SEND COOL ...

Hot here .. house is 82 ... outside is 84 ... going higher on Tuesday and Wednesday. Fans good. Bunns do not know about frozen water bottles ... they get as far away as they can! Maybe we will blow a fan across a block of ice and put everybunn in one room with that!

Poor bunnies! Would it be worthwhile to maybe buy a small window unit for one room?

poor bunnies, I'm trying to send you our cooling breezes. Would you like some rain too?

I'll second Crafty Green Poet: you can have any amount of bad weather you like from us, please come here and take the clouds away from us!

Letting a fan blow cold air over the bunnies sounds like a good idea, but will you manage to put all ten bunns in a single room?

Awww...poor hot buns:( Mine never used the frozen water bottles either, I have used the technique of lightly misting ears before, hope it cools down soon for them!

My Bunn's never us the frozen bottles either but I have gotten stone tiles on sale at Lowe's/Home Depot and keep them in the freezer during the hot season. Everybunny gets a cold tile to lay on. They love it. I bought 4 in tiles for the little guy's and the 6-8 inch for my lops.

Well we got rid of our rain and we are already at 79 and its only 11:30 so I think we are in the same bunboat.

Thanks for the ideas! It's 10:00 am and 79 in the house already. Got some stone tiles in the freezer and lots of fans. Two fans are blowing over blocks of ice (swamp coolers?) - one in Chico's area and one where the 3 pairs hang out! I think it is working ... Frozen water bottles too if they get desperate.

As we say here round Seattle - Keep Clam!

The downside of those cute furry coats :(

In NYC I would run my AC 24/7 for the rabbits and it was still warm in side (my AC sort of sucked). I'd put in frozen water bottles but they only really liked to lick them. Maybe some frozen fruit treats? I used to make smoothies out of only frozen fruit/apple juice and the buns LOVED it!

Chilled stone tiles -- genius! My bun also has never used the frozen water bottle ... I've always thought he would, if it got hot enough, because I have observed him laying squished up against his water bowl, which is basically the same thing (only less cold).
