Unexpected Situation

“Be Prepared” as we all may know is the Scout Movement’s motto. For the lay person, we might have heard or read of the proverb that goes “prepare the umbrella before it rains”.

For those who have kept pets for a number of years, we are very accustomed to ensure all bases are covered. Having pets can prepare us to have children of our own and often times, having children of our own calls us to be prepared to react in all situations that may arise. Ultimately, we think way forward into the future so not to make blunders or mistakes when taking care of another life.

Having rabbits as pets can be very challenging because time is never on our side. The moment a rabbit shows symptoms of an illness, such situations can head south in just a few hours if not minutes.

Past experiences had thought me to “be prepared” for the worst and whenever the undesirable happens, I will take whatever risk I can to safe the rabbit. The reasoning is, there is no way a rabbit can survive surgery like how a dog or cat can when it is unwell. There is practically nothing much we can do and I hate feeling helpless.

The first thing that I will do for a weak rabbit is to feed it some Rabbit Nutri-Drops. This is a life saving supplement that have proven to be very effective during the many emergency situations that I have faced throughout the years. I believe every rabbit owner should have a bottle handy.

Just like many situations in life, it is always a 50:50 chance. Try and you will get a 50% chance of winning. On the contrary, do nothing and you will have 0% chance of winning.

Below are the “technical” information about the Rabbit Nutri-Drops:

Rabbit Nutri-Drops is a superior, nutrient rich combination of balanced high vitamins, minerals, amino acids and glucose. These nutrients support life and are needed quickly to restore a non-functioning immune system. Feed and supplements normally require 8-14 hours for digestion. Nutri-Drops does not require digestion. Nutri-Drops is the first and only oral supplement to deliver vital nutrients directly to the bloodstream in minutes while other supplements are still in the digestion process. Bypassing digestion enables maximum speed and availability of nutrients.

The Grouchy Rabbit

While surfing the net this morning, I fell in love with a website and I think I am hooked. Let’s just say that I am a little bias because the word “Rabbit” is part of the title of the website and it is Monday.

But I really did fell in love with grouchyrabbit.com because it “had me at hello”.

Just one sentence:

“The person that you hate the most will always like all your favorite things and ruin them all for you.” ~ grouchyrabbit.com

How true is that?

We Interrupt This Program For

I guess it is time for a product review.

What do we all know about Hamsters? Many people love them because they are cute especially with all the accessories like tunnels, running wheels and connecting fancy enclosures just to name a few. I believe those of us who have raised Hamsters at any point of our lives also know for a fact that they do have repulsive urine odor.

Having had success using this product on my rabbits, I decided to try it on my daughter’s classroom pet hamster. The idea of getting a “smelly” Hamster made the missus a little uncomfortable but surprisingly, she was the one who noticed the absence of odor when we started feeding Hamtaro the Natural Pet Deodorant Pellet For Small Animals.

Meet Hamtaro, Beth’s little classroom pet and fellow resident at Tru-Luv Rabbitry.

No more odor!

No more odor! And your hamster will beg you for more!!!

Hamtaro loves the mushroom extract pellet and we enjoy having him around the house without the repulsive odor that comes along with any regular Hamster. It really makes it a pleasant experience raising Hamster with this wonderful product.

Give it a try today by purchasing it online at TinyCritterz.com for only RM 20 (excluding shipping)!

Happy!

Remember a couple of weeks back that I posted about Buttons and Yohji finding a new home? Good news is, they have found one! I am just so happy for everyone involved and must thank both the current and new owners for saying “yes” to take good care of them.

Tru-Luv Rabbitry weblog is entering its 6th year since conception and I felt that I have been somehow “abandoned” it lately. I do not mean the rabbits but the lack of updates on this weblog. The truth is that I feel a little uninspired to write these days due to many reasons. I also miss the time taking photos of all the bunnies still living here without paying rent (rofl). Most part of the “uninspiration” can be attributed to the disappointment how information shared has been misused and abused. Thus, it can be easily noticed that most of what I have written lately seemed to be uninteresting and lack good information.

On the upside and like all things, there are also people with good intention which this blog has helped along the way and I am happy to see them enjoying the hobby like I do.

Aggression, Neutering & Bonding

I received an email asking me about aggression, neutering and bonding. Reading the email, I cannot help but to notice how intertwined these three words are when it comes to rabbits. They are in fact related to each other. Throughout the years, I have noticed that aggression in rabbits is mostly caused by raging sexual hormones a.k.a. the desire to reproduce. Since every individual rabbit is different and thus making it not a 100% sure proof solution, neutering can be attempted to alter the aggressive behavior. If you are considering castrating your buck, do ensure that you do not attempt to bond him with a doe within a month after the procedure. Apparently, “live bullets” may still be chilling out somewhere in there.

And when it is finally time to bond the neutered buck with a doe, ensure that you introduce them at a place neutral to the both of them. Meaning to say, a new area in the house where both have not laid their claim as either their territory.

Perhaps I should also open up the blog for discussion through the comments. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them as comments on this post. With that, I would love to leave you with a picture (as usual).

Worldwide Launch

It is only natural for awesome people to come together and create beautiful things together. So it is in the case of the people behind The Show Table and my father, Simon Chan. For some time now, Simon has been creating beautiful paintings of rabbits in particular, which have been enthusiastically received across the globe. We were looking for ways to reach additional rabbit (and other pet) fanciers and that was when Ms. Gina of The Show Table approached us with an amazing idea.

TheShowTable

We love her products and she loves Simon’s paintings – the rest, as they say, is history. In fact this is a historical moment because this collaboration took place across over 9000 miles from the capital city Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to South Bend, Indiana, USA!

Without further ado, here is the WORLDWIDE PREMIER of The Show Table featuring Simon Chan’s Art!

The Show Table products can be order at http://www.gbfarm.org/Order-Form.pdf. Additional information on products and fabrics available in Albums on The Show Table facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheShowTable
