Jester Mouf

Bunnies have teeth that constantly grow, which they wear down by many daily hours of grazing. Evil human meddling with their evolution to breed cuter, rounder-faced bunnies is likely to blame for many of the dental issues we see. When the top teeth don't grow straight and in line with the bottom teeth they don't wear properly and evenly. Consequently we have bunnies who either suffer regular dentals at the vets or, in the worse cases, end up having the offending teeth removed.

As if they know it's our faults, bunnies who have had their incisors (front teeth) removed always look as though they about a second away from sticking their tongues out at us...

Whisky And Tim

I came home from the Rescue today, I opened Whisky's gate and wandered into the bathroom to wash my hands before handling his food. When I came back to give him his dinner he had disappeared. I put the pellets on his plate, I fed, Anouska and Bobbit, but still no sign of my little boy. I found him downstairs on the sofa in front of the TV. So that's another bad habit I've (accidentally) taught him.

Addiction to comedy-drama aside, he is a regular rabbit, honest! Look! Here he is eating Timothy hay!

A Barrowing Tail

"Look guys, I'm just saying maybe we don't ALL need to keep a look out for the breakfast barrow at the same time..."

Hand-Nosh Only

One of the most enjoyable activities at the Rescue for me is hanging out with the 'wild' and wild-cross rabbits. Rabbits so naturally flighty, when you can sit on the ground and they trust you enough to come up and take snacks right out of your hand, it can only put a massive smile on your face.

"Really? Mine too!"

Teal-Spin

Rabbits constantly amaze me. For example, how does Teal spin his head so fast without his brain flying right out of his ears (or at least falling over after)?!

Wisdom of the Ancients

"A wise old bun once said, 'Breakfast is more than just the food you see before you'. And don't bother looking it up, it was ME that said it, just now. So get with the 'more' already..."
