I guess I should have been in here sooner. . . Hi, I'm Lucy, and my bunny's name is Fujoe. He's actaully half mine and half my boyfriend Andy's. Fujoe is a dutch dwarf. He's 4.02 pounds (just went to the vet). He adopted him on craigslist. He's 10 months old, and apparently suicidal since he's eating everything he's not supposed to: paint from the base boards, oil based clay, plaster, plastic, and now the underside of the kitchen table. uf! He's really energetic, and will do 180s in the air. But he's cute! He's our first bunny, and our baby. I spoil him with veggies, and he's starting to be really affectionate at times- though he does growl quite a bit, he's starting to finally calm down. - don't you love bunny growls? You can't help but laugh! so there's fujoe in a nutshell. . I can't seem to get a photo of him uploaded for my posts (you know, under my name)- any help?

I have 4 bunnines. 1 male and 3 females. The male is named dusty he is a lop. He's such a sweetie. we adopted him from one of our friends..
our 3 females: 1 is 1/2 mini lop and lilac she's black and her name is midnight. She thinks she's the queen. and the other 2 are 1/2 siamesse satin and 1/2 mini lop but one's brown and with black markings (lexus) and the other is cream with black markings (kensey) Lexus doesn't like my husband to feed her. she's sort of grumpy Kensey is a sweetie. She will give me kisses.  Lexus and Midnight are sisters, while midnight is their 1/2 sister. (same dad different mother) All but dusty will let you pick them up.
   Kensey, Lexus and Midnight will be 3 yrs old on the 23rd and the 26th. We think Dusty will be about 3 yrs old, don't know for sure.

Welcome Spacey!  Now you're entered to win the drawing twice!

Your bunnies sound so cute!   It is amazing how each bunny really is such an individual. 

I have three, and Jack is the only one that will fight tooth and nail to be picked up.  The others aren't fond of it but at least they don't pitch a fit and are calm (for a bunny) during nail trims.

I really enjoy all the bunny personalities, from my independent boxing (sort of grumpy) Rucy, she's more just "Excuse me, I know what I want and where I want it",  Bailey - queenish with other bunnies, but sweet and affectionate with humans, and Jack - except for being picked up when necessary, he's a LOVE to bunnies and humans.   

Sounds like you have a wonderfully unique crew too.    So which ones have birthday's on the 23rd and which ones have it on the 26th?

Hi am I too late to dance??

We have 2 roughly 12 week old babies, not sure what breed they are, just that they are dwarf lop sisters, and were in the same pen when we bought them.  Although they do not look at all alike and i'm actually wondering if thier sisters at all, anyway Booboo is black and white and a real nosey parker, she is into EVERYTHING, not at all scared to explore.  She likes to binky for a while, then run around the room 3 or 4 times and then zonk out panting.  Mable just sits and watches while she munches in her litter tray, she gets exhausted just watching Booboo! and thats Mable to a tee, eats, sleeps and poops for england!!  But we have to keep an eye on her, if any theres any naughtyness to be had it'll be Mable that'll be doing it!

They love each other very much and are always rolling on each other x

They are our 2nd experience with house rabbits, We recently lost our original bunny Missy, (bunny heaven-not misplaced) and the house seemed so empty, so we decided to give a home to two bunnies.

Missy left a massive hole, but she was such a loveable, sweet and fun bun that we couldn't not have rabbits living with us!  They are so underestimated!!  Great site by the way!

Oh you're never too late to dance! Sounds to me like you've been bitten by the bunny-luvin bug. : ) I lost my first rabbit 6 years ago. It was a huge hole that I happily filled with a bonded pair. : ) They can'te ver "replace" her, but boy it gives me joy to see & take care of them.

Welcome!  Now you're entered into the drawing twice.  Thanks so much for the compliments.  We will continue to improve, especially the forum section.  So we hope you stick around!

Your bunnies sound so cute, and what a great name - booboo.  How cute is that?!

And I love how Mable is too. Jack can really get into a lot of trouble too.   The two females we have don't chew or destroy things like Demolition Jack does.

 People who have never had rabbits are usually amazed at such personalities!  And that they can be so different. 

Thanks so much for sharing!

my girlfriend and i got our first bunny a couple weeks ago and we love it.

we named her plop. she is an adorable lop. she is very lazy and curious.

i did a small amount of research before bringing her home, but perhaps i should have read a bit more. i didn't know that you shouldn't let them wander until they were litter trained. she is good about using the litter box while in her cage, but when she is out of her cage i cannot keep her from going on the couch. if i catch her in the act and put her in the litter box, she usually will finish in the litter box, but she still prefers the couch. any suggestions?

i'm an avid videogamer and so i have cords all over, but she has never chewed a single one. she is still very young and i would assume if she dosn't chew them now, she won't later. is this a wrong assumption?

