• We’ve been spending most of our online bunny time on FB lately, and even have a page up for the buns ( “Vinny and Velvet”) but I’ve been wondering about our friends that aren’t on FB or not on much. This forum was such a huge support and help from the beginning with the buns so we had to pop in to say hello. It was Duncan’s gotcha day last…[Read more]

    Sorry for the delay; just got back to the site. We got very lucky with Pete. He was only using the litter box as a dust bath until he saw our lady cat use it.. then that was it; 90%+ in the box. Until then we made sure that his home base was where he felt most comfortable with it, his box was in a corner of homebase with some soft grasses and…[Read more]

    Lyss– I hate that I’m not as active on this forum as I used to be, but I would like to share my experiences with my beloved Pete with you. If you want to see a glimpse of what it was like living with an eastern cottontail, I can direct you to some old threads: The Non-Adventures of Peter Rabbit:…[Read more]

    i believe that they might actually be fuzzy little dragons! They are so destructive! Especially to each other! Velvet immediately came to me for comfort and Tilly hid until I called her. They are my two most affectionate and my two most likely to cause a vet visit or heartburn. I love my ladies… but down the road if we add another bun…[Read more]

    I’m such a bad BBer! I got caught up with bunny drama again and haven’t been back on here. Guess who’s involved AGAIN? Velvet. She is seriously trying to outdo Pete for the most expensive bunny! Long story short, I messed up and left a gap in the barricade about an inch wide and she stuck her nose in, resulting in Tilly latching on to it!…[Read more]

     I have been playing with the Prisma App on my phone and putting up pictures on Vinny and Velvets page.  This is part of their new banner. Eventually I’ll have the ability to break out my paints again and actually make paintings rather than just rendering them!

    The bunnies have mixed feelings about Christine. They know she is a baby, I think. They’ll go up to her for attention but are cautious about how she’s waving her hands around. She’s grabbbed Tilly pretty hard once but luckily no injury and Tilly just turned and shot her this look like she was offended.. then the moment the baby let go she…[Read more]

    2016 is almost over! Time to break out a new siggy! I have to say, I have never gotten into GoT… every time I turned the channel to it to see if it’s interesting or not, someone is having sex or getting covered in blood so I gave it a pass.

  • BTW: Congratulations!

  • We had a baby this past April, and we have 4 buns in the house ranging from a year to 4 years at the time she came home. What we did was prepare them the same way you prepare a cat or dog… find some clips of babies crying on youtube and play them on a low sound setting until the bunnies are comfortable with it (as if it’s muffled from another…[Read more]

    Hello, all! I admit first thing that I have not caught up on forums or on this thread, but I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful belated Thanksgiving. I’ve been going through old pictures and came across my BB stuff and felt the need to drop back in. I hope everyone is doing well!

  • My Tilly has multi-colored eyes as well.
    Nothing to worry about, but a lovely identifying feature.

    Q8 – I feel you with the thermostat. I would love to keep it around 80 in my home, but the bunnies, the baby, and my husband would kill me! lol They’re all happy about 70… Tilly is even happier when it gets to the mid-to-low 60s, but the other buns are spoiled and get grumpy when it’s too chilly.

    Moxie– those cookies sound delicious… I make some with spice cake mix, and a can of pumpkin in place of the whip cream and egg. Easy gooey pumpkin pie cookies! And thank you, Bam. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one that sees cottontails and think of Pete. I have become addicted to a FB page for “Mister” who is a cottontail…[Read more]

    Moxie- The bunny’s name was Jack Black; and I’m not sure if anyone here knows him and his momma or not, so I’m not going to leave her name… He was a sweet boy, and only 3 years old, but it was obvious how much he loved his momma. MB is okay: and so is Gus. She’s been staying pretty busy down here, but so have I lately, so we’ve been…[Read more]

  • Cottontail replied to the topic June Chat in the forum THE LOUNGE 3 years, 4 months ago

    Thank you, everyone. ^_^ I’ll get you some more pictures of the furry ones and little Christine! I’ve just been so swamped with the baby that I really ever get on FB anymore. I’m trying to correct that though. This weekend has been a bit rough for me emotionally. Velvet got in a fight with TIlly and had to get some liquid stitches and…[Read more]

  • I’m glad to hear a positive outcome on long-term bonding issues. We have 2 pair we’ve been doing bonding sessions on and off with long hiatuses due to human health/events.. It’s going on 7-8 months and the boys are okay most of the time with each other, but get jealous of the girls… And the girls both want to be alpha, which upsets the boys…[Read more]

    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…[Read more]

    Hi Bam! ^_^ We’re staying really busy with the little one and the fluffle, but we’re doing well! There’s drama as always but we’re making the most of it and trying to enjoy the good stuff. How have you been?
