Hoppy Holidays from your favorite blogging bunnies!

A big huge "Hoppy Holidays!" to our blog-reading buddies, and here's hoping you get lots of carrots from Santa! 

We are hanging out at our very awesome bunnysitter's house, with her bunnies and her foster buns, too!  We're excited for the human to come back, because we know she'll be bringing us some awesome presents :)

And in case you forgot, I'm still in a photo contest:  If I win, I'll donate my toys to the House Rabbit Network!  Help me make sure the foster bunnies have a hoppy holiday by voting for me, #2!  The winner of the contest gets $50 to spend on bunny toys, and I can't wait to pick out some awesome toys for my foster friends :)

I'm in a Christmas bunny photo contest!!

Wheeeeee, I'm a finalist in a bunny photo contest:

Here's my picture, but you'll have to hop on over to the contest and vote for me to see my silly caption!  I have also promised to use any money I win in this contest to buy toys for the foster bunnies at the House Rabbit Network, where my best friend Logan came from :)

Mommmm, there's something under the bed!

"Eeeeek!  There is something hiding in our house!  It has furry feets..."

"... and it has looooong whiskers!  Quick, tell the human to come save us!"

The human made us a BUNgalow!

And your human can, too!  Here's what you need: 1 big box, another box of the exact same size OR a big flat piece of cardboard, scissors and/or a knife (yup, be careful with these!), and a marker.  Oh, and some bunnies, of course.

Step 1: Find a box.  Our human uses the boxes our hay comes in.  The BUNgalow is easiest to make if you have two boxes of exactly the same size.

Step 2: Cut a piece of cardboard that is exactly the same length and width as your big box- this will be the second level!  Don't forget to add "tabs"- these tabs will go through the big box and hold up the second floor. 

Step 3: Make sure your rabbit approves of your engineering.

Step 4: Put the second level in, and using a marker, note where the tabs hit the sides of the big box.  You'll need to cut slits for the tabs to go through.  Remove the 2nd level, carefully cut in a straight line where the tabs are, then carefully put the 2nd level back in and push the tabs through the slits.  You may want to bend the tabs over and tape them if you're using less-than-super-thick cardboard (we don't want any BUNgalows collapsing under the next big bunquake!)

Step 5: Add some doors, windows, more doors, and more windows, and then add some decoration with non-toxic markers (Don't worry, we'll take care of the interior decorating!).  We recommend having at least 2 doors on each level.  Our human also put a skylight in the ceiling for us to hop out of the BUNgalow and onto our roofdeck :)

Typical us!  I think this is great fun, but Logan refuses to go in until I've thoroughly tested everything to make sure it's safe and that there are no bunny-eating monsters inside... which, of course, there are not.  Silly Logan.

We're BACK!

Phew, it's been awhile!  Don't worry, we're still alive and hoppin' (well, one of us is hopping more than the other, as usual).  We moved into a lovely apartment with plenty of rooms to explore, and best of all, we have our very own room!  Too bad the human STILL hasn't learned how to knock before she comes in. 

Here's a pic of our new digs.  The human just HAD to surround our room with wire grids and our exercise pen- she says it's so we can't destroy any more walls (in my defense, I've only destroyed one wall, and that was totally an accident!).  We love the brown shelf on the right.  The bottom is a cozy hiding and napping spot, especially when we drag our towels inside to lay on.  The human stores our toys on the top shelf so she can easily switch out our toys when we get bored.  We don't chew on the shelf, so the human says that it can stay permanently in our room.  The table on the left is for all of our supplies, like the air filter and our pellets, and the human's lint rollers (our silly human doesn't like being covered in our hair, but we thought rabbit fur was fashionable).  When the human is home, she leaves the door open, and we can run around her whole apartment- but she says it's only because she covered up my very favorite place, the TV cord jungle.  I looooooveeeee chewing on TV cords, but the human says I could be toast if I keep up that habit.  I'm not sure what toast is, but I think I prefer being a rabbit to being toast. 

Check out the TV cage- I think it's there so the TV can't escape and attack us.

Hoppy father's day!

Speaking of fathers...
We thought it would be cool to see what our babies would look like...
Babies with one fuzzy side, and one black and white side!

(er, if we capable of having babies, that is.. yup, we're fixed, no babies here!)

We hope everybun is having a very hoppy bunday and a hoppy father's day, too!

A yummy, sustainable project: an apartment garden!

To make up for leaving us behind while she went on vacation, the human planted us a garden!  We live in an upstairs apartment, but we have a lovely porch with lots of space for an apartment-sized garden.

To make your very own apartment garden, here's what you'll need:
-A big planter (we recommend the long trough-like ones)
-Lots of soil
-Plants and seeds of bunny-safe herbs and veggies

First comes the hard part: deciding what to put in your apartment garden!  My favorite veggie is romaine lettuce, so the human bought some lettuce seeds.  Logan loves cilantro and parsley, so the human bought baby herb plants to put in our garden.

Next, it's time to fill up the planter!  The human puts rocks at the bottom of the planter for drainage, but some planters have a built-in drainage system.  The human filled our planter halfway up with dirt.

Now the fun part: planting!  The human first dug little holes for the herb plants, carefully placed the plants in the holes, and filled the space between them with soil.  After putting the plants in, the planter should be almost filled to the top with dirt.  The human sprinkled the lettuce seeds on top and covered them with a handful of dirt.

See?  Instant apartment garden!  Don't forget to water your garden when needed- and we know you won't forget to share the bounty with your bunnies!
