Funny Bunny Monday Meme*day

Mutts by Patrick McDonnell

Adopt - don't shop. Bunnies are very social animals - consider adopting a bonded pair. If you already have one bun, contact your local House Rabbit Society (HRS) or other animal shelter about arranging some speed dating for your bunny (this should be supervised by someone with experience).

Ethel in her digging box

If you are a regular RR reader, you know that Sunday mornings is the regular time for cleaning the bunny pen. Everything is moved and disassembled to vacuum.

One of our best bunny purchases was their "fun house". Here is a picture of it with one of the castle towers on top of the fun house. Bunya and Ethel are snuggled inside. In winter, they go up there to enjoy the morning sunbeam that comes through the window.

Here is a post about the fun house: The bunnies' new BUNNY THING!!! It has more pictures in case you want to try to build one. Ours was a one-time project/fundraiser that we purchased from GHRS (lucky, because I have no such skills).

Well, the top was off the funhouse while we were cleaning, so here's Ethel playing around in the digging box portion (~40 sec).


[When I look at the published post, I cannot see the video.
I have reported this to Google.]

Another bunny-human look-a-like?

A bunny named Anderson Copper... and a random human who looks like him.
Voting is via the Rabbit Ramblings Facebook page. If sufficient "Likes", it gets added to the bunny-human doppelgangers page.

When Bunya was small and single

Old, grainy video of a hyperactive, happy baby Bunya zooming from bed to bed to floor (~13sec)


For some reason, this video is not showing up when "published" to the blog even though it is showing up in the post draft. I will try to fix this later but you can also see the video on the Rabbit Ramblings Facebook page here. You do not have to belong to Facebook just to view the video.

Funny Bunny Monday Meme*day

This adorable bunny is adoptable from
If you were too slow to snag this cutie, they have lots more for you to choose.
Adopt - don't shop.

Ethel goes to Hollywood!

Well, the same thing for her - to one of The Dodo's cute animal compilations

The Dodo is an animal appreciation site and they do little compilations on a theme, like bunny yawns. Or another I saw of bonded cats and bunnies. This runs 30 seconds, typical of their quick dose of cute.

Ethel is at 16 seconds (yawn) and again from 24 seconds to the end (when she flops)

I shot a poop into the air...

Seriously, how do they do that?
Just guessing that the same speed with which they thump can launch a projectile wherever.

Happy New Year! (and some bunny care and human care)

New Year's reminder from the humans:
Bunnies do NOT like fireworks.
It stresses them just like other sudden and/or loud noises.

If your bunny's neighborhood is firecracker noisy, keep the buns cool and quiet.
Close the windows and doors.

If needed to "cover" firecracker noise, play music - peaceful, easy listening (not loud).
Think elevator music. No hair bands or hare bands. Stay away from 1812 Overture.
Your TV service might even have a suitable channel in its lineup - you just never tune to those channels.

If you do not already have boxes for them to play on and in, get some plain cardboard boxes (not slick or a lot of ink/color; no staples, labels or tape). Cut at least two openings in each box big enough for your bunny to get in and out ... they can hide in them, to further mute the noise and feel a little safer.

Keep them company and reassure them that everything's okay. Pet them if they are the petting kind of bunnies. Have a couple of healthy treats handy (Bunya told me to say that).


Hi there. Bunya here.

First, Lucy & Ethel and I want to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Please be careful in your celebrations.
If you drink, don't drive.
We don't have anything against moderate imbibing ... the humans don't know it but we always ferment a little carrot juice to celebrate, too. But we are staying home to celebrate. We hate cars.

Even if you don't drink, be careful driving, because not everyone is as smart as you.
Don't text while driving either. Just concentrate.

Also, be kind to each other next year. And beyond.
Be kind to all pets and animals, too. (But especially bunnies.)

Have fun & be safe!

Wishing you a very bunny Christmas!!!

One of my all-time favorite bunny pictures, my standard Christmas bun - and it's not even our bunny!

*Sigh*  Okay, Mom, I'll pose because it makes you so happy
and, after all, I am so darn cute.

This is Mr Cookie, one of the cutest bunnies ever and my way of wishing everyone a joyous, happy and safe holiday! Hope Santa Paws bring you what you want and what you need.

[Mr Cookie passed over the Rainbow Bridge about the same time we lost our Lucy, August of 2015. Sincere condolences to Mr Cookie's humans. The internet allows our treasured pets to live on.]

Rabbit Ramblings is 5 years old!

A few musings on our fifth anniversary ...


Thank you to all the fans of the Rabbit Ramblings Facebook page. It has become its own blog. While there may be a link to any new posts here, it has many, many more of its own cute bunny posts, alerts, news items and more. And as far as "reach", it seems to reach what took this blog five years (about 556,000 pageviews from 120 countries) -- around every couple of months or so.

Thanks to Bunya & Ethel for making our lives so entertaining.
Thanks to our daughter who smuggled Bunya into our basement.
Thanks to our son who suggested I start a blog.
Thanks to our other son, who mocks me as totally nuts and whose laugh as he's seen something that amuses him on the blog is a joy to hear as he says:
         Just to be clear, Dad, I am laughing at you, not with you.
         [He means it and he is not alone.]
Thanks to my sisters who, before this blog, probably never realized how many Bunny Things cross their paths almost every day.
Thank you to all you bunny fans out there who are members, followers, subscribers and, especially, the commenters.
Thanks to Dr. Mrs. Bunnymom, my partner in life, bunny crime and bunny care.

One very sad note from 2015 is that we lost Lucy.

Lucy passed over the Rainbow Bridge August 1, 2015

Thank you to all who expressed your comforting thoughts.

Wishes for the next New Year:
Healthy bunnies (or other rescued pets) for all of us
Greater capacity at HRS and all animal rescues - but not the need for it
Whirled peas - Tolerance among humankind, joint efforts to repair the world, good health and prosperity for all

We hope to see more of you next year!
