      Well, it’s technically June so I thought I should start a new thread if I’m gonna post a pic. And I don’t post pics very often. LOL

       This is what I’m always talking about. Here’s Leopold being insanely adorable. I try to take a pic and this is what I end up with. *sigh* Notice Wooly hiding in the background as if to say “I’m having nothing to do with this”.

      Here’s a pic of Theo cuddling/begging for pets on the sofa with me:

      And a pic of him acting like he owns the place. Which he, of course, does. 

      Theo lives with my fiance at the moment and I used to live in a flat 10 mins away. We are getting married in just over 2 week (eeeeeek) and I’ll be moving in to his house. For the last 4 weeks or maybe more actually though I’ve been living over an hour away from Theo since my flat lease was up. I miss him so much . My fiance claims I miss Theo more than I miss him (no comment lol)

      Moxie- My husband went on the scale with him and says he weighs about 9lbs. We will have a more accurate weight at his check-up today.

      LBJ10- Yes, prepare for lots of pics

      Q8bunny- lol, he does do a lot of periscoping. More than I’ve ever seen a bunny do.

      So Sterling is pretty close in size range as Moxie. Now just imagine Sterling covered in 3-4 inch long fur/fuzz, black, and you’ve got Moxie.

      The Munchkins, Vinny (left) and Velvet (right/rear), are a happily bonded brother/sister pair rescued from the streets last August.  They love their human sister, Christine.  They are a year old last month.  You may be familiar with their brother, Ryuk!

      Tilly (blue) and Duncan (agouti) are still a happy couple.  (Tilly is currently in a minor molt)  They are not as hands on with the baby, but don’t mind her.  They’ll be more interested when she’s old enough to give them treats, like her cousins!

      Hi Cottontail! Congratulations on the birth of your little girl!!! Andi told me recently that she had arrived. How has motherhood been? : )

      I just love how the rexies look like they are watching over her. Nice to see you and the bunnies again!

      @LPT, it looks like Everly and Sterling are BFF’s already. So cute! I can’t put my finger on it but I feel like he is one or under a year old. Maybe ask Everly? Maybe they talk.

      Lol @ Olaf rolling off top of the sofa!! Haha. Nice capture.

      Ahh! Buddy’s face!!!

      Cottontail: The Munchkins and baby Christine! Adorable! And Tilly and Lord Duncan, the Bun We Didn’t Get To Name!

      Pinkn’wuffy: Olaf looks like a little bird almost =)

      Vienna: she does look good wearing that rose. My buns refuse the flowers, they only want the rose greens. Which is silly because a bun eating a flower is a gorgeous sight.

      I took these pictures in auto mode, and they still turned out nicely, I think! Hopefully they will get better with practice. 

      Vienna, the blurred background is great! Love this camera!

      LPT: What a cute picture of Everly and Winnie!  And Bindi, oh boy. That’s some disapproval!

      Theo, awww! Sooo sleepy!

      Bam is so cute! 

      You guys are right, Mosby is getting huge! He’s an 8 lbs monster now, which is ironic considering he’s only 5 months old and still has all his baby teeth. He looks like a toothless old man right now, he could fit twice as many teeth in his giant mouth!

      The boys hanging out:

       

       

      O: “Hey Mose, have you ever noticed that the human’s face is pretty much bald?”

      M: “You’re riiight… GROSS!!!”

       

       

      L: “Ewww, it IS bald…”

      M: “Not as bald as your ears.”

       

       

      L: “%$#&…!”

      Here’s my dramatic little boy. I wove him a paper mat from paper strips that arrived in the mail. He had a blast tearing it up.

      And we went to the vet to get him checked up and to schedule an appointment for neutering (nervous mother here!) and Chomondeley was not pleased. He peed all over the floor.  Luckily, the vet was quite understanding.

      He is unimpressed with his special door though. Mr. Jack says: “Well OF COURSE my mama gave me my own door to the couch. She couldn’t possibly expect me to use only one door in my new apartment. Any condo worthwhile has a backdoor in case of emergency.”

      Even our vet last year when he saw him in his first big shed said that he never before met bunny like him.

      Snowball is adorable, my lionhead Bianca has similar sleeping poses, it’s just cuteness overload.

      For little Louise, most of that chart is a “Meh.” Except the head, of course, which is still a “Yes!!” As long as I don’t overdo it, she doesn’t really mind poking and petting, no matter where it is. 

