One of the adorable cards available from the RSPCA.
Spread some love this Valentine’s Day with a Rally Round a Rabbit Charity Gift. You can send a sweet card to your special someone and support a rabbit cared for by the RSPCA at the same time!
Choose either an e-card or a printed card. 100% of the profit benefits bunnies. (More animal Valentine’s gifts are available here.)
Another idea is to make a donation on someone’s behalf to a local rabbit rescue. Rabbit rescues will certainly appreciate the support.
Don’t forget- February is Adopt a Rescued Rabbit month!
Two new children’s e-books by Dr. Jan S. Smith have just been released featuring an adorable house rabbit. Both are written in charming rhyme so you can read aloud to your child.
There have been quite a few books featuring rabbits recently published, from fictional works to how-to guides. Check them out:
Time Travel Rabbit
Momi Douglas takes readers on a fantastic adventure following an elderly professor and his pet rabbit as they travel around the world and between dimensions. The book is endorsed by the founder of PETA and was inspired by the author’s own Dutch rabbit named Pebbles.
Order the book at Amazon.
Sweetie’s Song: A Love Story
In this tale for readers of all ages, we follow Fred and Sarah Davis, a grieving couple living in Texas. Their lives get turned upside down when they realize the three toy rabbits they recently acquired are more than just inanimate objects. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund – a 4-Star charity that serves United States military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families.
Order the book at Amazon.
Congratulations to Amber who won our Bunny Holiday Card Giveaway!
We had some fantastic responses to the question in our giveaway, What’s your best piece of advice for new bunny owners? Amber’s piece of advice was:
I always tell new rabbit owners: when trying to understand bunny habits, think of a rabbit more like a cat than a large hamster. They are much more curious, interactive and clever than I think most people anticipate.
Here are a few more responses:
- Be patient! It takes bunnies so much longer to trust and form bonds than a cat or a dog, but it’s so rewarding once they do. I also preach the glory of cord protectors.
- Spend time with your buns. They are not cage animals. I’ve found that the personalities of our two rabbits really came out when we allowed them to hop around the house freely. Also, if you have access to fresh hay, buy it! The hay at the pet stores is expensive and my rabbits don’t really care for it much. But the fresh hay I buy at the MSPCA @ Nevins Farm, they absolutely love!
- Make sure you potty train your new bun! And feed him or her lots of hay
- Read lots of bunny books and articles to be sure you’re getting different perspectives! Also, get a big box and cut out a slot so they can jump in and fill it with newspaper and cardboard to protect your carpet and furniture!!!
- Get in touch with your local House Rabbit Society chapter. Its always good to be a part of a community of experienced bunny people who can answer any question you have.
For all the great answers, see the comments on our giveaway post.
Flat Bonnie, for those of you who don’t know, is an adorable plush rabbit made for bunny lovers. When you adopt a Flat Bonnie, a portion of the proceeds benefits the House Rabbit Society and other rabbit rescues.
Flat Bonnie’s been around for a while now, but I just learned about her new little friends. All bunny owners will recognize these little guys. I present: Oopsie and Poopsie!
This duo is available for purchase for $12 at FlatBonnie.com.
