. That bun has taken out the very heart of my being and expressed it in melted, fuzzy eloquence.

  41. I don’t bunderstand, Peeps dun like Summer? Personally, I am savoring each and every heat seared moment. I love summer SO much. I was SO born in the wrong hemisphere, lol.

  42. @ Metz you savour it because you freeze most of the year where you Live LOL!

    We are having anoter bunny meltingly hot day! Wonders if some one thought to put a big block of Ice out for me at home.

  43. O NO He/She/It DI-unt says:

    YAY @ HonGlad!!!!

  44. skippymom says:

    Here you go, Metz–take my summer. You’re welcome to all the heat. Just GET IT OFF ME!!!!!!

  45. lolol so cute!!

  46. that is sssssssssssssssssoooooooooooooooooooo A D O R A B L E !
    amparo says that is the cutest thing in the world of bunnies

  47. Skippymom – BWAAAA_HAAAAAA_HAAAAA! I agree. Get it off me!

  48. thedistractor says:

    Metz — Come down to Alabama for a summer and see if you like summer that much afterwards. I’m a warm weather person, but the humidity is killing me. I just keep reminding myself “At least you’re not in New Orleans.”

  49. I want to melt tooooo

  50. Просто прелесть!

  51. Queen of Squee says:

    Aww, that poor bunny looks so tired and pooped out. Sounds like me after I was running errands yesterday… 90 some degrees in air temperature + dreadful humidity stinks! I *almost* want to go back to California where the heat reaches 100+ but is dry.

    On the flipside, the bunny looks awfully relaxed!

  52. chocolatedonut20 says:

    aaaaaaw. poor bunny. but so adorable!

  53. eep, I have the exact same bunny paddle at home right now, same color, same floppy ears, same disaproval, same heat wave!

  54. Anya Jenkins says:

    AGHHH!!! WHY WOULD YOU post this evil, evil EVIL creature!?? It’s going to kill us all! What’s with them eating all those carrots? Why do they need such good eyes anyway??

    Okay, so this bunbun is actually adorable!

  55. Kallisto says:

    bunnies, bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies (or maybe midgets)

  56. Maribeth says:

    If you watch closely, you can see its nose twitch!

  57. Bunny puddles!!!!!!!!!!! With dirty spots- te he! He looks like he dipped his ears in an inkwell and then tried to get off the ink by wiping it with his face. Smooshie!

  58. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!!!! says:

    @ # 50: Gavaritz pa-Russkie?

    or maybe it’s in Polish or Serbo-Croatian, or ….??

    I don’t have a keyboard with cyrillic characters….

  59. Queen of Dork says:

    Plenty of puddles of bunnies here! It’s 110+ and has been for days and will be for the rest of the weekend. It’s so hot here, the birds are plucking out their own feathers to make fans.

    disclaimer: I’m just kidding. No birds here in the Mojave Desert are featherless and no bunnies are really melting. Although I am. 🙂

  60. Queen of Dork says:

    Ooops! Did I say it’s hot here? Oh. I didn’t mean that. I meant to say, it’s STUPID hot here!

  61. Lula Mae says:

    Bunneeeh eyelashes!

  62. Queen of Dork says:

    Awwwwwwww. When it’s so hot, my kitty likes to lay on the floor in the bathroom. Well, I was just in there petting him and talking to him about how the temps in this corner of the world will be cooler in a couple of months and how he’ll be okay and stuff like that. He purred and licked my hand! (Love) 🙂
