Molly wobbles

image

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.

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!

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

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!

Bashful

This little bun has got be the most reserved bunny we have ever had. She is now 9 weeks old and still with her mom and two brothers, but she does not interact with them at all. She hides under the toys in their cage whenever anyone approaches. She even hides when they get their food or treats! She hops like mad if you try to pick her up and when you do manage to pick her up, she breathes rapidly ,her eyes look like they are going to pop out of her head and she lies flat in your hands. The poor little bun looks terrified when you try to pet her. We’re giving her bundels of attention now to try and ease her shyness; hopefully it will work. She is quite small compared to her brothers, but very lively. She seems to be in a beautiful bunny world of her own.

Morning sun

Levi was a happy bun doing his binkies in the early sunshine this morning. I only managed to get one decent photograph of him as he was flying through the garden like a mad March hare.
