Adopt a Bunny or two!

After scrolling and trolling some of my favorite bunny sites I came across these two adorable adoptable lion head bunnies. I have included their info from petfinder and the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary. Check them out and send to a friend who may be interested. So cute!

Description: Snowy and Hanna are about a year old. These girls love to play with each other. When there is a box in their playpen, they will climb on it, jump on and off, and play 'Queen of the Box'. They are never apart from each other for very long. They love to chew on straw and wood blocks. Snowy is the white one, and Hanna is the orange one with dark gray stripes. Snowy's fur is so soft. She has a very laid back disposition. Hanna has the color and pattern of a tiger and the mane of a lion. She is a little shy, but still very sweet. These cute bunnies would make an excellent addition to your family. NOTE: Snowy and Hanna do not reside at the sanctuary. We are posting them here in an effort to find them a home. Please contact Donna Kracker at donnajkracker@yahoo.com for more information. Thank you!

Both are listed as litter trained and spayed.

For adoption information, please contact adoptions@rabbitsanctuary.org, (734) 461-1726, or visit us at www.rabbitsanctuary.org

Rabbit Fun Facts

Rabbit fun facts from around the web and my own reading experience:

Rabbits can see behind them, but have blind spot in front of their face.

Rabbits can't vomit.

Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents. Rabbits are actually more closely related to horses than they are to mice. Rabbits and horses share similarities in their diet and in their method of digesting food.

A pet rabbit can live as long as 10 years.

Rabbits can literally be scared to death by a predator.

Rabbits have a scent gland under their chin and they "chin" things and even people to mark them with their scent.

Softwood shavings (pine & cedar) should not be used for bedding.


That's all for today, but check back for more fun facts and funny stories, you'll find them! If you need one right now, check out the always helpful http://www.rabbit.org/