      She’ll even flip over (yes, of her own free will!) and lay that way until she gets a good belly rub, sometimes. (It’s completely strange to me, especially since I’ve only had her about a month!)

      Nearly half of my guinea pigs like/have liked belly rubs, so maybe its not so surprising the odd bun does, though its the first time I’ve heard a rabbit like it.

      You are so lucky

      Is it just me, or do all owners of red-eyed rabbits have the problem with their rabbit’s eyes looking like they are evil, I think it’s cute the way Zeke looks with his eyes like that.

      She is well suited to be Alice now.

      Second, I am positive Pippi and skysblue bunny where in contact abot that world domination thing as Jesry said. I know it’s a tough but somebun gotta do it. (And now all I can hear is Faith no More song with bit changed lyrics)

      Laurora Louis is adorable overload, like a cartoon character.

      all that rain must have something to do with the mega dandelions, as I’ve just found dozens in the back garden that are over a foot long, though none as wide as the ones in Zou’s mouth!

      2244 posts Send Private Message

      Yep, keep them away from Zou while drying!

      I collect around midday, when its hot and sunny, so the leaves are as dry as possible, and then spread them out inside a big cardboard box, the card seems to speed things up? I leave the box in full sun, and toss the leaves with my hands each time I pop out to check on the buns. Then I bring the box in that evening and leave the box in the garage for as long as it takes to totally dry out, then a bit longer before bagging them! I toss them all at least once a day. Its a lot of work, but come winter, everybun n piggy will be glad of all those leaves. If you have any big daisies nearby, their leaves are quicker to collect, but take more drying, but I am mixing them in the batch I’m drying now, plus some nettles, given Podge seems to do best on a forage mix. The nettles are in a different box til dry enough to not sting my hands! Then I’ll toss them in with the others.

      The leaves from that stalk were fairly normal size??? Strange huh?


    • Vienna Blue in France

      5317 posts Send Private Message

      Yup, and the huge leaves I got didn’t have a stalk!! (that I could find anyway!) – maybe the energy goes into the stalk and not the leaves….?
      I tossed my devonshire dandelions for days !! They came back in the car with me sprawled out on the back of the car so no fermentating happened…. still had to dry for 2 days at home.
      Right – I’m going out NOW to collect some (saw some wicked ones on my roundabout earlier in the car) and I’ll try again…..

      I think a lot of the energy goes into the stalk or rather the bud/flower/seeds. It’s true for grasses, once they’ve gone into seed, the grass isn’t at all as nutritious any longer. You can choose to harvest hay 2 or 3 times per season (in some climates 4 times) if you harvest 3 times you get richer hay but a smaller yield and vice versa. I recently read about that because, well, I am a bunny owner and thus obsessed with foraging =D

      So Vienna and GJ, are you excited about the vote tomorrow? I’m quite excited and I’m not even voting (obviously). It really feels quite fateful (if that’s the word I’m looking for).

      Does anyone know what the “horseshose” plant (with a so-called horseshoe shaped leaf) is….? It was in the bunny foraging speech at the Pet Show and apparently it’s everywhere…. apparently.

      Is it tussilago farfara you mean? Yellow flowers no leaves in early spring, often along roads and/or on sandy ground, big horse-shoe shaped leaves and no flowers in the summer?

      leaves, how they look this time of year:  tussi 

      flowers in early spring: tussilago flowers

      Oh goodness knows bam ! That is indeed horsehoe-y shaped (thanks to Google!).
      I do remember now her saying something like they’re fine for buns before the flowers come, but as soon as the flowers arrive (or just after?) they release some sort of toxin (or other) so not good for buns… Actually, that’s probably why I sort of deleted it from my memory !

      I’ve brought some brambles back with me tonight – but she’s not impressed !!


    • Bam

      It would be some other flower then because with tussilago, the flowers come first. I remember you said dock leaves were fine befor the flowers came, right after you’d been ato the pet show. The toxin would then be oxalic acid.

      I think tussilago leaves are non-toxic but I haven’t tried them on the buns. But you can make cough med for humans from them if you make an infusion with alcohol (havent tried that either I’m afraid).

      Any thoughts on thistles for rabbits? Some sites list them as safe, but I’d be worried about a spiky bit getting stuck in a buns mouth, so although I have quite a few that keep growing back every time I remove them, so far haven’t risked trying them as food.

