Bunnular Advice from a Farm Boy

“Being an old farm boy… and having raised rabbits for years when I was still back on the farm… I wish people knew that if they handle baby rabbits… the mom’s will often reject or kill them. The smell from the person’s hands often changes the identity markers for the mother.

My father… used to keep a bottle of Imitation Vanilla in the Rabbit house (about 200does.) When one mother would have a lot (up to 12) and another had only a couple… he’d rub the Imitation Vanilla on his hands… rub all the bunnies… rub the momma’s nose… The vast majority of the time, she’d take them. By the time the Vanilla wore off… they smelled like her. Probably more info that you needed.

Keep up the good work on the site. I just don’t know how you could approach this subject and save folks some heartache.

Good luck,

“I LOVE HIM!!!”

Sender-Inner Courtney says: “My dog found this little dude hanging around our fire bowl (no, it wasn’t lit!). We called the wildlife rescue people and they told us to just put it back and cover it up with the fluff left around the nest. I saw the mama bunny this evening so I hope this baby makes it. I LOVE HIM!!! Seriously, I cannot stress enough how cute he is. Really.”

Yes, Courtney, we’d like you to update us on his progress. Only if it’s good news, though.

Throw some ‘tocks on the barby

I know you’re all busy out there barbecuing and slurping your Miller Genuine Drafts. Can you throw some ‘tocks on the barby for me? I like ‘em pink in the middle.

Jan W. I need some Bearnaise dipping sauce too…

Post “Flop”

I’ve heard that when bunnehs decide it’s time to lay down, they lay down with a vengeance, known as a “flop”. I’m sure you bunneh-types out there can confirm or deny this theory.

Behold exhibit A:

Jon S. saw his dwarf Lionhead “Bushel” is post “flop” at this point.

Mo’ Bunny Feets.

Mornin’, Peeps. Got a two-fer for ya. This first one hails from March 21 of 2007

If you smooosh this bun into the keyboard, he’d prolly clean some lint out. Of course he’d disapprove of this, being a bunny and all, so proceed at yer own risk.

anti-static version also available (highly recommended)

Klean Kai Bun and Crisel, thank you!

Sender-Inner Andrew J. bravely says: “Saw this little guy gettin’ beat on by the neighbor cat. Like some kind of Superman, I swooped down, and fended off the feline felon. He’s now sleepin’ one off in an old shoe box…”

even the toebeans are fluffy

GOOD WORK, Andrew J. Keeping the world safe, one delicious bunny toe at a time. [sigh.]

Some say the world will end in fire

Some say furry suits…

HAPPY EASTER!

Daniel P. titled this submission “Easter Excitement!” and he couldn’t be righter.

This Easter bunny has more Face Chub than usual

Remember this Easter bun? He has a super adorable (and super rare) ENTIRE PERIPHERAL FACE ROLL. That’s right, a roll of chub around his ENTIRE FACE. Let’s hope he can still see around it for egg delivery.
