Mrs. Sippy

Vanna may be the cutest drinker in the herd.

"Must I do everything myself?"

Rumbles takes the chore of lawn mowing upon himself.

"I know I'm handsome"

"You don't have to remind me."

The Loafers

Mochi and Ickus enjoy the easy life, lounging in the pans.

Action shot!

Rumble shoos away a kitten during outside time. This is advancement from his previous reaction of running to the other end of the enclosure, even if the kitten was merely staring.

Vanna watches the fish

For right now, Vanna's house is right next to one of our fish tanks. She probably has the best seat in the house with an aquarium on her left and then all the other rabbits below for her viewing pleasure.

JD likes parsley

JD looks like he is sucking through a straw.

Sunny Bunny

Hugs fluoresces as he takes a break.

Carrot time?

Kiwi isn't always a beggar, but she knows how to get you to open the treat bag.

The two-headed rabbit

Mochi and Ickus huddle too close and fuse.

Ducky Boy

I'm always calling Ickus a little duck because of the way he sits in his litter box. Looks like a duck on her nest. Except these are different kinds of eggs... little eggs that look like Cocoa Puffs.

Meet Rumble

We picked him up on Friday at the same time as our new hotot girl. He is a 4-month-old Siamese Sable. That accounts for his funny patterns along his belly. He should clean up and take on some nice color as he ages.
Dad is a fan of the OKC Thunder, so he named Rumble after the mascot.

Hotot #3

This is our new girl. We picked her up at a rabbit show on Friday. We haven't given her a name yet. She is 3 years old and a total sweetie. It took her no time to adjust to her new home. Her only drawback is that she is a kicker when you hold her. This will be our only hotot with "feathering" of the eyeband. We find it charming.

Making Peace

Last night Hugs bit me hard. He is always on guard when a woman reaches into his cage, even if it is feeding time. But once he is out of the cage, he is on good behavior. He will even let me pet him while he is lying down, like in this photo.

Gone in a flash

Kiwi was a slow and casual eater in her younger days. When she matured to vegetable-eating age, we discovered her talent in devouring carrots and greens. I can only take 2 pictures maximum per carrot, then I have to get more. She hoovers parsely in a blink.

Litter pan for one?

The 3 bonded boys have been upgraded to a very large cage. This means we can fit a corner pan for each one. Mochi obviously prefers not to share.

The biggest mess in bunny history

JD has sullied his reputation as the good boy when it comes to floor time. He dumped over this bag and then hopped in and started digging at the contents. By the time Mom and Dad discovered his scheme, it was too late.

Camoflauge Troubador

JD plays an open chord.

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Shh! This is my favorite part of the movie.

Kiwi spends some time with Tony the kitten. He is the shyest in the litter and needs all the socialization he can get.

Lounge pals

Ickus and Mochi are best buddies and their favorite thing to do together is loaf about.

Who's that bunny?

It kinda looks like two different rabbits with two different expressions.

Friday, June 11, 2010


Hugs got some running around time yesterday, but he spent 10% of the time chinning mom's pajamas. "Gotta make sure everybunny knows she's mine!"

Digging maniac

Hugs's favorite part of the day is when he gets to run in the yard. The kittens visit with him and he gets to dig shallow holes. I hope one day he will stay focused long enough to actually make a significant burrow. See a great example on Youtube:

A tiger in her den

Kiwi was upset to see the kitty condo go. Once her princess tower, now it belongs to the kittens. Do I sense some sibling rivalry brewing?

Holland Feet

They say that in rabbit shows, Holland Lops should have nice, stubby front feet that look like stumps where they meet the ground -- as opposed to feet that curve into an L shape at the ankle. I thought this was a strange criterion at first, but now that they have my attention, I am enamored with Kiwi's feet. They have become stumpier as she matures out of the "teen uglies" phase. When she holds her head up high and shows those front legs, I always have to admire and say, "Aww, Kiwi, you are so cute!"

Ickus: "You're the strangest bunny I ever saw"

Kitten: "You're the strangest cat I ever saw."

Hugs and the kitten

Our kittens have graduated to the outdoors. Hugs gets along with them quite well. They take turns checking each other out. Then he takes off on his own to do some binkies while the kittens resume calling for mama.

While trying to get a good shot of Mochi's lips after a strawberry massacre, I noticed his chipmunk-ish resemblance.

And then there were five

We used our Monday off to get a FIFTH bunny. The one under my hand is Hugs. He is Mochi's son, and an even greater Grand Champion than his father. Daddy spotted him online and we learned that his breeder was selling him, so we made an appointment to add this little guy to our family.

Hugs is currently looking for a wife, so if you know of a dwarf hotot doe in Oklahoma, leave a comment!

Ickus bit me right as I snapped this photo. He never bites, but he was very mad after his trip to the vet yesterday. They touched his eyeball. He apologized to me later.

Bowl attack

At the food bowl it's always the same. All boys try to eat at the same time. Ickus also shows off his ear-crossing talent.

Always getting into trouble

It didn't take long for JD to hop right into a puddle of spilled juice and dye his feet.

A cartoon I drew


 Mochi: "Ooh! My disability check came in the mail today!"
Ickus: "Mochi! Having a bald spot does not qualify you for disability."

By the way, Ickus is sitting in his beloved corner litter pan in this picture, if you couldn't tell.
