poor bunny, its horrible when animals are not treated the right way. But I think with bunnies it happens more than with other animals because people usually know what to do with cats and dogs, but nobody ever heard anything about taking care of bunnies.
I got so many comments from people that bunnies should live in the forest.

Gabby, are you known as "the bunny lady" in your area? We had a lady who saved cats for a long time and she also would care for cats if you wanted her to board them while you were out of town. We called her "the cat lady" ...... We also had one of the "strange" cat ladies in our neighborhood LOL! You know the ones; 50 cats running all over and she's looking like a witch more and more each day? LOL!
um yeah I guess I have been labled as "the bunnylady".. because people I don't even know get my number from someone who knows i have rabbits or takes in rabbts and they call me..... I'm sure some do think me a Crazy rabbit lady just for the fact that I love rabbits LOL.. they understand cat ladies.. or rather expect cat ladies, rabbit ladies is something still forien....

One the vets asked me the day after i took Daphnee "Do you have sucker for rabbits written on your forehead?"... i said I must you wanna see??? LOL

I know what you mean Anna! I can't believe the questions I get about Bo. I had tons of questions myself and got him from a breeder! It was sort of busy and they didn't have time to explain it all I think.... but I didn't give Bo hay for about 10 days!

Thank goodness I went online to find out why he had soft poos!

Now I get the "doesn't he stink?", "does he pee all over?", "what fun can a rabbit be? They just sit in their cages don't they? most don't like to be held right?"

Bo has even gotten our cat to be more playful! He has been a wonderful addition to our family! :)

That's what I thought...... people call the "bunny lady" for help! You are the good kind of "animal" lady tho. You are the kind people call who have a problem, they call for a rescue,etc. You aren't the strange lady who eats the cat food with her cats LOL!

Are you? LMAO! j/k

you do hear far more about cat and dog care, but there are still those even who are totally ignorant.. i think they must live with their head in the sand because some of their care is so out there and everywhere you turn...

OMG! I can't believe that! Bo is so friendly! He's also got a great personality! He is obvious in his "playing" mean and things. I have also seen him"think"about something...... Lexi was holding him just yesterday and he wanted me. So, hesquirmed and then suddenly stopped. He reached down and just pinched her with his teeth on her arm LOL! You could just "see" his idea come to his mind!

Most animals have personalities!

Even fish for goodness sake! Our sharks: One is very friendly and comes up for feed and makes little bubble noises for us.The other one is less friendly, and hides until we close the top of the aquarium after we feed .. then he comes up to eat!

Our dove, she loves to have someone push her on her swing and will make noise until someone sees her on it if we aren't watching and she decides she wants pushed! LOL She'll swing herself, but there are times she wants us to do it for her!

Well, ok, if she feeds the cats Chicken of the Sea it's ok, but if she's chowing on 9 Lives..... I'm gonna worry! :p

My kids saw me using romaine (which I love) on a sandwhich ..... they had never seen me use romaine other than for Bo.They both said "OH, MOM! that's gross!" lol!

Hubby has fish, and yeah each one has it's own personality,my fave just passed away, they contracted a fungus, all cleared up now, the medicine even mannaged to clear up one we thought for sure was a goner... hapy happy fish now...

Oh and the birds squak like crazy when they see" their daddy pull int the driveway"

....... rabbit running free.. Any tips from anyone how to catch a rabbit who I guess has been roaming a neighborhood freely fo ay least 6 months???? not sure it will be possible, but I'll call back....

Don't Know if anyone replied yet, you could try getting a wire cage, or something like that, place it outside, put some pellets and hay in it,get the rabbit to go in it. Once the rabbit has gone in it a few times,you could attach a string to the door of the cage, and bring it into your house, watch and see what time the rabbit is at the cage. then pull the door shut when rabbit is in the cage. Worked for me:)Happy trying, Hannah

Oh, no, my daughter will "share" her carrots and bananawith Bo, but I was gross for eating bunny greens...... until I explained it's people food as well LOL! They were used to iceberg(yuck) lettuce!

They would say gross to the raisins unless they are chocolate covered! LOL!
