Luv-N-Bunns

Rescue and placement for abandoned bunnies in the Philadelphia area. We take in rabbits who are no longer wanted, have been abandoned, and/or have been abused. Once cleared by our vet, we have them neutered/spayed and find new, loving homes for each. In addition, we host various events to educate people about rabbits and their needs.

My lack of reading comprehension is your gain!! We still have 5 more shirts to get to our goal. So the campaign has been extended to a second batch. If you already ordered a t-shirt, it will ship out soon. The next leg of the campaign is open for 13 more days and will ship in August.

Sooo, get your tank top or t-shirt now!!!

Thanks,
Kristin

Here's an incredible story a Luv-N-Bunns adopter shared with us, with the photo tribute she created for her late bunny Julie, who was a therapy bunny, a great beauty, and a much beloved friend to bunnies and humans alike. <3

BUNNY CARE CORNER

Well hi there, everyone! How are you all doing on this sunny summer Tuesday? I have a lot of important things on the schedule for today : snoozing, munching, and playing. If I'm being honest, those things are actually on the schedule for EVERY day, because really, don't we all need that kind of hoppiness in our lives?

You know what else brings me so much hoppiness? Chatting with all of you! I want to take a minute to say a huge THANK YOU for reading my column each Tuesday. It makes me feel like doing the biggest, highest, twirliest binky to know that we have this fun space to share ideas with each other. And so this week, I thought we'd do just that! The LNB humans got an email a few days ago from a bunny mom named Suzanne, who has a super awesome tip for helping to pick up a rabbit that doesn't especially like to cooperate when it comes to that simple task-turned-adventure (am I right, friends? Us bunns do spin that into quite the adventure sometimes!)

Here's what she said:

"I was terribly troubled by getting my bunny into her carrier, sometimes it was taking 45 to 60 minutes and exhausting me out of my mind.

I have since developed a technique that has reduced the time to less than 5 minutes. Isabelle free roams so this just added to the struggle. I have attached 4 Modular cubes with zip ties and make a little movable fence. I surround Isabelle with it, against a wall, and can pick her right up. Sometimes she thumps her foot or tries to move it, but if I act quickly, the scoop up is over and she's in the carrier within a minute."

As one of those rabbits that still tries to outsmart any human who wants to scoop me up, I will (begrudgingly) admit that this is a great way to go about it.

It also got me thinking : how fun would it be if we could ALL share a suggestion? So I'm opening this up to everyone reading this - if you could give one tip to a new bunny parent, what would it be? And what is one thing you wish you knew about rabbits before welcoming one into your heart and home?

My Ma's tip is "always go with your instinct." She says that each person knows his or her bunny better than anyone else. If something seems off, don't push it aside. Listen to your intuition and pay attention to your bunny's cues. We are such fragile little loves, and so, if you think something isn't quite normal, please get it checked out right away so we can live long, happy, and healthy lives. The one thing my Ma wishes she knew before adopting me? Just how much I would rescue her, too. Excited as she was to bring me home, she says she never could have imagined all the ways I would brighten her world. Sometimes she sings "You Are My Sunshine" to me, and it makes my heart so happy that we have each other that I don't even tell her she really (REALLY) does not have the best singing voice.

And here are my answers!

My tip? Furniture is delicious. So are floors. And books. And carpeting. And blankets. Also, dishwashers and windows and walls and refrigerators. Bunny-proof wisely and thoroughly.

And the number one thing I wish all humans knew before adding a bunn to the family? One word: BANANAS. 😉

Now it's your turn : leave your answers in the comments so we can all share our thoughts. I can't wait to read them!

Until next time ...

Nose boops and binkies,
