The End Of A Book

Most of us like to compartmentalize the different phases of our lives and perhaps call them chapters. As for me, this is not just one chapter but more of an entire book. Almost three years ago, I embarked on starting a new book, a spin off from this weblog call TinyCritterz.com. Its objective is to serve and give our readers the convenience to use the rabbit products I use at Tru-Luv Rabbitry. With the feeling of excitement and gladness, I have decided to officially wrap up TinyCritterz.com effective 18th August 2014.

I feel that I owe it to my customers and readers to at least have a closure because as a customer myself, I would hate to have my regular shop stop operation without notifying me.

I am a firm believer of the fact that one cannot do too many things well all at once without at something giving way. I remembered back when I was blogging about rabbits on a regular basis, I was very focus and the contents were good. Since then, many priorities have changed (naturally) as with life in general, as a rabbit blogger and the only reasonable thing to do is to simplify.

Whenever making a decision, it is my nature to put myself in someone else’s shoes and in this case, my customers’. Yes, I have thought of you and I do not wish to leave you in limbo and cause any inconvenience especially one that will affect your beloved pets. I am doing this more for the rabbits than anything else if you have not already notice that. And of course for all the nice rabbit owners I have the pleasure to call customers and friends.

I am going to introduce someone who will be able to help cater for all your pet’s needs and this person needs no introduction. I have known Brandon for a few years now and he is such a committed/friendly/kind/helpful/knowledgeable person working hard for the same cause – providing good services/products to fellow pet owners.

Faking It

image

I have seen a great deal of interesting behavior when competition gets rough. It happens when people prefer to act selfish for self gain. I remember clearly in the past how competition brings out the “best behavior” when my father joined a fishing competition. Feeling impressed by another angler’s good fortune, my father humbly approached the “lucky guy” and asked what ingredients did he use as part of the bait. That guy just blurted out some nonsense which did not make sense and my father took that as a queue to stop asking. Of course in the business world there are many trade secrets that cannot be revealed in fear of losing out in the fierce competition.

As of late, I am seeing this selfish trend in the rabbit world. One in particular is when breeders snap photos of their rabbits with packaging of certain brand of rabbit food as background in hope of “promoting” the brand in question.

Unfortunately, there are many cases where the breeders do not actually feed that brand as depicted but the beautiful rabbit is the product of another brand instead.

There are many reasons however why people resort to such behavior and below are just some that I can think of:-

The Need For Acceptance

Being social being we humans tend to seek acceptance to gain a sense of belonging within a certain group of people we think might be beneficial to us. They know that their rabbits do not thrive on the depicted brand but just want to “kiss the ass” of certain people to be accepted within the group or it is a diplomatic way to be “in good terms”. I call that HYPOCRITIC

Competition Elimination

So that no one else have nice rabbits, showing others to the way to a product that does not work well can be used as an option to get rid of the competition.

So what are the implications of these tactics?

#1 – Misinformed Newbies
Those suffer the most are the new people starting off in the hobby. Their rabbits are not given the good diet and since they are misguided, they will eventually give up the hobby.

#2 – Good Products Made Unavailable
With the misconception, due credit is not given to the good product which slowly affect the availability of such product. In the long run the selfish people themselves not being able to have access to the product their rabbits thrive on.

So what can we do?

Simply, give credit where credit is due!

Genesis is suitable for Chinchilla!

Whiskey loves Genesis Alfalfa Ultra Premium Rabbit Food!

If you do a quick search about Chinchilla diet, you will notice that some rabbit pellets are suitable for Chinchillas. In fact, in Malaysia, a particular local brand is actually a repack of the commercial rabbit pellets imported from USA.

Inspired by that fact, we have been testing out Genesis Ultra Premium Rabbit Food on Chinchillas for the past few months. Whiskey (picture above) is one of the Chinchillas we have been feeding Genesis. The truth is, he LOVES it! His fur condition has improved as well giving yet another strong testimony how great Genesis is as THE rabbit food and now can be given to Chinchillas as well!

Why feed rabbit food when there are chinchilla foods formulated specifically for chinchillas? Well, we’re going for ULTRA PREMIUM that’s why!

In Genesis We Trust!

Tru-Luv’s Murdoch is one of my homegrown Holland Lop, meaning that he is produced in Malaysia. He was awarded #1 Broken Junior Buck at the age of only 16 weeks in both Show A & Show B and is blossoming into a very handsome young senior buck.

His consistent growth is attributed to Genesis Ultra Premium Alfalfa Rabbit Food. The result is obvious because in just 1 week, his flesh and fur condition has improved tremendously. This is definitely a highly recommended feed for both pet and show rabbits!

The future is so very bright for these youngsters! We call them the Genesis Generation!

Pet or Commercial

There has been many questions lately regarding the best rabbit food to purchase. We are truly blessed and should be grateful that we now have a wide range of varieties to choose from compared to just four (4) years ago when all we have are the locally milled pellets. I have nothing against the locally milled pellets except for the occasional sand that I tasted before giving the pellets to my rabbits.

When given the choice to choose which rabbit food to use for my rabbits, I usually ask myself what should be the purpose of the rabbit food, whether it is for pet purpose or for commercial purpose. To further help me answer that question, I ask myself how many rabbits do I have?

For most of us, we are pet owners at the end of the day. We usually keep one or two lovely pet rabbits at home as companion animals. We spend a lot of time with them and most importantly, we give them our best. That in itself speaks the volume that you need and will help you answer the question as to which rabbit food to use.

We also need to understand the functions of the many rabbit food brands in the market right now.

When I was at the ARBA Convention in Indianapolis last year (and I did mention it as well), what I witnessed was that, although raising rabbits is a hobby there, it is also a part of the agriculture industry. What I mean by agriculture industry is that, some of the rabbit breeds are raised for meat and other functions. And the point to take away is that, rabbits are raised by the HUNDREDS in the USA.

When they are raised by the hundreds, breeders do not buy 1kg or 2kg of rabbit food per month, they purchase in bulk like 50 bags of 50lbs (approx. 22.6kg) of feed at one time. There are also a large varieties of rabbit feed for the purpose of agriculture and each has got its own special formula. I cannot deny the fact that some of these feed are formulated with good quality and ensures the needs of the rabbits on them are met (or exceeded).

In Malaysia, some of the brands are repackaging of certain commercial rabbit feed imported in 50lbs bags. The problem does not lie in the feed itself but these repackaged feed is being sold at inflated prices. Just imagine a 50lbs bag in the USA may cost anywhere between USD$ 15 to USD$ 18 per bag and converted it would be between RM 39 and RM 65. These bags are then repacked into 22 x 1kg packets and sold for between RM 24 to RM 60 per packet!

On the other hand, pet rabbit food are specially formulated for the pet rabbits and the ingredients used are much more superior in quality. The prices truly justify the true value of the feed in terms of quality. That is the difference between premium and ULTRA PREMIUM brands. When you pay RM 28.50, you get what RM 28.50 is worth and that is exactly how much it would cost for good feed.

Today, in helping us to decide, let’s ask ourselves the following questions:

1. How much do we love our pet and if they deserve better?

2. Do we pay ULTRA PREMIUM prices for commercial rabbit food?

As far as I am concerned, I am still a pet owner given the number of rabbits raised here is not by the hundreds and even if I have hundreds of rabbits, they all deserve the VERY best.
