Cute Overload :D
Yesss, munchie mix, we meet for the last time!
Because there will be no next time for you!
You’re ALL going to that great cookie jar in the sky!
Equal opportunity gluttony, Jon P.
aww i’m bunny sitting this weekend! What is that stuff he’s eating?
Bella (my large manly boyfriends tiny pet bunny he rescued, and whom i’m babysitting for) actually woke me up this morning with some voracious newspaper shredding and rattling her cage as loud as she could with her teeth. This critter is a TRIP. She ACTS like she hates me when I go to pet her (making that bunny growl/hiss) but I will take her out and let her play in the bathroom floor while I get ready for bed, and the second I “ignore her” she’ll hop over and put a paw on my foot!! She’s secretly crushing, but playing hard to get :) :) :)
Bella will warm up to you! Try giving her some alfalfa hay :)
Buns sure do have a lot of personality…
How sweet is that!?! :)
Girl bunnies are like that. Super territorial. She might also be making a ruckus because you’re not paying attention to her (bunnies seek negative attention by making a ruckus…. mine is doing it RIGHT NOW, aaargh!). Oh, and stroke her nose and between her ears when she comes up to you, which means you understand she’s the alpha bun. You’ll be friends soon enough :)
Yeah, my wife constantly tries to ‘wake me up’ with a bunny if I sleep in. Usually with her, they love hopping around, using her as a jungle gym, et cetera. Of the three different rabbits she’s tried to do that with over the years, every last time one has decided that I had the right idea, curled up under my arm and snoozed right along with me.
Bunny personalities are great.
My sister told me once that it is always better to take a bun out of its cage when you want to pet it. Otherwise, all the bun sees is a disembodied hand, and that would scare me too!
it looks like a jar full of yogurt drops in different flavors. our rats go crazy for those things.
Yogurt drops . . . that was my guess, too.
There once was a cute little bunny,
Who thought mocking food was funny.
But the food made him sneeze
And he flew up a tree,
That cute litte bunny of cute!
sing to the tune of “Devil with a Blue Dress” (Mitch Rider and the Detroit Wheels): “Bunny with a feed-bag, feed-bag, feed-bag, Bunny with a feed-bag on”!
Haha . . . thanks for that earworm . . . ::goes off singing::
or, to the tune of “Great Balls of Fire”
I shake the jar and I rattle those drops,
I want to eat those morsels till I pop.
They taste like cream; oh what a dream.
Goodness, gracious, GREAT yogurt drops!
thanks for THAT earworm :)
I hate to harsh the buzz here… but no way should anyone be feeding rabbits yogurt drops. They are vegan and get big stomach problems from sugar like that!
seems fair to me: my dogs love the rabbit drops in our yard. their stomach issues are frequent.
Me and my daughter had a hamster (Lulu) who LOVED yogurt treats! I didn’t know rabbits aren’t supposed to eat yogurt. But our Lulu sure did love them. She lived to be REALLY old for a hamster.
The rabbit in this picture looks totally soft and adorable! Even with its head in a jar, you can see the disapproving exression on its face. Like it’s saying, “dang. I can’t reach the food. I hate jars. I disapprove of glass.”
Hah, true. The bunbun looks like, “Yeah, this is my life, no big surprise here.”
i thought the same thing. Most of the crap they sell as treats in the critter aisle of pet stores is absolute crap, loaded up with sugar. You’d think they were making them for people, not small animals.
Well, not to put too fine a point on it – but rabbits are still mammals; they’re not vegan. Milk is not really an issue for them.
On the other hand, you are right in that rabbits shouldn’t have yogurt drops. There’s too much sugar and alot of other unhealthy stuff in there. It tends to make for unpleasantly chubby buns if you overdo it.
Also, veganism is a human construct. Rabbits are obligate herbivores, as they’ve got no choice in the matter, as humans, which are biological omnivores do.
According to the House Rabbit Society, yogurt drops are fine in moderation:
Hit post too soon… but that it’s better to stick to raisins etc.
It’s all the same to them anyway. My bunnies go about as crazy for raisins as one can go, so why feed something that’s a gamble?
