I have always been an animal lover. My first pet was a betta fish named Bubbles. From there I had two guinea pigs: Mr. Squeakers and Piglet. After their passing I got my first rabbit Butterscotch who was a large mini rex rabbit. Back in those days I probably made all the wrong mistakes with that rabbit. I was young and had a lot of learning to do about what is good for rabbits and how they differ from their rodent counterparts.
This Blog is dedicated to a better future for our furry friends. There are many bunny myths about owning a pet rabbit. I hope to disprove these and educate rabbit owners about simple ways to improve their rabbit's lives.
Now for some introductions to my pet rabbits:
Ginny (as in Ginny Weasley) is our newest addition. She is a sweet Holland Lop doe weighing about 2 pounds. She was born on December 8, 2013 and came into our lives February 19, 2014. We adopted her from a sweet family not too far from us. Ginny doesn't mind being held and will stay quite calm if she is sitting in your lap or held like a baby. Leo and Ginny love to romp around together and are just getting to know one another. Leo loves to groom Ginny (what a gentleman!). She is very curious and enjoys following us around our apartment (she isn't afraid of the linoleum like Leo but he is more brave now that he has someone to follow). Ginny doesn't get any treats yet because she is too little but she does get loads of alfalfa hay and we are transferring her to a diet of Oxbow young rabbit food. Right now Leo and Ginny live separately until she is fixed (early April). Their cages are right up next to one another so they an still talk and almost touch one another's noses through the bars. Below are some fun pictures of them playing with one another.

Resting in one another's company all "flopped" out.
