    Default Kids and bunnies....

    I have my two god daughters for the afternoon, they are 3 and 5. They don't often come to mine as its easier for me to go to them but they have been desperate to see the bunnies.

    However they are driving me potty! The 3 yr old just wants to feed them all the time and poor Bungle has been hiding in his carrier since they arrived! I darent let them feed Strawberry incase he gets a finger and Snowdrop is sleeping!

    She has fed him the last of the fenugreeks by poking them through the bars of the carrier! We are going to venture upstairs and take a look at Strawberry later but only if he is on his best behaviour or someone may lose a toe!

    i know the feeling!

    even now and then one of my uncles or aunties would bring their kids round

    and once 1 cousin knows about animals... they ALL suddenly know and want to come around

    The poor buns run and hide from them
    so i just say they are sleeping, and they need their sleep.

    Binky Free Harvey always in my heart big boy
    Fly Free Milly will always treasure our memories together
    Fly Free Charlie & Belle you will be missed.
    Binky Free beautiful Daisy love and miss you forever.
    Binky Free darling Toffee, run free with Harvey and Daisy

    Alvin usually thumps and runs and hides with strangers, (well except when he bit the vet ) they are all mouth these bunnies, beating up thier mommies like little cowards

    Strawberry runs, but its towards people with his teeth showing, not away from them! He chases me out of his room grunting!

    I am hoping I can fob them off with just Bungle as at least he wont bite! We have already had tears as the 3 yr old stubbed her toe! Anyone would have thought I had amputated it the racket she made!

    I know the feeling!!!

    Wedding pictures!



    My signature might stay as the above for the whole year...afterall...look at those faces...aren't they rather gorgeous? I think so! I might be a little eager with the ChirsMoose spirit...or perhaps just a little lazy in not bothering to change my signature pic. The choice is yours!

    My two nephews are 9 and 3 and I have to say are fantastic with my rabbits, they are very calm and just say hello, I have told them from the start to move slowly and speak quietly and it's fine. They aren't that bothered although Finlay did put his hand through the bars of the pen in the dining room while no-one was looking and I spotted it - Gizmo was licking him. I have let Ness out while they have been out on the patio to stroke her but, she wouldn't stay still long enough so they were happy to just watch her run around the garden and she even did a binky for them


    Human liberation will begin when we understand that our evolution and fulfilment are contingent on the recognition of animal rights and on a compassionate and responsible stewardship of nature.