I’ve been a bunny mom for the last 3 glorious years, and I’ve learned that most things are ok in moderation (with obvious exceptions). The bags that the yogurt drops come in say that you should only give 1-2 per day. They’re loaded with sugar and calcium, which can cause some serious digestive problems if eaten in excess.
That said, my little guy, Samson, loves the wildberry ones. I only give them to him on special occasions, and only a couple at a time. All things in moderation.
once again, LOVE the hover text!!!!
Imagine this scene from the yogurt drop’s perspective! Nose-to-drop disapproval. [shudder]
Yeah, if you’re gona get eaten, you want to at least be approved of!
I don’t think he disapproves of the yogurt drops per se. I think he disapproves of being photographed with his head in a jar looking undignified. Looking dignified is a huge part of evoking scorching disapproval.
And then . . . you get eaten! Aaaaa!
Why does Bunneh disapprove of the orange ones? Do they do something to earn the disapproval?
The mix looks so good… maybe he will let me have the orange ones so they won’t feel left out?
Teh orange ones… r… poysin.
Hey ! That’s what my hubby says about blue peanut M&M’s !
More for you! :)
That’s what I told him !
Oh, no! Not poysin! Aaaiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeek!
Happy Sunday and May Day Everypeep! Here are some flowers.
Thank you,QoD, but I gotst some flowers for reals this morning…. the crocuses under my apple tree are blooming. :) 5 beeyootiful teeny tiny blossoms. Sometimes it takes so little to make us happy. Le sigh.
May Day! May Day!
Merci bien —
Comme ces fleurs sont joli(e)s!!! :)
My lionhead bunny is 7 years old and very healthy, he eats dark chocolate chips with me every night since he was 8 weks old!
Your bun might be lucky then. I would absolutely NOT recommend feeding rabbits that, though; between the chocolate and the sugar a bunny can get very sick on people treats.
What Annie said. In uppercase letters. That is all.
According to the San Diego House Rabbit Society, it’s never to be given to a rabbit:
The reason for this is cumulative. The sugar content and acids in the chocolate upset the natural ruminant digestive micro flora and can cause stasis from an overpopulation of bacterium in the cecal pellets.
While this may not happen the first, or fifth, or twentieth time, at some point the buildup of bacteria will be such that the rabbit can’t digest properly and the entire GI tract will slow (stasis) and begin to fill with gas (bloat). This happens over the course a few hours.
The rabbit doesn’t want to eat or drink during this period and becomes listless, only moving in discomfort.
Then bunny’s temperature goes down and will require an abdominal accelerant, intravenous fluids, and incubation to survive and even fight the bacterial infection.
This all takes place within 24 hours. If you don’t catch it within the first half of the illness, your bun’s chances of surviving are severely reduced.
If a dog or a cat eats chocolate, it can eat some grass and vomit. Rabbits can’t vomit, can’t burp, can’t fart. So why risk it?
As a bunny mommy for over 13 years, i don’t know about the not farting or burping. I had one big New Zealand who loved to snuggle and look lovingly into your eyes and belch very loudly in your face. Also she was the Queen of SBD (Silent But Deadly) forms of gas. She would lay on the floor and then hop off so innocently and then once you got whiff, yikes. The vet said she was perfectly healthy and she did get yogurt drops as a treat.
Sure that wasn’t the smell of cecotropes? Finn is a stenchmeister when he gets going on one of those. It’s like BO mixed with skunk. blaaargh.
My first bun was like that too; we fed him all the wrong things due to ignorance, and he lived to be 10. I chalked it up to freakishly strong genes, or something. Buns like that aren’t typical AFAIK. My two buns after that had very delicate digestions and had serious GI stasis several times.
guess how many bundrops there are in this jar and win a free lifetime supply of “jellybeans”, if you know what i mean
snerk ! Giggling all the way to the snicker lounge.
Licorice Jelly beans! XD
Our bunny LOVES yogurt drops. Whenever we start to open the treat bag and he hears that crinkle of the plastic packaging, he goes nuts! He’ll step on my feet and try to climb my leg. …and if it’s not yogies that you’re getting (maybe opening up some different packaging), he gets very disheartened.
My rats do that too. They get so excited you would think they never have been fed.
Aww! He’s so cute smushing his head into a jar like that. :)
On a side note, I have the same mouse pjs in the background there… lol
