Top 11 Best Gift Ideas for You and Your Rabbit – 2013 Holiday Season

Bunny Holiday Gift Idea #1

 


Crazy Christmas Tree Rabbit Toy

We decorate our own trees with ornaments that remind us of our favorite things, and many times the ornaments are simply miniature toys!

The Crazy Christmas Tree took this same idea and applied it to your bunnies favorite things, toys!  This toy is shaped like a Christmas tree with Rabbit Toy pieces tied with sisal all over.  Great for heavy chewers and to give your bunnies home a festive look during the holiday season!
 
Lola LOVES hers!!

 

How We Became a House Rabbit Family

Contributed by Theron Peck III

If you are going to consider adopting or rescuing a rabbit as a first time pet, please consider a few words of wisdom from our family as you consider this new pet. Rabbits are unique and provide a special kind of love which requires more care than you may think. I wish you the best for rescuing a bunny and allowing him or her to give you years of companionship.

Therapy Bun: Rabbits and PTSD

Contributed by Kiley McNeill

About 7-8% of Americans will be diagnosed with PTSD, 5.2 million people will be diagnosed with PTSD in any given year, and 10% of all women are diagnosed with PTSD compared to the 5% of men. I happen to be one of those statistics.

I have had issues with anxiety my whole life, but after a series of traumatic events took place my life began to fall apart. My daily routines went from focusing on getting to class, studying, doing my homework, and hanging out with my friends to wondering if I will be safe when I leave my apartment, will I be safe walking to my car after class, and wondering who I can and can’t trust. If anyone yelled or acted aggressively, even if they weren’t being serious, I would have a panic attach.

How to Train a Rabbit to Come When Called

Contributed by Barbara Russo

My rabbit Luke has a very spacious enclosure, or “rabitat,” as I like to call it. When I’m home, his door stays open, giving him full access to our living room and hallway. This part of my house is rabbit-proof and safe for him to hop about and explore. There is a lot of healthy, enriching  fun for him to discover here, including chew toys placed in almost every corner, furniture that he can jump upon, and boxes for him to cuddle in.

Bunnies on a Budget

Contributed by Elise Sommer

Changes to a families budget can happen at any time, and the last thing a responsible bunny parent wants to do is give up their favourite bun because they can’t afford to keep them anymore. Raising a rabbit can be as expensive as you let it be, but, truth be told, rabbits are not difficult creatures to keep happy. Here are some ways to save money while on a tight budget.

Adventures in Bunny Proofing

Contributed by Elise M.

Once upon a time, I had a nice house. I had baseboards, drywall, fine furniture and everything was nice and tidy. And then I got rabbits. A now, it’s all just a memory.

Despite copious amounts of internet research, no amount of bunny proofing seems to have saved my home from two little rabbits.  Who would have thought that they could outsmart us?

Our first bunny proofing methods were to keep our rabbits to a single room, minimize the damage. This worked fine until we discovered that our older bunny, Coffey, was protégé to Houdini, and could escape anything. And then would chew on everything and pee everywhere. It was…enlightening.

Christmas for Homeless Bunnies – 2013 Toys for Hops Drive

Donate Toys to Homeless Rabbits
and We'll MATCH Your Donation!


This year many rabbits will be enjoying Christmas with their families.  They will get gifts and lots of love and kisses on Christmas morning.

Unfortunately there will be many more bunnies sitting in rescues and shelters on Christmas morning with no family to love them.  These bunnies are very well taken care of by the rescues who saved them, but funds are tight and many times only the necessities can be provided. 

Donate Now!

Baskets for Bunnies has again decided that this Christmas season shelter bunnies should receive Christmas presents too.