      I’ve tried thistles. They won’t eat the really thorny ones but there is a type they really like, it has white milk sap and somewhat fleshy, dark green leaves and only a little bit of not-so-sharp thornes. I don’t know what it’s called but maybe I can take a pic tomorrow.

      I totally just rubbed Coco’s scrumptious nose on my iPad.

      Bam: I wonder if tussilago was named for its medicinal uses? Isn’t tussere Latin for cough, or am I hallucinating due to the heatwave?

      Vienna: Lucky girl, being in the thick of it. Spain’s stuck playing Italy, much to the former’s chagrin, so I’m a nervous wreck – I hate the elimination phase. I’m also quite on pins and needles about the referendum. I love spending time in the UK and having an EU passport made it so much easier. But I also understand their reasons for wanting to pull out. If I could vote, I think I’d be quite torn.

      We have both types, and yes the not-so-sharp type are fine, its the sharp ones I’m wary of, and of course, they are the type we have most of!

      Maybe I could use nail clippers to clip the really sharp ends? Or is that taking things too far?

      As far as the vote goes, yes an exciting day, but a bit eclipsed in our house, as my youngest has a two hour biology exam, followed by a three hour Cambridge maths exam, STEP 3, which he has to get one of the top 2 grades on to secure his place at Cambridge, followed by his final chess tournament of the year (Chess year ends 30th Jun).

      Q8, the name tussilago is derived from tussere. I ought to pick some leaves and make cough med for the long winter to come.
      G.J, thistles are really tough to get rid of, they have long horizontal roots deep in the ground =( Love the nail-clipper idea though. That’s taking foraging for bunpigs to a whole new level. I can see how the vote is kind of over-shadowed by what’s going on in your family. Yay for your (human) boys!!!

      Latte dived into some fresh hay last year, a little too enthusiastically, and scratched his eye on something sharp. It was only a tiny scratch, but the eye gradually clouded over and I’m pretty sure he is now blind in that eye. I know its not possible to check every handful of hay, but I felt awful at the time, and it has left me over cautious of anything nasty and scratchy, and I don’t want any bun or pig with an injured mouth…

      I think it will take my youngest a long time to wind down tonight!

      Re thistles, sow thistle can be popular with some bunnies. Stay away from thorny scotch thistle though. VB, I hope you didn’t toss the brambles that Zou snubbed. Good to keep dried for times when off their food or other tum problems.

      GJ, I’m sorry about Latte’s eye, but I don’t think there’s any way to really prevent that, hay being hay and bunpigs being dependant on long-stranded hay.

Also, I made the mistake of looking at rabbits on Craigslist. My heart broke especially for a sweet little black Lionhead, female (apparently) in my area, kids aren’t treating her right. Now I’ll be thinking about her and how she might go to a bad family for weeks.

Toss toss tossing salad all afternoon… then speedy recovery into the wendyhouse (where I was!) when a bizarre downpour occured in the middle of two heatwave hours, and into the WH again overnight… they are nowhere near being dry yet….

      Cat’s name is Tisha She’s like a dog, follows me everywhere but seems to have gotten older since Kyra the dog passed.
      Leaves not dry yet !!! When they are I’ll fill the drawer up again – that won’t keep a monster bun going for long !!

      Tisha, what a cute name

      As per request, Dory. Same pic that I posted in the thread I had about her, but couldn’t find another decent one quick enough, don’t think I’ve copied them over to the computer yet. This was taken a couple weeks ago, but she still looks the same, just has a cleaner beak more often

      I didn’t see the first pic! They are AMAZING colours on her !! Wow – thanks

      Tisha is the English spelling that I modified to the old owners’ name of ‘Tichat’ which means “little cat” in French (petit chat)
      (I usually call Teeeeeesh when I want her to come….)

      Yes, she’s certainly very stunning. She’s missing most of her neck feathers except the downy ones so I’m really hoping she’ll let those grow back in and then we’ll see her in her full glory

      And that is so cute! Little Cat I like the modification to it to Tisha as well

      Dory’s gorgeous! She looks like a fauvist painting come to life.

      She looks as if a child has colored in a coloring book parrot picture with a vivid imagination and in really totally impossible vivid colours…..

      Haha yes, she is very bright!

      Cutest hag bag thieves I’ve ever seen Sterling and Evi seem to have a wonderful bond.

      Ajax looks like he’s loving the time outside Always love the super cute face cleaning photos too. Also I just love his hair-do

      LPT: How cute they both are! Everly and Sterling seem to just love each other!

