She FINALLY made me carrot cake!!!!

I really like the marzipan carrots on top too! Yum!

Some days, you just need the box.

MUST

GET

THOSE

RAISINS!

Way back on Nov. 4, Hopscotch found an article titled Interview with Bean the Bunny. Written (and translated) by a pet psychic, Bean tells readers that even though rabbits love sugary treats, they are bad for bunnies.

Even though we love carrots and apples if we get too much it can make us mean. I was being mean to my dad, by batting things out of his hands and biting him. It was because I was getting too much sugar and my stomach was hurting. Now he gives me more lettuce and other vegetables. 

It was funny that Hopscotch found this story because Lola had just come off two weekends of being taken care of by ‘grandma.’ Grandmas, as you know, have an uncanny ability to give lots of treats to their grandbunnies. But even without special treats, Lola was already getting a fair share of banana chips and dried papaya every day for being such a good bunny. She did get snappy, but we just thought she just had an aggressive personality.

Well, on that Sunday, grandma was offering Lola her third banana chip in a short period of time (I have a feeling it was more than three, but I have no proof) when Lola pounced and attempted to lunge at her hand. (According to grandma, she spit as well.)

I’ve never heard a rabbit spit, and I highly doubt Lola did. I  have heard her grunt so I believe that was the form of communication used instead. Anyway, grandma was very upset and I was told my bunny needed therapy.  Instead I found the article and decided to follow Bean’s advice.

Lola’s been off banana chips and dried papaya for a week. And I’ve already noticed a change. Yesterday, I gave her a tiny little piece of dried papaya for making it through the entire week without her sugary snacks (after all, it is hard to go cold turkey). While she still gets a little moody (she is a diva after all), she has become less cage territorial. And she seeks out nose rubs more often.

And last night her dinner buffet consisted of more varied veggies, including romaine lettuce, basil, parsley, and a slice of green pepper.

Has anyone else had the same problem with sugary snacks for bunnies?

With the many choices for a bun to spend his or her money on, it’s hard to know which toy will be great, which treat will be delectable and which brush will really work. That’s why I’ve completed the top essential items all rabbits should have!

1. The Best Bunny Brush

Thanks to our friends at the Bunny Bunch Boutique, I now have a proper brush that combs out fur I didn’t even know existed! I bought mine with the grooming kit for $25, but the brush itself is $9. Check it out here.

2. The Cottontail Cottage

I spent many afternoons napping the day away in this delightful hideaway! It’s fun to chew, and light enough for re-decorators to move around! Cats, Rabbits and More sells it for $16.99. My human was able to assemble it quickly, which was an added bonus. Check it out here.

 

 

3. Trio of Flower Sticks

Every rabbit deserves flowers—but I prefer the ones made out of twigs! Head on over to the Busy Bunny and this unpeeled willow bouquet will satisfy your late-night cravings. My human bought me the cheaper version ($8.95) but you can get a larger one for $17.95. Check it out here.

 

 


4. Bag O’ Baskets

I’m going to linger at the Busy Bunny for a while longer because I absolutely adore their basket package. I’m not big into peeled willow, but I still like these baskets. For $8.95, you can get at least 6 months worth out of all these baskets. (I still have pieces laying around my condo!) Check it out here.

 


5. Sweet Meadow Banana Chips

For all buns with a sweet tooth… you must try Sweet Meadow Farm’s Banana Chips! ($2.79) They are out of this world. And while you are there, try their papaya and fruit mix too! I think I’m going to break out my bag now… Check it out here.

 


6. Oxbow Oat Hay

Let’s face it. Hay is a necessary part of our diet. So why not spoil ourselves rotten sometimes and chow down on Oat Hay from Oxbow? I like to get the biggest bag available, but you can try out a small bag (15 oz) for $4.25. Yum! Check it out here.

 

7. Unpeeled Willow Ball

 

OK, one more trip back to the Busy Bunny. I adore the unpeeled willow balls. I like to make them disappear by morning. ($3.95) Check them out here.


8. Heart Balsa Buddy

Head on over to Bunny Bytes and stock up on these wonderful Balsa chews.They are $3.99 each but well worth it! Check it out here (Item # TY016).

 

Now I want to hear from you! What are your favorite toys? Chews? Snacks?

I was going through my photo album this weekend and recalled a very fond memory of my banana chip delivery at the beginning of the summer! I am still trying to polish off all the wonderful bunny treats that arrived in that shipment! If I had my way, I’d eat a bag a day, but mom hides them on me.



Yum! So delicious! Maybe I’ll snag a few now…
