Empty nest

image

This beautiful little girl in the photograph above is Mushroom’s kit. There was a little girl here over the weekend, looking at our bunnies and she fell in love with this blue eyed bunny. She was here with her parents and they were chatting and looking at bunnies, but the little girl was holding on to this bunny like she’s been her pet bunny for years. It was absolutely adorable! I’m still waiting to find out her name and will uodate this post then.

Molly wobbles

When I went to visit The Little Rabbitry to drop Chloe off at her new home, I got to see one of the first buns I ever had – Molly.  She has been with Tammy at the The Little Rabbitry for a few months now and it was just lovely to her hopping around with her wide back legs, not taking any note of anyone or anything going on around her. She is exactly the way I remember her with her I’ll-come-to-you-if-I-feel-like-it-but-don’t-you-dare-to-approach-me attitude.

And the passed week Molly bun has moved to a new home in Stellenbosch. Juli Hepple is now the proud new mommy of Molly wobbkes and she has a new long-eared friend, Lindor.

Here’s to Molly and her new family. I hope she’s happy and her new family falls in love with her and enjoy her cuteness.

Good bye Chloe bunnikins!

Today I visited Tammy and her cute buns at The Little Rabbitry. The reason I went is that she adopted Chloe (seen in the photograph above). It is sad that we can’t keep Chloe, but I have no doubt that she’ll be binkying with happiness with her new friends at The Little Rabbitry.

It was so nice catching up with Tammy and seeing some of her buns. Look at this beautiful little one (in the photograph below) bred by her. The daddy is her stud of a bun, Blue.

And this cutie pie (in the photograph below) was so adorable. His name is Hopson and he is a friendly, attention loving bunny. I love his colouring and his beautiful big brown eyes. He comes from Redberry Rabbits in Montague.

Thanks Tammy for making space for Chloe. Enjoy her, but remember to be weary of her moods!!

Levi has another fan

A friend of mine visited a day or two ago and it was the first time she handled rabbits. Of course she was at the right place if she wanted to be around bunnies and get to know how adorable they can be.

She was crazy about the small kits – obviously – they are so cute. But when she picked Levi up, he charmed her into being her favourite of all! He was so calm and sweet with her that I almost felt jealous! Levi really knows how to win hearts with those big blue eyes and little bunny kisses he makes in your neck…

Growing up so fast

Clover’s little kit is on the dot 8 weeks old now. She is such a little angel – so playful, loving and friendly. She loves attention and even makes her mommy a little jealous every now and then, if you ask me. As everyone knows, Clover is the favourite here and likes to make sure we don’t forget it, and no one else steels any of it away from her. In the photograph below, the two are quite snuggy together. It took a while for Clover to have babies, but she was really a good mommy to this little one!

Hop hop – right into my heart!

Mushroom and Levi’s kit is now 2 weeks old already. It has just started coming out of the nest and it is bouncing around the cage chasing mommy for milk! It seems to have Mushrooms’ very lively personality – hopping around like a little crazy monkey bunny. We were so hoping for blue eyes, but unfortunately that did not happen… Brown eyes does not make it any less cute, though!

Zoey’s first litter

IMG_20130516_072953
During the night of Wednesday, 15 May 2013, Zoey had 3 little kits. In the photograph above it is noticable that the small one on the right is a peanut. Although I have seen this happen so many times, it remains terrible and so sad. It lived for 2 days and this morning it was dead. The other 2 are strong, lively and quite healthy. They have their mommy’s colouring.

Mushroom’s first kit

IMG_20130506_092832
Mushroom had one little kit yesterday morning, 5 May 2013. So far it seems healthy and well looked after. It is her first kit, so we are keeping a close eye. The kit seems to have “dutch” markings, but we will be able to see better in a few days.

Noah & Zoey

Chloe and Zoey came back from their owners to us as they could no longer keep them. Now Zoey and Noah, in the photograph above, are together and we are excited to see what their kits will look like. Chloe has not been paired with any bucks and we are not sure if we are actually going to pair her up. She has been fighting with her sister Zoey for quite a while and we think we may try to find her a new home, rather. She is very cute and cuddly, but does not like to share attention. She likes to be princess of her own palace! This is an old photograph of the two sisters, below.

Mushroom & Levi

Levi and Mushroom have been paired up and Mushroom is at 30 days today in her pregnancy. I am very hopeful to have little black and white buns and maybe even one with blue eyes. Obviously I will keep you posted on the results! Happy weekend to all our bunny friends!