Welcome!!! Now you're entered into the drawing twice!

Congrats on your new bunny!  What color is she?

As far as your questions go.  They are good ones, and are things others should know about too, so I reposted your questions down in the behavior section so it wouldn't get lost here.


See ya there!

Hello Rabbit Lovers!

I've been "haunting" for about a week now before registering today. Heehee ..

Anyway, I'm from Singapore but currently in Australia studying. I have 4 rabbits - BitBit (hence, my username and trademark among other rabbity friends), MaoMao, Dash and Socks. BitBit is an orange NZW-Lop cross while MaoMao is a Dutch-Chinchilla. Dash and Socks are their accidental offsprings. Dash is agouti-coloured and Socks is chinchilla-coloured. Honestly, I cannot be bothered about their heritage or whether they have "good genes" or not. They are just the lovable darlings I love and cherish as themselves. No bunny could ever take their places.

Having said that, I have also fostered 3 rescued rabbits - Stitch, Tryne and Kyler - before they were successfully adopted to kind and deserving families. They would, too, always be special in my heart.

While I'm studying in Aussie now, my 4 darlings are being taken care of by a friend who has more, if not equal, passion about rabbits and she loves my rabbits too. I miss them. Miss hugging them. Miss kissing them. Miss seeing their devilish-behind-innocent eyes. I'd reckon they aren't missing me as much though. Haha .. they're having a lot of fun with my friend's own rabbits.

Last but not least, I want to include a kitty that I took home and he diets with my rabbits - eating pellets and hay every morning.  Odd little fellow~

Right. That's all about me.



If I were a Bunny I'd HOP HOP HOP.
If I were a BitBit I'd be BLUR BLUR BLUR.
If I were a MaoMao I'd be VAIN VAIN VAIN.
If I were a Dash I'd be PROUD PROUD PROUD.
If I were a Socks I'd be BABY BABY BABY.
If I were a YinYang I'd MEOW MEOW MEOW O.O

Welcome to the forum! Awe what a cute little fur family you have! Bunnies and kitties get along so great sometimes don't they? I can't imagine leaving my two for such a long time. It would just break my heart so I can't imagine how you feel. I'm so glad that you posted!

Oh yes and congrats! You are now entered into the contest to win a goody basket for your bunnies! YAY! A present from mummy!

Well, I am glad your haunting got you here to the forum.  WELCOME!

How long are you away from your bunnies?  What a kind heart you have, and a strong one too.  The only time I fostered, I ended up adopting.    So I realized,  I couldn't foster because I get too attached.  It's wonderful that your foster bunnies a found loving homes.   Good for you!

I feel the same way you do about "good genes", doesn't matter to me at all!

Have a good day, and I am glad you stopped haunting and came out of the shadows. 

Have a good day!

Hi I just signed up. I found this site on Craigslist and thought I'd check it out.

I have a small farm out in east county San Diego.

I have a Pot belly Pig named Kikichio.

 A pitbull named Bella Rosso.

 7 rabbits SumerIsle (hotot buck 2 years), Gomi (lionhead harliquin does 6 months), Oni Guru (lionhead satin cross black sport), Arbez (Sable Magpie lionhead doe 3 years), Hoshiro (Sable Point lionhead buck 1.5 years), and Snake Food (SF for short, Chestnut satin cross, hates everyone.)

Not to mention chickens and cats.

I've been rasing rabbits for over 12 years. I really like them. I started with Mini Rex, Californians, and New Zelands (white and black). I have also had holland lops. The lionheads have been my favorite so far because of their great personalities and really cute look.

I'm looking forward to discussing rabbit care and health with you all.

Welcome Christine!  Now you're entered into the drawing for the bunny goodies!  

Jack and I (as well as Rucy and Bailey) are so happy to have you here!  Jack will be back on tomorrow actually! (er hopefully)    I have had to leave town for a family deal, so his "typist" has been MIA while the pet sitter makes sure he's taken care of. 

You're fuzzy family sounds adorable!    How is Ludwig?   I know he is working towards his  senior citizen status so I was just wondering what kind of energy level he has and what differences, if any, you see in him at this age at this point.

Hi! I'm Alexa, and just a week ago became the new mommy of an 8 week old English Angora. Her name is Lola, and she is a white bundle of joy! I am new to the bunny world and always looking for help and some friends along the way!

Welcome Alexa!  We're happy to have you here.  And that's what were here for  - to share stories and help each other out.  Plus sharing all the  wonderful joys that rabbits bring and commiserating about all the naughty stuff they get into helps too!

Angora's are quite a bit of work, but so worth it!  Absolutely gorgeous!  What made you decide on Lola?  Love at first site?

Did anyone tell you about what may happen when she reaches 3 - 4 months.  The hormone thing?  What changes to expect in her behavior?
