The Neighborhood Park Bunny

Meet Mohan.

image

Mohan is the neighborhood park bunny. His owner brings him to the park every evening where park visitors get to meet and pet him.

Mohan is over a year old and is blind on his right eye.

I am in awe of the relationship between Mohan and his owner. Mohan will rest motionlessly on his owner’s shoulder as he is being brought to the park everyday and he will not run too far away from her.

The good thing is, it is not rare that we get to see rabbits being treated so well and it makes me very happy to see that even a rabbit is taken as a very good companion animal in a regular household.

Truth, Cock & Bull Friday

The amount of bullshit that is going around these days are totally appalling and I cannot help but to sympathize all new comers in the rabbit raising hobby. Day in and day out, new comers are flooded with information and misinformation by “seasoned” breeders and “self proclaimed” gurus of the “industry”. Like the usual, I would love to take on the role of the “bad guy” to clear the air and help confused new comers understand. And as usual, a picture speaks a thousand words and therefore, here are some photos to pick your brain. I did not say that knowing the truth is going to be easy and you still need a little brain power to reason before getting the answer.

I have made this a little more interesting whereby you are asked to judge based on whether it is the TRUTH, COCK (maybe, possible, iffy) and BULL (total Bullshit that is).

How Far Can Selective Breeding Go?

I stumbled across this interesting video and cannot help but to wonder what will happen if it is apply on rabbits. Is it right? “How can nature co-exist with the unnatural?” seemed to be the question that plays over and over on my mind.

I have heard of Artificial Insemination used on Show Dogs a while ago to keep stud dogs free from STDs and it does have a higher success rate. But the thought of collecting rabbit sperm and fertilizing does manually sounds a little far fetched.

Perhaps through “selective breeding” we can produce a muscular Holland Lop?

A couple minutes of fame

I want to thank Natural Pet for the invitation to be part of this wonderful video. Simple and straigt to the point. Representing Tru-Luv Rabbitry is Murdoch. He is seen here in his best behavior.

Among other lessons beside knowing that it was a hot day and I am a “sweaty guy”, viewers can learn how I hold my rabbits (the right way) and trancing one during grooming.

Hope you enjoy the video…

They Are Just Animals

Nothing beats spending time in a room with free roaming rabbits while taking turns to groom each and everyone of them on a Sunday afternoon. That was exactly what I did about an hour ago. The dustbin is now filled with fur, nails and whatever in between. Today was a little special because Faith gave me a little bunny hug. She likes doing that all the time. I was just sitting down with her on my lap after giving her a pedicure and manicure session. I believe she was thanking me for loving her and spending some “quality time” with her so she decided to stand up and with two from paws on my chest, gave me a peck on my neck. I hugged her in return and I could feel that she appreciated that very much. She’s a gem!

As the bunnies roam free and having each other for company, I went about grooming each and everyone. When it was Murdoch’s turn, a thought suddenly came over my mind. Something, somewhere and somehow spoke these words – “How can I make this bunny delicious?”. A great shock came over me and I was awoken by that thought! I do not think I was hungry after having had a good packet of Chicken Rice for lunch.

Chicken Rice….hmmmm…..

What makes Chicken Rice okay and Rabbit Rice not? I am sure some of us know that little hare that hangs over the fire and that could easily replace that piece of chicken in your Chicken Rice?

Just to clear the air and let my dear readers know that I have nothing against meat eaters or vegetarians, those who cannot eat certain meat due to religious obligation or those who have preference for exotic meat. I am writing this piece while trying to reason how one can make a smooth crossover from a Chicken eater to a Rabbit eater or from a meat eater to a vegetarian. Perhaps I am just writing this “just for f***s”, and in short just for the fun of it.

Personally, I do not think I will ever swallow a piece of Murdoch, Faith or Dimsdale for the matter. I believe everyone can relate to me that when you give a pet a name, it has an identity and becomes a part of the family. I cannot bring myself to “cannibalizing” my own family member. It is just weird don’t you think saying, “I ate little Houdini last night for dinner” and your friend goes, “You ate who!?”. Just too freaking strange…

But in all seriousness, what difference does it make eating Chicken? Just because you do not know the name of the chicken how does it make one feels okay to eat a chicken drumstick? I believe that we do it so often that we do not over analyze what we put into our mouth. The thought of a lively chicken going into our mouth just do not cross our mind. I for one will never be able to swallow a piece of the chicken if I have seen it alive before being slaughtered and cooked (seriously!). And the way it is slaughtered will definitely make it much worse for me.

Perhaps it makes us feel better knowing the fact that “They Are Just Animals” and being a type of food source seemed to be the sole purpose of their existence. I really do not know but am trying to figure out the thought process.

Whatever it is, edible meat whether it is pork, mutton, beef, chicken (poultry) or rabbit, they are all valid food sources and the fact of the matter is, even I prefer some over others, I do not have the rights to judge others’ preferences since it is personal what one chooses to eat.

My preference in order – Pork, Chicken, Beef and Mutton. Nothing more and nothing less and please do not tell me the name whose thigh I swallowed for my lunch, thank you!

Gollum eats rabbit too!

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)!
