Mama has been trying to bond me and Katie, so she hasn't had time to help me with my blog.

Katie and I are not bonded yet. I want to play! And I want her to groom me. I told her to groom me yesterday, but she wouldn't, so I jumped on her and chased her when she ran. I'm in charge here, Katie, so you might as well accept it and move on.

Sadly, she and Mama have not bonded yet, either. She doesn't seem to like Mama much beyond being the food lady. This makes Mama sad. I don't get it. I love getting pets. Why doesn't Katie???

At least Katie's not just sitting in her cage any more. She comes out to bounce, dig, and throw stuff like a proper bunny. So at least she's more interesting for me to watch now.

Our bunny garden is coming in nicely. It looks sooooo tasty. And the parsley we've been getting is so yummy and smells so good too. Mama also thinned the carrots this weekend and gave me and Katie the little green tops to the ones she pulled. Yum, yum, yum. Nothing like fresh produce that you've fertilized yourself.

Well, I'm gonna stare at Katie some more (she's really pretty) and then take a nice long bunny nap. I really do like being a bunny.

Lots of big news


I didn't realize I hadn't posted in so long. It's been a big month. First, Mama had finals and was so busy, and then! We got a new bunny!

Mama took me to a bunny shelter Saturday before last and let me meet some bunnies. I didn't know what was going on at first, but I was SO happy to see other bunnies! I met some very pretty girls. Sadly, not all of them liked me. I can't quite figure it out. I guess they didn't like it when I said I'm in charge. But Katarina, or Katie as we call her, didn't seem to mind me being in charge at all. I made sure she knew I was in charge, and she didn't run away or anything! Then she licked my ear.

Here's a picture of Katie:


Katie came home last Wednesday. It's so weird having another bunny here! At first, I was really worried that maybe Mama wouldn't love me so much anymore. But she does. I still get lots of pets and forehead rubs, and I get fed first, so I know I'm still lord of the manor.

But you know something else? Katie is really boring. Like, really really boring. She doesn't do anything! She just sits in her cage and eats hay. I would be sooooo bored! She doesn't even throw her food bowl or want to come out of her cage to bounce. Isn't that weird? The other night I sat outside her cage and watched her pretty much the entire time I was out, just to see if she would do something. Anything. Anything at all. Nope. Weird.

Anyway, on to something more exciting. Mama planted my bunny garden this weekend! Yay! We will get fresh parsley and carrots to eat! Mama planted lots of other stuff, too, like corn, beans, peas, onions, and flowers. I think she should have planted all stuff for me. Oh well. I guess I can share.

Well, I'll keep everyone updated about my yummy garden and my boring sister.

The great outdoors


I am blogging from the great outdoors. It's such a nice sunny spring day that Mama decided to spend it on the balcony, and she brought me out with her. I'm still not entirely sure about this place, but I'm in my cage, so I know I'm safe from anything that wants to get me. My cage is mostly out of the sun (but I can sit in the sun and eat hay if I want - that's kind of nice) and Mama put a bottle of frozen water in here for me in case I get hot and want to sit by something cool.

There's a nice breeze blowing, and it feels funny on my ears and fur. And my butt. But I kinda like it, and I even lay down for awhile with my butt facing the wind. A little airing out back there never hurt anybody.

Yesterday was my birthday. We think I'm 3, but who knows for sure. Mama adopted me on April 17, 2007, and they thought I was 1 then, so we just made that date my birthday. Anyway, I had a really good day. Mama was home, and even though she was working on a school project, I got lots of bounce time. I also got bits of carrot in both my breakfast and supper. YUM! But the best part? PRESENTS!!! I got treats and toys and gift bags and tissue paper! It was awesome!

Well, I am going to enjoy some more of this nice spring breeze. Have a good weekend, everybody!

Public Service Announcement

Ok, readers. Serious topic time.

Now, I know I am adorable, and many of you are thinking, "Oh, how I want a bunny of my own!" And that's great, but since we are getting near Easter, I have a request.

Please, please do not give live bunnies as Easter presents! We are not good pets for little kids and are an 8-10 year long daily commitment, not a fluffy toy. Lots of people get their kids a bunny or two for Easter, but then the kids get bored and the parents get sick of taking care of it. Lots of bad stuff can happen next. Maybe they will neglect the bunny. Or maybe they'll just dump him. Open up the back door, or drop him by the side of the road. Pet bunnies don't know how to fend for themselves, and will get hurt or killed by animals or people. If the bunny is "lucky", he'll get dumped at a shelter. Unfortunately, this probably means the bunny will be euthanized.

So please, only give stuffed or chocolate bunnies at Easter time.

