Despite often being thought of as low maintenance cage pets, rabbits actually require a good amount of exercise, both physical and mental, to be happy. My rabbit, Barnaby, is a senior who just turned 10 last November. Barnaby has definitely slowed down a bit with age. He often times prefers a leisurely stroll around his room over running about like a crazy bun. He sleeps more than he used too. That being said, Barnaby still very much engages with the world around him. ...continue reading "Barnaby’s Not a Huge Fan of Snow"
Happy 2016! I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start. The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year. The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch. We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"
Today is Barnaby's 10th birthday! ...continue reading "Happy 10th Birthday, Barnaby!"
Everyone knows I love my dogs. They aren't the most relaxing creatures to live with, though. My two, yes even 7 year old Kitsune, are high energy. Our house is usually a frenzy of walks, training sessions, wrestling, and games. It's a lot of fun and is, most of the time, something I very much enjoy. Once in awhile I do appreciate a bit of peace and quiet. To find it in this house, my best bet is usually to spend some time with my lower key animal friends - Barnaby and the geckos. ...continue reading "Relaxing With Barnaby"
I've had the pleasure of sharing my life with house rabbits since getting my first one, Zeus, in 2006. Zeus, unfortunately, was only with us for two years, but he installed in me a love for rabbits that has caused me to not only adopt four of my own (one of which is currently still with us), but also to become an active member of the rabbit rescue community.
Not everyone seems to be aware of the fact that, unfortunately, domestic rabbits are rehomed, and abandoned, in high numbers throughout the US. There are many reasons why a pet owner may choose to give up a pet - but the one I want to focus on in this post is allergies. ...continue reading "Keep The Rabbit, Switch The Hay!"
All my pets, Barnaby included, are pretty spoiled. But it's been quite awhile since I last bought rabbit toys. Homemade toys are cheap; many of them can be made with common household items that would probably end up being discarded anyways. They're a great option for destructive rabbits, because they are affordable and easy to replace! If you're looking for fun new toy for your furry friend, consider checking out these bunny approved homemade toy ideas!

Did you know that rabbits can tolerate cold weather much easier than they can tolerate heat? With the temperatures on the rise around much of the country, it's important to make sure you protect your rabbits from the summer heat. ...continue reading "Protecting Your Rabbit From The Summer Heat"
