    Any tips of movies you can watch?

    I first viewed "Harvey" when I was a kid. Saw it again a few years ago and still enjoyed it immensely. Plus, it has Jimmy Stewart in one of his more unconventional roles. If you're a fan of futuristic television, Season 4 of "Westworld" debuts this weekend. Is it too much to hope for a giant...

    Accidentally Stepped on Bunny

    Why? Because all parents are omniscient? Gimme a break...and if the girl and her parents cannot afford emergency treatment for an injured rabbit, she shouldn't have that pet.

    Can my bunnies eat this?

    Here's a fun fact: the seeds of many varieties of morning glory plants contain a psychoactive substance similar to LSD-25! This is not a consideration for rabbits eating leaves or flowers from this plant. Also, the leaves and stalks (on choy) are frequently consumed in various Chinese...

    Convince Parents to let me get another rabbit?

    At the risk of sounding like Debbie Downer, it's impossible to know if the second rabbit will bond with Teddy. I believe the most prudent approach would be to acquire the second rabbit based on the assumption that they may well have to live separate lives, which surely will result in additional...

    Outdoor rabbits

    We may be (kind of) neighbors soon, as I'm moving to Rochester in 2-3 months..

    Poor hay quality

    I reside in the Sierra foothills in Northern California, and I sometimes obtain large bags of locally sourced hay for a huge discount, but the quality and variety (grass vs. straw) of hay varies wildly. Most of the hay I feed my two lovelies is from the Oxbow 96 oz. bags. They are a bit...

    Best way to clean hay

    I utilize the "old-fashioned" method of gathering all the large strands up with my hands and depositing it in a bag for disposal. Then I vacuum everything up with my Dyson "Animal Ball 2" vacuum cleaner, which is poorly designed for everyday use (it's a Dyson!) but also has enough power to...

    Does anyone have/do something similar in memory of the lost ones?

    I buried my first two rabbits in the backyard garden. For the second, I created a burial box for her, some of her toys and pieces of banana and strawberry, which she loved. I have two photos of it, but I rarely view them, as it is still painful for me, seven years later.

    Get to know each other game!

    It is believed by quite a few people that the thylacine species is stil extant, in very very small numbers, in the largely uninhabited southern half of Tasmania.

    Rabbit ear tagging, what is this?

    My first rabbit was a mini-rex doe who had originally come from a breeder to her first owner, my ex-girlfriend's daughter, who neglected her and left her to live in terrible conditions. This little angel had a four-digit alphanumeric code stamped in indelible blue ink on the inside of one of...

    Thank you for the expression of support. You are very kind.

    Baby bunny dying

    I'm very sorry for your loss. A few months after my mother died in my arms, the same thing happened to my second rabbit, who succumbed to an intestinal blockage. It was harrowing to experience these things, but I was still glad that my little darling passed knowing that I was there to hold her.

    Effective disinfectant for killing RHDV2?

    Occasionally, I have to allow a plumber or electrician in the house to effect a repair. Afterward, I bleach all exposed floor areas, which is a lot of work, but it certainly worth the bother to protect my two darlings.

    Dandelion greens

    I too live in Cali, and they grow in our yard. However, to feed them even occasionally to my two rabbits, I'd need a lot of them, probably twenty times what is out front now.

    Dandelion greens

    I purchase organic dandelion leaves for my two rabbits. One loves them, the other is not greatly enamored of them but does consume them, albeit not all right away. I feed them this, on average, about two, maybe three times a week in modest quantities (half-cup each), and have been doing this...

    can rabbits get bored of lettuce?

    Yes, exactly. My two darlings like both curly and italian parsely, but prefer cilantro to both. I've never had a rabbit that ate basil or mint, however. Nor bell peppers, for that matter. By the way, I see you're in sunny Buffalo! I grew up from the age of 8 until 17 in Rochester, NY...

    can rabbits get bored of lettuce?

    My two rabbits don't particularly care for romaine, sadly. I feed mine a variety of vegetables, including kale, collards, turnip greens, dandelion greens, carrot tops, brussels sprouts, broccoli, celery leaves, watercress, radicchio, cilantro and parsely. I probably spend about $50 a month on...

    Burdock Root

    Yes, I like it sautéed in butter, but it can be prepared utilizing most basic cooking approaches (steam, bake, sauté, simmer, pickle, etc.). It's used extensively in Japanese cuisine ("gobo" in Japanese) and found often in sushi rolls and salads. I guess I'll have to get some today and let my...
