    Moving to NC--need rental advice

    I will be moving to the research triangle area and I would like to know what kind of attitudes I may encounter from landlords with regards to rabbits. For instance, will a property that typically allows dogs and/or cats also usually allow rabbits? In Madison, they are thought of like cats--you...

    Benjamin Bunny Jan 2008-Aug 22, 2011

    I know I do not post a lot on here anymore but I wanted to post that our lovely Benjamin has passed away. He had a thymoma, a cancer of the thymus gland, which is located near the heart. We noticed that something was wrong around a year ago, when he would sneeze many times in a row. After a...

    Supplement/treat for bunnies, esp with arthritis

    I got the idea to check the horse treats out from another member's thread on here, since rabbits and horses have very similar systems. I found these http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HHLYGA/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20 at the local Farm and Fleet store. They don't contain any ingredients that are...

    An agouti ND at the shelter--for the McClellands and PetBunny

    Hi all, I took lots of pics of this girl last time I was at the shelter because she reminded me of Pebbles and Charlene. Hope it brings a smile to see a young girl just like yours who recently passed. I know Savannah (the shelter bunny) will get a great home and be a wonderful bunny for her...

    Tony's 3rd Gotcha Day

    3 years ago, I adopted Tony from Heartland Animal Shelter in IL. Having him has really changed my life and I'm so thankful for his sassy, silly attitude. He was about a year and a half when I got him, so now he's 4.5! I know that's not old, but as he's reached middle age he's really mellowed...

    Rescue: Mr. Max has a sad story and needs a good home, WI (Adopted!)

    Anyone who helps at a shelter or rescue knows that it's hard to not get attached to the bunnies there. I always seem to have a favorite there, but Mr. Max is extra special. His story is sad and has human tragedy, not just animal suffering. His owner became homeless (in Wisconsin, in January) and...

    Home-Made Recycled Paper Bedding

    Hi, I got some info from a lady on Craigslist who was selling this stuff. I asked her how she made it, I finally tried myself, and it worked! 1) Rip up junk mail, newspaper, etc and place in a zippered pillowcase cover or some other bag with a zipper. I wouldn't fill it more than half full. A...

    A cautionary tale--about petstore bunnies

    I was volunteering today and one of our new bunnies has a story I feel compelled to share. "She" was bought at a "big box" pet store, of a somewhat local/not national chain. I've been upset about how they care for their bunnies before. They keep them on pine shavings (unless they're...

    With the upcoming holidays, we've got some travel plans that include the bunnies.
