Look what I got! My dear friend Mary Wadsworth from Blooming Ideas gave me this award! Mary is a very talented artist that makes the most whimsical and happy art. Every year I purchase a new ornament for my bunny tree. This year I just had to have Twinkle Toes Tilly from Mary! Isn't she fabulous!
Hop over and visit with Mary. She also has new creations in "The Land of Glee." I could live in the land of glee! Thanks so much Mary!
Ok, now I'm suppose to say 7 things about me. Hmmmm....you already know a lot about me. How about 7 things about bunnies instead??
Even though Razzy is considered a "mini lop" he is anything but mini. You should never ever pick a rabbit up by it's ears or by the back of the neck! Ouch! Always support their butt. They are fragile creatures and if held wrong, you could snap their back if they get to wiggling to hard to get away.
Bunnies are very clean animals. They groom themselves and each other all the time just like cats. However, bunnies cannot cough up a hairball or puke. Therefore, Timothy hay is very important to their digestive system. Razzy and Sugar get a lot of fresh hay daily. They also get a piece of Papaya at night. Something in the papaya helps the hair pass through their system.
Bunnies are prey animals and therefore feel comforted if they can hide in something. A cardboard box works great and they can chew it up and redecorate it as they see fit.
Like me, bunnies are vegetarians. They need fresh greens and herbs in their diet every day. Razzy and Sugar like green leaf lettuce, parsley, cilantro, kale, and dandelion greens. They get a sliver of carrot each day too as a treat. They only get a small amount of pellets as to many pellets as well as to much fruit can make them fat. Like people, bunnies can have a sweet tooth and will eat to many sweets if you let them.
Bunnies can use a litter box and it's very easy to train them. In fact, they practically train themselves. I use Carefresh litter (a recycled, biodegradable paper) in the bottom of the box. Then we put Timothy Hay on top. Bunnies like to eat and poop a the same time. I layer new hay on top in the morning and at night. I change the litter box every other day. Just dump it and rinse with vinegar and water. One nice thing about bunnies is they don't have stinky litter. Bunnyville pretty much smells like hay.
Well there are more or less 7 things. Now I would like to share this award with my following friends in blog land.
I enjoy visiting with each and every one of these friends. Hop over and visit with them!
