Check out the latest little gift box from our friends at BunnyBytes.com! Each festive tin contains an assortment of large and small Heart Beets, in our original Heart shape. And you will notice when you receive the order how much more red they are now. Same large amount of hay, but we found a way to get more color.
This morning, Tilbert and Violet stretched out like they have never done before. Violet stretched her legs out long between the two rugs on the radiant heat floor. Then Tilbert plopped himself right next to her butt.
Even as I walked around and took lots of pics, they didn’t get up or changed position. It must have been a GREAT breakfast.
Tilbert hates car rides, but loves car magazines and cars made of yucca.
Violet, meanwhile, enjoys her dinner of romaine, parsley, and Bunfectionary Chomping Chafe, a mixture of Bunny Biscotti chafe, dried vegetables, and tasty experiments like spinach paper, pineapple glass, and fruit powders.
As the year comes to a close, we’d like to remind people that they may be eligible to write off the care of foster and rescue expenses. Check with the IRS or an accountant to see if you are eligible, and be sure to get that acknowledgement letter from the rescue itself.
Here are a few links:
- Wall Street Journal: good article on the case
- RabbitWise: good summary of the ruling
- AnimalRights.com: good how to article
Remember: Use it but don’t abuse it!
Our sister-in-law served this up last year, and we couldn’t stop eating it. Most of our tester bunnies love cranberries and cilantro, so we put those two together for a batch of test treats. Big fail, in fact, the biggest failure of any treat flavor we tested. Cranberry and Mint met with much better reception.
However, we still love it. So from our family to yours, here is Christine’s Cranberry and Cilantro Salsa.
- 1 bag of fresh cranberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup ( or more, depending on your taste) fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime jiuce
- 1 bunch ( or more, depending on your taste) chopped green onions, including
- some of the greens
- 1 to 2 jalapenos seeded and chopped, more or less depending on your taste
- salt to taste
Combine all ingredients & serve with tortilla chips.
Try as she might to turn the frown upside down, the smile eluded Violet. She vows to bite the next person who tells her to smile.
These custom dyed yucca pieces are bound for the elves at BunnyBytes, where they will be made into fun chew toys. We just made the switch from spinach to parsley for the green, and met with eight paws up from Tilbert and Violet. And the red–not as purple as the picture–is made from beets and their own wild blackberries.
Walking through a pet store today, we saw this pretty young girl being carried around by an employee. Of course we followed the employee to the back of the store, where Bunbun was placed in the cart next to the employee who continued with feeding the fish.
When I requested to take a picture, she offered to put his Halloween pirate cap on, but I said no, because I love to look at those BIG white ears.
