Easter bunny napkin folding


Materials: Cotton or linen napkins, starched

1. Fold starched napkin into thirds to form a rectangle. (If you're using a square napkin, you'll need to fold in half, and then fold in half again to get a long rectangular shape.)
2. Crease in half to create a center line for reference; fold top corners down along this line.
3. Fold up from bottom corners along dotted lines.
4. Bring left and right edges together on center line.

5. Flip upside down and over. Turn up bottom point.

6. To fasten: Fold left and right corners back; tuck one corner into the pocket of the other. Pull out bunny ears first; open up base.


If you are a little less formal, here's a video showing how to fold paper napkins:

It's not Easter yet but...

... 27 abandoned rabbits need help. Read about it and how you can help here.

Please do NOT abandon domestic rabbits into the wild. They do not have the same coping skills as wild rabbits and it is very often a torturous death sentence.




Check out the Bunny Advocacy memes here.

Do NOT give a rabbit as an Easter present or for kids. If you want to do that, get a chocolate or stuffed rabbit.

ADOPT - Don't shop.

Thank you

Special Bunny Monday Meme*day

A larger version of this is on the RR Bunny Advocacy page.
Learn before ADOPTING a rabbit. Unfortunately, pet stores that sell rabbits are usually NOT reliable information sources and sell products that are HARMFUL to rabbits; this meme explains several reasons why. Here's a post about one pet store experience:
Here's a great resource for some rabbit care articles.
Recent Easter Bunny caution posts are here and here.

Here's a blow-up of just the examples:

Easter Bunny Poem
Jul 10, 2011 by HRS
by Mary Brandolino
In memory of all the bunnies we couldn't save.

I remember Easter Sunday
It was colorful and fun
The new life that I’d begun
In my new cage.

I was just a little thing
When they brought me from the store
And they put me on the floor
In my cage.

They would take me out to play
Love and pet me all the time
Then at day’s end I would climb
In my cage.

But as days and weeks went by
I saw less of them it seemed
Of their loving touch I dreamed
In my cage.

In the night outside their house
I felt sad and so neglected
Often scared and unprotected
In my cage.

In the dry or rainy weather
Sometimes hotter sometimes colder
I just sat there growing older
In my cage.

The cat and dog raced by me
Playing with each other only
While I sat there feeling lonely
In my cage.

Upon the fresh green grass
Children skipped and laughed all day
I could only watch them play
From my cage.

They used to take me out
And let me scamper in the sun
I no longer get to run
In my cage.

Once a cute and cuddly bunny
Like a little ball of cotton
Now I’m grown up and forgotten
In my cage.

I don’t know what went wrong
At the home I did inhabit
I just grew to be a rabbit
In my cage.

But they’ve brought me to the pound
I was once loved and enjoyed
Now I wait to be destroyed
In my cage.

RR Submission: Motley & Ashley

Motley & Ashley are a bonded pair available for adoption from the Indiana Chapter of the House Rabbit Society.

Motley was submitted through the RR Facebook page because he has been dubbed "MOTzzarella-Cheezy-Poof" because of his beautiful, HUGE, white tail. (RR is getting tail pictures because of a passing comment about Tall Tail Tuesdays, but we won't go there.)



Anyway, RR did not want to just show Motley's tail because he is bonded with Ashley, so now we can show both of them.


ADOPT!
Don't shop.
