NON_RABBIT BAILEY .......

This boy looks OK, don't you think? Cute actually!

WRONG! Bailey was a well-bred RagDoll, we got him young, who just did not learn rabbits. To him they were toys and objects to pester endlessly. Drove them nuts. Us too. We had to put up make-shift five foot high fences around every place where rabbits were. Looked like a jail around here. We tried, we really did. We had PJ, another RagDoll, for years and years and PJ was so sweet and easy going. We thought Bailey could be the same and also replace PJ. Didn't work - probably should have seen it in his eyes early on! Finally Bailey found happiness in another home. Live long and well Bailey.

Excerpt from an e-mail I got this morning - "I have a five month old Flemish Giant buck that I would like to place in a pet home. He is Walter's son and very sweet, there is no charge." There was a picture of this guy included. Walter is the grand champion show bunny Flemish I am holding in my Profile picture. He lives near Seattle. Any suggestions? Takers?

Finally, people did not believe these wonderful bunnies here in The House of Rabbits have NO bad habits! OK ... some of them do eat the flooring in their condos. There - satisfied?

What a sweet-looking kitty! Too bad he was no good with rabbits. We've been very lucky with our cat.

Yeah, cats can look nice, but we have a mantra "We like rabbits better." Hope the Flem finds a good home. We are down the Pacific Coast and I doubt if I could seek him by boyfriend who thinks two English Spots and an Agouti are just right.

No inappropriate peeing? No pulling of the carpet? No munching on books/clothing/etc?

No nibbling on the edges of rugs? Of sheets or towels? No mad digging to China on the sofa or the bed?

Give 'em time. They're young yet. My buns didn't chew anything for about a year. Now everything in our house has been bunny tasted & bunny approved.
