Rabbit Awareness Week....

is being publicized in Great Britain right now. We can publicize it here too especially because the RSPCA put together a great video emphasizing some elements of bunny care that are often neglected...space and stimulation. Bunnies need a goodly amount of exercise and access to a spacious...protected and supervised...yard is best for this...bunnies also need lots of environmental stimulation. Take a look at some happy bunnies.....



Bunnies are bright, complex beings with multiple needs that must be provided for. As I noted in my previous post, if you do all you can for the bunny, you might get acknowledged with some "teeth-purring" or you might get thumped off. That's one of the interesting things about hanging out with the lagomorphs.

One aspect of bunny behavior very much worth emulating?  Living as an ethical vegan.

That's a great video! Brought a smile to my face which wasn't the easiest thing to do lately. Good for the RSPCA and all of you who advocate for bunnies. They really do seem to get a raw deal :( so more awareness is definitely needed.

Thank you for commenting Krissa. Sorry for the smile shortage, maybe this will start a new trend. :-)

WoW! All that non-stop bouncing energy from veggies! Apparently plants are doing lagomorphs wonders!
Especially when they have the space and freedom to be who they are! (insert teeth-purring emoticon here).
