Bunnies are not just for Easter ....

We have 2 gorgeous Lionhead house rabbits - a golden one called Vivaldi & a black one called Fred.


Vivaldi - or Aldi, cheap & cheerful, came home with daughter from university & she won us over straight away with her antics. It was a steep learning curve finding out how to care for her.


Soon afterwards, the younger daughter decided that Aldi was lonely for bunny company so she searched for a companion & fortunately found a lovely black rescue bunny as the 'mail order groom' from a local Underhill Rabbit Rescue  centre.


It is most definitely recommended to have a bonded pair of bunnies because they are so cute & mischievious together - they like nothing better than to 'forage' in the pot plants on the patio ….


It is not fully appreciated how intelligent they are - they know their way around the house, have their quirky ways & can even operate the cat-flap if it is not locked!  They love nothing more than a good run & 'binky' (funny leaps) around the garden for exercise & are quite good at making their intentions known & they seek out our company when we are about at home, taking themselves up & down the stairs to find company....


even in the snow they wait for a run around before coming back in to snuggle against the radiator

snow bunnies


or share a bowl of freshly cut herbs …..


They have been with us for nearly 5 years already & as pampered house bunnies, they can live to around 8-10 years so it is not something to be taken on lightly but ... if you do, you will be rewarded with great personalities & company.

Bunnies are not just for Easter folks ....

    1. I so agree - bunnies should not be caged & neglected at the bottom of the garden. They are sociable creatures. x
