Look, But Don’t Touch!! – Josephine’s Story

Article contributed by: Jeanmarie Short

I adopted Josephine from my local SPCA approximately three years ago. She is a beautiful white dwarf rabbit with stunning blue eyes. She was labelled a “biter” and in my opinion, a rabbit that would be hard to adopt out. This was a no brainer for me; this was the rabbit for me. When she was removed from her kennel to be placed in my cage, she began growling, grunting and lunging at the animal handler, and she eventually bit the woman before she made it into my cage.

How to Deal with the Loss of a Pet

Article contributed by:  Phyllis O'Beollain

Losing a pet is traumatic; no less traumatic than losing a human friend or family member. It is important to have ways to express and deal with your grief. Children have even less resources for dealing with their feelings of loss, so it is up to you as the adult to help them express their grief in creative ways that are age- and skillsappropriate.

February is “Adopt a Rescued Rabbit” Month

Article contributed by:  Phyllis O'Beollain

February is ‘adopt a rescued rabbit month’ Why a rabbit? Rabbits are quiet, very clean, and don’t require annual vaccinations (they do require an annual checkup). They don’t require daily walks, they won't go after the postal carrier, they will use a litter box, and they are comforting, soothing friends.

As with any pet, you need to do thorough research on bunny basics to make sure a house rabbit is the right pet for you (rabbits are generally not good pets for younger children, as rabbits do not generally like being held and a rabbit's spine can be very severely damaged from being improperly held).

Kissed a Bunn (“I Kissed a Girl” Katy Perry Song Parody)

Kissed a Bunn

(“I kissed a girl” by Katy Perry song parody)

This was not what I planned
when I went in the shelter,
I saw cute bunnies everywhere
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I'm used to
Just wanna take you home
I'm curious about you
You caught my attention

I kissed a bunn and I liked it
The feel of the silky soft fur
I kissed a bunn just to try it
I hope my kitty-cat don't mind it
They felt so soft
