Robbing Robin

Turns out Robins like fenugreek crunchier too. Who knew...
Certainly not Bugsy Malone, I took this moments  before the robbing robin stole his crunchy.
Tried pointing out we have bird seed and he probably shouldn't be indoors, didn't take a blind bit of notice though.

Dining with a difference

Here's Oslo, eating breakfast on top on his play house so he doesn't have to share with the wife.

Friday floof

Let's face it there's not much cuter than a teeny floof following you about demanding head rubs.

Racing towards the weekend

Every bunny loves supervised free range garden time.

Hump day

Toffee Crisp is one of our happiest rabbits, he's always pleased to see you and loves a head rub.
I don't think I've ever seen him look grumpy...

When Kotten came to live with us earlier this year I never asked why she was named Kotten.
Maybe it was after Kotten wool?
Kotten candy?
Or Kotten bottom?

Hump day

Mallow has been having antibiotic injections to help with his chronic snuffles. 
Mallow doesn't like injections, he's been showing us his appreciation with his teeth on a daily basis.

Meeting Marshall

Marshall was found as a stray at a secondary school near where I work. He's a larger than life character with beautiful blue eyes.

Racing towards the weekend

Blue bear (aka Mr Magoo) racing towards the weekend.

Hmm maybe mooching in a typical Eeyore like fashion would be a better description.

But you get the idea, we're pleased the weekend is nearly here.

Blue will be less pleased when he finds out he's having a pedicure though...

Double hump

These two normally so happy a cute, looking slightly grumpy, why could that be? I think it was because they'd just been told that the box of treats wasn't just st for them. Another mistreated tale of bunny woe.

Hiding from Monday

Here's Eta, she's hiding from Monday, I'd like to join her, maybe not in in hutch as I'm not sure I'd fit but hiding from Monday seems like a plan to me.

Friday Floof

Fanta is stunning don't you think, such a good girl to as she's happy to sit still to be groomed unlike certain other bunnies (cough, Bunches).

Fantabulous Thursday

I think you'll all agree the adorable Fanta is truly fantabulous with all that floof.

Hump day

This weeks hump day photo features the gorgeous Crash bunny.
Crash has the hump because I couldn't find a big enough stool for him to hide under.

Tuesday Tail

This weeks slightly grubby Tuesday Tail belongs to one of our newer residents, Peggle.

Maybe she's born with it

Sometimes you catch that perfect moment on camera. (Well BHV does anyway, my camera skills leaves lot to be desired).

Here's the lovely Scully enjoying her supermodel moments with her mane blowing in the breeze.

Remembering Benson

Last week our beloved Benson sadly passed away.

Benson was such a lovely bunny and although we're not supposed to have favourites he was always one of mine.

With his poofy cheeks and little heart shape on his nose he was adorably cute, he was a grumpy, grunty little guy who like his partner, Patty had no issues with telling you off if you weren't quick enough with breakfast or wanted to groom his floofy mane. Our household are particularly fond of bunnies with character and this is what I loved most about Benson.

Binky free little guy.

Topsy turvy

Meet Topsy.
Topsy was handed in to a rescue by someone claiming she was a stray, when her microchip was checked she belonged to the woman who had handed her in.
Topsy originally came from a pet store and was purchased by someone who had done no research into her needs and been given little advice.
If that wasn't enough poor Topsy had snuffles, it was against the other rescues policies to rehome a bunny with snuffles and her foster mum couldn't provide her with enough space so Topsy has come to live with us at Rabbit Residence.

Sunday snooze

The gorgeous Anthem enjoying a snooze in the sunshine.

A firm favourite with staff and volunteers, we can't believe that cheeky bun,  Anthem and his even cheekier brother Albion are still looking for their forever home.

Bugsy's choice

Bugsy Malone: So let me get this straight CBL
If I have a wifebun I'll have to share the fenugreek crunchies with her?
& all the head rubs too?
& I might not get to have the run if the rescue any more if she's not as well behaved as me either?

Crazy bunny lady: Wouldn't you like a wifebun though Bugsy?

Bugsy Malone: can't you just let me have your fluffy boots, I can wash them and snuggle with them and they almost look like a bunny...

Hop to Hay

This years Rabbit Awareness Week focuses on the correct diet for bunnies, here's Harper with an important message.

Wednesday, 14 June 2017

Nap a day

The death glare you get when you accidentally wake some bunny up from their afternoon nap.
There aren't enough fenugreek crunchies in the world to apologise for this.

All I can  say is it's a good job bunnies can't use guns...

Romeo & Leo

Sometimes we get some strange requests from the bunny mum and dads who's bunnys stay with us whilst they go on holiday but thankfully 99% of people are really quite normal!

We did get a request from Aleah the other day who asked if her bunnies, the gorgeous Romeo and Leo could have their own blog post.

Introducing Romeo and Leo, looking especially cute as they wait for their mum to come and collect them later today.

We hope you enjoyed your stay boys and that we'll see you again soon.

It's all in the name

As you know we try never to use the same name twice.  This has led to some unusual names, sometimes they suit the bunny, sometimes not so much...

Oslo Appreciation

Today's post is an appreciation for Oslo, he may have dental disease, snuffles & eye issues, he may be ever so slightly grumpy about having his meds, but there's little cuter than a smooshy lop who follows you round demanding head rubs and who falls asleep in your lap.

Dastardly Dean

The other day I was feeding the bunnies dinner and when it came to Dean's turn he didn't rush out in the normal fashion when I placed his pellets on the kennel floor.

So I opened the other door and there he is motionless in his dog bed, I call his name, nothing...

I gave him a gentle nudge, no response, heart in mouth I go to pick him up expecting him to be deathly ill and he explodes into action.

It turns out Dean is a very heavy sleeper either that or Anouska has been giving him lessons on how to scare your human.

Life is a rollercoaster

The last two weeks have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for all of those involved in the rescue.
As well as having to make the sad decision to have Sprat euthanised, we also found one of the three wildie siblings, Pea collapsed and struggling to breathe and lost Christina following a tragic accident.
Our hearts break each and every time we have to say good bye to one of our little fury friends even know we are making the decision upon veterinary advice in the best interests of each rabbit it doesn't hurt any less.
We also sadly had to say goodbye to cheeky sponsor bunny, Moll as her respiratory illness worsened and her quality of life was severely compromised.
Zion, Laurel, Citroen all found new partners and forever homes along with Sea Pearl and Ruby Red who have gone to be house rabbits and Latte and Piccolo who have finally found a spacious forever home in the country after being returned to us earlier this year.