But, if you do want a bunny, and I totally get why because we are so cute and make wonderful companions, wait until after Easter. After a few weeks, people will start dumping those unwanted Easter bunnies, and there will be lots in shelters waiting for a second chance. Just like me.

I found this poem on, and thought I'd repost it here:

Twas the Night Before Easter

'Twas the night before Easter, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The baskets were ready for eggs they would find
Hidden by the Easter Bunny so cute and so kind.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds
With no thought of their bunny who hadn’t been fed.
With Ma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap
We knew he was hungry but we needed a nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But the Easter Bunny - with eyes full of tears.

He un-caged the rabbit, once lively and quick,
Last year's Easter Gift, now lonely and sick.
More rapid than eagles he called the bunn’s name
And with a few binkies, the bunny happily came.

"You poor little soul, so sad and alone,
With no one to love you in this so-called home.
How quickly they forgot about your joys and your needs.
Come with me, Little One, come with me please.

Run with me, Bunny, stretch your legs tall!
Let's find you a home where you’ll be loved by all."
The Easter Bunny left no chocolates that year
But he certainly made one thing quite clear.

The gift of a rabbit is not just for the season,
We had gotten the bunny for all the wrong reasons.
“A bunny would make a great gift!” was our thought
But there was one important thing we forgot.

A bunny should be family, and loved just as much,
Not locked in a cage and denied human touch.
They need more than a name, a pat and a meal,
They need companionship and love that is real.

And I heard him exclaim as he dashed out of sight
"You weren't given a gift! You were given a LIFE!"

I love weekends!

I had the BEST weekend, everybody! Mama was home and I got to be out in my pen all day long both days. And in the evening I got to bounce for a long time and get lots of pets and forehead rubs. It was pretty cool. Mama said she was tired of looking at screens, so the tv was off, the computer was off, and it was just me and Mama. I liked that alot.

Saturday, I got into the front closet to play. I used be able to play in there all the time til Mama saw that I was chewing on her shoes and had chewed holes in her golf bag. But I snuck in on Saturday and played with the doorstop for awhile.

Then, at bedtime, I got fresh mint in my salad. Yum yum! I love mint. Then I got a bedtime story! I love stories, especially ones about bunnies. She started reading me Watership Down, which is about some very brave bunny heroes. It's exciting! Instead of settling down to go to sleep, I sat up in my litter box and watched Mama intently as she read while I gobbled up hay like popcorn.

On Sunday, I got a nice long brushing. And this is how good I've trained my Mama - she rubbed my forehead with one hand as she brushed with the other, and every couple of strokes would touch the brush to a metal lamp base so my fur wouldn't get so staticy. How's that for good human training? I should write a book on it.

After my brushing, Mama and I played tag. I'd give her a nosebonk then hop just out of her reach. I'd let her tag me so I'd get pets, then I'd give her another nosebonk, hop away, and we'd go again. Sometimes I'd even nosebonk her from behind, and by the time she turned around, I'd be out of reach. Ha ha! It was lots of fun.

At bedtime, I got some more yummy mint, and Mama read to me again from Watership Down. The bunnies have just left their warren in search of a safe new home, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Hi. It's officially springtime! It makes me feel bouncy.

I've had lots and lots of bunny energy lately. I've hopping all over the place, on the furniture, knocking stuff over. It's lots of fun.

Unfortunately, some of my fun has gotten me into trouble. So I like to chew door frames. And baseboards. And carpet. And cords. And books. What's the big deal? I'm a bunny - I chew. It's what we do. But Mama does think it's a big deal. *sigh* And I got sent to bed early without a treat the other night. I don't like that at all. I'm just following my bunny nature. I threw my toys around my cage to let Mama know I was unhappy about my treat deprivation.

I think I need to get more stealthy about my chewing. Does anybody have any suggestions about how I can do this???

Happy bunny

Hi. It's all nice and sunshiny out. I like that. Does this mean spring is coming???

So, I've been a pretty happy little furball. Mama is all better now, and is spending lots of time with me. I'm getting lots of brushing, pets, and forehead rubs. I get snuggle time every night before bedtime. I like to nuzzle Mama's face with mine, and then she'll give me a kiss on the forehead.

And I got to see my Grandma yesterday! Yay! She is going to visit my uncle and auntie and she stayed with us last night. So I got even more pets and forehead rubs. And one of my favorite treats! Grandmas are awesome.

I've been playing in my playhouse lots, and I'm even making another door for myself. I love my playhouse. I have a stuffed bunny friend in there, a blankie, and the other day, I found a treat in there! Yay!

Well, I am going to toss around my toy ball, then finish my breakfast. Then I'll take a bunny nap!