      Azerane: That is one pretty birdie! More pictures please! 

      Ajax looks pretty dapper out there, and very proud of himself! Love his hair! He’s beautiful, if I didn’t know better I would guess he’s a lady. Don’t tell him I said that, though.

      Sorry there’s so much kitty in the pics, every time I try to take some of Oscar, he has to get in the middle of it. 

       

      Sharing some kale:

      M: “You sure this is edible?”

       

      O: “Yup, try it!”

       

       

      M: “Okay…”

       

       

       

      M: “Mine’s gross, let me try yours!”

      O: “TAKE YOUR STINKING PAWS OFF ME, YOU DAMN DIRTY CAT!!!”

      Awww, your bun and your kitty are just lovely together!

       

      We’ve had a bad start of the summer so far: lots of rain and cold weather. But whenever there’s a small ray of sun, Breintje is sure to catch it!

      (sorry, pics taken with a mobile phone cam which is only slightly better than taking pics with a potato)

      @Ellie – lmao !! I have a very good friend who is Dutch and I can just hear those words coming out of her mouth – same humour or same translated saying… not sure, but still I laughed !

      @Hazel – go camera girl, go !! lol – that first one just shows Mosby as a lion cousin – amazing ressemblance – very majestic pose.
      And Oscar in the second one with his mouth open could be heard as saying in a Bugs Bunny way “waaaarr what’s up doc? !!” lol

      Hihi, I’m quite proud of my Dunglish, and complaining about our lousy weather is considered our national sport. 

      It’s true though, the Dutch love to soak up the sun because we don’t get much. (Maybe also because it’s free?) Hell, we even book all-inclusive vacations to the Mediterranean to be cooped up with a lot of other fanatical sunbathers. If our national colour wasn’t orange it’d be sun-burn red 

       

      Jessica, your fluff is seriously cute! Enjoy your grooming sessions ^_^

      Sorry there’s so much kitty in the pics, every time I try to take some of Oscar, he has to get in the middle of it. 

       

      Thanks I do need to get more photos of her out of the cage. Trouble is it’s quite dark and dreary here lately, and I can’t have the main light on in the room when she’s out. Because of the type of globe, the lights gets really hot and she has tried to land on them before so for her safety I keep the main lights off which means there’s not much light for photography, and I do try not to use the flash on her.

      And why would you apologise for pictures of the kitty. He is so stinking cute! He and Oscar make such a great pair Super fun sequence of photos too

      Having said all that, here’s a pic of her messy face after eating. She wipes it off of her beak onto the bars and then eats it off the bars later, lol. Regarding her neck, that’s how she was when I found her. She has plucked a little more since then exposing a little bit of skin, but she’s also letting some grow in so we’ll see how that progresses. I’m hoping it will improve the longer she’s here and once she gets a larger cage. She was obviously a plucker before, but it seemed pretty healthy in terms of growth so it makes me sad that it’s only gotten worse since she got here.

      Thanks for the compliments, guys!

      Vienna:  I love Oscar’s open mouth. It looks so weird! Mosby seems to think he’s a lion, but he’ll look more like it once he gets his mane. I’ve read that oftentimes it grows in after they get neutered. Only 6 more months to go! Unless he starts spraying, then it’s off to the vet for him…

      Azerane: Awww, she’s so cute! And it sounds like she’s getting spoiled, poor you living in the dark just for her!  I had to laugh at her smearing the food on the bars for later! Maybe she likes it a little dried up and crispy.  I bet she’ll slow down on the plucking soon, who knows how she was kept before, maybe she’s still a little stressed from that, as well as from her escape. It certainly isn’t your fault, you’re taking care of her so well.

      Ellie you made me laugh so hard when I read what you put about taking pictures with a potato, I think I woke my neighbour up, hmmm a potato would take better pictures than my camera phone, a baked potato at that.

      You gave me an idea.

      Thanks guys She is super spoiled that’s for sure. It’s tough to say how the plucking started. Her neck may have been completely bare in her old home and it grew in after her escape (who knows how long she was out). Or she started plucking after her escape. It’s difficult to know. I would have thought that a captive bird in the wild would be far too busy to have time for plucking.

      Jessica, thanks so much for the compliments on my channel I really want to get back into it, but obviously have to wait until I have a bunny again. I’m hoping to add bird videos with Dory but I’m holding off on that until we’ve had her a while longer.
